J.A. Reid has been story telling since her pre-teen days. As a young teen she wrote her first book, creating the illustrations. With a vivid imagination and love for reading, many of her stories have come from personal life lessons. Becoming a Christian at age 12, she was active in a Christian youth group called “Youth Ranch.” She stayed active in ministry, worked as a youth ministry secretary for a number of years, was a youth counselor, and helped lead worship music. Raising three teenagers of her own and being a mother to seven exchange students has opened the door for more opportunities to enrich her life with youth. Her love for the Lord and desire to see young people know Him and His solutions to life’s problems is the major factor that led her to write this book.
