Poor Griffin. Every night when he turns out the lights, his room turns as black as a starless sky. He tries to be brave, but his toes curl up and his hands grow cold and his heart beats fast and his legs turn to jelly.
Can someone take away the shakes and the shivers and the quakes and the quivers? Is there anybody big enough to keep him safe?
Tenderly written to help calm childrens fears, this delightfully illustrated tale reassures children that they are not alone in feeling afraid of the dark and offers them this comforting promise: "Gods perfect love takes away fear" (1 John 4:18).
LIZ CURTIS HIGGS is the author of the best-selling Parable series, awarded the Gold Medallion for childrens literature: The Pumpkin Patch Parable, The Parable of the Lily, The Sunflower Parable, and The Pine Tree Parable.

Maybe of the dark? Griffin did. Yes, the dark is a very scary place for Griffin. The only way to scare away his fears is to put on every light he can find; Flick! Snap! Click!
When the lights went out Griffin could only hide and shiver until he was sure his mother would hear his bones rattling all the way downstairs. What a wise mother God had given Griffin for she reminds Griffin that there is Someone very big right there in Griffin's room. "God?!" says Griffin. "Can God fit in my bedroom?" What a wonderful reminder to all of us that God is always present, always with us, and it is He who will keep us safe and grant peace.
