I want children to understand that life with Jesus truly is an adventure!

Debra A. Kreilein’s new book, The Tombstone Treasure Mystery ($12.99, paperback, 978-1-62509-458-2; $6.99, e-book, 978-1-62509-459-9) is a fun adventure in which the main characters, three young detectives, use their brains and legs to solve the mystery and learn a spiritual lesson in the process. The author adds, “In ‘The Tombstone Treasure Mystery’ the verse is Matthew 6:21—‘For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.’ The children wrestle with the question ‘Is Jesus more important to us than finding the treasure?’”

“I want children to understand that life with Jesus truly is an adventure!” states the author. “I also want them to understand that life is full of challenges, but that the Lord helps us to meet those challenges head on and enables us to walk in victory. The book also deals with the fact that there are consequences for our actions and that we must take personal responsibility for them.”
