Millie D’Costa

Millie D’Costa author and songwriter, has been busy writing songs about Jesus and publishing her children’s book, Heart Lessons. Here are some things you may not know about her:

I have so much to praise and thank God for.  He has shown Himself faithful to me in many different ways.  I was born in Dar-es-Salaam, Tanzania, and grew up in the Catholic faith.  I attended a Catholic school and learned about God.  I was baptized as a child, and received Holy Communion and Confirmation.  

When I was 15 years old I heard about the Lord from my sister who was working for a Pentecostal Missionary.  I argued a lot about many things, but secretly accepted Jesus into my heart.  I was also totally healed from asthma when an American missionary prayed over me.  Two years later I publicly acknowledged Jesus as my Lord and Saviour.  At the age of 19 I was filled with the Holy Spirit.  My mother was very sick at that time, and that was when she accepted the Lord.  After prayer she started getting better and was healed.  This was then that I really began to see the power of God in a mighty way.”

After teaching Sunday school for over 15 years, I saw the need for children to have more heart knowledge than head knowledge.  Many children could quote the scriptures, however, they did not know how to let the Word come alive in their daily lives.” … Millie D’Costa on writing her children’s book, Heart Lessons.

‘The Truth About You’ by Beth Graf

Pastor Beth Graf

‘The Truth About You’ by Beth Graf ~ “Our world is full of so much change and instant information but what our children truly need is to know the timeless truths that come from the One, True and Unchanging God. This book is a breath of fresh air in a world that pollutes their hearts and minds with negativity, lies and confusion. As an Elementary School Teacher, Pastor, Life Coach and Mom, Beth is passionate about imparting spiritual truths to children. While this book is geared for younger children (featuring beautiful, real-life photography of animals) the truths it contains is for all ages. It is simple yet profound, “identity-shaping” truths from God’s heart to yours.” 

The concepts in this book came from what Beth recorded as her children shared what they sensed from Him. Every thought from God in this book, is supported with wonderful, easy-to-read Bible verses to affirm they truly are from God’s heart. Aren’t you curious to know what their child hearts heard from Him?” ~ Amazon book page

You can purchase ‘The Truth About You’ by Beth Graf from our bookstore.

Glynis M. Belec, author

“Live Like You Are Living” is one of Glynis M Belec’s blog posts on her website and this one is about living life to the fullest and dying with a different perspective. In it, Glynis recounts a conversation with a dear friend who has recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer.

“It’s silly, but I was a little nervous to make the phone call. I mean, what do you say to someone whose husband died four months ago? To someone whose father died two months ago? To someone who was recently diagnosed with terminal cancer? Pancreatic cancer? “They can’t do anything for me” kind of cancer?” … continue reading

“I love writing short stories and devotions. One of my biggest joys is encouraging and making people smile when they read my work. I especially love to make children grin and am constantly inspired by their antics and curiosity. You can check out my children’s website… (I’ve got some cool challenges for some cool kids on there, too, and lots of information about my children’s books and workshops.)” … ~ Glynis

Anna Sklar on Life and Work in 2018

What better way to start the new year than with a devotional to study through The Lord’s Prayer?
A look back at 2018 for a very busy author, Anna Sklar, who writes Bible Studies, Devotionals, and nonfiction.

“I’ve been busy.

Not just when it comes to creating or updating or compiling books.

I got myself a part-time job and started a Master’s program too!

The job and the schooling are done from home, which is the only way it works for me.

And I’m grateful, SO GRATEFUL, for all that fills my days.

But I’m still finding the balance.”… read more of Anna’s blog

G. D. Talbot’s Interview with Jon Michael Lawrence

G. D Talbot recently interviewed Christian children’s author, Jon Michael Lawrence as he publishes his new book, The Lamb of God.

 

“…When I was younger I loved poetry and always wanted to publish a book of some sort. About a year ago one day God gave me a story to write which is called ‘Charlie’s Good Deeds’ where I use a rabbit named Felix and a horse named Charlie to teach children about ‘The Good Samaritan’ and about being generous. Since that book I have written 6 other children’s books and a poetry book to praise God…”
