From Inspiration to Fun


Today I'm making a small change from inspiration to fun! It's my great pleasure to announce to you that my first children's book, Animal Sound Mix-up, has just been published and is available from Guardian Angel Publishing. Having three small grandsons has added a new facet to my creative writing, and I'm excited to have this opportunity to share with children the fun, the wonders of God's amazing creation, and the fact that all God has created is right and good.

Trust me to find a little inspiration in the midst of the fun! It is a fun book, with adorable illustrations by Kit Grady, but it also has a tiny gentle lesson included. You'll have to read it to find that!

I've started a children's blog and hope you'll pop over to visit, leave a comment, follow if you'd like. I'll be adding more fun poems soon!
