New Children’s Book Uses Cats to Represent the Fruit of the Spirit
For immediate release: According to the Humane Society, there are more than 86 million cats living as pets in the United States. Author Teresa Herbic has owned many throughout her life and tells the wonderful and unique stories of nine of her favorites. Through each of their individual adventures, parents can teach their children about various Biblical teachings. In her new book Cat Tales (Ambassador International; July 2013; $9.99, paperback), Herbic will have you turning the pages to see all nine stories of adventure.
Herbic calls the book “a special thank you to the nine cats featured throughout the book that my family adopted over the past 45 years. They remind us about God’s love and patience through simple warmth and kindness.” The adventures of Prince, Dakota, Lolli, and the rest of the family of cats teach readers the lessons of the Fruit of the Spirit highlighted in Galatians: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
The book also encourages adoption as a common thread throughout Cat Tales. The author is Director of Families for Adoption, Pleasant Valley Baptist Church. She and its leaders are considering including the adoption of pets as part of their support services, along with the domestic and international adoption of orphan children.
About the Author: Teresa Herbic currently serves as the Director of Family Groups at Pleasant Valley Baptist Church. She lives in Missouri with her husband, Galen, and their two adopted children, Meyana and Braxten, along with their cats, which inspired Cat Tales.
