Three Picture Books to Encourage Faith and Inner Strength

I Am Enough by Grace Byers

Empowering and poetic, I Am Enough offers readers a powerful message and engaging illustrations that blend whimsy and realism. While it isn’t a traditional story or specifically Christian like the other two books in this post, it is full of positive affirmations celebrating that everyone and everything has a purpose.

“Like the sun, I’m here to shine.” —I Am Enough

It’s important for kids to learn to embrace all of who they, including their differences. I Am Enough encourages kids to see differences as by design and not as flaws. It’s what I most loved about this book.

It Will be Okay: Trusting God Through Fear and Change by Lysa Terkeurst

Little Seed and Little Fox form an unlikely friendship after Little Fox sneaks into the farmer’s shed. They fear the changing circumstances and what those changes might mean for their friendship, but they face it together. After all, the farmer has a plan.

It will be Okay shares a message about overcoming fear and trusting that God. The illustrations are charming with a somewhat rustic vibe. And a list of related bible verses have been included in the book—great for engaging young readers beyond the story.

This I Know: Seeing God in the World He Made by Clay Anderson

This I Know is a delightful story about seeing God’s love in the world around us. Over the course of the day, a young girl and her family travel from home to a camp ground far away. The young girl shares the ups and downs they encounter while relaying the message of God’s love.

Detailed, full-page color illustrations enhance the story wonderfully. They add an enchanting and heartwarming feel that underscores the story’s theme and spirit perfectly.

There’s so much I enjoyed about this story, but, most of all, I appreciated the spirit of gratitude exemplified within This I Know.
