Whisper, Whisper: Learning about Church: Rhyming text pairs with in-sanctuary tips, and engaging, colorful illustrations. Each page has a couplet that introduces what is happening at church; the optional activities help to focus attention and remind about behavior.

Books for Adults

Family Vocation: God’s Calling in Marriage, Parenthood, and Childhood answers questions like, “What does it mean to be called as a husband, a wife, a parent, a child? How does the grace of the gospel impact how we carry out these particular callings? How does God’s presence address the struggles that our own family faces?”


Blessed: God’s Gift of Love is co-written with Christopher Mitchell, an Old Testament Exegete and editor with Concordia Publishing House. It explores blessing in the Old Testament to explore the nature of God’s blessing of His creation and the steadfast love He has for us.
