Michael Foust recently sat down to talk to actress Chrissy Metz and songwriter Bradley Collins about their children's book on prayer. Here is a look at what they talked about:

Emmy-award-winning This Is Us actress Chrissy Metz has often said prayer is integral to her daily life, and in a new children's book, she encourages children to pray while telling them that God is by their side, both day and night.

When I Talk to God, I Talk About You is co-authored by Metz and songwriter Bradley Collins and includes colorful illustrations of animal families accompanied by text with rhyming verses about prayer. It's intended to be read by a parent or adult with a child.
