Today I will be reviewing a new book by Lysa Terkeurst, Win or Lose, I Love You! This book promises to help equip parents to help children:
First let me start off by saying that I had high expectations for Lysa TerKeurst book Win or Lose. I read her first book It Will be Okay: Trusting God Through Fear and Change and thought it was great in so many ways. So i was expecting the same great story telling in Win or Lose. Win or Lose was designed to teach children how to handling winning and losing with grace and dignity. However, this book fell short of my expectations. I found the text a little long and drawn out which made it hard to pay attention to the whole book. I also did not like the statement in the book “sometimes you’ll lose, but there’s is no need to cry.” Crying is a godly expression of sadness. Telling people/kids there’s no need to cry invalidates their God given right to express sadness. There are a few things I do like about the book (i.e., the note to parents in the beginning and the 10 Bible verses in the back about Words of Wisdom whether you win or lose).
So my search for a book to teach children how to deal with competition in a godly way continues. If you know of a book, please leave it in the comment section.
That is all for now, please continue to pray for me and know I am praying for you,
