Sermonettes from Sebastian

Website banner


How much does God care about you? Does He know you personally and intimately? Does He care about your struggles? What if I told you that God even cares for your pets and knows them by name? Would you have more faith to believe in God’s love and care for you if you knew that He even loves and cares about your dog? 

After our family dog, Sebastian, experienced God’s divine deliverance, out of profound gratitude he dedicated his life to encouraging others to find a deeper relationship with God through sharing his life lessons on relationship with “the Master” (with a little help getting his lessons in book form).     


This book was birthed in the summer of 2005, when my husband and I hosted Sebastian while my parents were overseas. He was a blessing from the Lord, bringing joy and laughter during what was otherwise a very challenging season for us. Through our experiences with Sebastian in those months, God spoke to us often, showing us parallels that sweetly and humorously illustrated His love for us and our relationship with Him. The book is a 112-page coffee table or gift book with Sebastian’s advice divided into ten chapters on topics such as walking with The Master, loyalty, storms, and trust. Each piece of Sebastian’s advice is accompanied by a full-color illustration and a supporting scripture. My prayer is that the lessons God demonstrated through our relationship with Sebastian will bless and encourage you in your relationship with THE MASTER as well, and that you will know with absolute certainty that if God loves and cares individually for every animal, He loves and cares for you EVEN MORE!

    A beautiful story for the whole family to read together, and a wonderful way to impart words of love and wisdom from the Word of God. The pictures are lovely, the text easy to read, the whole book is laid out well to sit and read together. ~ Nana

    My girls have been loving your book– and so have I! We love sitting down to read a little sermonette, and the girls have fallen in love with Sebastian. Thank you so much. ~ Racheal

    I bought your book today and you signed it to our grandson. Can I just tell you that I have fallen in LOVE with your book??? Oh my goodness – I am sitting in my sewing room reading it and CRYING. I cannot wait to order more books for friends of ours. Thank you so much for writing this!!! I highly recommend this book!! I look forward to any future writing Laura does. God Bless! ~ Kimmie

    I met Laura and her husband this weekend at a craft fair. The book cover caught my eyes because my first dog was named Sebastian.
    I read through this wonderful book last night. It had been a very, very rough weekend and I needed encouragement. Exactly what I got from every page! I did let my own Sebastian talk to me. Thank you for all of your efforts to publish this book.

    Charming parables for adults and kids! You can learn from Elizabeth’s pictures alone: trust and love shine right through her illustrations. But Laura’s short musings plus accompanying biblical passages clarify the most important truths for anyone trying to follow Jesus the way an adored pet accompanies his or her master. The book is charming and thought provoking. I’ve made sure everyone in my family owns a copy.

    Having known Sebastian, I truly enjoyed reading this book. We all know the personalities of our own pets and talk about how we even learn from them. Laura did a great job at translating her experiences with Sebastian to scriptures and godly wisdom in a way we could all relate. Highly recommend for the whole family.

  7. Stephen says:

    This is such a great book for a coffee table or side table in the living room or to read to your children at night. Children and adults alike can easily find something they can relate to and learn Biblical principles from. I love the idea seeing God in the stories about a dog and their owner.

  8. Leesa says:

    I received a copy of this book as a gift for my grand children. They just love it. It is so very entertaining and very well done. Blessing to Laura for being such a wonderful author and story teller!!!!

    I have an eight year old son and two daughters, six and four. We don’t own any pets, but we LOVE this delightful little book. The author successfully manages to take her observations of a dog in relationship to its master and accessibly show how this mirrors the Christian’s process and path to a mature relationship with Jesus! Each page has one facet of this relationship, an adorable illustration and the SCRIPTURE being reinforced. What a wonderful way to illustrate for kids AND adults what the Scripture teaches us about walking with Jesus Christ!!

    This is an excellent gift to families with children (pets or no pets) or for anyone who owns a pet or loves animals!

    Wanted you to know that I read a chapter of your book to my Kindergarten Bible class every Sunday. They love Sebastian and learning about his master and our Master, too. ~ Paula Harrington

    I received the three books I ordered! I read my copy during my prayer and study time this morning. I got chills, smiled many times and got tearful a few times. Happy tears, of course! It’s lovely and amazing! Thanks for everything!! And I do plan to buy at least two more books…Hopefully very soon! I can think of so many people that will be blessed by it! Love you! ~ Callie Blackard Dowlen

    OK – I was told that the books were really sweet, but I did not appreciate just how great they were until I started to read my own copy. Would you drop off 3 more books? I sent my 2 copies off as Mother’s Day gifts, and now have others who will also love a copy. Please tell Laura how much I appreciate what she did! Her work will bless many lives. ~Cheri Pierson Yecke, Ph.D.

    Alice brought the advance copy to our Christmas Care Group party, and some of us read it. My nearly 97 year old Mother read it, and she told us to be sure and watch for when it was published, because she wanted a copy for each of the four grandchildren…and DON’T FORGET. Mama slipped into the arms of Jesus on March 21…a few weeks before the the book came out, but we have a copy for each of the grandchildren. ~ Deanna Mills Brooks
