Can one simple verse change your life? It did for us.

It happened one morning when we encountered Psalm 23 and wanted to write a book featuring the beloved Psalm. But we didn’t think it would work as a children’s book. Could we write a book for adults?

After writing more than 35 children’s books in the general market, we weren’t sure we could do it. Children’s book: 75 pages. Adult book: 275 pages! Writing for the general market: no problem. Writing for the Christian market: new territory!

But the Psalm inspired us, and we knew with God as our shepherd we could do anything. We moved forward. Two years later we signed a contract for our first adult Christian novel, The Shepherd’s Song. And it all started with Psalm 23.

Our journey with Psalm 23 continues with our latest release, The Lord is Their Shepherd, Praying Psalm 23 for Your Children.


Psalm 23
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside still waters.
He restores my soul.
He leads me in paths of righteousness
for His name’s sake.
Even though I walk through the
valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil, for you are with me
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me
You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
