If you’re looking for a new children’s book that helps young people imagine all that God is and may be, then pick up a copy of What Is God? by Olivia Bryan Updegrove. Olivia was kind enough to show me an advance copy at Faith Forward 2015, and I enjoyed reading the whole book recently. It tells of a conversation between a young boy and an old man.
“God is SO big!” the boy jumped suddenly.
“God’s part of the stars, the oceans, and trees! God is in heaven, but God moves around.
In all good things God can be found.
God was there when all things began,
and continues with us ‘til good wins in the end. God lets us choose what is right and is wrong,
but God is beside us as we go along.”
