In a few short days, my first children’s book, God’s Very Good Idea, will be released to the world. I can’t fully express my excitement about the potential for this book to serve parents and little hearts and minds. I am praying that the Lord would use it to start conversations in the home and in children’s ministry classrooms that will point us to a good God who creates beautifully and diversely.
So, why bother with the topic of diversity for kids?
Simply put, because this is a topic found in God’s Word. The word “diversity” has been greatly politicized – actually all things about race and ethnicity so often fall into the wrong category of political division. But when I read God’s word, I see a God who created people from every tribe, tongue, and nation for His glory and the benefit of the Church.
This short video will give you a small glimpse into why I decided to write about diversity for kids. My prayer is that you will be inspired and encouraged to share with your kids and those around you about the true story of God’s delightfully different family.
And the book is about so much more than diversity, but you’ll have to check it out to see for yourself. You can grab a copy of God’s Very Good Idea from:
