What a great story! Beautifully written and wonderful images. The diversity of characters means my kid "saw himself" represented in one of the characters. My kids loved this story.

In the Beginning... God

A Story of Creation and Responsibility

Let there be Light!

The first four words God spoke to set in motion the beginning of His wonderful creation. From the tiniest flower to faraway planets, children and adults alike have marveled at the breathtaking beauty and intricacies of God’s divine workmanship.

God saw the darkness that stretched far and wide,
beyond what your eyes could see.

Let there be light!” God said with a shout.
“Make it shine as bright as can be!”

With playfull rhymes and brilliant illustrations, In the Beginning… God celebrates each day of creation while reminding all God’s children of their role in His magnificent one of a kind design.

Then at last, it was complete,
and time for God to rest.

“Before I do,” God said with a smile,
“I have this one request:”

In the Image of God

A Story of Identity and Value

What makes you…YOU?

Children from a young age wonder what makes them special. They wonder how they can find their unique place in a big world. Of all God’s creation, we are His masterpiece. God’s amazing qualities are planted deep inside us, just waiting to spring to life.

“For you were made in the image of God.
In the image of God, you were made.”

Filled with rhymes of affirmation and charming illustrations, In the Image of God is a beautiful reminder that our identity is found in Him. Children will be inspired to see themselves just as God made them, full of creativity, wisdom, power and love.

“You are made to soar high. The sky is the limit.
No challenge or quest is too big with you in it.”

Living Water

If we find ourselves in a continuous cycle of maintaining our everyday existence, we need to ask ourselves if there’s something more meaningful we can set our sights on.

No Roon at the Inn

It’s easy to get so caught up with the busyness of the season that we forget about who, the season is meant to honour. Like the innkeeper, we relegate Jesus to a small corner and get on with the busyness of our activities.

Action - The Evidence of Faith

To say we have a belief or faith in something is great, but without action, it won’t go very far.
