Book Description

In An Angel to Watch Over Me (originally published by Random House in 1994, with sales of 150,000 copies), Anderson shares more than 30 stories of children's experiences with celestial beings. From a boy whose angels helps him conquer his fear of thunderstorms to a girl who is miraculously rescued from her burning home, each of these accounts is grounded in traditional Christian belief, eschewing any New Age interpretation of the events.



Editorial Reviews

Review

"If you have children at home, these stories will be a wondrous way to teach them about the providence of God."
--The Good News, Diocese of Kalamazoo


 "Adults will easily get in touch with their 'child within' as they read through the stories of love and protections."
-- Shellie Braeuner, New Catholic Books & Media

Book Description

Children are known to have wild imaginzations, which explains why their stuffed animals talk and invisible friends get invited to tea parties. So it's no wonder than when a child reports a personal encounter with an angel, adults tend to dismiss it with a wry smile and say, "That's nice, sweetie. Why don't you go outside and play?"

But Joan Wester Anderson says "not so fast." If Jesus himself taught that the kingdom of heaven belongs to children, there's no reason in the world not to believe that God can reveal his love to little ones through angels. In An Angel to Watch Over Me (originally published by Random House in 1994, with sales of 150,000 copies), Anderson shares more than 30 stories of children's experiences with celestial beings--from a boy whose angels helps him conquer his fear of thunderstorms to a girl who is miraculously rescued from her burning home.

From angels who combat evil and darkness to angels who bring news of comfort and joy, each of these accounts is grounded in traditional Christian belief, eschewing any New Age interpretation of the events. For all who are open to the possibility that even children can have authentic spiritual lives--and that attaining a certain age is not a prerequisite for God to touch our lives in the form of heavenly helpers--this book is sure to stir the soul and fan the faith.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to read April 3, 2012
Format:Paperback
Ms Anderson, has written many books in this area and they are written to read with ease and for Children as well as adults to read. When you read the short stories, you can usually relate to what you are reading, and maybe even remember an event in your past you could not explain. She has great insight and belief. Great book to read and relax.. Pat Hodge

5.0 out of 5 stars Out Of The Mouth Of Babes April 28, 2012
Format:Paperback
I loved this book. In fact, I couldn't put it down. This book is a really good one to read if you're looking for a miracle..if you're looking for hope, because out of the mouths of these children come things that they couldn't possibly make up..and also out of the mouths of their families...Miracles do happen...and there are thousands and thousands of angels in our world...happenings that surpasses all human understanding. This book is really a well-written account of some of them. Very good read..I would recommend it to anyone...

More About the Author

Joan Wester Anderson began writing in 1973, as a way to bring home a second income for her family of seven. "It was to be a temporary situation while I figured out what talents I had," Joan says. However, she never got around to deciding; instead she slipped into magazine feature writing, and did an occasional book,too. "The books never sold very well--my mother sometimes bought a copy---but they gave the illusion that I was somewhat of a professional, which was important for my self-image."

In 1992, Joan realized that her children had all finished college and moved away. Perhaps it was time for her to do the same. One of her sons had experienced an amazing miracle, so she decided to write one last book in thanksgiving to God, and then return to college to prepare for her next career. Instead, her "thanksgiving book" became a New York Times best-seller, WHERE ANGELS WALK, and some twenty years later, it has sold almost two million copies.

Joan is widely regarded as one of the two writers who began the "angel craze," and spoke around the country as experts and talk show guests. Today she is the author of nine books on angels and miracles, and continues to send out stories to her mailing lists of "angel lovers."

Recently Joan discovered that she has five grandchildren, all extremely adorable, and is currently cutting back on her work to spend more time with them.
