GraceFull: Growing a Heart That Cares for Our Neighbors

Hope and Anna love seeing each other at church. When a Sunday grace offering is collected to help lift up Anna’s homeless family, Hope begins to ask questions and has a unique opportunity to learn what grace looks like, both for her and for Anna’s immigrant family. This touching story teaches children that God showers grace that is meant to be shared—allowing us all to be GraceFull!

In this follow up to her first two books, ColorFull and ThoughtFull, Dorena Williamson opens a dialogue on the tough subjects of poverty and homelessness and offers children encouragement to show God’s grace and love to others whose home life or homeland might look very different than their own.

“The Lipscomb University College of Education is so appreciative for sharing your journey in publishing three beautifully diverse children’s books ColorFull, ThoughtFull and GraceFull, with our Diverse Learner’s class! Your work will aide young educators as they strive to create multiculturally rich classrooms for all students. Dorena, your passion for creating learning environments where diversity is taught from a strengths-based perspective is evident in all that you do and I’m so thankful to be able to join you in this important life-changing work!”
