Hi there! My name is Nayan Singh, and this is my pet lion Sher Singh. It’s a beautiful day here in Vancouver, and we are going to have a picnic in the park with my grandparents Dada Ji and Dadi Ji. We have packed up all of our food, except our fruit for our fruit salad. It would be fantastic if you could join us on this adventure to explore our local market. As we collect our fruit, we can learn their names in Punjabi, while singing to a familiar tune. I can’t wait! It’s going to be so much fun!
Dianne De Jong strives to teach children that amongst our visible differences, we are all the same. While on a mission trip in Haiti, Dianne was speaking with a sweet, faith-filled, elderly Haitian man. Although this man did not speak a word of English, the translator was able to communicate to her what this gentleman was saying. He smiled and pointed up to the sky saying, "Thank you for your kindness. We will talk again because we will all speak the same one language in heaven some day." This union of being as one and speaking one language that everyone comprehends sets the premise for the book, God's One Language. Children can listen to the moral of the story that it does not matter where in the world you go, all humans smile, laugh, cry, sleep and dream in the same language. Dianne believes love is universal and that all children will benefit from hearing this story which embraces having empathy for all we meet because we are all the same and recognizing we are all brothers and sisters as children of God. Dianne's other three children's stories include My Collection, God's Brilliant Shining Star and Where In The World?
Jordon Rosser knows perfectly well who she is: a student at a nondescript, subpar community college in the microscopic town of Armado, Arizona. Jordon was sure her fantasy of a more exciting and fulfilling existence was just that, a fantasy. But when she and her lifelong friend, “Razz” Lords, learn of an unusual college in Phoenix that offers the opportunity for a formal education, her fantasy begins to take on shades of reality. At the school, Jordon and Razz meet two men with the same beautifully sculpted face but with souls as different as night and day. Taken in by the school’s mystical and unorthodox nature, Jordon and Razz allow their suitors to guide them into two diverse worlds that jeopardize their friendship and their future. The girls’ lives unravel with each passing day as the perfect people surrounding them are revealed to be not just professors and campus staff but also entities linked to the divisions between good and evil. As Razz and Jordon are introduced to a new and unusual reality, they struggle with the truths their families have hidden from them. Memories of other realms flood their minds, triggering internal struggles as each girl comes to grips with her true identity, a conflict that will test the boundaries of their friendship forever.
