"Your Magnificent Chooser"

Each of us are faced with choices, many, many choices each day.  Each choice has a direct consequence, whether it be positive or negative, for each of us and some of our own choices affect those around us as well.  John Ortberg's children's book, "Your Magnificent Chooser," is a great book to share with children starting at a young age to remind them of their ability to make choices and how to handle feelings that come along with making choices.  John addresses the feelings of worry and not wanting to make a choice as you may not know which is the right choice to make.  Also, what does happen when the chosen choice has a negative result; how should that be handled?  Those are just two aspects that are addressed that I love in this book.  Also, the illustrations to go along with the text are very well done, they are beautiful, soothing and full of detail.  I highly recommend this to use to discuss making choices and how God gives us this freedom and ability, but He is there every step of the way as well as our guide.
