Roger Hutchison


"There is prayerful poetry woven through Houston author/artist Roger Hutchison’s work, a gentle reverence in his tone and posture toward the heartbroken. It’s Hutchison’s ambition to use art, color and poetic language to communicate love and promote healing in today’s hurting world. Hutchison is poised to pilgrim alongside the suffering, a desire unmistakably reflected in his words and art."

- Kathryn Streeter, Houston Family Magazine, May 2018

The Very Best Day: The Way of Love for Children introduces the practices of a Jesus-centered life to children (and those young at heart) through accessible language, age-appropriate themes, and vibrant artwork.

The Way of Love is an intentional commitment to a set of practices. It's a commitment to follow Jesus: Turn, Learn, Pray, Worship, Bless, Go, and Rest.


“Hutchison takes a moving piece of personal artwork and breaks it down into pieces to serve as the lenses through which to view various biblical stories of Jesus. But he doesn’t stop there, as we also find reflections both inspiring and challenging on our own world and our own situations.” - from the Foreword by The Most Reverend Michael Bruce Curry, XXVII Presiding Bishop and Primate of the Episcopal Church

The text and illustrations of this lushly colored picture book guide the reader through different emotions and reactions related to grieving, including shock, tears, anger, and hope. My Favorite Color is Blue. Sometimes. is a children's picture book by design, but accessible to people of all ages. 

Following the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT, author Roger Hutchison had the privilege of painting with children who had witnessed this tragic event. The experience affected him profoundly and convinced him of a vocation to serve those who grieve with his writing and art.
