SAN DIEGO — Bible Belles has just launched the first book of an original children’s series titled The Adventures of Rooney Cruz. The series will focus on five superhero women from the Bible starting with the first book, “Hannah: The Belle of Prayer.” Rooney Cruz, the main character, is a regular 9 year old girl who learns she possesses hidden superpowers, and her first adventure takes her on a journey that will change her life forever as she discovers her first secret superpower: the power of prayer.
According to author and creator of The Adventures of Rooney Cruz, Erin Weidemann, “Rooney Cruz is a character who struggles through the challenges and difficult situations that most girls face as they grow up. We want to help girls identify powerful ways to approach life’s challenges by highlighting real heroes, Heroes For Her™.”
Erin Weidemann is a full time teacher, mother, coach and five-time cancer survivor whose life story is amazing in itself. She was convinced that being a wife and mother were not in her future, but she has experienced that with God nothing is impossible. Her personal experiences, seeing negative life situations used for good in her life and for others while finding her own personal destiny, inspired her to create this life-changing series that will help girls around the world fulfill their destiny as well. You can find out more about Erin’s amazing story at www.ErinWeidemann.com.
The characters in The Adventures of Rooney Cruz are brought to life through high-quality illustrations by former Disney animator Rob Corley, who is known for his work on The Lion King and Beauty and the Beast. Like the Disney classics that are passed down from generation to generation, The Adventures of Rooney Cruz is an impactful series parents and grandparents will want to share with their children and grandchildren. Parents of homeschoolers, Sunday school teachers and Christian educators will want to use them as a resource to teach moral principles to the next generation through these strong, female role models.
The first book of the Rooney Cruz series, Hannah: The Belle of Prayer, is now available in time for the holiday season, a gift that will transform girls ages 6 to 10. The book is available both in a hard copy and in a downloadable format. To find out more about the book or to purchase, go to www.BibleBelles.com.
