Elizabeth Gets Her Wings is a whimsical story intended to teach children about God’s love. Olivia and I had fun creating this book. Elizabeth Gets Her Wings was Olivia’s first job as an illustrator. Her creativity and originality is fantastic. As you enjoy this story with your child, I challenge you to think about what it means to be a volunteer.
Elizabeth Gets Her Wings adapts easily as a drama making it a helpful resource for Sunday School and intergenerational services. Of course it’s a great book for reading together as a family at home.

“I can do that. Yes, for sure I can do that.
No problem,” I said.
God smiled and nodded.
Do they get to choose the gifts?” I asked.
“No, I’ve already chosen them,” God said…
