• Every child can understand God's promises and His unstoppable love!


God’s love is unstoppable. And that’s a promise.

Noah’s ark. Joseph’s dreams. Jesus’s miracles. The Bible is rich with stories for our children to hear and enjoy, but when those stories uncover the thread of God’s promises, our children learn much more than individual Bible stories. They discover how God has demonstrated His love for us, from the first promise in the garden to the promise of the new heavens and earth.

A conversational, whimsical, biblically faithful retelling of more than fifty key Bible stories, The Promises of God Storybook Bible lets your child hear favorite stories with new ears, repeatedly assuring them that each word is proof of God’s unstoppable love and unbreakable promises to His people.

The Heart of the Book

What prompted you to write The Promises of God Storybook Bible?

After teaching Sunday school for almost 20 years and editing (truly) millions of published words, I knew it was probably inevitable that content would start forming in my head. So, several years ago I kept catching myself writing Bible stories in my mind. I had also developed a story sequence for a Bible storybook around the theme I’d found the most consistently sticky for the kids I’d taught—the thread that 3 and 4-year-olds could hold onto through the whole Bible with it being tangible enough for them to understand. But if the thought of actually starting to type came to mind, I resisted. I didn’t tell anyone. I had worked in publishing for 12 years at the time and had always asserted I would never publish, so I dismissed the notion and just kept teaching.

Then God brought Job, a little blond haired, blue-eyed boy to my story rug. He was four months from turning 4 when our class year started, and at first I thought he was shy. He was quiet, would initially play independently, and gave short answers during snack time. But that changed, and not because the class was full of games and fun. It changed because of what God did each week as he would take his spot on the story carpet and listen.
