Hamilton Troll meets Pink Light Sprite

Christian Symbolism

As someone young to the Christian faith (when I wrote Hamilton Troll meets Pink light Sprite) I was eager to take in Gods word.  Like a sponge I soaked up everything I could get, so I guess it makes sense that in my writing, some of that Word, would spill out.

While it was never my intention on implementing Christian messages within the Hamilton Troll books, it just so happens that there are various passages that could be construed of as Christian, and many of them are similar to bible verses.  I chose a few to go with the story book stanzas, and while there were many more, these were the closest references.

My hope is that these scripture passages will add to a young child’s bible study or Christian teachings.
