How Four Simple Words Changed Everything

In 2010, Dr. Alanna Bree was a successful pediatric dermatologist when she heard four unmistakable words from God. Stunned, and with only a mustard seed of faith, she listened as God's plans began to unfold in her life while fulfilling His mission of hope and healing.

A Children's House is the miraculous true journey of how one doctor risked everything to follow a calling-with a passion to positively impact the lives of children and teens around the world who are affected by skin disease and birthmarks.

Here are what readers around the world are saying about this inspirational true story:

"A book that touches the soul-and a reminder that there is no depth or height that life takes us where God's love can't reach us."
- Diane Tribitt, CEO and Founder of D'Lyric Inspired, leader of the Houston Vitiligo Awareness Movement

"A joyous testimony of how God orchestrates even the smallest details of our lives for his good! Through powerful stories of purpose, uncertainty, fear, and love, we see that God moves mountains in our obedience. A Children's House will leave you encouraged and challenged in your faith, with a renewed determination to live daily to bring glory to our great Father."
