Bella is one pampered kitty! She has a warm bed, tasty food, and owners who love her—but she was not always that way. Follow the humorous story of Bella, a sassy cat who started off as a lonely kitten without a home or a family to love her. From dodging raindrops to running from lawn-mowers, being a stray cat isn’t all it’s cracked up to be! Bella ventures on a crazy journey as she moves from place to place, never knowing that what she really needed all along was a family to love her. But change is scary!

In order to accept her new home, Bella must learn a valuable lesson in Bella Gets Rescued: God’s love and assurance can conquer all fear!



“I recommend to you the story of Bella Gets Rescued.  We all have been rescued by the person of Jesus and we just need to recognize that as Bella did.”
—Dave Ferguson, Lead Pastor of Community Christian Church

“As a seminary student it was obvious that Ellie was a deep theological thinker and had a heart for ministering with children.  In this book she demonstrates her unique ability to make the profound seem simple and the complex become clear.”
—Dr. Don Green, President and Professor of Leadership
Lincoln Christian University

“On its surface Bella Gets Rescued is a story of a nameless stray kitten, lost and afraid in the world, who is adopted into a loving caring family.  But it is about so much more:  God’s unconditional love and adoption that can change us; moving from fear to faith.  Children and parents will enjoy and benefit from both the story and its message.”
—James Riley Estep Jr., D.Min., Ph.D.
Professor of Christian Education

“God’s eyes constantly roam to and fro throughout the whole earth looking for the Bellas of the world that need rescuing.”
-Becky Boggs
Training Coach, Pioneer Bible Translators
