Where is God? Join a little boy as he searches for God's presence in a powerful storm, a friend's help, his sister's kindness, and his own heart---and rejoice with him when he recognizes that God is everywhere! A delightfully illustrated book for 4- to 8-year-olds. Includes an introduction by Lee Strobel. 36 pages, hardcover
A small child discovers Gods presence in the world around him.
A boys simple question sparks a search for God. Prompted by his grandfather, he discovers Gods presence everywhere: in a powerful storm, in a friends help, and in his sisters kindness. Then his grandfather shares another truth: God also can be found in our hearts, if we invite him in.
Filled with wonder, Thats Where God Is! teaches children ages 4 to 8 that God is always with them. Moving beyond simply telling about God, it gently guides childrens spiritual growth, showing them how to recognize Gods presence for themselves. With an introduction by Lee Strobel, its ideal for parents, grandparents, and teachers who want to deepen a young childs walk with God.
Authors Dan and Alison Morrow (Worlds Collide, Violette Between as Alison Strobel) live in Colorado, where they and their two daughters love exploring around their home. In between their adventures, Alison writes womens fiction and authors a blog, while Dan works on numerous projects for children and adults.
Ill be honest: I get tears in my eyes when I read this tender little book about God. Oh, sure, its partly because this is such a touching story: A grandpa sends a child out on a mission to discover where God is. The boy not only finds evidence of God in everyday life, but he also takes the further step of inviting Him into his heart so God can be with him forever. When I see the innocence of a child encounter the loving presence of our Creatorwell, I cant help but get a little teary.
But thats not the only reason I get emotional. You see, when my daughter was a toddler, she loved to climb into a chair and snuggle as my wife, Leslie, or I would read her a story. But I dont recall many books about God. At the time, Leslie was agnostic, and I was an atheist.
Nevertheless, Gods love ended up touching our lives, and both Leslie and I became followers of Jesus. By His grace, our daughter Alison and her brother, Kyle, found faith too and have become strong and vibrant Christians. In fact, guess what Alison has done now? She and her husband, Dan, have created this very book! So today, Leslie and I can pull our little granddaughters onto our laps and read them this story of finding God in the nooks and crannies of daily lifeand explain how they, too, can find eternal life through Him.
I know youll love to read this book to your own children and grandchildren. And when you close the cover, dont let that be the last word. As the grandpa in the story says, Keep your eyes open. Im sure youll find God all over the place. Together, may you and the children in your life joyfully embark on the everyday adventure of discovering Gods presence throughout His creation. - Lee Strobel
In the children's picture book That's Where God Is! by Dan and Ali Morrow, a young boy benefits from the guidance of his wise grandfather. During a regular weekend visit to his grandfather's house, the youngster asks where God is. Instead of answering the boy, the old man challenges his grandson to look carefully during the next week to see if he can discover "where God is." Sure enough, throughout the week the boy discovers that God is found in the company of good friends, in acts of kindness, in deeds of honesty, and in the beauty of nature.
Returning to Grandfather's house the following weekend, the boy tells of all the places he discovered where God resides. Grandfather says that God also needs to reside in the hearts of all people, but He cannot enter there unless invited. The little boy then asks God to forgive him of his sins and to live in his heart forever.
During the episodes in which the boy finds where God is dwelling, Bible verses are inserted on the pages as scriptural verification of what is being taught. At the end of the book there is a page that presents Psalm 139:1-10, which tells of God's closeness to his creations. Lee Strobel adds a closing message for parents on the book's final page.
The book's watercolor artwork is done in dark hues of purple, red, gold, and brown, making it dramatic and intense, but the kind and loving facial expressions of the grandfather and other characters in the story make the scenes inviting and kid friendly.
