Coming this week: The Littlest Frost Fairy
I cannot tell you how many revisions I have done, or how many hours I have poured into this book. And I thought children's books were supposed to be easier to write! For goodness sake, this is a 30 page picture book, how hard can it be? Just because it is s...

Labels and Gender Identity: a Bible-based Guideline for Helping your Child Understand
