MY WRITING JOURNEY
And how Emily Explores the ABC's of Salvation came to be...
My love of the printed word started with a bag of potato chips, soda and a book. We sat at the kitchen table on Friday nights, mom reading picture books ( a lot of them Golden Books ) to my brother and me. ( See my Pinterest Board )
In elementary school, I was allowed to check out books at my school library. The first time that I walked into our library I was awed and overwhelmed with the beauty of the space: wooden floors, bayed windows, and best of all, towering shelves of books. I felt like "Belle" in Beauty and the Beast when she was shown the Beast's library. ( I knew the Beast had her then. ) After some time, I started to experiment, writing stories of my own.
I found that writing was hard work. That wasn't a bad thing but a reality check. My desire to write was still there, but at this point, I didn't think that I had anything important to share.
I began writing again after a big change in my life. The Lord made known His personal love for me and His desire for me to surrender myself to Him. Now I had something important to share: the love of the Lord Jesus Christ, not only for me, but more importantly, His love for everyone.
Emily grew as I brainstormed how to deliver the message of God's salvation. I decided to use the ABC's. I wrote and rewrote. It took about two years to finish. It is my hope and prayer that God will use this picture book to change your life like He did mine. You may see a page of Emily's book on this site or go to Amazon.com. Many blessings, Kim
