Inspired by the true story of Tyler, whose life is depicted in the major motion picture Letters to God, this endearing children's picture book builds on the film's popularity about Tyler's uplifting and contagious faith.
Tyler's real-life parents, authors Patrick and Heather Doughtie, weave the sweet and simple tale in which the little boy loses his special toy, a compass, and writes a heartfelt letter to God, seeking the Lord's help in finding it. Along his journey to the mailbox, Tyler encounters grownups who have needs--from lost cats to lost jobs--that he includes in his letter. Complete with whimsical, full-color illustrations, the story reveals the miracle of God's hand in every situation. It provides an entertaining and instructional lesson to children from ages four to seven.
Included in the back of the book is an envelope with a piece of stationery, inviting the readers to write their own letter to God.
Before focusing his creative energies on fiction, Patrick Doughtie honed his artistic skills as a newspaperman, recording artist, and screenwriter. He was one of the youngest newspaper general managers in California when he and one of his four brothers decided to move to Nashville to pursue a music career. In 1996, after his son Tyler was born, Patrick left the late nights and long trips of the music world to start a construction business in Nashville. After his son’s death in 2005, he began his career as a screenwriter. Patrick has written five screenplays and two short-subject scripts in a variety of genres: comedy, drama, thriller, action, and a children’s story.
