When I began preparing Jesus, Light of the World: Praying the Scriptures Through Advent for release, I began looking for children’s books that could be paired with this devotional/prayer journal for mama. I found a brand new book, by Matthew Paul Turner, that is just perfect. I love it and I know you will too! Matthew is husband to Jessica who is one of my favorite bloggers at The Mom Creative.
God Made Light is a sweet, rhyming picture book about God creating light…and then the importance of light from there after! This book celebrates light in God’s creation and then the light in each of us.
“Let there be light! That’s what God said. And light began shining and then started to spread.” Matthew Paul Turner, from God Made Light.
Then, I realized that Dayspring had collaborated with Matthew Paul Turner to create an entire line of goodies to go with this children’s book. Perfect.

Encouragement Notes for Kids…
Take a look at one of these little encouragement notes. MY FAVORITE!! Swoon! Now that our kids are in school, lunch box notes are one of my FAVORITE things to do!! 🙂
Is this not absolutely precious??
Pair this children’s book with a mom’s prayer guide on the topic of light, along with more educational ideas for studying light with your children found on this Pinterest board…and you are good to go! Also be sure to check out these gorgeous coloring pages and activity sheets created to go with God Made Light.
Jesus, Light of the World…we worship You!
