COMING TO A SHELF NEAR YOU…

I am currently working on getting a number of books published and can’t wait until they make their way onto shelves and I can officially share them with you! 

In the meantime, I would love to give you a glimpse into the variety of projects I’m working on—in hopes that you start getting excited about them, too! Here are just a few pitches for the children’s books I have written and am in the process of trying to get published. 

 

TITLE: CHEER UP, CHARITY GREEN! 📣
GENRE: Lower Middle-Grade Chapter Book (ages 7-10)

Charity Green is a spunky eight-year-old with an affinity for athletics, and according to her mom, she’s always been a mover and a shaker. Which is why when her parents (who just opened their own coffee shop) tell her that it costs too much for her to do cheerleading this year, Charity decides to take matters into her own hands and earn the money herself. Inspired by her dad’s entrepreneurial example, she must come up with an enterprising idea that will make her enough money before the season starts. Fortunately, she has to look no further for business ideas than her best friend and lovable German Shepherd, Timber.

Unfortunately, her first idea is a flop—much like the new cheerleader move she’s trying to learn—jeopardizing Charity’s dream of becoming a cheerleader this year. She’s running out of ideas while time is ticking away, and it feels like nothing is working out! She must decide whether her dream is worth all the disappointment and frustration—especially when doing so leads her to the smelliest business plan of all!

 

TITLE: STRONGER: HOW GOD STRENGTHENS US THROUGH THE STORMS OF LIFE 💪
GENRE: Picture Book, Christian (ages 4-8)

The natural world is a place of beauty and wonder. A child learns that firsthand as he cares for his newly and lovingly planted tree—until he watches as it is battered by a harsh storm. Distraught, his grandfather teaches him an important lesson: God uses hard things in nature—including storms, hurricanes, wildfires and even floods and volcanoes—to actually benefit his beloved creations. And God does that for us, too, using some of our greatest struggles to build up our faith and refine us into the strongest versions of ourselves.

Inspired by James 1, this narrative non-fiction weaves in STEM elements with an inspired life lesson for readers, young and old.

 

TITLE: AIDEN & AVA’S ADVENTURES INTO THE GARDEN 🌹
GENRE: Early Reader/Chapter Book, Christian (ages 6-9)

Seven-year-old Ava’s favorite place to play is in the garden in her backyard with her twin brother, Aiden. Until he gets hurt while playing and storms off—leaving Ava alone and hurt, as well. In her frustration, she cries out that “It’s not supposed to be like this!” That turns out to be truer than she ever imagined when she finds herself transported to a new garden that gives her a glimpse into how things are supposed to be and God’s plan to fix everything—and take away all pain for good.

Inspired by the new creation described in Revelation 20, this story paints a firmly Biblical picture of what will happen when Jesus returns and brings the new heavens with him to renew all of creation—including us! 

 

TITLE: MY SUNDAY SABBATH SONG 🎁
GENRE: Picture Book, Christian (ages 4-8)

Rediscover and celebrate the Sabbath the way God always intended: as a gift given to us to enjoy—even as Christians! This lyrical read-aloud for the entire family will change the way you think about this age-old practice  and inspire readers to get excited about this discipline in a new way by focusing not on what Sabbath is not (rules, legalism, etc.) but on what it is: a day to remember God’s creating and Christ’s redeeming work, to draw closer to God and remember his generosity toward us, a chance for us to rest and even serve others as we reflect God’s abundant love to the world around us. Each of these elements is woven in through memorable verses and refrains that are meant, like a song, to swirl around and stick in the reader’s head each week as they partake in their own, unique Sabbath celebration.
