Book is the product of an author whose hardships let her keep Christ near
LONGWOOD, FL--One Little Candle ($20.99, paperback, 978-1-60957-616-5; $32.99, hardcover, 978-1-60957-617-2), a new Xulon Press title from author Lena L. Parker, Ph.D., tells the story of Jessica L. Malone, a girl who journeys from the hills of Appalachia to her new home in Ohio. Certified to be a teacher, she begins work immediately, and teaching proves more wonderful than she dreamed it could be. Captivated by family and love for her students, years pass swiftly, but life presents pitfalls and tragedy strikes again and again. Her belief in Christ, however, uplifts her spirit and minimizes her pain. This book, which is the product of a Christian author whose own hardships allowed her to keep Christ very near, imparts the joy of being a Christian and offers hope and encouragement to readers of all ages.
"One Little Candle exemplifies the need for readers to believe in a power higher than themselves and invites them to experience firsthand the unexcelled joy of being a Christian," the author says. "Life is our gift from God and the way that we live it is our gift to Him. What a privilege it is to share His greatness with others."
Parker--a retired educator who holds advanced degrees in guidance and counseling and educational leadership--personally experienced the events depicted in the story. Early in life, her Christian mother shaped her character and led her to Christ. Later, her role as an educator promoted in-depth thinking and ongoing analysis. The joy of being a wife, mother, grandmother, teacher, and student inspired her to write from the heart and to integrate the knowledge, truth, and beauty gained from life's ongoing experiences. The book she has written aspires to enlighten weary hearts and benefit humanity.
