I live in Elsie, a town so tiny, it isn't even considered a town. It is a village in the middle of Michigan. There are more cows than people here. In fact my tiny village boasts one of the largest herds of dairy cows in the world. I like it best when the wind is blowing south.
I am a wife, a Mom of nine kids, a Nana, and I have been a foster mom to twenty eight kids. For over thirty years was a Sunday School Teacher and then a Children's Pastor.
When did your first book come out?
What is/are the title(s)?
He Reigns Series:
Reins of Love
Forever Settled in My Heart
Nothing to Fear
What core message does the book tell?
He Reigns is the series with your child's heart in mind.
It teaches chilren to put their whole trust in Jesus in every situation.
Nothing to Fear is an infant/toddler book based on II Timothy 1:7
Jesus is gentle, Jesus is kind,
He gives me power, He gives a sound mind.
What inspired you to begin writing?
Not what, but who inspired me to begin writing. I did not know in junior high school that it was God who was putting all those story ideas in my head. He has so many great things that He wants to share with us and He uses people like you and me to share his heart with others.
Who encouraged you the most to get that book out?
So many people. My Jesus, my husband and kids, my Sunday School kids.
What is your favorite, non-book related activity?
Teaching. I love to teach.
Where is the oddest place/event you have sold your book?
Adults have purchased my kid books for themselves!
What do you want people to know about you from this interview?
Kids are such fascinating people! They are fun and funny. They have great ideas. But most of all they have a tremdous capacity to understand and live out the word of God. They are made in the very likeness of God himself.
