Bibles for Babies

Our mission is for every newborn, young child, and their families to be exposed to God’s truth in their home. By giving each family of a young child a children’s bible they will hear the word of God and know that Jesus loves them. We feel blessed that the Lord chose us to be a part of this mission and feel honored to keep Calvin’s name alive in this way. If you feel called to help us carry out this mission we would truly appreciate it!

1 Samuel 1:27-28

I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him. So now I give him to the Lord. For his whole life he will be given over to the Lord. And he worshiped the Lord there.


Our Story

On February 24, 2016 our son Calvin was unexpectedly born into Heaven at birth. The cause was Meconium Aspiration. My husband and I, and our families, have tried to make sense of why this would happen. It was the most devastating time of our lives. God gave us peace and numbness in those days just to survive and we knew we had to trust His plan. We needed to turn this tragedy into a triumph and the only way for that to happen was to advance the Kingdom of God. We have been given so much love and support through our time of grief, that we want to spread that same love and kindness in Calvin’s honor. Every child is a blessing from God and Bibles for Babies was laid on our hearts. Calvin’s purpose was much too big for this world and we are just carrying out the work of our “Tiny Mighty Missionary.”

Jeremiah 1:5

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”

How can I help?


Prayers for our hearts to be open and eager to glorify God, man power for this to spread as deep and wide as it can go, and the funds to do so.


Any amount of donations will help as they will be used to purchase the bibles for the children. Your generous contribution will put the word of God in a child’s life.


Please help us spread the word of this mission so that we may reach as many families as possible.

Where are we giving out the bibles?

Wherever God leads us to. We have given bibles to resource centers, pregnancy centers, food banks, preschools, and churches. We have also been able to partner with 2 local hospitals that are offering each family of a newborn one of the children’s bibles to take home with them. We are very excited about connecting with the hospitals and hope to be established with even more hospitals in the future! As of October 2019 we have given away 4,000 bibles!

Can I get bibles for my area?

Yes! We would love for you to help us reach as many children as possible by putting the bibles in children’s homes in any area. If you would like bibles passed out in your area, you may fundraise if you feel called to do so, and we would give you the bibles to hand out where you'd like.

My husband and I, and our families, would like to thank everyone who has helped us with this mission. Thank you to all who have prayed, donated, helped with fundraisers, and have spread the word of our ministry! We feel so grateful that God called us to this ministry to keep our son's memory alive, and I am so thankful to have a great support team that is making it happen.
