"The Runaway Egg" Shares the Easter Message with Children
Feb. 26, 2016
A new children’s book from Liberty Mountain Publishing invites readers to experience the Gospel message of God’s love in a simple and beautiful way.
Out just in time for Easter, “The Runaway Egg” by Nancy Nickel follows the adventures of a special egg that escapes from an Easter egg hunt and travels down a river and across town, meeting people and animals along the way. Through unpredictable circumstances, the egg begins an incredible journey and, eventually, reveals a surprise hidden deep inside it.
This story shows children that while things do not always go as planned, God is always in control.
“Everything is all about God, and whether I’m 2 or 80 I need to choose to live each day trusting in my God and resting in his ways,” Nickel said. “We really don’t need to be scholars to understand deep truths of the Bible … it’s God’s love story. It’s all about the Creator who didn’t give up on His creation — you and me.”
