Ishnabobber Books is a series of Christian children’s picture books that help grow faith from a young age!   New testament based, the Ishnabobber Books books are written as parables and are designed for children ages 3 through 8 and so the early reader can enjoy reading them own their own.  A bible verse wraps each page of the story to encourage bible reading and memorization.  Additional verses and reflection questions are given to encourage parent/child interaction regarding the theme of the story.  There is even a message for the parent for their own faith reflection.
Hi, I’m Ishnabobber!  I’m a lighthouse and I want to be the best I can be.  After much searching I eventually find out Jesus is the answer but I don’t know anything about him.  Come along with me on my journey to discovering who Jesus is, what He did and how I evenutally let Him into my heart.  It is my hope and prayer that those who read my story will discover the same thing I did:

1.) God is my creator and He loves me! 2.) Jesus is my Savior and my friend!  3.) The Holy Spirit lives inside me and guides me through life!

John 8:12 says… “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”   Jesus spoke these words and so it was believed  a lighthouse would be the perfect character to lead children (and their parents) on a journey of faith.  I got my name from a  twelve year old little girl.  Eight years ago, her mom said… “The word, Ishnabobber, will someday be the name of something special.”  Little did anyone know it would be me.


I’m Susan Anderson,  author of Ishnabober Books and founder of His Perfect Light Ministries as well as mother of five, grandmother of three and wife to an amazing husband.  Over the years, I have spent most of my time serving children in coaching, education or ministry.  God clearly gifted me with a heart and compassion for kids.  This love compounded with my life experiences, growing faith and God’s persistent nudging has inspired me to want to help others grow their faith.

Several years ago I came to realize that many Christians (myself once included) don’t understand the ”personal relationship” and “dwelling within” side of their faith.  They completely understand God as Creator and Jesus as Savior but missed out on relationship.

I desire to touch the lives of children and those reading the Ishnabobber Books by taking them on my own faith journey through the fun-loving character named Ishnabobber .  In addition, for every Ishnabobber  book puchased, a book will be given to an orphan or child in need. 

Simply put… I love God with all my heart, mind and soul and seek to inspire others to share in the joy I’ve come to know as Jesus as well as to give to those in need!


And I am Traci Allison, illustrator for Ishnabobber Books.  I enjoy exploring various art mediums and techniques.  I earned my BFA in Graphic Design from Georgia State University.  After leaving the corporate world to raise a family, I became a self-employed artist.  I am also an educator and church volunteer.  I met Susan years ago for a brief period of time.  It’s amazing how God works… several years later, because she remembered I was a woman of faith and an artist, she approched me about her vision.  I jumped on board with no hesitation.  It’s been an amazing journey so far to see how God can use two regular mom’s to further His kingdom.  I feel so blessed to be part of this project!
