Review & Giveaway: The Atonement of Jesus Christ is for Me by Sierra Wilson, illustrated by Corey Egbert

Heidi Reads... The Atonement of Jesus Christ is for Me by Sierra Wilson, illustrated by Corey Egbert

My rating: 5 stars / It was amazing


Christ's Atonement is stronger than storms on the sea--and it's Jesus's gift to you and to me. This reverent, rhyming picture book teaches that the Atonement can help us overcome any challenge we face, whether we've made a bad choice or feel lonely or scared. Help your children learn that when we turn to Jesus Christ, we can do hard things and become our best selves.

My Review

I loved this sweet book that helps children understand the Atonement and how they can access its blessings. Of course there is an emphasis on Christ, and the loving way He helps us when we turn to him through prayer and the choices we make when we need help. The illustrations are simple yet powerful, and will be easy for children of all ages to relate to. This is a great resource for introducing children to a deeper relationship with Jesus and a perfect gift for children turning 8 and preparing for baptism.

About the Author

She loves to teach and work with children, and this love has shaped her life from working as a junior high/high school English teacher and children’s art teacher to serving as a church children’s leader and a mother. Sierra is passionate about writing, art, hiking, family time, and eating entirely too much chocolate. She currently lives with her husband and three young children in the prairies of Alberta, where she is a toddler-chaser by day and a writer/artist by night.

Corey Egbert has always loved books and art, so when he discovered that he could create both at the same time by being an illustrator, he couldn't have been happier. His illustrations can be seen in The Niuhi Shark Saga books and the album covers of recording artist Rob Taylor. He lives in Manti, Utah with his wife Natalya, son Oliver, and their cat, Rex.
