TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - A Topeka homeless shelter employee is seeking to give children hope with a new book.

The Topeka Capital-Journal (https://bit.ly/1sroZiv ) reports that “In Darkness, a Light Still Shines.for Kids!” features 52 short chapters. It’s the creation of Jessica Hosman, who is director of children’s ministries for the Topeka Rescue Mission.

The book has child-friendly replications of stories found in “In Darkness, a Light Still Shines,” which was written by the mission’s executive director, Barry Feaker, in 2012. Feaker wrote stories about homelessness, depression, poverty, hunger, mental illness and other challenges confronting those coming to the mission.

Hosman says the children’s book is intended to be read as a weekly devotional for children ages 6 to 12.

Book sale proceeds will support a day care facility for homeless children.
