Synopsis: Preparing for the journey to Bethlehem in order to register for the census, Joseph groomed the gentle donkey colt chosen to accompany him and his bride, who was with child. Along the way, the charming little beast of burden committed to memory all he saw and heard along the way in hopes that his intuitive insights and attention to detail would be passed down for generations to come. Little did he realize he would be a witness to the birth of the Christ Child, never dreaming he would be pressed into the service of a King. Thus, the little chronicler fills in many gaps in the love story of Joseph and Mary, and the joyous birth of Jesus. This is his little tale. BUY NOW
Synopsis: Abraham’s Journey: A Celebration of the American Dream tells the story of a young boy, who through his faith, imagination and entrepreneurial spirit, sets out to achieve the American dream.
Taking place during the first Great Recession, the story begins with Abraham learning that his Mother and Father had recently lost their jobs. With Christmas not far away, and his parents unable to buy gifts for him and his sister, Abraham is determined to take matters into his own hands. Although he desperately wants to save Christmas for his family, the reality is, he too, has no money. But dreams can come true…where there’s a will and a way!
The story transitions with Abraham online texting his friends, searching for odd jobs around the neighborhood, when an old man with a white beard (symbolized by Abraham Lincoln) pops up on his screen. “Hello Abraham, I am here to help you,” the old man announces… as he extends his hand to the boy. Serving as his guide, Abraham is transported into a digital world, on a colorful and heartwarming journey… that will thrill and inspire.
Along the way, Abraham is introduced to a variety of successful American icons… preachers, artists, aviators, entrepreneurs, and philanthropists …all helping him to identify his special talent, and the many virtues necessary to help him achieve his American dream.
His journey now complete, the story culminates on Christmas Day with a simple act of giving. Abraham’s creativity, hard work and perseverance not only enable him to provide for his family, but through his compassion and generosity, he is also able to touch the lives of others. And that is truly a celebration of the American dream! BUY NOW
