Joey and I just thought we were stressed while working on our masters degrees at Baylor…minus a mortgage, two cars, four bikes, a yard, a dog, a child and mounds of medical bills. Somehow in our “busy” student schedules we managed to write a children’s poem that we hoped we’d someday publish as a book.
Then we forgot about it…until Finn came along.
Finn teaches us so much about God. About His extravagant grace, His creativity, everyday miracles, His mystery and His fatherly love. We’ve likewise seen beautiful glimmers of faith and innocence in our friends’ little ones. A child’s theology–the way they view God–is so much purer; and sometimes Joey and I long for that kind of simplicity.
Our book is called God Loves it When… and it celebrates how God made us in His image. I think some people don’t want to pursue God because they suppose that if they met Him on the street, He wouldn’t like them. But He does like us…because we are His and a piece of Him is in us.
God Loves it When… is reading level 5 and up. The illustrations are so fun…and see if you can spot Finn! It will make a fantastic baby shower, kid’s birthday and/or Christmas gift. Buy several for your family and friends, and please feel free to direct them to my blog! New shortcut: ourinvinciblesummers.com
