Warning---Proud Mama moment! To God be all the glory!

Friday, June 07, 2013

My daughter is now a published co-author of a children's book!

It is an ABC book about our county. They went with the racing theme because Tony Stewart of NASCAR is from here.

Last fall, Candice was taking her Early Literacy class in college and they decided to make this a class project. They divided up the alphabet and spent time researching, writing rhymes for each letter, editing, and taking photos around the county and of the city of Columbus, IN. Candice was in charge of the letters H and I. She wrote about Hope Heritage Days (our local 3-day festival) and Irwin Gardens (renowed gardens open to the public from the family that started Cummins engine company)

It has been quite a week for our daughter...she got her first career-related job offer and acceptance (preschool teacher) and her (collaborative effort) book was released!

As her homeschool mom from 2nd-12th grades, this week has been so rewarding and I am truly enjoying the fruit of my labor and praising God for what He has done in her, with her, and through her inspite of her dyslexia and inspite of me and my weaknesses and my many previous health issues while homeschooling her. God is so good all the time!

    How amazing, Heidi! Homeschooling is quite difficult and I get so wrapped in "MY" capabilities and it has nothing to do with me!!! That is quite an accomplishment!

You have every right to be proud of her. What a wonderful accomplishment!! As I reading teacher, I would have loved to have a book that boys would enjoy reading. Not enough of those. Girls are so much easier, princesses, pony's puppies, you name it boys not so much.
