This second title in the StrongHeart Stories series, The Heart Who Wanted to Sing is a high-quality, giftable hardcover picture book that shows kids how to fight back with the power of worship when their spiritual enemy sings a song of lies.

“The heart knew what it knew, and it had to choose. Which song was right? Which one was true?”

When the heart hears the sneaky words of a sickly song, how can it fight back? In this beautiful rhyming picture book for kids ages 4 to 8, children experience how the gift of worship can give them strength for any challenge.

Like every book in the StrongHeart Stories series, The Heart Who Wanted to Sing helps children see the biblical gifts—Scripture, worship, rest, prayer, confession, and community—that God has given them to engage in spiritual battles. The Heart Who Wanted to Sing teaches kids how to trust the voice of God and sing out with the power of His praise. Because whether we are angry, lonely, or afraid, worshipping God in song can bring us closer to Him and make our hearts strong.
