Milo Finds His Best Friend

This book is a must for parents to introduce God to their children and more importantly show children that they can openly communicate to God and start a relationship with Him.

Milo and the Green Wagon

Milo and the Green Wagon is an endearing tale based on a true story drawn from the writer's childhood. Similar to an experience Lisa shared as a youngster with her brother David, Milo and his friends find an old, discarded green wagon and decide to fix it up and use it to collect food and clothing for those who need them. Lisa's heartwarming story teaches children about generosity, selflessness and, most importantly, about love and respect for all people, no matter what their stature in life. As you read through Milo's journey with your child, he or she will learn what it means to donate and will realize the good that comes from a mission such as Milo's, a mission he calls: ACT - Action Changes Things. Umina's clever words and expressions will entice you right up until the very end when Milo and his friends' compassion is rewarded with a surprise visitor at Sunday service; a visitor that makes all of their acts of kindness well worth the effort.

Milo Moments

Milo Moments makes kids giggle by tickling their inquisitive natures and by light-heartedly bringing religion into everyday life in simple terms they can understand. The book shows how faith and a binding relationship with God can influence and guide even the simplest of situations and actions.

You Are My Bon Bon

This is a heartfelt and moving story about the personal feelings between you and those you care about and love. A perfect gift to show a loved one you are thinking about them. The book’s beautiful illustrations capture touching memories and cause one to reflect on all the special moments in life and smile.
