Review of The Kingdom of Thrim with Giveaway

My friend, Janis Cox has written a new children’s book, The Kingdom of Thrim and I am excited to share it with you here! This book is her second as part of her Growing with God Series.

You may have read my previous post, Teaching Children the Bible, if not you can read it here. It is very important to me when choosing books for my children that contain Biblical ideas or concepts that the books don’t leave my kids with the idea that the Bible is in any way, a fairy tale.

Janis’s new book does a wonderful job of sticking to and teaching biblical truth and I appreciate that.

In Janis’s new book The Kingdom of Thrim, she teaches children the wonderful concept of asking God the path you should take and following that path no matter the cost.

Yoj, the main character, quickly came to a life decision and did not seek God in his choice. This decision leads him to a path that may have paid better but did not lead to his happiness. Once Yoj realized that money couldn’t buy happiness, his reality shifted. To find how the story of Yoj ends, you will have to read The Kingdom of Thrim.

Her talents don’t stop at the ability to teach kids the importance of following God’s lead, she is also the illustrator of this beautifully painted book.  The illustrations draw you right into the story and by the end, you are hoping that you, too, could visit or live in The Kingdom of Thrim.

The story doesn’t end there. Janis has included instructions for a sock doll, which looks so fun to make, art and building block ideas, discussion questions, and research ideas.    

This is a well-rounded book that provides a full experience into the topics of following God and the path He has for you.

Janis is a wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend. Her adult career has consisted of stay-at-home-mom, small business owner, public school teacher, painter, and writer. She enjoys trying anything at least once (but maybe not bungee jumping!)

Her writing and painting careers started simultaneously and that meant dividing her time between two loves. In all of her pursuits, she has learned that practice, practice, practice is a good motto to follow.
Her love for Christ has set her feet a-dancing – literally – as she also takes tap dancing lessons.

Janis is keen to tell everyone she can about the love, healing, grace, and mercy of God. Janis has a blog ( where she writes about how reading God’s Word can change you and your life.

Seek Him First! Today's Bible Reading

James 1:17
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of Lights with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow.

It is of utmost importance that you know that Christ died for you. He died for all sinners so that our relationship with Him could be restored.

Because of His sacrifice on the cross we can have peace. Are you seeking more peace today? Peace of the soul can only be given through the redemptive power of Jesus Christ.

I hope that you, too, know the saving grace of an amazing God.
