About the Book

Lita, the Juoy-baby of inner-light, chooses to give up a blessed life, filled with immense beauty and abundance, to embark on a very important mission. Despite being the beloved daughter of King Abner, ruler of Pardes, she becomes a Limp in the land of Faragh, a desolate and forsaken place. Here she learns that life is tough; a daily battle for food, shelter and survival. A battle between the haves and the have-nots. Her path crosses with three fallen Juoy-babies who she persuades to join her on her journey back to Pardes through the ominous Plaga Valley. In the Valley the foursome is challenged around every corner, facing terrifying ordeals, beasts and life-threatening dangers. It is an onerous quest. Can Lita’s light help lead these fallen Juoy-babies safely back to Pardes … and at what cost? The Juoy-babies was written for children 8 years and older with the hope that it might start a conversation about God, Jesus and the stories of the Bible. It aims to reignite a curiosity and interest in picking up and reading the best book ever written: The Bible. It is important to emphasize that this story is just that: a story. However, it points to the Truth. King Abner and Lita are ‘created ambassadors’ of God’s glory and serve to illustrate God’s brightness, attributes and character.
