"Deep in his heart, Timothy believed everything that had just happened was some sort of miracle and that picking up the disk, simply to be obedient to his grandma, was part of a higher purpose. He wasn’t sure what that purpose was, but what he did know was that he couldn’t wait to tell his mom.” Can God use the little things in our lives—our little acts of obedience—to serve a higher purpose? Can He do the same with “little people” who trust Him, too? Author and Pastor Brad Riley believes He can. As he shares with us, “The heritage of responding to the love of God was demonstrated to me by godly grandparents and parents and is an eternal value that all of us can pass to each succeeding generation.”

In 1997, Pastor Brad Riley and his wife, Beth, launched Faith Chapel Church in O'Fallon, Missouri, where they still serve with their two daughters, Emma and Sophia. Brad and Beth’s life slogan, “One moment in the Presence of God can change everything,” represents their deepest desire—to help children and adults connect with the One who truly loves them. Brad has also served on the Board of Regents for North Central University since 2009.Review:
"Timothy is an adorable character with whom children will immediately identify. This story explores a parable that most children's Bible curricula fail to teach. I highly recommend this book for your Sunday school classroom, homeschool, and children's church."
--Kristin Skebo, Director of Faith Academy and National Coordinator of Care Ministries International
"I felt like a child, clapping my hands with delight at the story of a little fish with a very big tale. This is a "Max Lucado" type of story for children that will absolutely delight parent and child alike."
--Dr. M. Ray Brewer, Superintendent for Northern Missouri AG District
"What a story, and what power in a story! Brad Riley's tale of the little fish grabs the heart, informs the head, and energizes people to action for the cause of Christ--and with such simplicity."
--Dr. Gordon L. Anderson, President of North Central University
"The limitless, creative imagination of Brad Riley has amazed us again. His story of Timothy the fish teaches life principles for children that will shape them for their future. This is a must-have book for every child, and hopefully the first of more to come."
--Gary Heiney, Missionary and Founder of Samuel's House in Venezuela
"Timothy: A Little Fish with a Big Purpose is an entertaining story with a moral we can all stand to be reminded of. My children might be too big now to curl up in my lap for a bedtime story, but that hasn't stopped me from sharing this delightful tale with them!"
--Heather Huffman, bestselling author of Throwaway, Jailbird, and Ties That Bind.
"Put yourself and your children in the hands of the Master. You, too, may feel like a fish out of water, but the brave choice of obedience always takes you out of your comfort zone. Give this book to the kids in your life. They will be in the right place to change the world."
--Dave Pafford, Youth and Christian Education Director for Northern Missouri AG District
