A desire to bring glory to God and how he nurtures faith motivated Jen Ashcraft, a 1998 graduate of Cedarville University, to write the children’s book “Please Turn on the Light.” The story is about a fearful young girl who learns that God cares enough to chase away her fears with his always-on, internal ‘Night-Light’ that is more powerful than the darkness around her.
