Publisher's Description

"Masterfully connects Scripture to nature and nature to God."
--Lori Wildenberg, national speaker, parent coach, and author

For a generation whose eyes are constantly trained on screens, encountering nature at all is increasingly difficult, much less seeing what it reveals about God. How can parents help children reengage with God's world that is full of amazement, creativity, and love?

Eryn Lynum is a certified master naturalist, Bible teacher, and mom of four who wants to help families encounter and understand the connection between God and creation. She shares her own story of putting her kids in front of nature, and invites other parents to consider a similar journey.

With practical sections that look at nature through the lens of the Bible and activities to integrate faith and the natural world, Rooted in Wonder helps parents instill within their kids an unshakable faith. Through the art of play, the drive of discovery, and the awe of adventure, children will gain a sense of wonder in their Creator that will last a lifetime.

"With joy and practical know-how, Eryn Lynum helps parents connect the beauty of creation with love for the Creator. Rooted in Wonder is a must-read for helping the next generation to get outdoors and get to know God."
--Matthew Sleeth, MD, executive director of Blessed Earth

This book not only inspires but also gives practical ideas to embrace your child’s natural wonder and teach kids about God through their experiences in nature. You will finish this book encouraged, equipped, adventurous, and ready to form a deeper connection with your kids and God as you delight in his creation.” -- Steph Thurling, executive director of Christian Parenting

We don’t need more wonders in the world—just a greater sense of wonderment! With joy and practical know-how, Eryn Lynum helps parents connect the beauty of creation with love for the Creator. Rooted in Wonder is a must-read for helping the next generation to get outdoors and get to know God. -- Matthew Sleeth, MD, executive director of Blessed Earth and author of Reforesting Faith

Rooted in Wonder makes its case well—opportunities abound to cultivate one’s faith through the mystery, beauty, and an ethical relationship with the natural world. -- Steve Swenson, the Aldo Leopold Foundation

This book is a beautifully written, powerful treatment of the natural world as God’s revelation to His people. The focus of Eryn Lynum’s passionate writing is children and families and helping them get to know how studying nature can guide kids toward the majesty of God’s creation. The author weaves theological insights with practical advice on how to instill a love for the natural word in kids of all ages. The sections of each chapter called Step Outside are filled with activities and questions geared for a joyful educational experience. Lynum makes extensive use of biblical quotations, as well as her own experience as a mother of four and her qualifications as a certified naturalist, to provide a Christ-centered discovery and exploration of the created world of nature. This book will be a true blessing for you and your family. -- Sy Garte, PhD, author of The Works of His Hands

In an often chaotic and confusing world, God’s creation not only provides a respite but also boldly and intricately reflects countless biblical principles that ground us. As parents, we have the privilege and responsibility to pass these timeless truths on to our children. In Rooted in Wonder, Eryn Lyman masterfully explains many biblical principles reflected in God’s creation and by doing so she shows parents how to help their children make these connections as well. I encourage parents to read through this lovely book with an eye toward godly culture building by investing in their children who will then pass these lessons on to their children. -- Durenda Wilson, author of The Unhurried Homeschooler and host, The Durenda Wilson Podcast

In an age of enslavement to digital devices and corrosive social media, Eryn Lynum brings parents—and indeed us all—a desperately needed message. If you want to see children grounded in what is real and true and good, get them outside with their hands in the dirt, their feet in puddles, and their eyes and ears and noses probing the wonders of God’s creation. Lynum makes a compelling argument for not just sending the kids out to play, but also for joining them in their journey of discovery. In each chapter, practical tips are provided for things to try, and more importantly, how to help your kids see the connections between God’s written word and his natural creations. -- Gregg Davidson, professor of geology & geological Engineering at the University of Mississippi

Rooted in Wonder is a must-read with and for your family! Not only does Eryn help you understand the depths of God’s love through nature, but she makes the outdoors a living classroom for you and your children. She will help open your eyes to both small and large miracles while experiencing God’s creation and give you practical ways to help engage your children in the Step Outside sections. If you’re not much of an “outdoorsy” type, you will be after reading this book. You will experience God’s nature in new and curious ways, while putting into action Deuteronomy 6:7, “You shall teach them diligently to your children when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way.” Prepare yourself for a collision with creation and curiosity as you encounter the wonder of God in a fresh and new way. -- Jessie Seneca, author, speaker, leadership trainer, and founder of More of Him Ministries

Rooted in Wonder is a soul-refreshing meditation that invites the reader to recover a sense of wonder and gratitude for God’s magnificent artistry. With engaging prose and keen insights gleaned from both Scripture and nature, Lynum offers a trail map for the cultivation of a sacramental understanding of creation. -- Melissa Cain Travis, PhD, author of Science and the Mind of the Maker

This beautifully written book will help you fall in love with nature once more—and with the God who created it all. Our kids desperately need to stop looking down at worthless things. It’s time to look up into the big blue sky and look around because God’s handiwork reveals his majesty. Whether you live in a city or at the water’s edge, there are ways to reconnect your family to the restorative power of nature. This book will show you how to step outside and awaken your sense of wonder and faith. -- Arlene Pellicane, host of the Happy Home podcast and author of Parents Rising
