New York Times Bestselling Author & Prominent D.C. Pastor Mark Batterson Collaborates with His Daughter on “God Speaks in Whispers”— a Fun & Beautifully Illustrated Picture Book that Helps Children Listen for God’s Voice
Children often begin their faith journey with basic but big questions like “How does God speak to me?” Now, Mark Batterson—the best-selling and award-winning author of Whisper—
has joined his daughter, Summer Batterson Dailey, to provide a fun and clever answer in God Speaks in Whispers
This new picture book helps even the youngest readers look for God's voice in the universe: in creation, as he speaks through his followers, and in the Bible as he speaks through his Word.
With a charming rhyme pattern and fun, vivid pictures beautifully drawn by Benedetta Capriotti, Mark and Summer invite little ones to imagine how God might be showing them love every day, by leaning in close to hear God's whisper. God is speaking, rain or shine, God is loving all the time. Above all else, know this is true, that God is singing around you. God Speaks in Whispers
, which makes the perfect gift, will encourage children—and their parents—in how God is actively loving them all the time and drawing in close and listening closely to every single prayer! And what is He saying in that voice, still and small? That you, my dear, are His favorite of all!
“I loved reading books to Summer when she was a little girl. Writing one together was even more fun!” Batterson says. “As parents, there is no greater privilege or responsibility than helping our kids hear the voice of God. That is our hope, our prayer for God Speaks in Whispers
