Gary Smalley & Kari Smalley Gibson share the charming story of Mooki, a beaver orphan who's heartbroken by teasing until he learns children make fun of others because they have an "owie" in their own hearts. After you've read Mooki's Secret, ask your child: * How did Mooki feel when his secret was discovered? * What did Mooki do when he was teased about his teeth? * Did you ever feel had after someone teased you? * How did Suzzi's family encourage Mooki ? * What good things did Mooki learn about himself? * What good things have you learned about yourself? Point out to your child that the Chomper family helped Mooki see that his teeth were good and special. Their warm acceptance and encouragement helped Mooki get past the painful stage of feeling strange, different, and ashamed. We can encourage our children in similar ways. It is so important for you to help your child understand that we all experience painful things. Instead of dwelling on the pain, we can teach our children to trust God. Because of God's unfailing love and grace for His children, He ultimately transforms each painful experience into something that benefits us. As Christians we can have the security of knowing that God will never renege on his promise to make all things work together for good. He never leaves or forsakes us, but promises to give us grace sufficient to meet each trial. Even a young child can understand that God will always be there for us. Explain that there is never a time limit to God's perfect plan for us. He may bring joy in a day, or it may take several years. We may never fully understand why we experience some painful events, but we can completely trust God to bring us joy through it all. One of the most special gifts a parent can give a child is the example of calm trust in our loving and faithful God. You may also wish to explore these Scriptures with your child: Romans 8:28; Isaiah 61:3; 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18; James 1:2; and Hebrews 12:9-11. You can read more about finding joy through pain in thebook Joy That Lasts. Picture descriptions present.
