Through Ella’s many adventures and trials, Barbara incorporates important life lessons with a subtle message of spirit throughout, all while keeping the story light-hearted and fun. Ella is a role model for children as she often faces dilemmas and comes to satisfying conclusions by looking for out-of-the-box, spirit filled solutions. Children and adults alike will enjoy Ella’s fun-loving family and their entertaining antics.
Ella helps children learn important lessons and problem solving strategies based on Barbara’s many years of psychological counseling with a faith-based twist. She uses multiple media channels such as a diary blog with daily inspiration called “Ellagrams”. These are written for children in an engaging and developmentally appropriate manner that are both timely and relevant to the reader. Each Ellagrams post also incorporate a hand drawn, child friendly picture by illustrator David-Peter Campbell.
