Bestselling Author Sheila Walsh to Host Webcast

Written by SGN Scoops on February 13, 2013 – 7:45 pm -

Seattle: It’s never too early to introduce your kids to a regular devotional routine or ways in which they can let their light shine in sheilatheir daily lives. The Shine Your Light Devotional (Tommy Nelson/February 19, 2013/ISBN 978-1-4003-2069-1/$16.99) by renowned Bible teacher  Sheila Walsh allows parents to do just that. On February 26 at 8 PM EST/5 PM, Walsh will be hosting a webcast to connect with moms and highlight this new release.

 Young girls need to know that they can be bright, shining lights for God—and this new devotional will teach them to do so by thanking God, learning His Word, telling others about Him, and showing His love to everyone they meet.

More than 50 devotions help girls see that God wants us to learn about Him and to put His Word in action. Memory verses, prayers, “Shine Your Light” activities that focus on serving God each day, and devotional thoughts explore how little girls can be more like Jesus. With lots of sparkles and even more great biblical applications and encouragement, the Shine Your Light Devotional is sure to be a favorite part of a little girl’s day.

“I wish I had understood when I was a young girl struggling with shame and self-doubt that God loved me just the way I was – that’s what I want for the girls in our life,” explains Walsh. “Let them grow up strong in the knowledge that they are Daughters of the King.”

The Shine Your Light Devotional incorporates artwork from Walsh’s latest series of God’s Little Angel™ storybooks. These stories follow on the heels of Walsh’s wildly successful God’s Little Princess series, which has won the National Retailer’s Choice Award twice and is the most popular Christian brand for young girls in the US.

During the February 26 interactive webcast, the audience can submit questions for Walsh to answer, join a live chat with other parents, and be eligible to win a variety of prizes, including copies of Shine Your Light.  Participants can join the webcast via the author’s Facebook page or for those who do not have a Facebook account, the Litfuse Publicity Group website.
