New Book Release "Spiritual Insights from Classic Literature: The Wizard of Oz"

As a writer I am always on the lookout for new ideas. Last summer an idea came to me while sitting in church. Our pastor was preaching on the heart. For one of his examples he read from The Wizard of Oz and the backstory of the Tin Man. That was when a light bulb came on in my head.

I love reading the classics. There's something about them that is different from today's writing. As a homeschooling mom for 20 years, I was always looking for things I could incorporate into school, but also looking to double up as there were only so many hours in the day. I wish I had thought of this when my kids were still in school. Oh well! It's here for your kids.

I am starting a new series of books. These are devotional books that go along with classic literature. After reading one chapter of the classic, you would then read one chapter of my book, which is a short devotion.  Reading through classic literature with new eyes, I've discovered there are so many lessons learned, or not, by the characters that we can bring into real life discussion with our kids.

I have many books on the horizon with this series, and I can't wait to see where it goes. The first book is Spiritual Insights from The Wizard of Oz. Coming out in February is Spiritual Insights from Charlotte's Web and then in April I'm looking to release Spiritual Insights from Little Women.  After that the sky's the limit as to what I choose. If you have any favorite classics that you would like to see a devotional companion to, please leave a message in the comments. I'll do my best to accommodate you. There's just so many choices, and I want to read them all!!!
