Goodbye to Goodbyes, by Lauren Chandler   

There is a day coming when we will say goodbye to saying goodbyes forever.

Do you believe that?

Enjoy the sad...and happy...and sad again...and (in the end) very happy story of what happened when Jesus visited his friends Mary, Martha, and Lazarus and changed everything.  

“Goodbye to Goodbyes gives our kids a big, colorful view of the God we serve and His defeat of sin and death forever!”

Jennie Allen, Author of Nothing to Prove; Founder of IF:Gathering


We all have to say goodbye sometimes.

Some of them are short goodbyes.

Some are long.

Some seem like forever.

“Lauren took one of my favorite stories in the Bible and brought it to life for us.”

Jamie Ivey, Author of If You Only Knew; Host of The Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey


Jesus knows it is sad to say goodbye.

So Jesus came to end goodbyes.

“Parents, read this book to your kids over and over again... so that when it comes time for them (and you) to say goodbye, they (and you) will know it is only temporary.”

Scott Sauls, Senior Pastor, Christ Presbyterian Church; author, Befriend

One day, after we die, Jesus and his friends will say goodbye to goodbyes — forever.

“This book is a sweet gift to parents - for our children and for our own souls.”

Goodbye to Goodbyes
By Lauren Chandler

Jesus knew how scary it is when someone gets really sick. He knew how sad it is when someone dies. Jesus cried when his friend, Lazarus, died. But he did something at his friend’s tomb that changed everything. He showed that he came to give his friends life after death.

In this vivid, moving and exciting retelling of the story of Lazarus, Lauren Chandler helps children understand that Jesus came to say goodbye to goodbyes—forever. Children will see that because Jesus rose from death, he has power over it and all who believe in him will also rise, just as Lazarus did.
