New Children's Book Teaches Kids About God's Love and Forgiveness Through a Little Lamb's Journey from Trouble to Triumph

Colorful Barn Yard Characters and Bible Scriptures will Delight Kids and Parents Alike; Portion of Proceeds to Benefit Helping Hearts Equine Rescue, Inc.

JACKSON, NJ, June 23 /Christian Newswire/ -- 'Trouble Wears A Bell,' a new children's book by author Maria Baggerly, tells the tale of a cast of colorful barn yard animals and the birth of a little lamb who can't seem to stay out of trouble.

Whether young or old, we all make mistakes. This book shows in an easy to understand way that God's love for us is always present, waiting for the opportunity to help us overcome life's obstacles.

"I wrote 'Trouble Wears A Bell' for children, because God says in His Word that we should encourage children to come to Him, not hinder them," said Baggerly. "In fact, we all must become as children -- accepting, trusting and loving God wholeheartedly -- if we are to enter the kingdom of heaven." (1)

Christian and Jewish parents, as well as religious teachers and ministry leaders, will also value this unique story as it prompts Bible-based discussions and gives examples of God's love for us.

'Trouble Wears A Bell' can be incorporated easily into Children's Church, Sunday School and Vacation Bible School programs. Visit for helpful lesson plan outlines and activities for children.

The book is available now, and a portion of all book sale proceeds will be donated to Helping Hearts Equine Rescue, Inc., a non-profit animal welfare organization dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and placement of equines in need.

1. At that time, the disciples came to Jesus and asked, "Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?" [Jesus] called a little child and had him stand among them. And He said: "I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me."

Matthew 18:1-5 NIV
