After several recurring dreams about a tree where children would encounter God, Traci Vanderbush felt led to write a book for children that would release emotional healing, based on some of her personal experiences with the Father. Within the dreams, she kept hearing "Mr. Thomas and the Cottonwood Tree." She began researching cottonwoods and found that they exude a resin that some refer to as a "Balm of Gilead." This confirmed to her that there would be healing within the story. Her husband, Bill Vanderbush, offered illustrations which they chose to keep simple and without color in order to allow childrens' imaginations to paint a picture. Based in Austin, Texas, William and Traci continue their journey into discovering the immense goodness and grace of God, and His ability to bring healing and redemption into the most impossible situations. As a wife and mother, Traci desires to inspire others to hold to a hope that exists beyond our realm. For more information, please visit www.billvanderbush.com.
Autobiographic and inspirational story of the author's life. Detailing God's amazing grace and His divine purpose for her. God uses everyday individuals to impact our lives, some who never even realize their influence upon others. In this story you will read about several people who God used to impart His love, grace, wisdom and direction for her life. The story is told with excerpts from her father's autobiography, which gives the reader two perspectives of the events. This is a story of overcoming personal challenges and difficult circumstances by faith in God. Moving from a life of poverty and social statistical odds mounted against her, she overcomes them with the help and instruction of many people. She grows to see God's divine hand in the relationships He establishes between her and other individuals. After hearing God's voice she begins to follow Him as He leads her into divine purpose. This book will encourage you to seek God's will for your own life, which leads to experiencing the abundant life Jesus talked about in John 10:10. It is vitally important that we examine and reflect on our lives, to see the grace of God and begin to follow HIS plan and purpose. I pray this book will be an instrument which God can use to bring others into His Kingdom.
