Emma — the little artist with a big dream from Karen Kiefer’s bestselling Drawing God — is back, a few years older, and looking for God in a whole new way.

“Like the parables of Jesus, Growing God invites children into the mystery of how God is made known in the world around us… Young readers are introduced to nature not only as something that needs our help and care, but as a place of sacred encounter.”
—Laura Alary, author of Here: The Dot We Call Home, and many other books
