In this first book of The Back to God Game series, six-year-old Alden and his Granna are returning home from a long trip and are playing the traditional "I Spy" game. Her grandson is tired of playing so she remembers a game she played with her son when he was little and invites him to play.The game involves taking anything on Earth and tracing it back to creation. At first, the boy doesn't believe that everything comes from something that was on Earth at creation, but soon he realizes that God provided everything we need and that's why we thank Him for everything He has given us.

From the Author
I've always wanted to write a book and people are always telling me, "You need to write a book!" For many years, the concepts in The Back to God Game have been searching for their place in some kind of format. As I've shared these ideas over the years, I've gotten wide eyes and puzzled faces..."What do you mean everything goes back to God?" It wasn't until I shared with my grandson, Alden, and suggested we play a form of the game, that the words and the story found a resting place as a read-aloud book that both children and adults could share.
