As a mother of 3, Rhonda had looked for books to read to her kids about the Earth's origins that considered Biblical creation as well as scientific discovery. There were none to be found. Not a scientist by training, she was inspired to create a picture book after taking a course on the Earth’s origins with the Reasons to Believe Institute. This was the first time that she had heard a theory that valued both science and the Biblical account. So, she worked with a friend as an illustrator to create this book for younger children to consider the Creation Theory Model – valuing both scientific discovery and Biblical understanding. Rhonda now works as a non-profit director and shares an "emptying nest" with her husband in Pittsburgh.
