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
I wrote my first book, “The Adoptive &
Foster Parent Guide: How to Heal Your Child’s 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
I’m 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!
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
Most things! I have a “problem”with laughing fits! It always got me into trouble in grade
school. Once I begin to laugh, sometimes it’s hard to stop!
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
I love to visit St. George Island,
very family friendly, the beaches are beautiful, and my cell phone doesn’t work so I’m forced to take a
a verse or Scripture passage with us that is special to you. (and why it’s special)
One of my favorite verses is,
So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous
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 Child’s Trauma and Loss”and
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
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 Satan’s 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!
Lozier MSW LCSW is a clinical social worker in private practice in Louisville, Kentucky
where she is a member of Southeast Christian
Church. Ms. Lozier has spent over twenty-five years counseling children,
adults, and families specializing in issues of adoption, foster care, and
trauma. She is the author of “The Adoptive & Foster Parent Guide: How to
Heal Your Child's Trauma”and “Loss and Devotions of Comfort & Hope for Adoptive
and Foster Moms.”
