Matthew, God, and the Corona Virus

Matthew is a curious little boy whose life has changed dramatically! First, his mom and dad bring three baby sisters home from the hospital, which turns his world upside down. People are coming and going every day, helping the family adjust to the new additions. And just when Matthew gets used to that, suddenly everyone disappears and his family is alone again. But their life is different because they can’t leave the house. As Matthew tries to understand why all this is happening, he learns about the Corona virus and how it affects everyone’s life. Matthew curiously questions why God is not around helping everyone because he knows God can do anything. Matthew’s mom and dad not only help Matthew understand why we have to be extra careful about catching and spreading the virus, they also help him understand how God is with us all in special ways during this difficult time.
