Hello everyone! It’s so good to have you here today, on Moments Spent with God and I pray that your day will truly be blessed by the hand of God and that we all will experience His presence, as we spend this time together!
Since today is Friday…I thought that we would have a casual visit. It’s been a very busy week for me; but I have to tell you…God has been so good to me!!
As some of you already may have noticed on the front page of this website…I’m about to have another book published, within the next week, which is titled…“The Wilderness Gang; Loving Others Who Hurt Us Coloring Story Book.” God seems to be once more placing me on a brand new path and this path seems to be leading me down a road, where the ministry will expand and not only reach out to adults but children too.
As I think back on my own childhood and how much I had to overcome later in life; it is now my deep desire to inspire and encourage children…especially in this world we now live in. It seems like there are children that are being abused…bullied and even persecuted in other foreign countries; so with God’s help, I have compiled a coloring story book that will help to teach children how to show love to those who come against them…and what can truly be the result of loving others, rather than having revenge.
I have to say…this book has been a lot of fun and has made me feel like a child again! It’s been great…working with my husband Keith, who assisted me with the illustrations in the book, along with Bawar, my assistant, who has one of the best imaginations, when it comes to children.
If you haven’t checked out the book page…the idea for the wilderness gang actually came from a stuffed moose that sits in my office windowsill…which we actually call “Mr. Moose.” The other characters in this wilderness gang are comprised of Mrs. Raccoon…Professor Squirrel and Mr. Crow, which are birds and animals that have been seen in our backyard. Little did I know; that joking around about these animals…and giving them these names, would actually turn into a coloring story book.
As I wrote the manuscript for the book and as I worked with Keith and Bawar…I could see the hand of God at work…right along with us. I have never…in my 15 years of serving God, seen a book come together so easy and beautiful. I thank God, for all that He has done and how this book will be used to encourage and inspire children everywhere!
Also…just to let you know…this won’t be the end of “The Wilderness Gang” because we are also planning to compile a book that will allow these animals to tell the true meaning of Christmas to children, as they will be traveling to the place where Jesus was born. To top that off, we are also planning on doing a coloring book or two, for you adults, which will have an inspirational quote, at the bottom of each page…so you see, I’m back to being a very busy woman for God…but I love it!
You know…it was really nice chatting with you today and we’re going to have to do this more often. Keep your eyes open, for this brand new book, which should be ready for sale, around June 9th. For now…take care and have a great day and I’ll talk with you soon!
Blessings on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
