A newly launched children's book by Tanya E. Bulls is changing the way parents approach the development of self esteem in their children.

The new book Wonderful: A Book About Self Esteem Through God's Love is an inspiring story about a young girl who because feels ashamed of who she is because of the teasing and taunting of her classmates However, with the love and guidance of her mother; through scripture she is able to overcome the pain and move towards self love and acceptance.

Studies indicate that patterns of self esteem start early in life and once an individual reaches adulthood it is harder to make changes to how they see themselves. Of course, there are several books on self-esteem. But Wonderful: A Book About Self Esteem Through God's Love, is just one of the few resources that highlight the Christian perspective in the development of healthy self esteem.

The Holy Bible is filled with several affirming scriptures that promote self acceptance and self esteem. Scriptures such as: 'I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made...' encourage children to accept themselves regardless of imperfections.

Wonderful was written by Tanya E. Bulls- a school social worker who has counseled numerous children battling self esteem issues. When asked about the motivation for writing the book, she said: "It was a Sunday in June of 2015 and I was at the kitchen sink washing the dishes from Sunday supper. While standing there, the words began to come to me. I actually stopped what I was doing and asked myself where this was coming from. As the words continued; I stopped what I was doing and wrote them down. It took me an hour from start to finish."

"When I went to sleep that night I kept tossing and turning because I couldn't believe what had just happened. I told myself that this not anyone but God. I finally fell asleep and my last thought was I needed scripture for the book. Bright and early the next morning before I got out of bed I picked up my bible and began flipping through the pages and came upon Psalm 139:14 and Ephesians 4:32."

Wonderful: A Book About Self Esteem Through God's Love has been endorsed by Minister of Discipleship and Worship at the Mount Olive A.M.E Zion Church, Rev. Paula B. Blue. She said: "Wonderful is a must-read for parents who want their child (ren) to know they are loved unconditionally by God in spite of how others treat them and for children who need to be informed or reminded of this awesome truth."

The book is available on the author's website for a retail price of $10.99 (shipping and handling not included. International orders please email before placing your order). For further details visit:
