How I unexpectedly wound up writing a children’s book

  1. So awesome! Excited to learn more about your book. I was five when I prayed the “Sinner’s Prayer”, too. Since then, I’ve come to this decision: We call Jesus our Lord and our Savior. For me, it’s a two part process… part one, a momentary decision, is all we can achieve in our original sinful state– the call out for a Savior, most often in a hell-avoidance measure, to use your phrase. Part two is the life-long process of forming our relationship with our Lord– it’s as big a part of what we call “faith” as “getting saved.”

  2. From Texan pianist to “Dutch” children’s author…hmmm. I knew you when…which begs the question: If I have an “in” with the author, can I get a copy of the book faster?? 🙂
    But seriously, fantastic news!!

    1. Excellent questions! 🙂 We’re still working on a final title and release date. If I had to guess, I’d say late 2014 or early 2015…but that’s just a guess at this point. I’m in the process of finalizing the manuscript right now…

  3. My twin Godchildren love your book and they are only 2 1/2. Nick’s pictures are so full of Bible stories that I don’t think it has been read the same way as we always end up on detours into other stories, which is wonderful. Thank you both.

  4. I’m a Christian, and honestly don’t understand this idea that our children should one day accept my faith as their own. Faith is a personal matter, and imo, we shortchange our children when we try and define Truth for them. My faith is radically different from my parents, and while it would be neat, I don’t want my children to feel like they need be Christians just because mommy is(or Wiccan because other Mommy is) I want children to explore and find that which appeals to their most innate self, not that which appeals to them because we mold them in such a way that they have blinders to other ideas.

    I doubt that is what you were going for, but the language used in your post unfortunately gives me that impression.
