Children often begin their faith journey with basic but big questions like How does God speak to me? This charming picture book from the best-selling author of Whisper and his daughter provides a fun and clever answer!

God Speaks in Whispers helps even the youngest readers look for God's voice in the universe: in creation, as he speaks through his followers, and in the Bible as he speaks through his Word. With a charming rhyme pattern and vivid pictures, Mark and Summer Batterson invite little ones to imagine how God might be showing them love every day, by leaning in close to hear God's whisper.

Read an Excerpt

Big sound, little sound,

where in the world is God’s voice found?

Can you hear God crashing in the waves?

Can you hear Him echo in the caves?


Do you hear Him when a bird chirps?

Or when your sister slurps?

Can you hear Him on top of a mountain?

Or even at the drinking fountain?


Do you hear God’s voice when you’re feeling sad?

Or perhaps when you’re a little mad?


God speaks through stars that shoot through the sky.

God speaks in whispers as soft as a sigh.


Why is God whispering so you barely hear?

It’s really quite simple: you have to get near!

Sort of like Grandma, who gives you a hug

or tucks you in bed, nice and snug.

God whispers down deep to the depths of your heart,

“I’ve been with you from the very start.”
