Sammy and His Shepherd

The sweetlings and I have a very special book to share with you today! It is one of our most favorite devotion books. We have read it together many times over the past fourteen years, and we just started reading it again today. Sammy and His Shepherd is a simply gorgeous look at the 23rd Psalm. Though written for children, it is a rich, full, and delightful read no matter how many years you have tucked under your belt.

The chapters are brief, broken down into phrases of the Psalm. The story follows a little sheep, Sammy, as he meets and befriends a little sheep with no name who lives in a pasture beside his pasture. She belongs to a shepherd who is quite different from Sammy's shepherd. The writing is gentle and fun while reaching deep to challenge heart and mind with a fresh look at this beloved Scripture. The book also includes a "Talk About It" section for further discussion.
