Why I Started Writing:
As a kindergarten and first grade teacher for most of twenty-seven years, I regularly found myself writing songs, chants, and books to enhance lessons and make learning memorable and fun. Soon after retirement, I felt inspired and awakened, sometimes in the middle of the night, to write rhyming Christian children’s books.
I now celebrate blending my education in education with my passion for biblical studies to author books that point children to Jesus and retell Bible stories.
Authors Who Have Influenced Me:
I like to say, “Dr. Seuss lives in my head, but Jesus lives in my heart.” I love to spend time in God’s Word, being inspired by both the Old and New Testaments and seeking life changing application from all Scripture.
Other life influencers include Andrew Murray in The Ministry of Intercession, Rick Warren in The Purpose Driven Life, and many daily devotional books by Sarah Young and Joyce Meyer.
What I'm Working On Now:
Now that my picture book, Before Your Birth Day, has been released, I am working on another. Adam Plus One is not your typical Garden story. In this amusing account, Adam has been given the job of naming the animals, however, none are up to par once Adam is looking for an actual partner. Even though all of God’s creation is ‘good’, no fish, bird, or land animal are right for Adam. God agrees that Adam’s being alone is ‘not good,’ so as Adam sleeps, God provides the partner perfect for man. You can be reassured that this story has a ‘very good’ ending!
God has provided another amazing illustrator for the rhyming picture book, Adam Plus One, so we hope you will stop by in a few months to see it all coming together.
I also continue to work on my weekly devotion/blog that can be found at http://pointingtheway.live and eventually hope to create a yearly devotional based on the book of Acts.
