Creative God, Colorful Us featured on Focus on the Family

Trillia Newbell and Dr. Danny Huerta discuss the value of our celebrating racial and cultural diversity as an expression of God’s calling upon us to share His message of love and reconciliation through Christ to people of every nation, tribe, and language, and offer parents practical guidance for celebrating as a family.

The Art of “Creative God, Colorful Us”

The Art of “Creative God, Colorful Us”

A children’s illustrated book is made beautiful by the illustrations! Kids come for the pictures stay for the words. I am grateful for Chase Willliamson and her work in Creative God, Colorful Us. Over the summer, Chase taught my daughter private art lessons. When it came time to find an illustrator, I knew I wanted to reach out to her. But she isn’t an illustrator! The Creative Director at Moody Publishers got creative and allowed me to ask her to paint the pictures inside Creative God, Colorful Us. I still don’t understand how he did it, but I am forever grateful because I knew that Chase would do an incredible job!

She did! It’s beautiful, and I’m so glad you get to meet her today.

Enjoy this interview with the young and talented Chase Williamson.

Have a look at some of the paintings and how they came to life:

God could have made us all exactly the same, but He didn’t. And our differences are good!

As His children, those called by God to belong to His family, we can actually use our differences to help each other. Here’s some more great news: There are no rules about how we look or sound to be in His family. We have a delightfully different family on purpose.

Every person is made by God, in His image, and therefore is equal in value and worth.

 Kids, somehow, already know this to be true.

This short, colorful book (written with grade-schoolers in mind) will share the truth of God’s Word with them. The truth about how we were made with differences, how we sinned, how God rescued us, and how—if we understand that God’s diverse creation will be together in Heaven—it should motivate us to love one another on earth!

Exciting Announcement: New Kids’ Book!

Exciting Announcement: New Kids’ Book!

I am thrilled to share that my newest kids’ book, Creative God, Colorful Us, releases in February! This short, colorful book (written with grade-schoolers in mind) will share the truth about how we were made, our differences, our sin problem, God’s rescue, and how we should be motivated to love one another on earth.
I’ve received so many questions from moms of 6—11-year-olds about teaching our kids about race and ethnicity and the gospel. I hope this starts the conversation and gives kids imagination for what can be in their lives and the world.
The cover art is by a young woman named Chase Williamson. She handpainted all of the pictures! It’s beautiful.

Two years ago, the wonderful team at The Good Book Company took a chance on me and my desire to share with little hearts about God’s very good idea. The fruit of this work and partnership has surpassed all my prayers and hopes for what God might do. The video below captures the heart of the book as women of different ethnicities read in English, Spanish, and Korean.
