Coloring Book – $5.00 “Lynn Somers and Friends” Character Coloring Book

Some captions are lines from skits or songs “the friends” share in live shows. Other captions reflect ideas for the TV Show Lynn Somers & Friends are developing.
Coloring Book – $5.00 “Dear Jesus I Wanna Talk to You … My Home Is Broken”
This is a special resource designed for children dealing with separation and divorce in their lives. The book is a companion piece to the song “My Home is Broken” which is an original song on Lynn’s God’s House/Our House cassette. The story song is told by puppet-character Mandy who pours her heart out to Jesus about her family situation. The story coloring book has the actual song lyrics on the top of each page and the story behind the song appears on the bottom of the page, with the pictures to color in the middle. It is hoped that as children color and read through this resource, that they can work through some of their feelings about the separation and divorce that is occurring in their family life. The song and story are based on real life situations.
