His Mighty Warrior~ A Treasure Map from Your King by Sheri Rose Shepherd is an incredible book to share with a young man in your home or give as a really great gift to an elementary aged guy.
I was delighted to be able to review this book, because I have several other books by this author which take on the format of “love letters” from God written to His Princess Bride, His Princess Warrior, and His Princess.
Just as with the other books I own by the same author, this book is a padded hardcover, with thick pages that are beautifully illustrated. Levi particularly likes the antique-looking treasure map which takes up two pages in the beginning of the book.
Taking on a treasure-hunting, island, ship/boat, pirate adventurer theme, there are 50 letters addressed to: My Warrior, My Son, My Chosen Warrior, My Boy, My Brave Warrior, or My Mighty Warrior, about topics such as character, words, family, protection, anger, mother’s love, fear, friends, caring for yourself, salvation, and many others. After a short letter signed by God in a way appropriate for the topic of discussion, there is a Bible verse, then on the opposing page, a prayer.
I love that the letters are short and to the point, and completely applicable to every young man’s growth and development. I also love that the book is colorful and the illustrations full of adventure and exploration.
Levi will be enjoying this book for years to come, and I will be giving some as gifts to special young men as well.
