Write Now Lit Virtual Book Tour Presents Author Lorita Kelsey Childress




Grandma, how do you know God is real? is about a six-and-half-year-old girl named Kendra who spends a few weeks of her summer vacation with her Grandma. One bright and sunny morning Kendra awakens and asks her Grandma how does she know God is real? Grandma takes Kendra on adventure throughout the neighborhood to show her all of the reasons why she knows God is real.



Kendra has a question for her grandmother and grandfather, and that is, “How do you know God is real?”

And I love the way Grandma answered Kendra. Instead of just telling her a story, her grandmother shows her starting with her breakfast, in her room, at the park and through nature. Of course Grandaddy had to stay home and mow the grass because he wasn’t sure he wanted to answer Kendra’s question.

What an awesome way to teach a child about God! I really enjoyed taking this journey with Kendra and her grandmother for the day as Kendra learned just how real God really is. Kendra is an adorable little girl, and I she and her grandparents had a sweet relationship, and you can tell they enjoyed being together. This is a precious story that I highly recommend especially to grandparents with small grandchildren. It shows how to teach your children about God in a fun unique way and they are sure to remember your time together. And the beautiful illustrations fit so well with the story, helping children to understand the story so much better.

  1. Hi-

    I saw that you reviewed Thank You, God, for Loving me and thought you might be interested in reviewing our latest digital children’s book, God Painted Us a Rainbow. Written by Katrina Streza and illustrated by Lisa Graves, this lovely little book helps kids thank God for the world he created by focusing on seasons and weather.
