Strays Welcome (Paperback)
Meet the most unusual soccer mom ever, Sally Lane Brookman, who is a new sort of human prophet. Brookman is part-God, part-archangel, and part-human, and she has been sent by God to share his teachings with people from all religious traditions. But first, Brookman has to teach her own family how to navigate the perils of ordinary life in the suburbs and overcome the most difficult obstacle of all: the neighbor's bad doggy. Walk and talk with the comical Brookman family as Sally tries to teach her kids lessons about turning the other cheek even when the neighbors aren't the easiest of people to love-and see how a modern-day prophet teaches children how to love and respect one another and themselves no matter the circumstances. Come join the zany Brookman family on a series of adventures filled with love, wisdom and gentle teachings that draw from the sayings of Jesus, Moses, Muhammad, the Hindu Upanishads, the Quran and the Sufi Mystic Rumi. Don't worry about what you believe or what faith you follow. Just come.
