Mother God

Teresa Kim Pecinovsky

Many of us know God the Father, but did you know that God is our Mother too? Mother God introduces a dozen images of God inspired by feminine descriptions from Scripture. God is a creative seamstress, generous baker, fierce mother bear, protective mother hen, strong woman in labor, nurturing nursing mother, wise grandmother, and comforting singer of lullabies. When we open our eyes to the divine feminine, we are all welcomed into a fuller, more diverse understanding of what it means to be made in the image of God.

God Made All Your Feelings

Amanda Flinn

We all have lots and lots of feelings, adults and kids alike. For young children, feelings can be overwhelming and difficult to manage. God Made All Your Feelings explores the wide variety of emotions we all experience—happiness, sadness, anger, fear—and gently reassures kids that it is okay to feel these feelings and that God is with us through all the ups and downs. All our emotions help us grow into the people we're meant to be, and no matter how we are feeling, God loves us.
