OMG! How Children See God with Monica Parker

What do children think about God? How do parents open up the subject of God with their young children? Author Monica Parker chronicles conversations she’s had with children on these questions and more in the new book OMG! How Children See God. Using kids’ words and pictures, Parker uncovers the funny to the serious, and the confused to the spiritual when it comes to how they view God.

OMG! showcases the differences and similarities shared by kids of every economic, cultural, and religious background. Their insights can be funny, poignant, and galvanizing, with deeply-rooted sentiments. Parker also considers this book to have the potential to serve as a way for parents to start talking to their children about God. “As soon as a child can talk, many parents begin to consider ‘the God thing’ and how best to open the door to religious teachings or just to have that conversation,” explains Parker “OMG! will, hopefully, help to bring about an understanding that not all faiths view God in the same light, but that doesn’t mean that any one faith is wrong—just different. And today, when so many marriages have diverse religious backgrounds, there is a real need for open-ended and open-minded conversations about God.” Parker hopes that parents will find humor and inspiration in the book for themselves, as well as it to begin talking to their own children about faith, spirituality and religion.
