Picturing God’s book birthday & giveaway!


It’s the fruition of a desire from early childhood to write & illustrate my own children’s books–& of the past couple of years of painstaking but joyful work, late nights, problem solving, do-overs, & gifts from others. For example, here the child’s hair is the fringe of a scarf woven by a Wayúu woman from the Alta Guajira region of Colombia.

I was going to ask my editor if we could include a list of the media I used on the copyright page–but it would have taken up too much space! One of these days I’ll make a comprehensive list here.

Celebrate with me! You can buy the book at Beaming Books or Amazon or Target or almost any online book retailer. And if you share this post elsewhere on social media & provide the link in comments, you may win a free copy! On Thursday evening September 26 at 9:00 p.m. Central Daylight Time I’ll throw names in a hat & pick a winner. You must live in the United States to be eligible (sorry to all my international friends!).

Scripture is dizzingly rich in God-metaphors. Let’s revel in them & share them with our children!
