“With silence at a premium in the modern world, the simple yet treasured words and illustrations in this timeless book are a reminder for all of us of our true identity. May the Lord bless this endeavour of the heart and of the Holy Spirit.”

– Julie Zaar, Catechist,

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd

“This book is very Franciscan in that it’s simple, yet deep. It’s about God’s love. This is the heart of Christianity and the Gospel – to know that we are loved by God. That’s all that matters.  This book captures this message beautifully, and it’s a message for everyone. I can just imagine a child in bed, listening to his or her parents reading the words and hearing how precious, unique and loved they are.”

– Father Dean Mathieson OFMCap,

Ss Peter and Paul’s Church, South Melbourne, Australia

Three-year-old Nicholas was read the book by the author at a friend’s party. A few days later, this conversation took place between mum Monica and her son Nicholas:

“I asked Nicholas about the book and he said, ‘Shhh! God is in the silence’. Then he said, ‘Hey mum, God is in my heart. He is in your heart too! He is in both our hearts.’

“It truly is a wonderful, affirming read. It’s what children (and adults) need to be reminded of again and again in a post digital world. Thank you.’
