WHEN I FLY WITH PAPA
My character Winnie teaches us how to feel without apology. As she does so, she dares to live a life of outrageous love and bravery. She feels without inhibition. Her relationship with Papa liberates her from the expectations to limit her feelings to a set of emotions. He embraces her emotions without hesitation. Winnie is free because she is fully herself with Papa. Her imagination and human emotions fly with the Papa whose presence, love, power, and image is not confined by any time, space, feeling, or image.
"I just found out about this beautiful new series from my friend Claudia May that explores “embodiment of emotional freedom through relationship with God and others.” The first book is called When I Fly with Papa, and its main character, Winnie, teaches us to “feel without apology.” My kids need that book. I need that book."
—Addie Zierman, author of When We Were on Fire: A Memoir of Consuming Faith, Tangled Love, and Starting Over
''A delightful, engaging, and evocative book that will capture the imaginations of young readers and older ones as well!''
