Chasing God’s Glory
A unique and delightful children’s book about how God’s glory can be found all around us every day, from the award-winning author of Cora Cooks Pancit.
“Mama, what exactly is glory?”
When Zayla asks her mom to describe God’s glory, Mama knows it’s time for an adventure! Together, Mama and Zayla discover how sunrises and dancing, daffodils and green peppers, kind words and loving hugs—and more!—are all reminders of God’s glory.
Award-winning author Dorina Lazo Gilmore-Young’s rich multicultural story and Alyssa De Asis’s vibrant artwork make Chasing God’s Glory a unique invitation to notice and celebrate the radiance of God’s light and love as you and your family become “glory chasers.”

Dorina started writing creative stories in first grade with the encouragement of her teacher Mrs. Kosinki. Her first story was about two unicorns who fell in love and traveled the world together. (And that’s before unicorns were trendy!) Today she writes and publishes stories for kids of all ages, including her award-winning book, Cora Cooks Pancit. Dorina is also a former journalist, running coach, podcaster, and spoken word artist. She loves sharing words at schools and cooking with kids in classrooms. Dorina lives in Central California with her hubby Shawn and three daughters. They love to explore new places, try food from different cultures, and chase God’s glory together.
