Raising Simba is an inspiring story by Falisa Ray about the hurdles she and her son went through. Lisa, as she was addressed in the book, was a very spiritual woman who had heard God speak to her in many instances when she seemed stuck. Just like her grandmother, Lisa had grown to notice that she was gifted with premonitory dreams. She had a mixed grill of experiences growing up, but she always knew to trust God in prayer.

Lisa’s life seemed to be falling apart when she met a strange man who spoke into her life as though he had her story on his palms. She was in the middle of a custody battle, while her son, whom she loved so dearly, had gotten into trouble, and she hardly even had enough money to meet basic needs. She prayed and trusted God for her son, Aaron's, future. Read this book to find out more about this inspiring success story.

There is so much to love about this book, from the author’s writing style to the storyline of the book. First of all, I found the relationship between Lisa and her son really admirable. She loved him unconditionally and he too held her in high esteem. I like that he was very expressive around her, yet he was never disrespectful; this book would serve as a guide to a parent-child relationship. The author's writing is capable of evoking emotions. I could practically feel the joy every time something great happened for them. I also liked the spiritual takeaway from the book. Sometimes the help of God could be seen in the fortitude to go through tough times, and sometimes it could also be seen in the way the bad situation prepares us for the good opportunity ahead.

There wasn't anything to dislike about this book. Falisa is very creative and I love how real this book was to me.

I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars because the book is generally very interesting and inspiring. The positives above justify this worthy rating.

There is a long list of people to whom I could recommend this book, but most importantly, I’d recommend it first to Christians who struggle with understanding God’s direction, then to parents who are confused about how to train a special or gifted kid. People who are on the verge of giving up on their dreams would also find this book helpful.

The genuine bond between Lisa and her son, Aaron, as portrayed by the author, promises a heartwarming exploration of parent-child dynamics. The expressive yet respectful communication between them is something I look forward to witnessing. Moreover, the spiritual aspect adds a profound layer, illustrating the strength found in faith during challenging times. The reviewer's commendation of the author's writing style and the book's authenticity has definitely sparked my interest.

The fact that the reviewer finds Lisa and her son's connection so endearing suggests that the character relationships in the novel are both genuine and complex. The book is not only a pleasure to read but also an invaluable tool for comprehending and fostering positive parent-child interactions because of its portrayal of unconditional love and mutual respect, which sets a strong example for readers.
