It contains true stories which were written while Marion was raising her 5 children. It is a book to help a mother see God in her everyday life. Claudine Boquet did the whimsical illustrations in this book.

I like to help the little ones get a positive message from my books, she says. Marion has nine grand-children and six great grandchildren so she has plenty of inspiration for a lot more fun stories! Her writing career began with writing a skit to be used in the Cleanest City Contest. The skit called Auntie Litter won the State Award and was presented in all of the schools in Terrebonne Parish. She also wrote a musical puppet play which her Homemaker's Holiday club presented, with each member making their own puppets. A victim of childhood sexual abuse she will soon release a book to help young victims cope with this in their lives. Because Marion is a singer she will also incorporate music and her love of music into her next stories. Her books are all colorful with nice bright pictures. Her stories are straight from her heart.
