I was pleased to be interviewed by the editor of the Storypath blog, Ann Knox. This is a blog that is similar to mine and comes out of Union Presbyterian Seminary. You’ll find Christian books, some children’s chapter books, and books that they link to the liturgical year. It’s so nice to get crossover exposure! Here’s the link to check out the interview and meanwhile check out their informative blog: http://storypath.upsem.edu/anna-hibiscus-song-and-an-interview-with-hanna-schock-of-picture-book-theology/

A friend of mine, Kristen Vincent, is the author of a popular spiritual book for adults: A Bead and a Prayer: A Beginner’s Guide to Protestant Prayer Beads. Here’s a link to Kristen’s Amazon page where you can read about her 2nd and 3rd books: https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=kristen+vincent. Kristen’s blog, Prayerworks Studio, encourages and supports her ministry. I was delighted when Kristen highlighted Picture Book Theology on her blog.

A few weeks later, Kristen allowed me to be her first guest blogger where I offered another picture book and explained how it could be incorporated into an adult prayer bead practice. That book was Knots on a Counting Rope by Bill Martin, Jr. Here’s the link to that guest post: http://abeadnaprayer.com/2014/08/14/guest-post-hanna-schock-on-childrens-books-and-prayer-beads/.

I was interviewed for the Discipleship Blog of the North Alabama Conference of the United Methodist Church. This interview gives a variety of applications for picture books in church ministry, including some interesting options for adults. Here's that link: http://www.umcna.org/postdetail/678788

I’ve been featured on the CEF blog. Christians Engaged in Faith Formation (CEF) is a United Methodist organization for laity and clergy. I am a member and attend their bi-annual professional development conferences. The first post is a general description of PBT: http://cefumc.org/blog/4241689.

Next I offered a list of secular picture books for Advent: http://cefumc.org/blog/4400116.

Soon there will be an eBook published by CEF and written by me entitled: Finding God’s Desires for Justice in Secular Picture Books. This eBook will be available to CEF members.
