Emma -- the little artist with a big dream from Karen Kiefer's bestselling Drawing God -- is back, a few years older, and looking for God in a whole new way.

When Emma returns home from spending school vacation on Nana's farm — a place where Nana says she “grows God” — Emma is inspired to try to grow God, too. Emma knows that she must be patient and believe, but she soon realizes that planting seeds and growing God is hard work! Join Emma as she cares for God's creation, and finds out how a seed of opportunity can grow into something amazing.

Written by Karen Kiefer


Like the parables of Jesus, Growing God invites children into the mystery of how God is made known in the world around us. With joyful simplicity, Karen Kiefer and Kathy De Wit introduce young readers to nature not only as something that needs our help and care, but as a place of sacred encounter.

Laura Alary, author of Here: The Dot We Call Home, and many other books

A children’s book that echoes Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, S.J.’s poem, “Trust in the Slow Work of God.” Growing God is growing in God and learning to find God in all things, no matter how big or small.

Quang D. Tran, S.J., co-creator and co-host of the “Breakfast with God” children's ministry program.
