I'm anxious for you to get to know this curious boy, who learns how God shows up in his life--in the midst of an unplanned, life-threatening situation. Although he is only 9 years old, Teddy's experience brings questions to his mind and heart that will take a lifetime to understand. But what he knows after facing this scary situation is that he is not alone, even when he feels alone.
Soon you'll be able to get your copy of "Teddy: A Boy Who Swam with Angels" set for release this Winter.
Stories can be magical! They can transform, teach, transport and inspire. 💡
When I was in middle grade, my mother frequently took me to the local library—I sat for hours solving one of Nancy Drew’s mysteries. Or I scoured “Highlights” magazines, for puzzles, stories or word games. (Who remembers Goofus and Gallant?)
My father consumed books. His favorites built faith and encouraged him to understand and love God.
Building faith and encouraging trust in God blesses the reader, and can create a compassionate heart.
Becoming aware of how He shows up in our lives, helps us Live Courageously.
This Winter, read how God shows up in Teddy's life as he tries to find his way home again. Through my new book, "Teddy: A Boy Who Swam with Angels," may you be inspired to grow in your faith, understand God more, and trust Him when circumstances look bleak.
How do you navigate the noise and confusion that’s part of daily life? What if there was a way to get help with things that matter most?
In my picture book, Chubbs: A Blind Cat Learns to Trust, Chubbs survives her disability by learning to recognize and listen to her “human’s” voice.
In a soon to be released chapter book for early middle grade readers, Teddy: A Boy Who Swam with Angels, Teddy must choose whether or not he’ll pay attention to the whispers that have come into his mind.
We can Live Courageously by learning to LEAN IN when God whispers.
In a noisy, confused world, it's sometimes hard to keep our hope and motivation alive. Uplifting, inspirational and faith based stories can bless us with courage to carry-on... and even the youngest among us can learn to trust.
"Chubbs: A Blind Cat Learns to Trust," and my soon-to-be published chapter book for early middle grade readers, "Teddy: A Boy Who Swam with Angels," are meant to encourage readers to trust themselves and the God who watches out for them.
