Each day the sun shines, even when you can't see it. Sunlight is constant and unchanging in our world. What if God's love were like the sun? What if one day you realized nothing could take God's love away?
Firebird is a bright orange baby oriole who loves the sunshine. Whenever a storm blows in, he worries and asks Mama why God allows the rain to take the sun away. When Firebird is finally old enough, his mother teaches him to fly up through the thunder and lightning to see what is on the other side.
It's a challenging flight, and just when he feels like giving up, Firebird soars above the storm to see the sun shining where it always was. God doesn't let the storm take the sun away. When he finally realizes how constant the sunshine is, Firebird continues to soak in the sunshine, and more importantly, rejoice in the rain.
Firebird is a children's book that connects the life of Samantha Crawford, a storybook artist featured in the film Unconditional, who lost sight of God's love.
