During a medical leave, God spoke to Cheryl’s heart to continue the call He had on her life nearly 25 years prior, to teach and disciple children according to the Scriptures. However, this new chapter of life would be as a writer of children’s books, rather than a classroom teacher. At that moment, in obedience to her Father, God, Cheryl started writing. The Holy Bible as her inspiration, she excitedly began her pursuit of this new career. With rejoicing in her heart, she was living out the verse, “…weeping may remain for a night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.” (Psalm 30:5b) Launching a career as a writer, Cheryl creates colorful, thematic books bringing the truths of the Scriptures in a fashion that tug at a child’s heart.
