Some years ago, when God spoke to me regarding writing children’s books, I immediately said, “Yes.” Of course, I had plans of writing that great American romance novel. However, I tossed my plans to the wind and hit the road running, writing for God! I have never looked back and I love writing children’s stories. My prayer is for my words to minister to and enhance the lives of my readers. The process of writing Christian stories includes my reading and studying God's Word. It has helped me to grow closer to God and I feel I am indeed living my best years. Moreover, I pray through my studies, it helps me to become a better storyteller of Christian children’s books. Psalm 78:4 states: “We will not hide these truths from our children; we will tell the next generation about the glorious deeds of the LORD, about his power and his mighty wonders.” Revealing who God is to children is my goal. God gave this mission to me and I’m doing it!
