I Couldn't Love You More
by Matt Hammitt and Jason Ingram
About the book:
In the same manner as touching picture books like bestsellers Let Me Hold You Longer and Love You Forever, I Couldn't Love You More tells a sweet, loving, yet powerful message: I couldn’t love you more, but there is someone who does. Through the unique relationship of adorable animals, the book shares that Christ is always with you and he loves you more than you can imagine. This engaging picture book combines lovable and irresistible images with the lyrics from the song (co-written by Jason Ingram and Matt Hammitt). Matt is lead vocalist for Sanctus Real, a Grammy-nominated Christian rock band. The song is on Hammitt’s latest album, Every Fallen Tear. When Matt and his wife, Sarah, were halfway through her pregnancy, they discovered their son would be born with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS), a rare congenital defect. Matt and Sarah’s son, Bowen, was born on 9/9/10 and received a huge following through the Hammitt’s blog (bowensheart.com), K-LOVE, and ABC News. A portion of the proceeds from the book goes to the foundation the Hammitts’ have started to help parents with children who have this heart condition.
Jesus has so much love for us and to know that is an amazing feeling. This is more than just a book, it is a story of His love. It is important for my son to know just how much he is loved. I tell him all the time. He tells me all the time. He needs to hear it and he needs to feel it. We are all so busy that sometimes we get into a routine of things and it can feel just like it, a routine. Love is not routine. I make sure to love on my baby boy every chance I get, just because. Just because I love him. He knows that the only love greater than mine is the love of Jesus.
We really enjoyed this book and will continue reading it nightly. I think this is a great book to use as a tool to help establish your childs faith. I hope all children know of His love. I hope they all are able to feel His touch through anothers embrace.
I must also add that the illustrations in this book are absolutely stunning. The artist Polona Lovsin is an amazing artist. We loved all of the pictures, cover to cover, just beautiful!
