The Girl God Trilogy

A magically illustrated children's book celebrating the Divine Feminine. This special edition trilogy includes the first three books in The Girl God series, including revised versions of The Girl God, Mother Earth and Tell Me Why.

Praise for The Girl God Trilogy

"The Girl God: a picture book to show girls that god can be a girl, god is inside, god is an idea, a positive action or good deed, god is open to creative interpretation and should be about everyone. A great book to dispel the myth that god is male with wonderful illustrations by Elisabeth Slettnes. Empowerment for our girl children." –a girl's guide to taking over the world

"A deceptively simple story about a whimsical young girl named Helani Claire, who would make Emily Dickinson smile as she deconstructs the patriarchal god of her father with the bluntness of a child. Akin to: If Kate Chopin was still alive, writing (and self-publishing) children's books. Elisabeth Slettnes' colorful paintings are feasts for the spirit, as are the addition of selected quotes and poems. Wisdom abounds."
Philadelphia Weekly

“This is a delightfully rich book that can spark conversation and reflection on many levels –and one worth returning to again and again.” –David Weiss, author of When God Was a Little Girl

“This book is a must for our daughters.” –Christy Turlington

Mother Earth is a book for the ages, one that parents should read to their children for generations—for its message of healing is one we must take to heart.” –Elizabeth Hall Magill, author of Defining Sexism

“The story form of the message of environmental awareness brings it home in a personalway. The illustrations by Elisabeth Slettnes are a big part of the appeal, as are the quotations.I highly recommend Mother Earth.” –Marilyn McFarlane, author of Sacred Stories: Wisdom from World Religions

“Trista and Elisabeth have created another gorgeous illustrated story to impart wise, holistic values...this time about our environment, and done elegantly in metaphor and narrative. If only every child received this book from her or his mother or father, how differently we might treat Mother Earth—with gratitude, respect and awe.” –Amy Logan, author of The Seven Perfumes of Sacrifice

“Another gem from Trista Hendren and Elisabeth Slettnes. A beautiful and important message to all children, told here in the re-telling and re-writing of the Creation story, to Joey, by his mother. With Slettnes’ stunning artwork and inspirational quotes from other writers, it takes its place alongside The Girl God and Mother Earth as a future classic.” –Ruth Calder Murphy, author of Spirit Song

“Trista Hendren has done it again. Incorporating beautiful pictures, meaningful quotes, and a story line that resonates she has created a wonderful book that will, hopefully, inspire hugely needed conversations between every boy, girl, man, and woman throughout the world.” –Peter Wilkes, author of A Woman Called God
