Mary Loves to Sing
By Mary Perrone Davis
Little Mary loves to sing but is afraid to join her church’s choir. Mary’s parents use the opportunity to teach her that, if you love the Lord with your whole heart and soul, you should give back to Him the gifts He has given you. Just as eaglets learn to fly by leaving behind the safety of the ledge, Mary needs to step out in faith, believing that the Lord will lift her up. Some people may tell you that it is crazy to leap into the unknown, but they will never know the joy of soaring on the wind.

MARY PERRONE DAVIS is a wife, mother, grandmother, Lay Carmelite, and Registered Nurse (working as a school nurse). Mary never planned to be an author. She was spending some quiet time outside on a women’s retreat when a butterfly landed nearby and her first book, “Mary’s Butterfly Garden,” was born. This was soon followed by her books, “Mary and the Fireflies” and “Mary Loves to Sing,” which teach children, and parents, to step out in faith to give back to God what He has given them. Her latest book, “Mary Visits A Farm,” teaches children about the help God gives when they are yoked with Him. Mary hopes that her love of the Lord is reflected in her books and in her life, as she gives back to the Lord the gifts He has given her.
