Author: Davin Whitehurst
Publisher: Childlike Faith Publishing

Are you ready to get your child excited about faith? “I Have Faith” puts your child right in the footsteps of Danny as he begins to learn about faith. Danny and his older brother have been wanting a dog, but both know their parents don’t think they are ready for a dog. When Danny’s mom begins teaching him what the bible says about faith, he puts his faith into action. After praying and releasing his faith for a dog, doubt and even his best friend keep telling him that he will never get a dog. Over time Danny never loses his faith in the promises of God and finds that God is faithful and that faith works. Come along on this journey that is a real life event that took place in the author’s life as a child.

This book has great illustrations that support a wonderful story about finding faith in God. As you are teaching your child about principals in the bible; this book will help you teach faith. What a wonderful experience it is when we can see our children begin to develop their faith in God, and grow from a tiny mustard seed to a firmly planted tree. The back of the book has a parent/child discussion which will help children gain understanding in faith and some scriptures that Danny’s mom used to get him excited about faith.

My Impressions: 
This was an adorable little book that helps children relate to God and their own personal faith. The illustrations were excellent and captured the heart of the story without coming across as cheesy. The use of a dog was a great analogy to use for this age group since so many kids want the love of an animal.. It really helped my son connect to the message because he has been down this path before. I love the way the author captured reliance on God and how things work on His timing and not our own. For a young child learning patience as we wait on God can be a lesson within itself. Heck as adults we need that lesson. It is hard to wait on the things we really want, especially when we are surrounded with negativity and our own self doubt. This book is a great way to connect with your children in understanding faith and the importance of waiting on Gods timing.


Book Excerpt:
“Hi! My name is Danny.” This is how I learned to trust God and believe His word.
It’s called faith, and you have faith too.
