About the Book

What can a poor little slave girl do for God?

This is an amazing story of bravery and faith of a little, nameless girl.

Who does God use to send a message? Whoever is available and willing to obey Him! In this case He used a humble, obedient, insignificant, person to show that there was a real God available to answer prayers! This story is taken from the Bible: II Kings 5: 1-19 - I was inspired to write the story for a first and second grade Sunday School Class that I taught. I used clip art in the original book, and was encouraged by friends to paint the illustrations and publish the book for you to enjoy.

About the Author

Born and raised in Meyersdale, Pennsylvania, Anna Housel Hamilton was the seventh of eight children. The beauty of nature that God created for people to enjoy has always been a delight in her life. To this day she says that there is no strawberry with flavor like that of a wild one from the fields of Shaw Mines.

She has been married to Lloyd Hamilton for close to fifty years, and together they raised three daughters. They now have seven grandchildren, and one great-grandchild. As young parents, Anna and Lloyd relocated from Pennsylvania to the metro Atlanta, Georgia, area. After their daughters left home to start families of their own, Anna began pursuing her talents as an artist. She finds inspiration for her art from the love and beauty of those around her. She enjoys painting children, her grandchildren, and, of course, the beautiful landscapes the Lord made with His own hands!

This book was first written for her Sunday school class at First Christian Church of Stockbridge, Georgia. She felt the material on Naaman was not elementary enough to keep the attention of the class of first and second grade students. After a prayer or two, and the help of a computer, the story came to life. There were so many responses from parents and friends that the paint brushes were soon brought out! This is the result of that little Sunday school lesson.
