I kept a journal, created stories, wrote speeches, essays and church plays. When I was in school, I often entered story or speech writing contests and usually placed in the top four. In college, I had one professor tell me that she wanted an autographed copy of my first book.
Now that my children are on their own, I am returning to my passion and maybe one day soon, I will be able to send my professor an autographed copy of my first book: a collection of biblically based, first-person accounts by the legendary figures in the Bible’s Nativity story. It takes a fresh look at the unique challenges each one faced as they sought to follow God’s will for their lives, shines a new light on the entire Godhead’s close involvement in the events as they unfold, and seeks to encourage a closer walk with God as a result.
Stay tuned for more information as the journey to publication unfolds.
