God understands… and will always be there to help us find a way. Here’s a sample prayer:
For everyone, life can be really hard sometimes. But never fear: Father Joe Kempf and his furry friends, Big Al and Annie, are back with plenty of support. The best-selling tandem tackles some tough issues in this book in a way that a child will understand: If God is so good, why do innocent people suffer? What is our hope when someone we love dies? How do we go on when our hearts are broken?
When the heartaches come, these reflections, prayers, and activities will help every child find their way forward with God. In the back of the book, parents, grandparents, and teachers will find the coaching they need to love their children through the difficult times.
This wonderfully illustrated book meets the child (and the child in each of us) right where we are with just what we need. No one connects faith and real life like Fr. Joe and Big Al. Sometimes Life is Just Not Fair is the perfect book for when the difficult times come…and they visit us all.
