Do you remember that I mentioned starting my first non-fiction project a few posts back? In “Your Child Doesn’t Love God,” I talk about dealing with an ongoing behavior with one child, and feeling the call to write a booklet on the gospel, God’s love, and His greatness for preschool through young-elementary-aged children.
That booklet is complete! And will be on Amazon in a matter of days!
The Lord has really grown and stretched me through writing this 29-page, pocket-sized booklet, and I’m so glad I got the opportunity to write it! My husband helped immensely, and an amazing team of beta readers has critiqued the thing’s socks off 😛 until it’s shiny and as perfect as it can be. 🙂
An old California friend, and fellow Christian mom, also graciously offered her services to provide artistic touches throughout, and you can check out the whimsical watercolor artist, Kelli Hoekendorf, on her Facebook page here.
Here’s a sneak peek of some of the first pages of the booklet with her adorable art!
The booklet has been endorsed by fellow Christian non-fiction author, Bruce Ray:
“ASTOUND is a big concept (sanctification) simplified for little hands and little feet. In these few pages RJ Conte avoids the big traps of legalism and lawlessness and tells children (and their caregivers) that the way to become holy is by learning about God and loving him so much that you don’t want to displease him. Easy to read, but big ideas!”~Bruce Ray (pastor, police chaplain, author, and grandfather)
and by author, editor, and #WIPjoy creator, Bethany Jennings:
ASTOUND is packed with beautiful, thought-provoking doctrines
for young hearts to ponder, written in a way that makes them
easy and accessible for parents to discuss with their little
ones – Bethany Jennings (mother of 4, author, and editor)
Be watching for the announcement that the ebook version is available later on this week! (The paperback pocket version will be available in the following weeks.) Please be in prayer that God would use it for His glory!
Also please be in prayer for me. I will hit 38 weeks, in this pregnancy, on Tuesday. I’m getting over a cold, and am still wanting to attempt a VBAC after two c-sections. I’d love prayer for a safe delivery and healthy baby!
