You See Me, God: Inspired by Psalm 139 by Jan Spivey Gilchrist Book Review

Multiple award-winner Jan Spivey Gilchrist draws on her own childhood struggles as she creatively weaves images around this paraphrase of the powerful verses from Psalm 139. As children grow and start to notice differences among themselves, they can often feel excluded or alone. But the truth is . . . God created each one of us in His unique way and He has a purpose and a plan for each of us.

You See Me, God is a beautifully illustrated children’s book based on Jan’s understanding of how God sees her—and all of us—since before birth. The flowing poetry describes the beauty of Psalm 139 in a way children will understand, and the colorful, detailed illustrations will capture their imaginations, further bringing this important message to their young hearts.

This is the second book in Jan Spivey Gilchrist’s “Be Still and Know Stories” series which encourages children to listen to, talk to, and experience God. The first book is A Voice as Soft as a Honey Bee’s Flutter.

Book Review:

This beautifully Illustrated children’s book paraphrases the powerful verse from Psalms 139. This is the book of how God sees us through children’s eyes. The colorful and detailed illustrations gave this story life. This storybook brings an important message to the young hearts. This is a journey we all will take and God sees us all. It was written in poetry form and I can understand it. Therefore, children will be able to comprehend it also. I recommend this book to young children and their parents. I give this life lesson five stars.
