About the Author

Teresa Kim Pecinovsky was born in South Korea and raised in Iowa. An ordained minister and hospice chaplain, she lives with her spouse and two children in Houston, Texas.

Khoa Le has illustrated picture books published in a number of different countries, including the 2020 Sydney Taylor Honor book Miriam at the River. She is also an author, a graphic designer, and a painter. Khoa has a passion for travel, an eagerness to learn about different cultures, and a desire to discover the beauty of the world. Her inner moth makes her attracted to any source of light, but her dream is to one day see the northern lights. She lives in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam, with her five cats.

"A lavish and loving exploration of the feminine facets of the Christian God that has the potential to appeal to secular readers as well." --School Library Journal

While meant for children, Mother God is the book that many mothers need: a reminder that in the midst of the chaos that is feeding, clothing, teaching, and caring for children, there is God. For anyone who reads it, this book is a beautiful and powerful reflection on who God is and how we are all reflections of the divine. --U.S. Catholic

"Mother God is a delightfully powerful book. Teresa Kim Pecinovsky's rhyming prose is rich and full of life, and Khoa Le's illustrations are page after page of magic and wonderment. Mother God is a quiet anthem, one that I can't wait to read to my kids." --Matthew Paul Turner, New York Times bestselling coauthor of What Is God Like? and author of When God Made You

"Mother God is a powerful and beautiful book with magic in its lyricism, its imagery, its faith." ---Qian Julie Wang, New York Times Bestselling Author of Beautiful Country

"This wonderful work is steeped in scripture and brings images from its pages vividly to life through the wonderful illustrations of Khoa Le, while affirming a God who is known by many names and seen in every face in simple, clear language." --Rev. Wil Gafney, PhD, The Right Rev. Sam B. Hulsey Professor of Hebrew Bible, Brite Divinity School

"Our children need to grow up with many images for God so their faith is expansive and inclusive. With rhyming and colorful illustrations, Mother God invites a child to see the many ways God can be imaged as a woman." --Rev. Dr. Elizabeth F. Caldwell, professor emerita, McCormick Theological Seminary

"Mother God is a very needed attempt to translate this feminist theology into the language and imagination of a children's book." --Dr. Elisabeth Schüssler Fiorenza, Krister Stendahl Professor, Harvard Divinity School

"If you are looking for scriptural ways to speak of God as mother--strong, tender, nurturing, fierce, feeding, wise--with kids or even your own self, this is a book to add to your shelf and your imagination. It is exquisite." --Sarah Bessey, author of Jesus Feminist (2013); Out of Sorts: Making Peace with an Evolving Faith (2015); and Miracles and Other Reasonable Things (2019).
