Sparkhouse Family is now Beaming Books!

Jan 30, 2018 2:30:06 AM / by Kiersti Trautman

Sparkhouse Family has grown since its launch in 2014 and now has a new mission: to publish high-quality children’s books that help kids thrive emotionally, socially, and spiritually. In recognition of these changes, Sparkhouse Family is rebranding as Beaming Books.

Our main reason for this change is to clearly convey our new mission to publish both religious and values-oriented books, and support our new tagline, “Helping Kids Thrive.”

We also want to clearly distinguish from Sparkhouse, our sister imprint. Sparkhouse will continue its mission to develop program and tools to help church leaders and volunteers inspire faith formation in all ages, from birth through adulthood.

All titles previously released by Sparkhouse Family will remain in print and available at
