Look what came today!!!!!


MY BOOK CAME TODAY FROM MY PUBLISHER!!!! I was so excited when I saw the box, WOW!! I can't believe I wrote a book! It's a Christian childrens book, titled "GOD MADE ME IN CHINA". It teaches that no matter if we look different from our family, or if our skin is a different color or even if we have a not so common name, God made each of us and HE loves all of us just the same. This book was truly a labor of love for my family. Franceska will not look like us, Astrud's name is not so common, we are truly a culturally diverse family but nonetheless God made us a family and he loves us no matter what!

My prayer for this book is not so much that I sell a thousand books, but that each book that is bought will somehow touch the heart of the family that buys it.

I will know more details next week about buying my book so I will keep all of you posted.

Thank you and God bless each of you and your famiies. Have a Blessed weekend.

Jewels of My Heart said...

Oh, my gosh Kristy,
That is wonderful! I am so happy for you and proud of you. The book sounds wonderful and oh, so true!
Good for you! I will definitely be getting a copy of your beautiful story.
I didn't know you wrote. I have aspired to write children's books for years. I am finally working on two right now and one has an adoption theme as well.
Oh, please share with me how you did it!
I know it will be a blessing to many families and to the children who read it and find comfort in the pages and to the children who read it and gain understanding of God's truth and what a miracle each and every child and family are.
Love,
D
