Overview

What can we do to help bring healing and peace to a broken world? In this gentle retelling of the Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi, Dr. MaryJo Burchard exposes the power every person possesses to bring hope and healing. Follow along with Leanna Zeibak's thoughtful illustrations, as a young boy confronts devastation by quietly setting out to mend one broken thing at a time. The reader is immersed in stark contrasts between light and dark, as the boy encounters fear and courage, love and hate, watching as the tiniest light gradually transforms the deepest darkness. Inspiring for all ages, this book will help you hear the words of Saint Francis of Assisi again for the first time, and see your own life as a prayer for peace.

About the Author

MaryJo Burchard (Ph.D.) lives in Virginia Beach with her husband, Kenny, her son, Victor, and their chihuahua-pug, Stanley. You can call her Jo. When she isn't writing books, Jo works with leaders and teams going through big changes. Grownups still need to know they belong. Even leaders get scared and tired. Jo helps them make hard decisions and do hard things well - and still be kind and caring to each other. Her company is called Concord Solutions. She also likes to sing, play the ukulele, visit cathedrals, explore nature, and run very slowly in races (because she is busy taking pictures).
Leanna Zeibak got her start writing books on her family's Mac at the age of 10. After she earned her B.A. in Creative Writing, she found herself in the land of digital content marketing. She transitioned to her dream life as an artist and writer in 2019. In her spare time, she paints pet portraits (www.capturethewag.com) and imagines she's a professional baker. She lives in sunny Yakima, WA with her husband and their two dogs, Lou Lou and Wiley.
