Sometimes we automatically know our call and other times we discover it through reoccurring circumstances. I have always known I loved art. However, after countless times of being asked to illustrate children’s books over the years (and turning it down 99% of the time), I started thinking about it more seriously. Also, I have personally written about 10 books over the years that were on my ‘someday I may get around to this’ shelf. This past year something shifted in my heart and I felt the call and the purpose of writing and illustrating children’s books!
What shifted? Having kids of my own I am very selective of what I allow in their little minds at this age. I have seen the things this generation is being exposed to in our culture on a daily basis and it has grieved my heart. There is a need for kids to learn the things of God- that they are loved, that they were created as they are meant to be, that they have purpose and value. This is what fueled my vision to become my purpose!
