The Fun of Meeting Jesus, Author Roberta Grimes

The Fun of Meeting Jesus is a beautifully illustrated read-aloud book that contains the key Gospel teachings of Jesus without a Christian overlay. These simple and intuitive teachings can be helpful even for people who have a different faith tradition or no faith tradition at all, and they are magical for children.

At its heart, this is a young child’s adventure story. Barry, Emme, Sarah, and Quentin are neighbors aged from three to eight years who venture into the Scarey Woods behind their homes to play. They soon become lost. While trying to find their way home, they encounter Jesus sitting beside a stream. He has been waiting for them. Jesus befriends and comforts the children, answers their questions, and cuddles the youngest in his lap as he shares with them his Gospel teachings on forgiveness, love, the meaning of life, and the nature of God. He walks them to their back yard gate and promises that he will never be far away from them: if they seek him, they always will find him.

The Fun of Meeting Jesus can be enjoyed by pre-readers and early readers alike. It includes a brief message for grown-ups so they can see these teachings in their Biblical context, and so they can better use them to help their children grow in love, forgiveness, and kindness. These simple teachings can help children learn to live a happier and more love-filled life.

But I have been able to breakthrough my own fears and limitations by learning how to be the Light. Therefore I was able to reflect on my own experience and share this wisdom with her. This wasn’t something that I just made up in the moment to tell her a story and trick her mind. It was based on my own personal experiences.” – Monica Iglesias

Creating Peace (You Are A Powerful Creator My Little One), Author Monica Iglesias

CREATING PEACE is an empowering story based on actual events. A loving mother guides her 7 year old boy, André, to discover what peace feels like in his heart so that he can assist with creating Peace in the home with his family. Through a series of quality questions, the mother guides André to discover his own answers. André is then able to help create peace in the home with his siblings, which allows his mother to rest and rejuvenate.

Throughout the book, the quality questions used to guide André through his process are highlighted for your convenience and reference. Also, included in the back of the book is a list of 10 Ways to Empower the Children in Your Stewardship.

The author uses the colorful setting of this children’s book to teach powerful principles that inspire and empower children, youth, and adult alike to create Heaven on Earth – first in the heart and then in the home.

By empowering the children in her stewardship, Monica Iglesias has been able to release the “burden” of parenting and find Joy in it. Here are her words:

“As a parent, I thought I had to sacrifice everything for my children, apparently even my sanity. I felt that their happiness and success in life depended solely on me as their mother. That was a heavy burden to carry alone. I got burnt out a lot until I realized that I didn’t have to do it all myself.

I learned how to empower the children in my stewardship to be conscious creators of happiness, peace, love, courage, joy and so much more, through a series of quality questions much like the ones highlighted in this book. I learned that their answers were inside of them all along. I didn’t have to tell them what to do or how to be, I just needed to know how to guide them.

Empowering them has changed my life and released a heavy burden. Today, we co-create the life we choose to experience TOGETHER. I am so grateful for the powerful little creators in my life. They have taught me so much of what is possible for me in my own life and have inspired countless others.” — Monica Iglesias

A Note from André (the main character and subject of the book):
“Unlocking PEACE within my heart feels like a Super Power! I can go in and out anytime I choose. Anytime I feel stressed or need a quiet space to think or do homework, I can go into that space and get focused and clear on what I need to do.

I’ve had opportunities to create Peace at home, at school, or wherever I go. When I create PEACE in my home, it makes Mom and Dad happier and they are more likely to say “yes” to things -That’s a bonus! But Creating Peace benefits everyone around.

Help me create more peace in the world by discovering what it feels like in your
own heart.”
