Rightfully titled, this book takes us back to the beginning of “God’s Very Good Idea” in the creation of man and woman. Traversing through the key Biblical lessons in creation, sin, forgiveness and salvation, Trillia helps elementary-age children intertwine their faith journey with the challenges of living amongst different types of people. At the end of the day, the four key statements at the end summarize how we can delight in our beautifully different church family—God MADE it; people RUINED it; He RESCUED it; He will FINISH it. Our job is to enjoy, appreciate and love God and others. Amen.
