A Heartbroken Father: 10-year-old Gracie& the Save a Soul Prayer Team (A Fruit of the Spirit Book Book 1)
I’m Gracie and this is my story. I live in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley with my mama Bernice, and Miss Millie, the renter who lives with us. I sure wish she were my grandma, she’s that sweet! But then, I find out in this here book that she’s an honest a goodness angel! Here in Pleasant Hill, we talk a tad different saying things like ya’ll, yes’m, and yes siree. Our words spoke with love warm my heart because everyone cares about their neighbor and what’s going on with one matters to all.
In this first Fruit of the Spirit book, I want to join my mama’s Save a Soul Prayer Team to thank God for all the people who came around us when my firefighter daddy died saving the town from a huge brush fire. Fact is, I’ve a list of wants, like having a sister, helping my sorrowful friends daddy figure out where his family has gone and…well…stuff like that. But I heard tell that God can do what I can’t.
I find out how true that is when I fall into a sinkhole and Jesus meets me there. With a smile in my heart. I’m eager to do what he asks. My faith adventure takes me from the school playground to the hospital and home. All the while the Lord is with me, mine, and my new sister every step of the way.

5-Stars! “I fell in love with the prayer warrior Gracie. An old soul who would become a world changer for sure! The introduction of M&M as an Angel was reminiscent of the *Touched By An Angel TV show* which I love. It also reminded me of the movie *The War Room* and I like how the author combined the story with that of the janitor.” Becky reads

The little girl in this story was, full of grace and eager to please.The beautiful and kind way she was taught by her mother and the angel, M&M, was very special.
