“Why didn’t God protect me when I fell? Why didn’t God help me when I got a sore throat and had to have my tonsils taken out? What about when one of my friends from school died of cancer? Where was God then?” These questions plague little Penelope Jane’s mind and keep her awake at night.
In Don’t Be Afraid, Penelope Jane, a sweet stuffed turtle named Theo and the Word of God help Penelope Jane to deal with her fears, and see the truth that with God on her side, she never has to be afraid.
Author Penney Camper has worked with children since the age of 11, and has been teaching children’s church for more than 30 years with her husband, James. They both agree that teaching little ones has kept them kids at heart. Often called the “Happy Campers,” James and Penney have a son, daughter, son-in-law, and two granddaughters who bring joy to their hearts.
Author, Penney Camper
Don’t Be Afraid, Penelope Jane is the first in a series of children’s books by Camper, following Penelope Jane and her trusty turtle Theo as they discover God’s love, forgiveness, protection and more. These books come from a deep place in Penney, as someone who grew up painfully shy and overwhelmed by the world around her. Those experiences have created a desire in her to write books that make God’s Word personal and real for children everywhere.
