God Made Light Children's Book

The past 72 hours since launching God Made Light have been so incredibly exciting and I wanted to take a minute to say thank you.

Thank you for buying books.

Thank you for sharing about #GodMadeLight on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.

Thank you for emails and comments of support.

Thank you for saying yes, our children need to know that they are light.

God Made Light is currently ranked #3 in multiple Christian children’s book categories, which is a bit surreal for a little self-published book.

God Made Light RankingsOne of my favorite parts of the week has been seeing so many families Instagramming pictures of their kids loving the book, it’s art and lyrical story.

Kids reading God Made LightPhotos by Natalie Grant, VeepVeep, VeraSweeney, AliaJoy, AngieSmith19, LisaLeonard, CrystalStine and BeckyHigginsLLC.

If you have a photo of your child/family reading God Made Light or using the products, please Instagram them and tag them #GodMadeLight. We would love to see them and read how they are impacting your family.

I loved what my friend Vera Sweeney (whose oldest son was in the hospital this week) wrote last night:

I cried while reading #godmadelight to my kids today. Because they were all home. Because it’s such an important message that needs to be heard by our youth. And because it was written by a dear friend. I cannot say how proud I am of @jessicanturner and her husband. This book is just beautiful. (And once in a while when the playing is done, look up in the sky and thank God for the sun.) thank you for writing this and thank you for sharing it with the world. Truly.

And this Amazon review from Amy Mascott

As a Reading Specialist and mom of three young children (10, 9, and 7 years old), I most highly recommend this book for any and all families who want a rich home library filled with books designed to shape the minds and spirits of our little ones.

I love everything about this book. I love the illustrations which are alive and awake with energy and radiance and the rhythmic, lyrical language. I love the message that God’s light radiates in so many things, including the reader, and I love the note cards and other related products which also carry the message that God made light…”

God Made Light is a book we all need in our family libraries. I hope that, if you haven’t, you will purchase one for the children in your life – your own kids, grandkids, families friends, etc. We know you will be blessed.

Again, thank you so much for your support. The gratitude and love I feel for The Mom Creative community is deep.
