Risen Motherhood’s Laura Wifler to write children’s book with The Good Book Company

Charlotte, NC, February 2020—The Good Book Company is delighted to announce that Laura Wifler, Co-Founder of Risen Motherhood and Co-Author of Risen Motherhood: Gospel Hope For Everyday Moments, will be publishing her first children’s book with TGBC in the fall of 2021.

The book will be the twelfth book in the bestselling Tales that Tell the Truth series, which boasts award- winning titles such as The Garden, the Curtain and the Cross, and God’s Very Good Idea. The series combines stunning illustrations by Catalina Echeverri with faithful, Bible-centered story-telling.

Wifler’s book will explore prayer and show children how and why we pray. Starting in Eden and leading children through how God has always invited his people to speak to him, it will not only help children know what they can say to their Father, but excite them about the wonder and privilege of being able to talk to their Creator anywhere, anytime, about anything.

Carl Laferton, Executive Vice President of Publishing at The Good Book Company, says, “As one of the founders of Risen Motherhood, Laura has been a huge blessing to hundreds of thousands of children through encouraging and equipping their moms (and dads!) to live out and teach well the gospel to them. I’m thrilled that Laura has chosen to publish her first kids’ book with TGBC; and I’m looking forward to my own kids becoming excited about the privilege of prayer as they read her book.”

Laura commented, “It’s an honor to partner with The Good Book Company to contribute to such a well-respected and beloved series as Tales that Tell the Truth. I’m thrilled for the opportunity to help children grasp what a joy and privilege it is to pray, and learn how this important spiritual discipline is not too lofty or complicated for even the youngest among us.”

Wifler is represented by the Wolgemuth & Associates literary agency.

Laura Wifler and Emily Jensen founded Risen Motherhood with the aim to encourage, equip, and challenge moms to apply the gospel to their everyday lives. In 2019, they published a book by the same name, Risen Motherhood: Gospel Hope For Everyday Moments.
