James R. Strickland, great-grandfather who has been telling stories to children since he was a teenager, has completed his/her new book, "Mary's Community Garden: Feed My Ship": an inspiring story of a group of children who plant a garden to feed the hungry. A retired college professor, Strickland uses his inventive imagination to produce insightful stories like this one. He has written many scripts for Christmas programs and lessons for church school, along with his other book in this series, "Does God Have a Favorite Pet Dog?".
Published by Covenant Books of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, Strickland's new book starts with young Mary who is inspired during a sermon when she hears that God told Peter, "Feed my sheep." This lightbulb moment for Mary leads her to hatch a plan to build a community garden.
With the help of her close friends, their beloved pets, and their parents, Mary plans, plots, and plants a new community garden to share food with others. Along the way they meet new friends, work together for a higher purpose, and learn one of life's most valuable lessons: It is great to help God's people.
Readers can purchase "Mary's Community Garden: Feed My Sheep" at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon or Barnes & Noble.
