Diane Stortz. I Am: 40 Reasons to Trust God.  Nashville, TN: Thomas Nelson Publishing Company, February 2nd 2016.  224 pp.

Purchase: Amazon

There are forty chapters in the book with each covering a different title.  The subtitle for the book is “40 Reasons to Trust God” and of course God’s title reveal His character and attributes which are reasons why we can trust God.  I enjoyed reading this book to my children and also my children enjoyed it when I read it to them.  They would often ask me to keep on reading to the next chapter as part of our nightly reading routine before they go to sleep.
