Recent release 'Anna Discovers the Heart of the Shepherd' from Covenant Books author Kimberly Dixon is a heartwarming book about a young lamb who learns about the beatitudes that give her faith and understanding of God's love for her.
BELLVILLE, Ohio, October 12, 2020 (Newswire.com) - Kimberly Dixon has completed her new book “Anna Discovers the Heart of the Shepherd”: a noteworthy read about a little lamb who is taught the beatitudes by Jesus Christ that grants her insight on God’s compassion.
Kimberly writes, “‘Anna Discovers the Heart of the Shepherd’ is a story that is written for children to teach the beatitudes in a way that they may remember. The beatitudes are a group of verses in the Bible that are found in the book of Matthew 5:3–11. The word beatitude means ‘to be in a state of complete happiness or joy.’ These are verses that Jesus taught while he was giving what was called the Sermon on the Mount, which is probably the most well-known sermon besides the Lord’s Prayer that Jesus taught. They are a group of verses that all start with ‘Blessed are…’ And here, the word blessed means ‘happy or joyous.’ But it is more than just being happy. It is a complete spiritual joy that is known by only those who have been saved through Jesus and believe in the eternal life to come. Now as in all things Jesus taught in the Bible, there is always order and purpose to his stories. Jesus didn’t say things just to say them. There was always a lesson to be learned when Jesus spoke. That is also the way with the beatitudes. There is perfect order in the verses. If they had been given any other way than what they are, they may not have been as well understood. With that in mind, this story is presented with the beatitudes in the order that Jesus taught them so children everywhere may learn their meaning and learn of the love that Jesus has for us.”
