Learn to See God in Their Daily Lives

MINNEAPOLIS – Jennifer Grant, author of five books including Love You More and Wholehearted Living, will publish her first children’s book, Maybe God is Like That Too, in March 2017. An exploration of the Fruit of the Spirit from Galatians 5:22-23,Maybe God is Like That Too follows a child through a day in his busy city life, helping him identify love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Illustrated by Benjamin Schipper, Maybe God is Like That Too helps children find God in modern daily life, family relationships, and themselves.


“This gentle exploration of the fruit of the Spirit is inspiring and instructive. This book will delight readers young and old alike.” – Katherine Willis Pershey, author of Very Married and Any Day A Beautiful Change

“Jennifer Grant has a particular gift of writing with both gentle simplicity and rich wisdom, and I found this book refreshingly moving. My eight-year-old son did too. He’s much more drawn to good questions than pat explanations of faith, and this story speaks his language, and points to a God who is not only at work around him, but who is good to him as well. I’m grateful for it.” – Micha Boyett, author of Found: A Story of Questions, Grace, and Everyday Prayer

“I’m always looking for ways to talk with my children about who God is, and this book gives me a sweet, warm, relatable way to do it. I love how the story and illustrations show God at work all around us, in the city, in the classroom, and in our homes. I will share this book with many friends!” – Amy Julia Becker, author of Small Talk and A Good and Perfect Gift
