The debut children's book from bestseller Michael Todd, this heartwarming story that uses a cup overflowing with water to show kids how to share love with others is a gem that families will treasure.
Drawing on key ideas from his #1 New York Times bestseller Relationship Goals, Pastor Michael Todd offers a fun and sweet tale about how developing a close relationship with God spills over into healthy relationships with our family and friends.
Seven-year-old Isabella loves spending time with her mom and dad, so she feels left out when they prepare to go on a date night without her. Her father brings her into the kitchen and uses the faucet, a pitcher, and cups of water to illustrate how God fills him and Isabella’s mom with love, and they pour love into each other by taking time for their relationship. Then all that love overflows onto their kids! When we make room for ourselves to be filled with God's love and care for our most important relationships, nobody’s “cup of love” will run dry.

Read an Excerpt
Mommy’s eyes are closed so tight.
Who’s she talking to tonight?
I see her sitting on her bed.
She folds her hands and bows her head.
She makes sure to say “Thanks” and “Please”
and asks for help and grace and peace.
When she’s done, I hear her say,
“In Jesus’s holy name, I pray.”
While I was spying from outside,
Mommy saw me and replied,
“Is that my pretty girl I see?
Why don’t you come and pray with me?”
“It’s so important that we pray,
spend time with Jesus every day,
and talk to Him like a best friend.
Then when you’re done, you say, ‘Amen.’”
