“I thought maybe God didn’t hear me, so I decided to write him a letter.”
In his search for a special compass, a young boy writes a letter to God and reveals, to himself and others, the miracle of God’s hand in every situation. This book is inspired by the true story of Tyler, whose life is told in the major motion picture Letters to God. Patrick and Heather Doughtie, authors and parents of the real-life Tyler, share the endearing story of their son’s inspiring and contagious faith.
