Welcome the the Sunday Bells website! In this very first blog post, I would like to share a little about how this venture began.
 
When the time came to retire from teaching in elementary school for 33 years, I had often wondered what I would do with the newfound gift of time. I pictured myself spending my days with closet cleaning, scrapbooking, and reading--all those things I had never quite found time to do during my working years.
 
 
But, in the back of my mind, I really felt the Lord asking, "What are you going to do for me?" On one sleepless night, the answer came. God gave me the idea of using my knowledge and experience from teaching young children who are just learning to read, and use it to write Christian books for them. There are not many Bible story books that are written in simple language that a young child can read independently, and that is what God is helping me to create.
 
 
Beginning a home business and learning how to self-publish has been a long process for me. Even though I had dealt with books for years, I really had no idea how one is actually made. Many times I have had to come back to my life verse for this project from Isaiah 42:16 (NIV): "I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth."
 
 
It is my desire that the Sunday Bells books will bring many blessings to you and the young readers in your life.
