Tell us about your book:
The Poor Snowman is an inspirational, faith-based children’s book that touches upon the beauty of forgiveness, friendship, and love. This warm-hearted tale follows a kind snowman trying to find acceptance in a world full of judgment. But, due to his poor appearance, he is pushed aside. Will he break down from being unwelcomed and unloved, or will his strong heart prove that he is worthy of love?
What inspired you to write your book?
I’ve always been obsessed with Christmas, so quite naturally my first book had to have a wintery theme. I’ve also always had a strong relationship with Jesus and wanted to glorify him with my artistic talents in any way I possibly could. God gave me the idea for the story and the illustrations and words simply flowed out like water. Or I should say like drifts of snow in a soft blizzard!
The most important moral of The Poor Snowman is to love others. If someone is outwardly poor, love them. If people judge you because they don’t understand who you are inside, forgive them and treat them with love. The story revolves around the verse 1 Corinthians 13:13 which emphasizes how great love is to not only Jesus but amongst each of us. Love will always have the strongest impact in the end and my story tells this.
What else would you like readers to know about you and your book?
Out of the four other books I have written in my Heavenly Storybook classic series, The Poor Snowman is the one that is dearest to my heart. Not only because it was my first published book, but because of the amazing message it has. I actually dedicated the book to my baby brother and babies alike to hope that he and others will grow up with loving hearts.
