“More than excellent! The photography brings life and heart-stirring emotion to the well-written text. It’s a book you will read over and over again.”

I was thrilled when Julie invited me to work on this project. When we discussed it in the early stages, Julie expressed her deep love for her children , the things she hoped and  dreamed for them, and how her strongest desire was to see them all walking with the Lord. It impacted me. She knew exactly what she wanted to express in each letter and it was an absolute delight to put those raw feelings into words. I hope Unexpected Love impacts you the way it did me.

~ Stacey Weeks

Unexpected Love is a collaboration of breathtaking images and heartfelt letters from parent to child grounded in the Word of God. Julie Johnson and Stacey Weeks combine their unique gifts and talents to celebrate the unexpected love we experience for our children while touching on the trials and tribulations that come with raising them in a flawed world.

Unexpected Love will encourage you, comfort you, and perhaps give voice to those things you want to say but cannot find the words to express. More importantly, it will, Lord willing, deepen your understanding of God’s unconditional love and confirm in your heart that unlike parental love, God’s love is flawless. Only God loves perfectly all the time—not because we are loveable, but because that is who he is. Perfect love.
