NATIONAL BESTSELLER - 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?
The boy shares the wall with a friend, who records her own prayers. Later, they visit the chalkboard wall at dusk with a flashlight. The boy's mom shines the light on some prayers and turns it off at other times, pointing out that their prayers (and the children's faith) are still there, even in the dark, and that God hears every request. Mom says, Sometimes we see God's yes, and other times we don't. But just because it hasn't happened, doesn't mean it won't. Even when it's dark and dimand when we cannot see, let's choose to place our trust in God.He's close to you and me.Author:
