Faith and Science Blended in New Kids’ Book

Louie’s first-ever children’s book, Indescribable: 100 Devotions About God & Science, showcases God and science. “It is important for us to explore and learn about everything God has made. The more we learn about what He created, the more we learn about Him,” shares Louie. There are 100 devotions in the book that reveal God’s creativity with: (1) Space, Galaxies, Planets, and Stars; (2) Earth, Geology, Oceans, and Weather; (3) Animals—from Hummingbirds to Dinosaurs; and (4) Our Minds, Bodies, and Imaginations.

The book is based on Louie’s popular messages “Indescribable” and “How Great Is Our God.” He encourages kids to grow in their faith and with the Creator Himself. “The designer Himself knows us by name. He loves us. He cares for us and to know that is to truly know a joy that is indescribable,” shares Louie. Each devotion reveals the majesty of creation with scientific findings, photography, and original illustrations. A “Be Amazed” section is featured with each devotion that includes fascinating facts, hands-on activities, and a closing prayer. Some of the devotions he features in the book include:

  • “When Stars Die” – Louie talks about how stars are born and how they also die. “We usually think of dying as an ugly thing, but when a star dies, it is actually quite beautiful,” shares Louie. When Jesus died on the cross the suffering would have been horrible to see, but it was also beautiful because of the reason He died.
  • “A Hairy Situation” – In this devotion, Louie talks about how hair is everywhere on your head and on your skin. The average person has 100,000 follicles on his head and more than 5 million on the entire body. God knows each and every hair in each and every follicle. So, when you are going through a hard time remember God has not forgotten you. He knows every hair on your head and how to take care of you.
  • “See the Seahorse” – The seahorse is a tiny fish that lives in the ocean. This unusual creature often swims with another seahorse and they link their tails to stay together. The seahorse is not a good swimmer so it uses its tail to anchor itself to hold on to a piece of sea grass or coral. God has given this creature everything it needs to get food, have someone to swim through life with, and something to hold on to. God takes care of you, too. He provides you with food and shelter. Sometimes like the seahorse you may have to hold on and wait for God to deliver His promises.

Passion City Church began with a stirring in the hearts of Louie and Shelley Giglio for the local church. Born out of the Passion Movement (a decades-old movement among the collegiate generation), they sought to plant a local community of faith impacted and informed by the DNA of Passion. With a small team of people, that vision took flight in 2008, as small gatherings began in homes throughout Atlanta. The desire was to foster a family of believers connected by a common faith, on a mission in the city and in the world to amplify the name of Jesus. The first gathering was held on February 15, 2009, in Atlanta at The Tabernacle. From there, God faithfully provided various locations all over the city of Atlanta, until their first permanent gathering site at 515 Garson Drive.

Louie and Shelly lead the teams at Passion City Church, sixsteprecords, and the Passion Global Institute. Louie is the Visionary Architect and Director of the Passion Movement, comprised of Passion Conferences, Passion City Church, Passion Publishing and sixstepsrecords, and the founder of Passion Global Institute. Shelley is the Chief Strategist, Director of Label Operations and Artist Management for sixstepsrecords, co-founder of the Passion Movement, and leads The GROVE, a gathering for the girls of Atlanta.

Louie and Shelley together founded Passion Conferences in 1997, uniting college-aged people in events around the globe. In January, Passion 2017 gathered more than 55,000 students in Atlanta’s Georgia Dome in one of the largest collegiate gatherings in history. Some of the speakers included includedChristine Caine, Beth Moore, John Piper, and Levi Lusko. Worship was led by Passion Band, Chris Tomlin, Crowder, Matt Redman, Christy Nockels and Hillsong UNITED. The students participated in an endeavor to "Make History Together" by coming together to sponsor more than 7,000 children through Compassion International, fulfilling all sponsorships in El Salvador, Rwanda, Tanzania and Indonesia as well as hundreds in Bolivia.
