Make Space for Jesus: Launch Event

March 21, 2022

Make Room has a little sibling!

Back in 2016 Paraclete Press published my book Make Room: A Child’s Guide to Lent and Easter. Last year they invited me to take up the challenge of transforming it into a board book for the littlest listeners. This was a far more difficult process than I had imagined as it involved paring an almost-2000 word text back to 200 words. But I hope that you will find the newer version to be just as meaningful and useful as the original.

Make Space for Jesus launched today and I was delighted to have a chance to discuss it with Glenys Nellist, author of many lovely books for children (including one coming out from Paraclete Press in 2024). Glenys and I have connected before through social media, but this was our first opportunity to speak in person (albeit at a distance) and it was such a pleasure. Our host was Rachel McKendree from Paraclete Press–gracious as always!
