Love Letters from God: Bible Stories for a Girl’s Heart

9780310753285_image (1)About ten years ago I had a crazy dream. I would write a Biblestory book for children… and it would be published by Zondervan. My husband, ever the encourager, (and maybe also thinking about his retirement) cheered me on. Dreams do come true. Mine did. I call it the Ephesians 3:20 principle… that God can do immeasurably more than all we could ever ask or imagine.

In 2014, Love Letters from God, my first book, was published (by Zondervan) and was quickly followed by Little Love Letters from God and Christmas Love Letters from God.

Unbelievably, the fourth book in this series is about to hit the shelves. Written for girls aged 4-8, Love Letters from God: Bible Stories for a Girl’s Heart will be published on April 4th and tells the grace-filled stories of fourteen women and girls in the Bible. Each one is followed by its own lift-the-flap love letter from God, which can be addressed to the reader.

The book opens with the story of Eve,The First Girl:

And ends with an invitation for the reader to lift-the-flap and write their own love letter to God, who, after all, always wants an RSVP.

My prayer for this book is that God’s Holy Spirit will be felt by all who turn its pages, just as I felt that strong, stirring presence when I wrote it.

I hope you enjoy hearing me read my favorite story from the book.

Love Letters from God: Bible Stories for a Girl’s Heart — 6 Comments

  1. Congratulations on another wonderful Love Letters book! I know little girls will love these stories of women from the Bible. Thank you for being faithful and following the Holy Spirit’s leading in writing God’s message for children.

  2. Oh, Glenys! Your video almost brought me to tears. You are a magnificent reader. Your voice is so comforting. I felt every word. I’ve got to get this book (and all the others!) for my little granddaughter. Thanks for including the video with your post. It spoke volumes to me and I know it will to little hearts everywhere.

    • Oh Linda, God bless you for your lovely comment. I am so very blessed to have a wonderful publisher (not to mention God’s Holy Spirit guiding me!) This book, more than any other, was one where I truly felt God’s presence as I wrote it. I titled it ‘Girls’ Love Letters from God’ but Zondervan decided to call it: Love Letters from God: Bible Stories for a Girl’s Heart’. I really LOVE that, because it touched my heart to write them, as I hope it will touch children’s hearts as they read it. Do let me know if you decide to order any of the books. I would love to sign a self-adhesive bookplate for your granddaughter and send her bookmarks! You can just send me a private message. God bless you for your encouraging words.
