When God Turned On the Light

A Story About Creation

In her newest children’s story, beloved author Allia Zobel Nolan treats her young audience to an unforgettable look at how God created the world. Imagine that day when God smiled and His love and light filled the Earth! Set to rhyme and accompanied by Linda Clearwater’s colorful and engaging illustrations, this story inspires 3- to 6-year-olds to imagine how fun it would be to dance through fields of brand new red poppies, spy on freshly created pink flamingos, and climb up just-made mountain peaks.

Best of all, children come to understand that God is the source of all life and that His Son, Jesus, came to live in their hearts and light up their lives.

A Word from the Author

"I hope children will learn that it was God's love that first created light and started the world, and that it's God's love that keeps the light shining in the world and in our hearts through his Son, Jesus. I choose everyday scenes—from the sun on cornfields to the cat's shadow that turns her tiger on the wall to the holy personification of Light—to remind little ones that the light they see that mirrors beauty, color, and warmth, is a reflection of God's love."
Allia Zobel Nolan, author of When God Turned on the Light

"Nolan employs a beautiful blend of poetic artistry and Biblical authenticity to simply show how God extends that love in sending another light, His Son Jesus, to save the children of the world. When God Turned On the Light is a book many children's authors may wish they had written, and one which many children will desire to read."
L. Jerome Jones, Fruit Of Righteousness Abounding Grace And Truth Ministry Inc.

"When God Turned on the Light is a heart-warming and bright presentation of Creation as well as an exemplary introduction to Jesus —God's Son, the Light of the World. Effortlessly, Allia Zobel Nolan incorporates alliteration with words a child, ages three to six years old, can visualize."
Carol Castagna, JoyPsalms.com

"Linda Clearwater's artwork almost literally glows! Paired with Allia Zobel Nolan's brief, poetic text, When God Turned On the Light will surely captivate both children and adults."
