If you’re a parent, you might have several of Sandy’s books on your shelves! Sandy is the award-winning creator of the Great Bible Adventure children’s series, several joke books for kids, The Best Worst Dad Jokes, and Kids' Big Questions for God. He says, “There’s something about children – their innocence and trust – I truly believe that that’s why Jesus said we need to become child-like to enter the Kingdom of God.”

On this episode, Sandy and Nicole talk about a number of things, including:

  • The great responsibility of children’s ministry
  • Sandy’s creative process and how his latest book has come together
  • The questions kids have about God and why God delights in our questions
  • How does God hear all our prayers at once?
  • Why doesn’t God just make all of us follow him?
  • How Jesus opens up the door for us to go to heaven
  • Why, oh why, did God make mosquitoes?!
