Firebird is a bright orange baby oriole who just loves the sunshine. But whenever a storm blows in, he frets and asks Mama why God allows the rain to take the sun away. When Firebird is finally old enough, his mother gently instructs him to fly up through the thunder and lightning to see what’s on the other side.
It’s a rough flight, and just when he’s about to give up, Firebird rises above the storm to discover the sun shining where it always had been. God never lets the storm take the sun away. With that truth in his heart, Firebird continues to bask in the sunshine, but just as important, he learns to rejoice in the rain.
Firebird is a children’s book (now available here in board book format) that parallels the life of Samantha Crawford, a storybook artist in the inspiring film Unconditional who has lost sight of God’s love.
Brent McCorkle wrote and directed the film Unconditional. His previous movie, The Rift, a metaphoric story about adoption, was a winner in The Doorpost Film Project 2009. Brent and his wife have five children. Amy Parker has written more than twenty books for children, teens, and adults including the best-selling A Night Night Prayer and three Mom’s Choice Awards winners. Amy and her husband have two children.
