NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Sept. 1, 2021) – Pastor and bestselling author Levi Lusko is known for making tough topics accessible while drawing his readers toward a deeper, richer spiritual life. In his first children’s devotional, Lusko tackles real issues kids face in a wild world of uncertainty. Roar Like a Lion: 90 Devotions to a Courageous Faith (ISBN: 9781400224364) debuts Sept. 14 wherever books are sold.

With eye-catching art, captivating stories, fascinating facts, Bible verses and prayers, and simple action steps, Roar Like a Lion helps kids approach both fun and tough times with strength, courage and certainty in God’s faithfulness.

A pastor and parent of five children, ages 4 to 15 and one in Heaven, Lusko relates to modern challenges parents and kids face. Known for being extremely well-received by millennial and Gen X Christians, Lusko’s ability to address real-life situations with compassion, grace, and biblical authenticity is showcased in each devotion.

“Hardships are inevitable – even at a tender young age,” said Lusko. “I wrote this book to give children encouragement that they can be courageous—no matter what they are going through. I think parents, younger siblings, grandparents, and those looking for uplifting homeschool material will see this as a tremendous resource.”

Covering topics such as peer pressure, bullying, loss, handling new challenges and past disappointments, purpose and faith, Roar Like a Lion encourages kids to “run toward the roar” as they face their fears, knowing that God is with them every step of the way. Roar Like a Lion is a fun, trustworthy read that can spark discussion on meaningful topics and get children in the habit of reading a biblically-based devotional.
