Children need Holy Spirit too!
Jesus promised that the Father would send Holy Spirit to be our: helper, encourager, guide, and comforter. And He did at Pentecost!
Do you have verses in the Bible that trouble you?
2 Corinthians 13:14 is one of those verses for me. In the New International Version it says, “May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.” We see a picture of the Trinity in this verse: God the Father, Jesus and Precious Holy Spirit.
I love the fact that in most Christian homes children know about God’s love.
His love is powerful. And they also know about the transforming Gift of the Grace that was given to us by Jesus through the finished work of the cross. But, the thing that troubles me is that so few have experienced the fellowship or friendship of the Holy Spirit. That’s why I wrote Holy Spirit My Invisible Friend.
I am Pat Holland and there's something very important that I want to tell you about myself. "I have an invisible friend!" Maybe you think I'm too old to have an invisible friend, but I said invisible not imaginary. And I've written two books about Him. (Quoted from "Holy Spirit, My Invisible Friend.")
I wrote the book "Precious Holy Spirit" for adults and now "Holy Spirit, My Invisible Friend" for children. I wrote this book to help children discover that even though they cannot see Holy Spirit, He is very real. And, He wants to be their friend. Like other friends, He helps us, encourages us and talks to us.
I discovered that Holy Spirit wanted to be my friend when I was a child.
He is very real to me and I want to help children experience and know Him personally. He's not weird or spooky like His name might sound to a child. This is a book of textured photographs of boats, birds, waves, kites and kids that help me introduce them to Precious Holy Spirit.
This book uses the wind to illustrate some of the distinct characteristics of Holy Spirit. I share my personal story of receiving Holy Spirit as a child and the story from Acts 19 in this short easy to read book on the Holy Spirit. Written especially for children ages 7-12.
