What makes you strong? Discover how with God's help you can become strong on the inside and the outside.

About this Book:

Caleb loves to pretend he is a superhero, zooming around the house in his cape, jumping from one piece of furniture to the next, lifting heavy objects and showing his muscles with his cousin David. When Caleb's mother tells the boys that they can be even stronger than they are now, they want to learn the secret to superhero success.

Caleb's mother tells the boys that while their outside strength is visible to everyone, it is their "inside" strength that truly makes them strong. Explaining that inner strength comes from things like sharing and forgiving, at first the boys are skeptical of her words. These are hard and sometimes scary things to do-how can they gain the strength for that? They soon learn that asking God's help will give them what they need to be strong on the inside. "When we ask God for help, he gives us his special powers-his grace."

Later, Courageous Caleb and Daring David use both their outer and inner strength on the soccer field, proving that they can be "true superheroes."

With comic-inspired illustrations that will appeal to boys ages 4 – 7, Mommy, Am I Strong? teaches boys to recognize both inner and outer strength and develop virtues necessary to become strong men of faith.

Reviews
Shirley Brosius says...
In this beautifully illustrated book an insightful mother teaches her son Caleb and his friend David that true strength consists of doing the right thing. “Strength is more than big muscles, you see. Strength on the inside makes you the strongest you can be.” While the boys pretend to be superheroes—picking up heavy objects, jumping from chair to chair—Caleb’s Mommy explains they can develop inner strength by doing the right thing, even when it’s hard. They can show sportsmanship and forgive those who offend by relying on God to help them be strong on the inside. Author Michelle Lazurek developed the idea for this book after watching her son help a friend pick up spilled crayons. In a world where sports figures get much attention, this book helps young boys learn how to develop true inner strength rather than just build muscles. This book will be especially valuable for boys with disabilities since the character of David sports an artificial running leg. “Mommy, Am I Strong?” and its companion book for girls--“Daddy, Am I Beautiful?”--will go a long way to help children develop strength of character and make good choices in a world that emphasizes physical appearance and prowess. These are priceless books to give as gifts for they can mold a child’s character at a critical time of life.
