Children of God

The child-like trust in God's guidance and care is not childish or immature. It is a conscious choice that God himself is calling us to make. But why do we often think of God as our last resort?

CHILDREN OF GOD  is a touching true story about faith and fear, letting go and trust — and God's amazing, detailed provision in the middle of impossible situations. The events primarily took place in Ontario, Canada, where the Sarentos used to live along with their three little children.

Through their life story, Markku and Johanna Sarento teach about the faithfulness and love of God with a fresh and inspiring touch. The book offers new perspectives on many of the most essential views of the Christian faith.


"Thank you for your beautiful and touching book! To me it was a call to trust. It was like one of those thriller stories in the Bible, and the teaching blended right in. My own desire to lead this kind of life of God's children was strengthened."

"Besides the Bible, I have not read more than three or four books in my life. Your book was unputdownable."

"As I opened the book and was about to start reading, the love of God came upon me and surrounded me like a tent."

"I was so glued to my seat and wanted to keep on reading that I forgot to make the dinner!"

"The power of the Holy Spirit touched me and I felt God's love."

"Never before had I understood the grace of God and what it means to live as His child."

"All that the Church and its members need for the manifestation of the mighty power of God in the world, is the return to our true place, the place that belongs to us, both in creation and redemption, the place of absolute and unceasing dependence upon God."

– Andrew Murray, 1894
