Book helps kids deal with temptation
Terri Ketterling of the Hayden area is a first-time author with a newly released book, "Say NO! to Satan."
Ketterling, who says she observes that many children are exposed to temptations daily, emphasizes the importance of staying on the right path to Jesus and reminds young readers of this book to stand strong against Satan's temptations.
"One night I had a very vivid dream. When I awoke, I immediately wrote it down into words. I felt God wanted me to share this story with children," noted the author on how she came up with the idea for this book. "This book is very dear to my heart, because the main characters are my son (Eric), daughter (Calli McNicholas) and mother (Margaret Hull Keene). An added blessing is the publication date (March 7); it is my grandmother's birthday (Juanita Vickrey)."
"Say NO! to Satan" shares the experiences of two siblings who find a wonderful treasure. They soon realize it is not a treasure after all, but a temptation from Satan. Remembering the Bible stories their Sunday School teacher Miss Margaret had taught them, they pray to God and are able to resist temptation.
