I guess you could say I’ve loved reading since I was young.


My Mom was instrumental in introducing my brother and me to quality books like “Green Eggs & Ham,” and “Aesop’s Fables.”

Reading painted colorful pictures in my mind and whisked me off to magical places where animals could talk and happy endings were guaranteed. As I got older, I knew I wanted to contribute to the art of writing.

As a twenty-something, I earned a degree in Corporate Wellness and got a job in the health field. I found myself with lots of opportunities to write articles for our company’s newsletter. Years later, as a wife and mother, I had more time to devote to my love for crafting stories.

I sensed God’s direction as He opened some doors and closed others. An inspirational/devotional blog was born that morphed into a website. I gradually expanded my audience to include children.

With the launching of my first children’s book, “Louie’s BIG day!” I hope to give parents one more tool to use as they train their kids to love and serve the Lord:

And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.Deuteronomy 6:7

It’s SO important to take advantage of every opportunity to teach our children biblical truths. I’ve designed the Louie-the-Lawnmower series to do just that: teach concepts from the Bible in a kid-friendly way.

The Lord has a purpose and plan for each person He has created. Use every tool at your disposal to point your children to Him and build them for His glory. He’ll be faithful to reveal the plan He has for them.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, Thank You for creating me with a purpose. When I follow You one step at a time, You are faithful to show me what I should do next. Help me take advantage of the tools You provide to build my kids for You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
