Book Motivation

Leafy Seadragon which will show up in my upcoming book “The Fifth Day Sea Creatures”

“Taste and see that the Lord is good,

blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.” (Psalm 34:8 NIV)

Well… Looks like my book proof has not showed up yet.  While I continue to wait for the proof, I thought I would talk about the motivation behind making my book.

I have enjoyed creating artwork my entire life.  I am sure my mom still has many of my earlier works from when I was a youngster.  When it came time for me to choose a career, I never thought about art being a viable career option.  I ended up choosing construction management.  While working in construction, I met a lot of interesting people one of whom ended up becoming my wife.

The Lord works in mysterious ways!

My wife, also an artist, encouraged me to continue with my art.  I ended up returning to college and taking a few art courses at the University of West Florida.

Every since I graduated college, I have come up with many children’s book ideas.  I did not feel that any of those ideas glorified God the way He should be.   After the birth of my daughters I felt inspired to complete a children’s book which I could introduce biblical concepts to my young girls.

It has taken a lot of time, but through God’s help, I have come up with a great book idea.  In this pro evolution world, the days of creation lend themselves very well to being created into children’s books.  My hope is that these book will serve as a gateway for christian parents to introduce creation to their little ones.

Thank you for listening to my story.  I am very excited about receiving my proofs.  As soon as my proof is reviewed, I will make the book available to everyone.  Follow me here at my blog or on facebook for more book updates.
