One day she tries out for the school musical and tells all her friends she will definitely get the lead role. But instead of getting a part, her drama teacher asks her to help with the lighting. Zoe wants to hide! Papa finds her in the closet hiding under her blanket and helps her remember that Jesus is with her and will be her protector and helper when she goes back to school. Zoe learns that when Jesus is near, you don’t have to hide. You can face your friends and shine a light on them.

    Parents and caregivers are guided by editor Edward T. Welch in how to talk with their children about hiding and feeling ashamed and how to connect the Bible to their children’s struggles.

Children will learn to turn to Jesus and depend on him to cover them with his love and give them the strength to face others.
