  • Little Shepherd is a story filled with obedience and faith.

    Little Shepherd is about a young boy named Obed, who is entrusted with his first flock of sheep to guard. Obed is proud of his new responsibility and takes it very seriously. His family depends on the sheep for food and wool. He is determined to make sure that no sheep are lost on his watch.

    That night angels came and brought news that a Savior has been born. Obed’s father wants to go to Bethlehem and see the new savior, but Obed has reservations about it. Unprotected, the sheep might get lost or eaten by the nearby wolves. However, Obed’s father is undeterred, believing that the sheep will not be harmed on such a special night. Though Obed doubts his father’s wisdom, he soon realizes that his father was correct. On the night the Lord was born, nothing would be harmed. It was truly a special moment of faith.

    Little Shepherd is a great Christmas story for children between the ages of 4-8 that inspires faith and trust in something that cannot be seen, but can be felt in the heart and in the soul. This book would make a great addition to any Christmas collection as well as in any religious setting.
