All God’s Children (the book)

This small user-friendly book is an essential guide to open and caring conversations with young children about gender and sexual orientation.


All God’s Children:Teaching Children About Sexual Orientation and Gender Diversity addresses your concerns, your questions, and your search for just the right words; it also suggests ideas for children’s sermons and classroom activities. As you read, you’ll learn to model openness, respect, and the affirming belief that everyone, regardless of sexual orientation or gender difference, is a beloved child of God.

Anyone who has a loving relationship with young children—parents, family, friends, pastors, Sunday School teachers—will benefit from reading and discussing All God’s Children.
