A Warm Welcome to Carol Lozier

Is there a story behind your book Clothed In Armor: Spiritual Warfare for Kids? As a therapist, I work with children daily who have faced small or large trauma/hurt in their life. As a Christian, I quickly noticed that a piece of their negative self belief is part of a Spiritual battle that needs to be addressed in a different way than traditional therapy. As a result, I wrote the Clothed In Armor Bible studies.

What started you on your writing journey?
I wrote my first book, The Adoptive & Foster Parent Guide: How to Heal Your Childs Trauma and Loss in two years and published it in February 2012. I truly have felt that each book was a calling from God, and written as His request. 

What distracts you from writing the easiest?
Im a pretty focused person. When I start writing, the only thing that can distract me is a messy house and the urge to clean it!

What kind of books do you enjoy reading?
I love any books! I especially enjoy Amish books, Historical Fiction, and anything by Karen Kingsbury.

If you were a style of music, what style would you be?
Praise and worship. I love worshiping the Lord through music, and I feel His presence most at those times.

What makes you smile and/or laugh out loud?
Most things! I have a problem with laughing fits! It always got me into trouble in grade school. Once I begin to laugh, sometimes its hard to stop!

What is your favorite season of the year? 
I love Summer the best. I like the relaxed atmosphere and I love wearing shorts!

Where is your favorite place to travel/vacation in?
I love to visit St. George Island, Florida. Its very family friendly, the beaches are beautiful, and my cell phone doesnt work so Im forced to take a break!

Share a verse or Scripture passage with us that is special to you. (and why its special)
One of my favorite verses is,
Isaiah 41:10,
So do not fear, for I am with you;
    do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
    I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

I love this verse because it reminds I can always rely of God, even in the worst of times! He is my rock!

When is your next book due out and can you tell us about it?
I have two other books, The Adoptive & Foster Parent Guide: How to Heal Your Childs Trauma and Loss and Devotions of Comfort and Hope for Adoptive & Foster Moms. I am currently working on a journal/devotional for teens. I hope to have it out by the end of 2015.

Back Cover Blurb

Adopted and foster children enter their new family with a history of loss and/or trauma. As a result, they are an easy target for spiritual warfare and the evil strategies of Satan. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker for over 25 years, Ms. Lozier brings her clinical knowledge to this Bible study for your child. In the Bible study, you and your child will identify unresolved, past hurts that Satan is currently using to create feelings of doubt, self-criticism, or hopelessness. Instead of falling prey to Satans ploys, your child will identify and know THE TRUTH about themselves and others, and to learn specific ways they can fight back like a mighty soldier of God!

Very nice way to help kids in foster care or those that are being adopted.
