Karen Ferguson and Guess Who Is in God's Family--Signed Hardcover copy to Commenter!


Dear Readers, I don't always feature children's books on my blog, but when I do...these are beautiful! I'm so thinking that I'll buy some and stock away for future grandchildren. Do you have small children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren? Share below!


Introduce yourself—name, where you’re from, and something people notice when they meet you.


I’m Karen Ferguson. Born and raised in Portland, Oregon in the Pacific NW. Our family relocated to Tennessee near Nashville in 2021, and it feels like I’ve been here most of my life. In a good way! I’m a big fan of the people, the entertainment options, and the gentle beauty of the landscape. I’ve even embraced the hot, sticky summers.  


Ever since I was a child, people have commented most on my smile. I do it a lot :-) 


Tell us about your book—title and back cover blurb.


My second children’s picture book is titled Guess Who Is in God’s Family and is part of a seven book series, published through Ambassador International. It’s scheduled to release in June and is perfect to share with your young readers, ages 5-10. 


From the back cover:




When Lucy comes across some old family pictures, she has a lot of questions for Papa Joe.

• Who are these people?

• Why doesn’t she look like them?


As Papa Joe tells Lucy about her family, he shares with her the uniqueness that God created in each of us from the very beginning, all the way back to our first ancestors, Adam and Eve.


What follows is a wild adventure into the Bible, where Lucy and her papa discover God’s love and faithfulness for all people throughout all of history.


In this second book in the Questions for Kids series, discover how much God loves diversity and how God created your family in the most beautiful and perfect way.


Share one thing that you found difficult or challenging about writing this book.

 

Presenting what can be a complex, heavy topic for kids (The Garden and Adam and Eve), in a way that is engaging and relatable to young readers. This is where Lucy’s backstory comes into play. In addition to the message of the fall in the Garden, which is important to building a strong Christian worldview, there is a heartwarming message of family, diversity, and God’s faithfulness.  The story thread showcases the beauty and diversity with which our Creator made the human family and His Good Plan for us from the very beginning, driving home the timeless truth that God’s love is never-changing, never-failing, and never-ending. 


Ask the blog reader a quirky question or two. I want to encourage comments and engagement. An example might be their best or worst Christmas memory. Share your answer and then look for theirs.

 

My first question is what was the first Bible parable you remember learning as a child? Mine was the Good Samaritan.


Second question is, do you prefer milk chocolate or dark chocolate? It’s dark chocolate for me, I won’t waste calories on milk chocolate ;). My favorite is Chocolove brand Salted Caramel in Dark Chocolate.

Thank you so much. Your book sounds fabulous. I wish I had little ones to share it with. I like milk chocolate. I would say Noah's ARC as well as David and Goliath. God bless you. Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. Stay safe.

Dark chocolate for me!


Noah’s Ark comes to mind… although honestly, I don’t really remember!

Hi Dianne! I find dark chocolate so much more satisfying than milk chocolate :) Noah’s Ark is a popular one, and happens to be the next one in the book series!

Welcome and I think kids and adults too can learn from the children's books you write as well as other authors.
