Title correctly describes the theme of the book!

I really enjoyed this children's book. It kept you in suspense as to what would happen next. It is a very relevant book corresponding with events that are happening in the world today. The little girl remembered her teachi gs about Jesus which helped her through the rough times. A good reminder for all to always look to God for help!

Great story! Claudia-Rose remembered her mother's godly teaching, and refused to walk in fear. She had scripture buried in her heart to recall when she needed it. This story demonstrates the practicality and power of scripture, on a level that a child can understand.
I do not quite understand the invaders, other than symbolically. Do not let fear invade your life.
Overall, I enjoyed this story. And, the illustrations were magnificent!

I thought it was an excellent children’s book. The illustrations were wonderful. The little girl was amazing how she remembered her mother’s teaching her about trusting God. The way she thought things out about what was happening. Then meeting up with her little sister who spoke quietly to her how to help the situation.

I am so pleased we are not affected by events like this

Excellent Storyline - Very Suspenseful!!

When Claudia-Rose was talking about the intruders, it got me thinking about the Covid-19 threat that we dealt with for a few years. Once we decided to not be afraid and lie down (sort of), it went away. I'm still wondering what the intruders were all about, but the ideal of overcoming fear was the best thing I needed to hear during my difficult circumstances that I'm facing at this time. Thank you!

I thought it was an excellent children's book. Although content wasn’t applicable where we live, the illustrations were wonderful. The little girl was amazing how she remembered what her mother taught her about trusting God. It was not easy for her but she persisted and used her head to think about what was happening. Then. Eating her little sister who spoke quietly to her about how to help the situation. Excellent.

Excellent Book for Children

I highly recommend Overcomers! The story of nine year old Claudia-Rose was captivating. I was on the edge of my seat wondering what she would do when the man raised a weapon to her. As the story unfolds and she makes one decision after the other to flee from the man, the most important decision she made was to pray and ask Jesus to shield her.
Evil is rampant in today’s world. An invasion of the town we live in is a great possibility. I think every child who reads this story will remember to call on Jesus anytime they are approached with someone, or something, that would harm them.
I loved what Joy Ohagwu wrote to the kids at the end of this book. She encouraged the kids reading this to have faith in Jesus and not fear. Joy also provides the scriptures for them to memorize.

This book will inspire many parents n children. Seeing the faith in a small child gives hope to so many. We need to instill faith in their hearts to pray and lean on God when we are afraid. He is always there for us. I loved this book.

Great book

This book is a great example of remembering what was taught to do when afraid or in difficult situations. That is to pray. This is written as children's book but there are things adults could use also.

Children Pilgrim

This is a fantastic book for children. It's also quite a good read for young adult. It's realy ageless when you think of our current spiritual state of nations.
It's another classic like - The Pilgrim's Progress. Highly recommended.

Wonderful book!

Throughout the story, Claudia-Rose learns to cast out her fear and place her trust in God. She learns that he will never abandon her and that God has created a lot of difficult situations but for those who place their trust in him they will overcome.

Overcomers is an excellent book for young children. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it to my young grandchildren. I especially enjoyed at the back of the book the Hebrews II chapter. It’s so convenient to be able to read one of the verses and then refer to a section in the story where that verse is applicable. Thus Overcomers is not only a story for young children but also a lesson book.
