Trillia Newbell and Dr. Danny Huerta discuss the value of our celebrating racial and cultural diversity as an expression of God’s calling upon us to share His message of love and reconciliation through Christ to people of every nation, tribe, and language, and offer parents practical guidance for celebrating as a family.

Join Us for an Aspiring Authors Workshop

AspiringAuthors_Update-01As many of you may know, I have been working as an Acquisitions Editor* at Moody Publishers now for a little over a year. It has been one of the most rewarding jobs I’ve ever had. I love meeting authors and developing ideas. I enjoy the ministry I get to do whether through serving other writers or analyzing the landscape of the Church and her needs, or thinking of a book that will serve generations to come. It’s been a real joy. Along the way, I’ve also encountered aspiring authors with a lot of questions. That’s why I’m excited to invite you to our Aspiring Authors Workshop!

Here’s a wonderful opportunity to learn and for Moody Publishers to get to know you!
Join Drew Dyck, Randall Payleitner, and me in this 90-minute virtual workshop event on Saturday, August 14, at 9:00 am (CST). You’ll learn about the publishing process at Moody Publishers, hear all about publishing from the writing process to best practices for proposals, and more. There will also be a time for Q&A for you to ask your burning questions.
Here’s what is unique about this workshop: we aren’t only looking to engage with those interested in learning, but I am praying that we will meet future Moody authors. As a result, space is limited, so sign up now.

Creative God, Colorful Us Interview: Palmer Williams on Children and Disability

Creative God, Colorful Us Interview: Palmer Williams on Children and Disability

One of my desires in writing Creative God, Colorful Us is to help kids of all shapes, sizes, colors, and abilities learn about their Creator God and learn how to love Him and love one another. Over the past few weeks, I’ve received notes from parents expressing their gratefulness for including text and images that their child with a disability might relate to. Recently, one of the precious children in my Creative God, Colorful Us videos has been so impacted by it, she’s been speaking more and has a greater sense of confidence. Only God could do that!

But I want to keep learning and growing here. So, I’ve asked a friend to help us.

Palmer Williams is an international human rights lawyer, mom of three, and founder of a school called King’s Academy. She also has paraplegia.

I’m delighted that my friend, Palmer, is here for this interview to help us today.

(Note: this video is a little glitchy and I freeze at times but you should be able to listen along when it’s frozen)

The Art of “Creative God, Colorful Us”

The Art of “Creative God, Colorful Us”

A children’s illustrated book is made beautiful by the illustrations! Kids come for the pictures stay for the words. I am grateful for Chase Willliamson and her work in Creative God, Colorful Us. Over the summer, Chase taught my daughter private art lessons. When it came time to find an illustrator, I knew I wanted to reach out to her. But she isn’t an illustrator! The Creative Director at Moody Publishers got creative and allowed me to ask her to paint the pictures inside Creative God, Colorful Us. I still don’t understand how he did it, but I am forever grateful because I knew that Chase would do an incredible job!

She did! It’s beautiful, and I’m so glad you get to meet her today.

Enjoy this interview with the young and talented Chase Williamson.
