One hundred prayers from a child and one hundred poignant reflections from her mother, author Amanda Lamb, show mothers everywhere how to deepen the bond with their children and build a spiritual life together.


Sleepy, rubbing her eyes, Chloe looked up at her mom and said, “Mommy, I love you to God and back.” In a way that only a child could express, Chloe wanted to show her mom just how deep her love was. In this charming, touching book readers get a heartwarming peek into how bedtime prayers deepened their connection and built their faith together.


I Love You to God and Back (Thomas Nelson) shares one hundred of Chloe’s bedtime prayers and the profound reflections they ignite in her mom as she is challenged by her child to examine and renew her own spirituality. It will help any mother lead her child intentionally into faith while acknowledging the challenges parents face in today’s world.


I Love You to God and Back will take readers on a heartfelt journey that will make them laugh, cry and hopefully inspire them to create their own faith traditions with their children. Readers will joyfully relate to this regular mom stumbling through the darkness into the light with a six-year-old guide.
