Word & Wonder exists to help families grow in the truth of God’s word and the wonder of his love by providing theologically-rich resources for inspiration, education, and transformation.

our vision

We founded Word & Wonder because we believe that wonder-fueled, theologically-rich faith formation matters to people of all ages. 

At its core, Word & Wonder is about providing resources to families and churches that bring together knowledge of God and awe of God for holistic faith formation.

We believe the church needs children, and children need the church for vibrant life-with-God-in-Jesus.  

meet our team

Britta and Lindsey founded Word & Wonder Creative in 2021, after working together for three years on The Gospel Story Hymnal.

Britta k. Wallbaum

Executive Director

Britta lives in Aurora, IL with her husband and four kids. She’s a mostly-stay-at-home mom, who also works part time as an architect at Wheaton College and volunteers as a worship leader at her church. She always has a new project in the works, from remodeling her home, to learning to watercolor, to compiling and illustrating The Gospel Story Hymnal!

Britta was born with Amniotic Band Syndrome (short fingers and toes) and a cleft palate and lip, but has always loved seeing how God uses our weaknesses to show his glory and strength, for it is in using her hands (drawing, designing, playing piano) and her voice (singing) that she has found the most joy in serving Him.
