The Lighted Trail is a book written by native Kansan author, Elva Ward Browning. Born on December 21, 1904, to a rural pastor and his wife, she was the second of nine children. Mrs. Browning, known as "Grandma Doc" to her grandchildren and great grandchildren, was a schoolteacher for four years prior to her marriage in 1927. She loved the Bible and taught numerous Bible study courses and Sunday School classes over the ensuing years. She read her Bible daily, and, at the time of her death, was on her 88th reading cover to cover.
Grandma Doc's grandughter, Mary Lynn McMichael, has joined with a Who's Who in children's production media, and together this team has taken the book and developed it into a wonderful new Bible stories educational series for children. Mary Lynn is a professional educator and, along with her husband, Chuck, a 4-time Telly award winner. She and Chuck were witten up in a feature article in the February 2010 issue of Teaching Music magazine.
A unique combination of History, Art, Geography, Science, Ancient Culture, as well Biblical facts and Moral Virtues, is used to create each episode of The Lighted Trail. Selected segments will teach children to cope with their fears and find strength in God through the Bible. Every program will teach children Biblical principals through stories designed to encourage them to a walk in faith. All original music for each episode is created to educate and inspire. The series is slated for 45 episodes per year. Development plans also include a Vacation Bible School program based on characters and themes of The Lighted Trail.
