“Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you.” These words from Jeremiah 1:5 and a vivid dream led Claire Boudreaux Bateman to reflect on God’s gifts—the gift of life, the gift of an incredible inner light, the gift of family—regardless of circumstances, struggles, illness, or disability. In language appropriate for very young children and with beautiful watercolor illustrations by Katie Norwood Alexander, Bateman describes a heavenly setting in which angels are preparing a child for life on earth and God has a personal encounter with each child. One child worries about losing the light and forgetting about God. The light is permanent, God assures her, and will continue glowing as she learns to love. While the story appeals to children, it also speaks to parents who, like Bateman, struggle with infertility and those who have experienced the loss of a child. “I think this book gives parents an opportunity—no matter what issue they are facing—to explore God’s presence in their struggles and to find the light within,” she writes. “The light can both comfort and guide us to find the best way forward."
