In this heart-warming picture book designed for girls, author Glenys Nellist tells the inspiring stories of incredible women in the Bible. With beautiful illustrations by Rachel Clowes and sweet lift-the-flap envelopes, each story delivers a special message for children to open as they read their own personal love letters from God. Full of warmth and love, this picture book will fill girls’ hearts with the wonder of the Lord. The stories of Eve, Miriam, Esther, Mary, and many more will delight children and remind them of the bond they can share with God, just like the women of the Bible.
This is a colorful book for girls ages 4-8 that features Bible stories that will help them learn about the Bible, important women who are part of “His-Story,” and draw closer to God. The stories are more for the elementary age, but it makes for a good nighttime routine where a parent could read to the girl.
The illustrations are colorful and feminine, very attractive for a little girl. What sets the book apart is each story has an envelope flap that the girl can open. It is a letter that can be addressed to the reader, and it is an encouragement from God. Just reading it for myself was a special experience. I could see where a little girl would see her name (if you filled it in ahead of time) and be excited to see what God has to say to her.
I think this is a great book for any girl’s library. If they are the younger side, they will appreciate being read to and looking at the pictures. For the older girls, the stories they can read themselves and the letters from God make this is a book they won’t forget.
I definitely recommend LOVE LETTERS FROM GOD.
I received this book from the publisher and the review is my own honest opinion.

Sophia is struggling over loss and unmet expectations. When she needed her husband the most, the war came between them. Her grandmother, Lucia, is the one person who understands Sophia’s grief. Lucia shares her love letters written during WWII to provide a glimpse of hope for Sophia. Is it enough?
I loved how the story spans two love stories, two wars, two situations where love and hope abide. The author does a great job using Lucia’s experiences from days gone by to help Sophia. The letters are based on actual love letters from the author’s grandparents. The cover picture is also the author’s grandparents. Knowing that adds to the beautiful tapestry woven throughout the book.
This is a beautiful read filled with love and hope.
Two men fighting for their country. Two women dealing with tragedy alone. Two different stories, two different eras, one common thread. Sophia Philips, a wife and mom, finds herself missing the two most important people in her life. One ripped from her because of war, the other by death. Sophia’s grandmother, Lucia Snell, gives her an early inheritance; letters written to her by her husband while stationed in China during World War II. Lucia believes these letters will help her granddaughter heal from the heart-wrenching tragedy she faces. Will Sophia carry the anger, bitterness, and guilt within her or go to the only One who can heal her from the pain? Will she find the strength to carry on and the will to survive through her grandparents’ Letters of Love?
