Far from Home
Girls are beautifully and wonderfully made in God’s image. This comprehensive collection of stories focused on 50 women of the Bible shows how God worked in their lives and continues to have a plan and a purpose for his beloved daughters today.
A joyful celebration of God's deep love for little ones, God's Love Is Like Sunshine takes a subject that could be confusing—God's love—and makes it accessible to kiddos. How? By comparing that love to objects and ideas children know and love, such as warm sunshine, overflowing orange juice, and soft clouds. These comparisons paint a beautiful picture of a love that is kind, gentle, and generous. But most importantly, God'sLove Is Like Sunshine celebrates how God's love fills up our hearts so they overflow with kindness, gentleness, and generosity for other people. With illustrations that radiate childlike joy and a message that encourages little ones to love God and the people around them, this sweet board book is sure to make you smile.

A Family Prayer
In a world that seems to change every day, this simple prayer invites you and your family to remember the One who "is the same yesterday, today, and forever" (Hebrews 13:8). Gather your little ones close and end the day with gratitude and rest in God for provision and protection.
Below is an audio version of this book, which Sarah wrote during the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic. A Family Prayer is illustrated by her kids, translated to Spanish by her mother-in-law, narrated in Spanish by her brother-in-law, and produced and scored by her husband. We hope it can bring comfort and peace to your family from ours.
Far from Home
Follow a boy and his family as they say goodbye to their home and travel to a new land—and a new life—far away from all they know and love. Far from Home brings hope to an impossibly difficult situation and gives a face to the nameless millions who have been uprooted from their homes.

"The global refugee crisis is complex and overwhelming, but the people at the center of the crisis are just that: people, children, mothers, and fathers. With a compelling story and beautiful illustrations, Sarah Parker Rubio’s Far from Home helped my children (and their parents) to think through issues of displacement and loss through the eyes of a young boy and points to the hope found in Jesus, who himself was a child refugee."

Sarah Parker Rubio has been an avid reader ever since she convinced her mom to teach her to read before her kindergarten teacher got around to it. Her writing draws on her experiences as the child of missionaries, a partner in an intercultural marriage, and the mother of three kids. She enjoys writing for all ages but is especially drawn to the magic and wonder to be found in writing for children.
Sarah has over fifteen years of experience in the publishing industry as an editor. Over the years she has had the opportunity to help shape dozens of books on a wide variety of topics. Her favorite books are the ones that give readers a window into a new world—a different culture, a magical universe, an obscure branch of science, a new idea, or an old idea presented in a new way.
Sarah’s goal is to create books that will help readers explore new ideas, grasp foundational concepts, and develop empathetic and compassionate hearts—and have fun in the process!
