Author Biography

Wanda Carter Roush, a mother to five and MiMi to five, has homeschooled her children for the last twenty plus years. A former Sunday school teacher and children’s church director, she has used stories of angels to communicate God’s love to children.

The idea for Angel on Assignment came to Wanda while caring for her youngest daughter, who has severe epilepsy. While the elf was fun, she wanted to instill a mysterious hope in her child’s heart that would last a lifetime. Wanda believes the angels catch the little ones when they fall and have caught her little one who “falls” often. Wanda’s hope is that this book would stir an awareness that angels are among us.

Wanda Carter Roush is founder of National Give a Bunch of Balloons Month. The National Day Calendar proclaimed National Give a Bunch of Balloons Month to be observed annually in the month of June to celebrate another day with someone who has a terminal illness or a life altering condition. National Give a Bunch of Balloons Month delivers smiles to what might be a mundane day --"because every breath is a gift."

Angel on Assignment: An Angelic Tradition by Wanda Carter Roush is an enchanting book and a great way to introduce children to angels. The book begins with a Heavenly Messenger coming down from the sky and telling Mary about a wonderful surprise. They send a message to Joseph too and tell him what to do in his dream. The angels foretell the birth of Jesus and they are there when the greatest gift to mankind is born. Angels are created by God and they are more than mysteries from the past. They have missions and jobs to do and are sent by God. They guard and protect everyone and they always appear during times of need. Angels are on assignment everywhere and will appear with the help of a small prayer.

The story is beautiful and it will encourage child readers to help people in need by saying a kind word or doing a good deed. The pictures are adorable and I am sure readers will enjoy the activities at the end of the book. These are fun and interactive and make this book perfect to use in art and crafts activities in classrooms and school libraries. Children will have fun making paper angels and coloring them, and these activities will take them closer to understanding angels. It is a good storybook for parents and tutors to help children understand about angels and about God's love through the presence of angels. This book will help children think about angels in a different way and it is a perfect bedtime storybook for youngsters. There is a lot of information about angels and it is a great way to show children that angels are real and they are around us.
