We Belong to Each Other

by Liz Marie and Jose Galvan


I was pleased to work with the Thomas Nelson editors on this book by popular cozy enthusiast and blogger, Liz Marie, and her husband Jose Galvan. We Belong to Each Other, their first children's book, focuses on finding family. It draws on the sweet story of bringing home a lamb to their home, White Cottage Farm. 

At first, Grace feels as if she doesn’t belong because she is the only sheep at White Cottage Farm. But as she experiences the love of the other animals and of the kind man and woman and their baby, she begins to feel safe in her new home and recognizes that God provided her with a loving family.

With delightful rhyming text and cozy farm illustrations, children will learn:


• The affirming message that home is any place filled with love
• Families come in all shapes and sizes
• How to embrace acceptance with love and patience

You'll love holding your children close as you share the heart of this book with them over and over: we belong to each other.
