“These beautiful books will help both children and parents grow in their knowledge and love for God. The Big Theology for Little Hearts series is exactly the type of resource I want to read again and again with my own kids.”
Hunter Beless, Founder and Executive Director, Journeywomen podcast

“Theology is not just for big people! From our very first days, it’s critical that we begin to learn about God—who he is, what he is like, and what he has done to save us in Jesus Christ. In Big Theology for Little Hearts, Devon and Jessica Provencher have provided an incredibly helpful resource for teaching your children about God and his gospel. With bold illustrations, childlike language, and beautiful simplicity, they faithfully unfold the theological truths that shape our Christian hope. If you’re a parent—or even if you’re not—these little books will be a blessing and help to you.”
Greg Gilbert, Senior Pastor, Third Avenue Baptist Church, Louisville, Kentucky

“We love board books that help our littlest children easily understand the deep truths of the gospel. With beautiful illustrations and simple definitions for theological terms, the Big Theology for Little Hearts board books are a great resource for parents who want to lay a biblical foundation for their young children.”
Emily Jensen and Laura Wifler, Cofounders, Risen Motherhood; coauthors, Risen Motherhood: Gospel Hope for Everyday Moments

“Delightful pictures, clear style, and faithful theology! Big Theology for Little Hearts will engage our children and launch us into teaching our little ones about our Lord.”
Christopher W. Morgan, Dean and Professor of Theology, California Baptist University; coeditor, ESV Systematic Theology Study Bible

“Devon and Jessica have done an outstanding job of creating an engaging series for children that plainly sets forth the gospel. These books will surely serve to clarify thoughts that little ones are formulating and will lead to helpful conversations along the way. The words are plain even as the concepts are profound. The illustrations are winsome and clear. I look forward to reading this series to my grandchildren. What a worthy addition to the libraries of all who seek to teach big truths to children!”
Mary K. Mohler, Director, Seminary Wives Institute, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

“Devon and Jessica have provided a tool for parents to introduce their children to attributes of God and deep theological truths without leaning on cliches like ‘the old man in the sky.’ And while Jessica hasn’t tried to draw a picture of the eternal, immortal, invisible God, she has drawn captivating images that will give little hearts memorable concepts of who this God reveals himself to be throughout Scripture. I couldn’t be more excited to use these books in my family and pass them on to other families in my church.”
Brian Zunigha, Elder, Redeemer Baptist Church; Director of Discipleship Ministries, California Baptist University
