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:

Creative God, Colorful Us: Interviews with Kids

Part of my desire to write Creative God, Colorful Us, was to help us teach the next generation. I feature chapters on the gospel, the image of God, sin and its effect on relationships, loving our neighbor, specifically those who do not look this us, and more. And how we can enjoy our beautiful, colorful, diverse family: the church. So that’s what you’ll find in Creative God, Colorful Us.

But there are times, like today, when the children teach us. In this video, listen to the simple yet profound answers these wonderful children give to questions related to the themes and teaching in Creative God, Colorful Us.

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!

An Online Event for such a time as this!

storyI don’t know of a more crucial time in my lifetime to engage in important, gospel-centered conversations with the next generation about race and the gospel than right now. My hope is that my new book, Creative God, Colorful Us, will be a resource to help teach the kids in your life how to really enjoy our differences!

And to further equip you, a few of my friends and I got together to have honest conversations about how to talk to the next generation about race, ethnicity, and the gospel. You’ll hear from those in every stage of parenting sharing key insights and ‘aha’ moments.

The best part is that when you pre-order the book you can also receive an event access pass completely FREE.
