Writing this booklet is one of the items on my bucket list. I love to write, draw, and share the gospel in numerous ways. " Be A Strong Tree?" was a product of drawings and journal writing inspired by the events of 2020-2021 and several health challenges facing me, my family and so many others.
"The idea for this book started as a sermon. The events of 2020 – 2021 lead to thoughts of remaining strong when bad news and bad times surround us. Being strong like a tree can take on many levels. Writing this book moved me through various levels...Strength, Weakness, Repurpose, and Renewal. ?
ONE RESULT, IS THIS PROJECT.
Hopefully, it will enlighten and inspire others."
