The Lonely Marshmallow

September 20, 2022

Marsh knows firsthand that good friends are hard to find. He is a very sweet and outgoing marshmallow that is looking for companionship. It meant a lot to Marsh, a lonely marshmallow to find someone to be able to have fun and enjoy being around. In the Cupboard, he was saddened when everyone already had friends or just wanted to be left alone.

Marsh was determined to step out of his comfort zone and try something new. As he gained the courage to step outside of the Cupboard, he was happy to be greeted by the sweetest aroma he had ever smelled. Marsh meets a friend named Cocoa who introduces him to some very beautiful scenery and quickly learns that some friends are worth melting for.

Story of Author LaWanda Lewis Burrell

Writing has never been optional for Author LaWanda Lewis Burrell. Like eating and breathing, it’s something integral to her existence. Growing up she was often told that she was a great storyteller with a broad imagination.

LaWanda was inspired to write her book after accepting a position as a HR Director, but later noticed it was a toxic work environment. She got the courage to speak up for the unethical behaviors, but was later harassed and terminated.

After praying in the closet, LaWanda reached for a box on the top shelf and out fell a journal that she had written 5 years prior. She immediately started to type her first draft of her book. God blessed her with a book contract after she forgave the ones that mistreated her.

LaWanda's pain turned into her passion and God revealed her purpose.
