“No matter how their life may seem,” says Maheu, “they can be sure of Jesus’ love to ease their sorrows, fears, anger, pain, hurt, sickness, loneness or rejection.”

Author Lisa Maheu spreads an important message about God’s word to children of all ages with her new children’s book, “Joel's Chance” (published by WestBow Press).

All his life, Joel dreamed of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro and reaching the very highest summit. When he finally gets the chance, Joel cannot wait to begin the climb, but even with his new friends, Enrico and Francesca, the journey to the top is marred with perils and pitfalls.

With only his faith to keep him warm, Joel, Enrico and Francesca embark on the epic climb up Mount Kilimanjaro and face relentless cold and enduring hunger. It will take all of Joel’s strength and faith in Jesus Christ to reach the top. Can he do it?

Though Joel’s story, Maheu illustrates her message that God is always present when he is needed most. She hopes her readers will learn to look to God when they face great challenges and obstacles.

“No matter how their life may seem,” says Maheu, “they can be sure of Jesus’ love to ease their sorrows, fears, anger, pain, hurt, sickness, loneness or rejection.”
