Excerpt from the Book
After school, Faith ran up to her room.
Mama rushed up the stairs and knocked on the door. “Honey, what’s wrong?”
Faith sobbed, “Nobody likes me!”
“No, no,” replied Mama. “They just don’t know you yet.”
“I want to go home,” cried Faith, “to be with my friends!”
Mama took Faith in her arms and said, “Faith, this is our home. Daddy’s job is here and we all need to be together as a family.”
“Virginia Lieto expertly brings God to the forefront, educating children in a lively and compelling way.”

The Adventures of Faith, Hope, and Charity – Finding Patience is a beautifully written and illustrated introduction to what will be an important children’s series on the virtues.

Virginia Lieto beautifully illustrates with her well crafted characters, a story that teaches us that sometimes our greatest lessons in patience come in waiting for prayers to be answered. An excellent aide for parents and teachers in encouraging virtues in children!
