Sarah Young, author of the best-selling "Jesus Calling" and "Jesus Listens" series passed away on August 31, 2023. 

Sarah was a prolific author who shared the gospel of Jesus Christ through dozens of books that sold more than 45- million copies worldwide.


I was blessed to be asked by her editors at Tommy Nelson/HarperCollins  to work with Sarah on one of her last children's books, Jesus Calling, Advent & Christmas Prayers. I'm grateful to have been a part of Sarah's ministry and for the trust she put in me to help share her words with the world. 

From the publisher:

Celebrate Advent and Christmas with this read-aloud children's prayer book by Sarah Young, bestselling author of Jesus Calling, Jesus Always, and Jesus Listens. This board book for ages 0-4 includes an Advent calendar of 25 prayers alongside a simple retelling of the Christmas story that invites the hope of Jesus and the joy of the nativity into little hearts.​ Jesus Calling Advent and Christmas Prayers will remind children that Jesus loves them so much that He left heaven to be born as a tiny baby in a stable so He can be with them forever.
