About the Book

Does your Christian life need a spark or challenge? Have you experienced sadness, loneliness, or lack of motivation recently? Following Jesus’ time-honored tradition of parable telling, author Kathryn Ann Ransom helps you address those needs with Biblical reflections on everyday life situations, both the positive and the challenging.

In Ransom Notes, she offers 101 short, devotional essays that encourage you to pause, reflect, smile, and review your own life while drawing you closer to the Lord. The essays share stories of humans doing exciting things for the kingdom, providing meaning to your life. Ransom bases the narratives and accompanying challenges on examples of God’s people both growing and making mistakes.

Often humorous, the stories included in this collection inspire you to become a living example of God’s love for others. Ransom Notes encourages you to grow in your understanding and appreciation for Christian living and draw closer in your relationship with the Lord.

About the Author

Kathy is an educator and Christian leader. She is actively involved in her community, including as a trustee for the Illinois Symphony Orchestra, the local public television station WSEC, and Lincoln Christian University. Traveling, golf, and classical music help identify this eighty-plus-year old author. “Life is an adventure,” explains her enthusiasm for constantly searching for new challenges, e.g., writing her first book at the age of eighty-three.
Kathy graduated from Southwest Missouri State and the University of Illinois. Her entry into the world of education began in a fourth-grade inner-city classroom, followed five years later as a consultant for a major school publisher, and then the coordinator of the reading and English program for Springfield Public Schools. Following retirement, Ms. Ransom worked with teachers and school districts from the coast of California to Long Island, New York, as well as doing considerable adjunct teaching for several area colleges. During that time she also served on the board of the International Reading Association, including the role of president.
She is active with the area Christian service camp, a “worker bee” for a local group for senior adults (Academy of Lifelong Learners), and other community service groups. Life is a joy when busy and helping others remains a constant bottom line philosophy of her life.
