Sheila Walsh - Is God Still Awake?

In this episode Amy and Mike catch up with author and speaker Sheila Walsh to chat about her journey and new book for kids Is God Still Awake?

In this delightful full-color picture book that teaches children about prayer, bestselling author Sheila Walsh helps you show your kids how, when, and why to talk with God as they learn more of who God is and how much He loves them!

Inspired by the ways God has used her book Praying Women, Sheila Walsh wanted to share her passion for prayer with kids--a passion that began when she was a little girl who wondered if God could hear her any time of the day or night.

Is God Still Awake? introduces curious young readers to Poppy: a little girl who has big questions about God! Poppy wants to know how to talk with God and whether God listens to her. As she goes through her day with her cat by her side, Poppy discovers that God is always there--even when the world is asleep!

With humorous, rhyming text, Is God Still Awake? assures children that God loves them and is always with them. Whether it's day or night, God is awake, He's listening, and He loves to hear His children speak!

The Inventions of God (and Eva)

This week Amy and Mike talk with author Dave Connis about his new picture book, The Inventions of God (and Eva)

From whirligigs to robots, children love to imagine and create. But where does all of their curiosity and innovation come from? In The Inventions of God (and Eva), Dave Connis, author and father of three tells an adorable story that shows children that their creativity is not a coincidence but is the image and imagination of God living in them.

Masterfully illustrated by Amy Domingo, the book introduces little Eva, a budding engineer. Just like God, Eva loves to invent all kinds of things and make broken things new. While Eva isn’t always happy with the earlier forms of her creations, God loves every version of His—including Eva!

While celebrating innovation and a STEAM approach to learning, The Inventions of God (and Eva) also shines a light on God’s limitless creativity, His love for His children, and what it means to be made in His image.

Lively and full of heart, this one-of-a-kind picture book for readers of Matthew Paul Turner and kids ages 3-7 is sure to be treasured by families who long to instill in their children a love for and knowledge of their Creator.

Each practical devotion is based on one of Solomon’s proverbs and includes a short prayer and simple activity, all tools that can change your thinking and grow your integrity. Spend one hundred days listening to what King Solomon has to say, and let these ancient proverbs inspire your life today.
