Book Synopsis

Kids have big feelings, but none of their feelings are too big for God. In this picture book from licensed counselor Michelle Nietert and Tama Fortner, young readers will explore what it means to feel scared and discover how to manage their emotions in a healthy way.

Scared is a feeling that can be hard to face, but if we listen to it, we can learn things about ourselves. In God, I Feel Scared, children will discover that it's okay to be scared and that God is with us in all things, including fear. With simple, accessible text, scared becomes an emotion that kids don't need to avoid and instead something they can use to better understand themselves and grow closer to God. The bright, emotive art by Nomar Perez will draw kids in, and a note in the back provides tips and techniques parents and caregivers can use to help young children process their feelings in a beneficial way.

God, I Feel Scared teaches kids ages 4 to 8 how to:

  • Identify the feeling of fear and recognize things that can make them feel scared
  • See signs of fear in others
  • Develop techniques to manage fear
  • Embrace fear and new experiences without letting it overwhelm them
  • Talk to God about their feelings

God, I Feel Scared is perfect for:

  • Helping young kids develop positive ways to manage and name their feelings
  • Children dealing with changing emotions, new experiences, or anxiety
  • Family read-aloud time
  • Supporting good communication and mental health habits at an early age

Nietert and Fortner combine their talents to help kids process their fears. The book is basic, but oh, so practical. God, I Feel Scared equips kids to name their fears and to manage them with God's help. I love the calm down skills in the back.

Amazing book for kids that may struggle with anxiety

5 out of 5 stars
Thumbs up graphic, would recommend
LibsMum - 2 months ago
This book is an excellent. I read the book with my 8 year old daughter who has generalized anxiety. It gave her more of an understanding and feeling that it’s okay to be scared and that everyone gets scared sometimes. It was helpful that it gave so many different ways that being fearful can come out and can help young readers have empathy and recognize fear in others. It also gives ways of coping and managing anxiety that is age appropriate. It was great seeing how differently the wording is so that kids can understand. So often as adults, we understand anxiety but it’s harder for us to put it into words at the kid level. This book does just that while encouraging their hearts with God’s promises. So often in today’s world- there is an emphasis on teen and adult mental health and not so much on younger children, this book is just what’s needed to address the younger children. We read it twice the first day and she woke me up the following day by asking to read it with me again which is also huge because she could have easily read it by herself but it also proves that it fosters connection with trusted adults.
