Firebird is a children's book that parallels the life of Samantha Crawford, a storybook artist in the inspiring new film Unconditional who has lost sight of God's love.
Firebird is a bright orange baby oriole who just loves the sunshine, but whenever a storm blows in, he frets and asks Mama why God allows the rain to take the sun away. Only when Firebird is old enough, does he venture up through the thunder and lightning to see what's on the other side. With a rough flight that makes him want to give up, Firebird rises above the storm to discover the sun shining where it has always been---and learns that God never lets the storm take the sun away. With this truth, Firebird basks in the sunshine, but also learns to rejoice in the rain.
