Bridges to Healing Children’s Series

Posted in: Uncategorized

 “Please get us something to help the children; they’re getting lost.”

This was the cry of chaplains from all branches of service when Cru Military asked, “How can we help you?” With a passion to help military children, Sherry Barron, used her experience as a military wife, mother, educator and author to write this new series of books for children whose parents may have combat trauma. Christ-centered, positive and practical tools and information are creatively set in the age-appropriate books. All three books are enriched with illustrations by animator and storyteller, Nick Adducci (BangarangAnimation.com). Each book in the series follows the topical structure of the highly praised book “When War Comes Home” by Chris and Rahnella Adsit and Marshéle Carter Waddell.

“My Hero’s Home!! A Guide for Young Children Whose Parents May Have Combat Trauma” is an activity and coloring book that tells the story of Cody and Carrie, and their dog Abby, whose daddy has come home from a deployment overseas. This story gives young children a voice to be able to express their fears and concerns when their own parent is dealing with Combat Trauma.

 “Helping My Hero!! A Guide for Young Readers Whose Parents May Have Combat Trauma” is a wonderfully illustrated book for 4th-6th graders, which tells the stories of two families from the points of view of their children. Helpful information answers questions the child may have; questions that they may not even be able to express.

“My Hero Hurts!! A Study Guide for Teenagers Whose Parents May Have Combat Trauma” provides concrete information which teens want to understand as their families struggle through the ripple effects of a parent’s Combat Trauma.  Solid facts and application points are paired with questions teens can use in small groups or one-on-one with their peers. Biblical principles are presented through key verses, prayer, and Bible study.
