Hey Warrior Kids!
PUT ON YOUR ARMOR!
Are you ready? Are you sure you're ready? . . .
With those little but powerful words, our Warrior Kids embark on the experience of a lifetime: learning about the armor God has given us all to wear to battle every day. No Christian, child nor adult, need live in bondage. Understanding what God has already provided for us is key to living in victory.
This engaging text helps children envision the armor as they put it on every day, preparing them for the challenges the world will throw at them.
Based on the Armor of God, Ephesians 6:13-18.
You Are In God's Army!
I really appreciate the illustrations being completely child friendly. When dealing with spiritual armor, illustrations can sometimes be scary, but in this case the illustrations show the child that God has clothed him so he can face his own life undefeated.
What I Like: My favorite aspect of the book is how it is written. Everything is written and worded exactly how I speak to my children- with excitement, joy, and in normal everyday language. Here is a small excerpt:
I have some fantastic, unbelievable, totally awesome, over-the-top, out-of-this-world news for you!
What's the news already?
Okay, here it is.
Are you ready?
Are you sure you're ready?
The news is......."
I'll let you wonder what the news is.
Since this is how I talk to my children, reading this book was a lot of fun. I saw this book as a script to read as I shared a very import spiritual lesson with my children in a way that captured their attention.
I also loved the child's level plan of salvation at the end of the book. It is written in terms that children can understand and relate to.
What I Dislike: I liked everything about this book.

I can't tell you how excited I am to give my kids your wonderful book. The message is exactly what I am always trying to get across. I plan on asking my kids every day if they have on their armor. Thanks for writing this amazing book! Love it!
I love Hey Warrior Kids! Put On Your Armor! Thank you for it.

The last chapter of the book of Ephesians makes reference to the spiritual conflict that is levied against believers. Although Paul's admonition is available for all to read, it is all too often played down or ignored by the Christian community. The battle described is not with flesh and blood, but is executed by spiritual beings whose commission involves stealing, killing, and destroying the inhabitants of Planet Earth. Unfortunately, not all Christian adults have been sufficiently taught the ramification of dealing with their spiritual enemies. As a result, our youth have even less exposure to the truth concerning spiritual warfare and rarely, if ever, experience the reality of learning that they can utilize Biblical protection against an invisible enemy dedicated to their destruction. The result of this lack of knowledge can have long-term, devastating results.
Hey Warrior Kids! Put On Your Armor! addresses putting on the Armor of God in a format that will introduce Christian kids to the subject on a level and in a manner that is easy to digest while upholding the truth of Scripture.
Mr. Areon Potter is an outstanding teacher and Christian counselor. His books, From Darkness To Light and Psalm 91 The Dweller are excellent resources for learning more about spiritual warfare. Visit Adonai Resources for more information.
A Must Read!

Parents are always concerned about how they can protect their children from the many dangers of today's society. In her book, Hey Warrior Kids! Mrs. Virginia Finnie offers a wonderfully written and educational story about how children can defend themselves from evil by using the armor God has provided for them. What better way to protect our children from evil by educating them on how to be a soldier for God and defend themselves against harm?
Educational and Fun

Author Virginia Finnie takes an important Christian message in her story Hey Warrior Kids! Put on Your Armor! and makes it both understandable and fun for children! Finnie explains how easy it is for children to be protected by God by putting on their armor each day. One of my favorite armor parts is the Belt of Truth. How great it would be for young people to go out each day better prepared for the world they face. If children learn early on that God is there to protect them in all they do, as they get older and peer pressure mounts, they can hopefully find the courage through their faith to stand up for what is right...even when no one is looking.
