“I want the young reader to understand that while God is all-powerful and all-knowing, He also can relate to us and the things we experience."

In her new book, What Makes God Laugh? ($15.99, paperback, 978-1-62419-298-2; $25.99, hardcover, 978-1-62419-299-9; $9.99, e-book, 978-1-62419-300-2) Daphne M. Pitts’s desire is to show one of the many aspects of God's nature to a young child in a way in which he or she can easily relate to and to make them smile. The author states “[My mission is] to let the child know that first – God is their friend.”
“I want the young reader to understand that while God is all-powerful and all-knowing, He also can relate to us and the things we experience,” states the author. “I believe the story of Lazarus as told by John in the 11th chapter shows us that God does feel emotion. John 11:35 tells us that Jesus wept when he saw how deeply saddened Mary and the others were at the death of Lazarus. Well, surely if He can cry, He laughs!”
