Newman’s new book blends the excitement of a safari with crucial life lessons


Akeem has a prevailing message that we can learn to hear His voice, no matter what age we are.

Deep in the heart of Africa, a young boy named Akeem and his pet leopard Trakee experience crocodile-filled waters and impending danger as he learns the hazards and thrills of trading on the African river. A terrifying cave-in at the mine where his father works will bring the family close, but can anything be done to save his father? Within the pages of Tracee Newman’s new book, Akeem, ($10.99, paperback, ISBN 9781619961265; $5.49, e-book, ISBN 9781622302246) children will learn about the power of prayer and its ability to transform their lives and hearts.

I have always believed that imparting spiritual values to our children is vitally important.”

Tracee Newman believes in raising kids to hear God so they can find His direction for their lives. She is the mother of three grown children, all of whom are following after God.
