A big thank you to everyone who voted for me in the Speaking Volumes Christian                                                        Book Awards 2014.

 

                                                     You will be pleased to know that I won!

 

                                                     It was a privilege to have even reached the children's category shortlist of just five                                                        titles that had been whittled down by a panel of experts from around 100                                                                      selected by the UK Christian book industry.

 

                                                     The awards ceremony was held on Tuesday 13th May at the Christian Resources                                                          Exhibition in Sandown Park.

   

                                                     The event was hosted by Paula Renouf (of Speaking Volumes), Pam Rhodes (of Songs of Praise fame) and Bob Hartman (children's author and storyteller).

 

                                                                                           In my acceptance speech I spoke of an encounter with 

                                                                                           God 26 years ago that not only gave me a

                                                                                           revelation of His love for me but also the fullness of His

                                                                                           life that He'd made available through Jesus.

 

                                                                                           With this came a passion to communicate these things  

                                                                                           to children and which I've striven to do ever since.   

                       

                                                                                           If you want to see the live stream recording of me

What next?

Well there's more where that came from, so I'm open to offers and open to opportunities.
