Two dreams have finally become a reality through the creation of a children’book titled, The Proper Use of One’s Shell, written by Jennifer Johnson and illustrated by Marley Ungaro. For both of us, it has been a long-time wish to write and illustrate for God and others beyond our family members. After much research and collaboration, we decided to self-publish this allegorical children’s picture book.

Some of Jesus’ most compelling teachings were communicated in parables,simple stories of truth told with the perspective of the listener in mind. It is with this premise that we have created a thoughtful and artful work for God’s children...of ALL ages! Included in this wonderful and lengthy read is a parent & child devotional with 7 activities in the back. This book has 60 pages, loaded with treasures for anyone who opens it!

The Proper Use of One’s Shell is a tale of a snail’s journey to find her purpose and the proper use of her outer shell through self-discovery and a compassionate mentor, a sunflower. The book’s purpose is to impart the theme that God has made everything beautiful in its time (Ecc 3:11), and He has gifted us each perfectly and for a purpose. To read more about the book and to keep up with it’s growth, please visit www.properuseproject.com or www.mungaro.com.
