God, please make them stop pulling on my hair.
Grace is about a relationship between two girls and their individual experiences in regards to faith. The title refers to the main character as well to a spiritual impression, identifying prayer as a means which one might triumph over a measure of adversity. Through this portrayal in these difficult times children need to know there is someone they can go to and believe in. I am hoping this is a possible resource for a parent, teacher, or other adult who wishes to utilize a similar idea.
Grace feels somewhat more conscious of her appearance noticing her front tooth is "missing" and recalls hearing something in church: "When you are having a problem and don't know what to do, God will show you." In Sunday School, she learns her name means "thoughtfulness towards others, favored, being thankful and given chances." This made her feel "special" and she makes a "friend" at the church named Peace, who has some of the same likes as she. After, spending and evening together the girls had dinner, Grace's father tells a "story" about piloting a plane through a awful storm, saying, "It was then that I began to think about God and how the rain and thunder, the lightening represents the test and trials in our lives."
In the concluding pages of "Grace" the two "best friends" talk "about everything under the sun" before Peace has to return home to her mother. This narrative hopefully integrates an understanding of certain Christian principles while highlighting qualities relating to courage, forgiveness, and loyalty. I hope to contribute a thought provoking piece of entertainment to the readers.
