We love Big Emotions, Seeds of Faith! The characters are so relatable to today's family life! The style of the book and questions make it so easy to engage in a biblical conversation with our daughters. The beautiful illustrations help us picture ourselves in the pages. This book contains so many beautiful and valuable messages, and it is a great tool that we will be using as a family for many years to come!

Carlos & Bianca Martinez

With fun characters and relatable stories, Big Emotions is engaging for kids and an amazing book for helping them (and their parents) better understand their feelings. It is also a powerful tool that gives us parents reassurance and clarity on how to guide them in different situations. Scripture and prayer at the end of each story makes this book truly special by bringing us closer to God’s love. Thank you Pam and Kim for sharing such a helpful and sweet book with all of us!
