Laura Wifler, co-founder of Risen Motherhood, releases new kids’ book

CHARLOTTE, NC– The Good Book Company is excited to announce a new addition to the bestselling Tales That Tell The Truth series for children. Written by Laura Wfiler, co-founder and co-author of Risen Motherhood, the book is titled Any Time, Any Place, Any Prayer (The Good Book Company, September 2021). This beautiful Bible storybook, illustrated by the award-winning Catalina Echeverri, will teach kids how to pray.

Spanning the Bible from start to end, the book takes children on a journey from the start of the Bible story to the end. By showing kids God has always made a way for his people to talk with him, Wifler opens the way for kids to embrace access to God through Christ and get excited about talking to God about anything, anytime, anywhere.

Explaining why she approached the topic of prayer for kids by spanning Scripture, Wifler says, “Having three children of my own, I know how prayer can feel intimidating for children. Tracing prayer throughout scripture shows children they’re not alone in these feelings, but because of Christ’s work, they don’t have to be afraid to talk with God.”

Catalina Echeverri’s artwork serves to bring the concept of prayer to a level kids understand and delight in. TGBC EVP Publishing, Carl Laferton, notes, “The combination of Laura’s faithful yet simple writing and Catalina’s creativity have produced a book that will not only tell kids about prayer, but excite them to do it. I read this book to my kids last week and every single page drew them in, prompting a mixture of questions, laughter… and prayer.”.”

Wifler’s prayer for kids as they read this storybook together is that “they realize that talking with God is not just something reserved for dinner time or Sunday mornings—it’s for all the time. I hope they discover what I have found, that being able to talk with God anywhere, anytime about anything, is a beautiful gift.”

A suite of pre-order bonuses will also be available in July and August, including exclusive video content, a family prayer journal, and more.

An accompanying coloring and activity book can be purchased alongside the book.
