The Role of A Guardian Angel for Children

In this troubled world we need all the help we can get and it is freely given by God.  When I was growing up, I wish I had been told about a guardian angel assigned to watch over me.  In Sunday school I learned about Jesus, but didn't understand that he was a real living Presence in my life.  I thought he was watching over me long distance from the right hand of the Father.

In the Bible, Jesus speaks about children and the role of a Guardian Angel.

"Take heed that ye despise not one of those little ones, for I say unto you, that in heaven their angels behold the face of my Father which is in heaven."                               --Matthew 18:10

Here's a  list of angel books John Ronner recommended for children in his book The Angel Calendar Book.

The Red Shoes by Hans Christian Andersen
The Angel Who Forgot by Elsa Bartone (Simon & Schuster)
The Alabama Angels by Mary Barwick (Ballantine Books, 1993)
Angels Get No Respect by Cecile Bauer (Magnificat Press)
The Christmas Angel by Abbie Farwell Brown.
The Tiny Angel by Elizabeth Koda-Calan (Workman Publishing, NY)
Ladder of the Angels. Stories from the Bible by Madeleine L'Engle (Harper and Row, 1979)
Marcelia's Guardian Angel by Evaline Ness
Angel of God by Piera Paltron (St. Paul Books, Massachusetts)

Enjoy your day with the Angels and celebrate your life.

Love and joyful blessings,
