Kate Battistelli’s “Growing Great Kids” helps parents grow, too!

Ok. I have to be honest. I am a Francesca Battistelli fan so when I came across Kate Battistelli’s book Growing Great Kids I immediately made the mother-daughter connection and knew that I just had to read it.

Boy am I glad I did!

Of course, considering Francesca’s witness for Christ and her talent, there is no doubt that she must have been raised by awesome parents, right? She definitely was, but the connection is much, much deeper.

In Growing Great Kids, Kate Battistelli offers a large part of herself, her family, and her walk with God to illustrate what it means to be a Christian parent. She goes a step further and, in my opinion, has now left a written legacy that we (other Christian parents) can follow to be the example God intends for us –not just as parents but as people in this world.

Kate advises readers to “partner with God to cultivate His purpose in your child’s life” and that is exactly what I will recommit to do.

I won’t give away too much, but… I especially love the “Questions to Think About” where we readers can look deeper inside ourselves to question our role, our application of biblical principles, and the importance of Christ in our families. Two specific questions that hit home (and might for you, as well) are: “what are the absolutes in your house?” and “what are you modeling?”.

As a Christian mother, it is important that I make the absolutes clear and to model Christ’s example in every area of my life. Certainly, I fail in many areas, but as Kate lovingly illustrates: we go through “seasons” and it is in the myriad of seasons that we grow both as parents and Christians, and it is also in the seasons that we learn to interpret God’s seasons in our child’s life.

To quote Shelly Ballestero, author of Beauty By God, “Growing Great Kids [is] an inspiration to all who have the privilege of raising God’s children”.

Thanks, Kate, for allowing your readers to get to know you and your family on a more personal level and, most of all, for reminding parents just how important our roles are in molding today’s child to become tomorrow’s Godly adult.

It’s officially ready; An Agent’s Point of View

After a mental wrestling match with the autovetter, it seems that I passed the final review (translates to no errors) and An Agent’s Point of View went live on Smashwords yesterday.

I watched and browsed other authors and agents before deciding to give Smashwords a try. So far, I’m liking what I see. I’ll definitely keep you posted as time progresses.AAPOV_2012_Cover

As for An Agent’s Point of View, readers (targeted to writers, new and published) can get a brief, inside look at the author-agent relationship while learning what to (and not to) do when dealing with agents (and editors).

I like the brevity of my book and certainly have plans for an extended version possibly for next year. I want this book to be my voice (my Southern drawl doesn’t’ come through, however!) and to give readers the feeling that they are engaged in a conversation with me. If you have ever watched crime drama The Closer on TNT (you know…they know drama!), imagine Brenda Leigh Johnson’s (played by Kyra Sedgwick) drawl coming from this agent’s mouth. Well, maybe toned down just a tad! There could be a subconscious connection since Brenda and I have the same middle name. Who knows. Anyway, my voice is there. Readers can discern the rest!

Go on now. I’m done! Go get your copy. I have some calls to make and I need to stay on schedule. You know, that whole practice-what-you-preach thing.
