About Flashlight Night

In her first picture book, New York Times bestselling author and mother of three Elisabeth Hasselbeck reminds us that little hearts can be anxious too--and that God is always listening to their prayers.

Flashlight Night is narrated by a boy whose parents have used chalkboard paint to create a wall where he and his siblings can write out all their fears, cares, and concerns: Will I learn to blow a bubble? Tie my shoes? Stay out of trouble? Be the friend they choose?

When the boy worries that God isn't responding to his prayers, he and his mom climb the stairs and visit the chalkboard wall at nighttime with a flashlight. She shines the light on some prayers and turns it off at other times, pointing out that the prayer (and his faith) is still there, and in God's hands.

"Sometimes we see His yes," Mom says.
"And sometimes we just don't.
But just because it hasn't happened,
doesn't mean it won't."

Even when it's dark and dim
and when I cannot see,
I choose to place my trust in Him
And I know God's close to me.
