EASES CONCERNS: Elisabeth’s energetic words weave a boy’s tale that’s uplifting and inspiring, offering parents and children a way to talk about fears and anxieties and how we find faith in God.
PRODUCT FEATURES: Paper-over-board hardcover with full-color illustrations throughout. Illustrator for Kathie Lee Gifford’s The Gift that I Can Give, Julia Seal’s sweet illustrations play out in a touching family portrait between the characters.
NAME RECOGNITION: Elisabeth Hasselbeck is a household name, recognized inside and outside the Christian market as an impassioned conservative.
INSPIRED BY HER FAMILY AND MEANINGFUL TAKEAWAY: Elisabeth made the choice to leave a high-profile television career and leaned in to raising her three children, supporting her husband Tim, and many non-profits. Her children’s concerns, prayers, and the loss of a close family friend to cancer served as the inspiration for this book—what does it mean when God doesn’t answer our prayers right away, or the way hoped? Rooted in key verse Hebrews 11:1, she hopes this book will help parents and children connect over the anxiety they might be holding under the surface.
INFLUENTIAL CONNECTIONS: Elisabeth has many close high-profile friends, including Gabe and Rebekah Lyons, Bob Goff, Rachael Ray, Candace Cameron Bure, and Whoopie Goldberg and has connections to The View, Fox & Friends, Rachael Ray, and Late Night.
“Flashlight Night is such a simple yet creative way to help kids (and even adults) understand the act of having faith in things we do not see. This book will help kids not only learn to share all their hopes, dreams, and troubles with the Lord, but also to be patient in prayer and continue to believe even when they might not get the answers they are looking for.”—Super Bowl–winning NFL quarterback Nick Foles and his wife, Tori Foles, certified health coach
“This book feels like a soft knock on the door from a dear friend. It’s an invitation to climb the stairs together, grab a piece of chalk, be honest about our struggles, and wait together with hope. This book is not only a reminder but a beacon reflecting the Great Light that all of us—kids and grown-ups alike—need so desperately today.”—Sissy Goff, M.Ed., LPC-MHSP, director of child and adolescent counseling, Daystar Counseling Ministries, and author of Raising Worry-Free Girls
“Flashlight Night serves as a warm and endearing reminder for children of all ages that nothing is too big or too small for our God. Elisabeth empowers readers with the confidence that they can pray bold prayers to the Father that deeply cares for their hopes and dreams. All families need this book in their home!”—Rebekah Lyons, bestselling author of Rhythms of Renewal
“As soon as we finished the book, my kids wanted to create our own prayer wall. It helps to show that God actually hears and answers our prayers while helping to cultivate a closeness among family members. I love this book, and I can’t wait to start this in our home!”—Kirsten Watson, mom of seven with husband and NFL champion Benjamin Watson, and cohost of Why or Why Not with the Watsons podcast
“I love where this story takes us. Not just kids, but all of us. We need the rich reminders scattered along the journey of this story. This book is full of hope and full of truth, just like my friend, Elisabeth.”—David Thomas, therapist and coauthor of the bestselling Wild Things: The Art of Nurturing Boys and Intentional Parenting
