Lindsey Goff Viducich teams up with NYT bestselling dad, Bob Goff to write new book, “Everybody, Always for Kids”
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Jan. 28, 2021) – As we seek to bring light, laughter, and abundant grace to today’s world, the Goff trademark positive, uplifting storytelling about unconditional love continues to resonate with every generation. Lindsey Goff Viducich teams up with her dad, New York Times bestselling author Bob Goff, with a mission to get children excited about being themselves, caring for others, and making a difference in the world in their new book, “Everybody, Always for Kids.”
Based on Bob Goff’s New York Times bestselling book “Everybody, Always,” “Everybody, Always for Kids” draws kids into a collection of 40 inspirational and entertaining stories. With an exuberant faith, Bob and Lindsey share real-life experiences, providing concrete lessons for kids that show how loving everybody, always, can change the world.
“Our first book, “Love Does for Kids” focused on general themes about who God is, what He thinks of us, and how we put our faith into action,” said Viducich. “This book is the next step after that, answering the question — Now that you know what it means to follow Jesus, what does it mean to show love to other people? There are lots of people in the world who are easy to love, but how do we love people who are difficult for us to love? We looked up very teaching in the Bible about loving others and tied each of those with a story. These stories cover themes like showing honor to others, giving cheerfully, and loving our neighbor.”
In “Everybody, Always for Kids,” the Goffs share a delightful call for kids to live out their own marvelous adventure of loving others. Through each story, the Goffs recall the childlike wonder they’ve experienced in their regular day to day life like using a walkie-talkie to talk to a neighbor, swapping places with a limo driver, pretending to be a wax figure, go-kart racing and more.
“Everybody, Always for Kids” (ISBN# 9781400220830) will be available in hardcover ($17.99) and e-book ($9.99) formats.
