Have your children been struggling with fear?

April 10, 2020

Have your children been struggling with fear in the midst of everything going on in the world?

I would love to help you encourage them. That’s why I’m reading from my children’s book, It Will Be Okay: Trusting God Through Fear and Change. I think it’s the perfect message for right now.

This book helps kids to better process their fears and learn to trust God. And it will help them discover that in the end, it really will be okay because we have a God who is good and kind and always with us.

I hope you’ll watch this video together and that your heart will be encouraged too! ️And don’t miss a special resource I’ve put together just for you below.

(If you’re viewing this post in an e-mail, click here to watch the video.)

There are so many uncertainties during this COVID-19 season, and that’s why I’ve partnered with my friend, Lisa Robertson, to write out some scriptural prayers for parents to pray for themselves. I also have a list I wrote of scriptural prayers to declare over sons and another over daughters.

Click here to receive this resource today. Print these prayers off and put them wherever you have a few minutes of quiet each morning.

And friend, let me whisper one more truth to you… you’re doing better than you think you are. No time spent in prayer is ever wasted. Our prayers matter. And in the midst of so much uncertainty, prayer is the best way to bring peace into our heart and home.

When life demands too much from you

For the girl going to bed tonight feeling … Weighed down by fear and worst-case scenario thinking. Consumed with anxiety because of situations you don’t know how to fix. Stressed out, maxed out and worn out by all that’s on your plate right now. Hold on to this...

If you’ve been feeling alone in this season …

When the very people you thought you could count on hurt you … When it seems like no one understands you or the struggles you’re facing … When you're surrounded by others but still feel incredibly lonely … It’s tempting to wonder, Jesus, are You here? Do You care? Oh,...

    Lysa! such a sweet sweet story! I’m sharing this now! I’m a k-3 teacher and it brought peace to me! I know it will for little ones!

    I have one son that’s 30. And he has been working from home.
    He’s very blessed that he still has a job. And my husband too. He also goes to work and works at home. God is good. Bless you .

    The Holy Spirit has given me your name to help me fulfill my purpose of writing a book sharing my testimony of overcoming my childhood abuse, drugs, and a failed marriage. I shared my testimony for the first time tonight. I would be happy to share it with you. I hope to speak with you soon. God Bless

    Ms. TerKeurst,
    I am a Catholic vice-principal and I am looking for your permission to record me reading your book, “It Will Be Okay” for the students at my school and post it on our school’s Youtube page.
    Thanks in advance for your time,

      Hi Tania! You’re most welcome to record the reading of Lysa’s children’s books and post them online. She’s so happy they are helping children during these uncertain times. – Amanda, LT Ministry Team

      • Shenny Del Cid

        Hi There! I was wondering the same, for our children’s ministry facebook page. Would it be ok to record myself reading it to our children and post it? I recently purchased this book for my own kids and can’t wait to share it with my church kiddos.

        • Lysa TerKeurst

          Hi Shenny! YES… Lysa loves that her children’s books are being used to comfort and help during these uncertain times. Thanks for asking! You may post a video of yourself reading it online. Stay well! – Amanda, LT Ministry Team

    Hi there,
    I would love to read this amazing story to our kids at church via Facebook but would like to respect copyright laws and receive your permission to do so before I go ahead.

    • Lysa TerKeurst

      Hi Iris! Yes, you’re most welcome to read Lysa’s children’s books online! Lysa loves that her books are being used to help children during these uncertain times. Thanks for reaching out! – Amanda LT Ministry Team

    Thank you so much for sharing this book and the prayer resource! What a great resource to have as we are surrounded by our kids constantly now and so can continually be praying over them in new ways as we interact. Really appreciate that resource!

  7. Sue

    I’ve enjoyed your ministry & it has encouraged & challenged me in many ways. Thank you.
    This is a very personal question & if you’d prefer not to answer I understand.
    I’ve wondered by sharing your story & feelings about your marriage is this okay with Art or does he have to relive what he’s been forgiven for??

    • Lysa TerKeurst

      That’s a great question, Sue. Lysa has shared publicly at her speaking engagements that Art loves that she talks about it publicly because when he walks into a room, he doesn’t have to wonder who knows and who doesn’t… he can simply walk into a room as a redeemed and victorious man of God. I hope that answers your question! Thanks for asking – Amanda, LT Ministry Team

  8. Judy Davis

    Thank you for sharing this and the prayer resources!
    I would also like to request permission to read this wonderful story and another of your fabulous kid’s books, Win or Lose I Love You! on our TreeKids Facebook page. We have a bedtime story time every Tuesday evening as a connect point for our younger kids during this time when our live services are “on pause”.
    Thank you for your consideration – and for all the many ways you minister to so many!
