Dear Little Bunny,
I hope my stories help you to find your own way to discover Jesus’ JOY. Your fears don’t have to be as big as mine to trust them to Him.
Whenever you feel afraid, like you need to call out for HELP! Remember, if you call on Jesus you’ll have all the help you need. His love is holding you, always… Think of His H.E.L.P. like this!
I’m so proud of you Little Bunny! Have you had any frightening times since you started your E Bunny training? If you do, I hope you’ll do what I did. Prayer really is the problem solver!

For the Big Bunnies…
Here is something special you can do to cultivate a child’s confidence and trust in Jesus as they turn to Him in prayer. This can be done at home with your family or in a classroom or group setting:
The activity includes a reproducible download that is easy to follow, including pictures, instructions, a “Bunny Prayer” of humility and trust in Jesus, and the song: “Jesus Takes My Fears Away” (sung to the tune of, Jesus Loves me…). This activity has had profound spiritually healing effects on children and is a wonderful way to provide a special moment for children as part of a larger prayer event focused on Divine Mercy.
The creator of the Grandpa Bunny Letters is Cathy Gilmore, a native of St. Louis, MO and a married mother ofthree. The Grandpa Bunny Letters are inspired by Cathy’s love for JRR Tolkien’s wonderful, Letter’s From Father Christmas. Experience with the Montessori-based children’s Bible study program, Catechesis of the Good Shepherd gives Cathy a unique approach to writing children’s literature. She is the author of the endearing children’s book Little Lamb Finds Christmas and co-author of the book, Easter Bunny’s Amazing Day, in which a new kind of Easter Bunny shows that “Jesus is the JOY of Easter!” Cathy’s passion is to cultivate each reader’s spiritual imagination through stories that touch the heart with the transforming love of Christ.
