“This book has it all — rhyme for early literacy development, captivating photographs that help the young child to relate truth to life, clear statements of biblical truth, and clear and precise helps for parents to interact and teach children. Developmentally appropriate books that convey truth to a young audience while at the same time engage and involve parents are difficult to find.
As a university professor of both Early Childhood and Children’s literature, My Whole Self Before YOU will become part of my personal library.”
Dr. Uecker views placing God’s Word at the center of the curriculum as essential to the Christian school movement. The mission of the Lowrie Center for Christian School Education is to facilitate international networking, research, innovation, and the advancement of enduring ideas foundational to excellence in Christ-centered schooling around the world.

“Thank you for writing My Whole Self Before YOU. It’s marvelous for many reasons! You have perfectly interpreted the Lord’s Prayer with accurate and developmentally appropriate concepts.
The rhyming adds to the prayer rather than taking away from the message.
The pictures add greatly to the book. They are vibrant and relevant to the text and will enhance children’s comprehension, retention, application, and joy. Many cultures and both genders are well represented.
The “Side by Side Comparison to the Lord’s Prayer” will help people quickly decide the prayer is good for their children to learn.
The Learning Guide is ideal. There’s freedom — the book is great without it. With it, more in depth understanding will result.
Including “The Prayer Life of Jesus” is a wonderful way to keep the focus on Jesus and allows for a deep connection to be made between children and Jesus as they discover He models everything for them.
I believe it will sell very well!”
