Book One Endorsements

In this book it’s amazing how God intervenes through a dream to connect with a child. I believe God can use this book to inspire children of all ages to seek God and discover their dreams as well as God’s dreams for them. This is much needed in literature for young people in this day and age. Children are dreamers and we need to give them something to dream about . . . and that’s living for the Lord Jesus Christ.

I cannot imagine anyone not liking this book. Jesus and skateboarding. It’s real.

Skateboarder & pastor

In this day and age with books all about this, and all about that, one thing has to be central for me to even consider a read, let alone recommend it to someone. Christ has to be central! In just one chapter as I encountered Jed, Mak, and their love for skateboarding, I was more than excited to see God’s fabulous work through His One and Only Son boldly and beautifully presented as really He is. Jesus and skateboarding? Need I say more?

Book Two Endorsements

The Lion Heart and Alessio adventures cleverly combine the hilarious with the miraculous. As Mak and Jed enthusiastically embrace three more God-given missions they will tickle your funny bone and touch your soul. Expect rollicking family fun. This marvelous series deserves to become a classic. Any age will want to read it over and over.

It is with a humble and excited heart that I encourage boys and girls of all ages to read this beautiful story about two boys and their family’s wonderful journey with God. The whimsical cast of characters and their personal encounters with Christ, through the Holy Spirit, will inspire strong family values and relationship with God.

As a former pitcher in the Red Sox organization (1979-1985) I can appreciate the author’s use of baseball metaphors and authentic Boston accents within the dialogue. To say the least, Chapman hit one “outta the pahk” with this book! Megan is a gifted storyteller who has a unique way of describing a setting. I was able to see, smell, and feel each scene as she carried me through the story.

Although humor is a mainstay, the impactful moments will make you stop and think about how Christ works in your life. She is able to communicate biblical truth wrapped up in a fun adventure filled with sports and recreation for the whole family. So sit back, kick your feet up, and enjoy the ride!

As a homeschooling mother and wife of a pastor, I am thrilled to find books that not only capture my daughter’s interest but also reinforce the culture of faith we are trying to develop in our home. In such a fun and unique way, the characters in Lion Heart and Alessio show what a daring life of following God looks like. My 7-year old daughter is able to identify with Jed and Mak and could hardly wait to start this second installment after finishing the first. She says, “I love all the adventure! I can’t put it down. It’s so good!”
