We all feel sad and lonely at times, it is a part of life that is often not discussed with our children. What makes the difference is how we handle it. THIS TOO SHALL PASS is a child’s narrative as she encounters sadness and develops her coping skills. It starts off with a young biracial girl who has feelings of melancholy and isolation. She decides to walk outside and take a deep breath, helping her to calm her emotions and appreciate her blessings. Now she recognizes that her “tummy is full” and her “movements are quick”, and is full of gratitude and “surrounded by all of God’s glory.” The purpose of this book is to help children identify that although life can be challenging at times, we have choices on how to handle each and every situation we face. THIS TOO SHALL PASS is on the forefront of improving the mental health of the next generation.
