Author Jo Clem sets a beneficial example for parents with delightful color book.
LIGHTNING RELEASES: MAITLAND, FL (12/19/2013) -Within the pages of Jo Clem’s new book, Tell Me Who’s Wonderful, (hardcover, 9781628712605;) readers will discover an enjoyable story surrounding a special little girl and her family. The characters in the book take part in a traditional question-and-answer game, which provides an illustration for each child to know that he or she is wonderful in God’s eyes. The author references Psalms 139, in which the psalmist proclaims, “You knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made…”
“The greatest gift a parent can give a child is the gift of self-esteem,” states the author. “[This book] is a message [that] our world desperately longs for and needs to hear and, as simple as the concept is, it can and will change lives for the better both for the one who questions and the one who answers.”
Of her expertise, the author expresses: “In more than three decades as a teacher, writer and parent, I have seen the joys and challenges of parenting and relationships. Parenting is the most important job we ever do. Few of us are ‘taught’ how to be parents. We just follow the model we experienced. The problem is that we cannot give something we may have never personally received. If we do not know and believe and live based on a keen awareness of both our divinity and our purpose, because a model of that was not provided to us, we must go right back to the beginning and listen to the Heavenly Father. He tells us how wonderful we are. Don’t take my word for it; this message is from Him.”
