"Before God created the world you were in God's mind. God thought of you and loved you from the beginning. Before God created the world God knew that You would be a child of God." - from God Thought of You

What child could resist hearing the story of the joy with which God created the world - the light, dark, animals, and more - and especially the children. Mark Bozzuti-Jones's beautiful text, and Jennifer Haywood's colorful and lively illustrations teach children that they are the light of the world and a friend of Gods, a child who will care for the planet and all that God created. Each child is a sign of God's love, loved by her parents, and a reminder to all of us, writes Bozzuti-Jones, that we are all created as children of the living God.

Jennifer Johnson Haywood has illustrated many books, as well as stationary, magazines, stickers, puzzles, and toys. She teaches art classes for children as well as art and humanities classes at the college level. She lives in southwest Michigan with her husband and daughter.

The Rev. Mark Bozzutti-Jones, a former Jesuit who is now an Episcopal priest, is an associate rector of St. Bartholomews Church in New York City. He is an award-winning author and has written a children's biography of Barbara Harris, first woman bishop of the Episcopal Church.
