About the author:
Lisa-Jane Erwin is a public librarian with professional roots in psychology and education. She has a Masters in Library Science from Drexel University and a Master of Education in School Psychology from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. Her undergraduate degree, also in psychology, is from Lincoln University. Prior to joining the staff of the Free Library of Philadelphia she established a career as an administrative social worker. She also worked as a therapist and behavior specialist for school-age children and youth and continues to be passionate about social, political and religious decision-making that impacts children and families.
Comfortable and effective with people across age, gender, faith and culture, she is often called upon to conduct trainings related to her broad range of professional experiences including, but not limited to, cultural awareness and diversity, social justice, domestic violence, interpersonal communication, and conflict resolution. She is a Christian who seamlessly weaves her faith into all aspects of her life and work and prides herself on her ability to create "safe places" for people to explore their emotions, decision making processes and life experiences.
She typically writes for private reflection and personal edification, and her writings tend to mirror her social, political and religious passions. Recognizing that children the world over struggle with self-image, self-worth and a general sense of belonging she decided to share Aunt Sadie's Angel in hopes that it will capture their hearts and minds and help them see themselves the way God sees them: created on purpose, with purpose.
Aunt Sadie's Angel
Lisa Jane Erwin
Old and ready to die, Sadie Montgomery has no guardian angel to help her transition from mortal to immortal. Her rapid physical decline brings several angels to her bedside but none of them are hers. They are too young to be responsible for guarding Sadie and, try as they might, they cannot figure out who is. But it's just as well since Sadie refuses to go with them until proper arrangements have been made for the little girl in her care.
Unlike Sadie, young Rashida has four guards but they don't exactly get along. They stubbornly feud and fight before eventually accepting that they must work together to ensure that the will of God is carried out. Reluctantly, the fabulous foursome come together across race and gender and family history to devise a plan that will save Rashida Montgomery from becoming an orphan.
Victory is elusive, but they face their fears and train hard for the spiritual battle ahead of them. Lava, the only girl among them, fights as hard as the guys and just might be the fiercest of the four, but even she doesn't have all the answers. In order to accomplish their mission they must humble themselves before the wiser Elder angels and ask for direction and assistance.
