Dig For Your Diamond is (forgive the pun) a gem of a picture book. Caroline Mosey offers a distinctive metaphor that reminds us all that God is always with us and in us. Similar to Matthew Paul Turner's picture books, in which he affirms God's deep love for all people, Dig For Your Diamond also emphasizes that while we have the diamond of God's presence in each of us, we cannot keep this gem for ourselves yourself, but to share with others. Dig For Your Diamond is illustrated with elegant, colorful paintings by Nicole Krajewski and is a beautifully designed presentation of the good news of God's healing and restoration work in us and in creation. Although we are constantly surrounded by the bad news of human brokenness, there is a deeper story going on in the world, a story of hope and healing. Dig For Your Diamond gives children a taste of this deeper story and leads them to further curiosity not only about the story, but also about God's exquisite presence in them. Read this book with your children, but take it to heart. Your message of hope is one we all need to hear.
