Little Tinket Potten was having a great day … until she found herself stuck inside a cravat.

SPOILER ALERT: This isn’t really a kid’s book. But it is a book for kids because it’s written about two groups of people who care the most about kids: Skeeples and Lomes.

Skeeples live to shine the light of truth into dark places. Skeeples are professionals at balancing grace with truth in a way that few people truly understand.

Lomes are the world champions of unconditional love. They risk anything, go anywhere, and fight longer for a child’s heart than anyone. Unfortunately, Skeeples and Lomes don’t always get along. Will they be able to work together when Tinket finds herself in an evil cave filled with goo?

Skeeples N Lomes! is a parable that explains how leaders and parents must work together to influence the next generation.

“As a mom and a ministry leader, I know how crucial it is for my preschooler to understand the basic truth that ‘God made me.’ The Creation Story tells the story of the whole of creation in a fun rhyme and beautiful illustrations all the while reminding preschoolers they are God’s greatest, most important creation. This book is a must have for me in my small groups and in my home!”

—Kelly Stockdale, Family Director, The Hill

“What a great book for introducing children to the story of creation—they will want to read it over and over it again! It’s captivating, fun to chant aloud, and a great way to begin reading God’s Word with any age.”

—Lauren Bowman, writer and mother of five
