About the Book

Bud lived in the community of Zafra named in the book. It’s hard to believe Bud’s life was actually true, because it was more like a fairy tale…” denoting something regarded as resembling a story in being magical, idealized or extremely happy.” Bud’s story is the same concept; however, it’s TRUE! It’s magical in the sense that Bud believed God, and in believing, His power and glory was always at Bud’s request.

Most fairy tales end with…” they lived happily ever after.” Bud did.

God’s sovereignty oozed out of Bud. His Son told us not to worry about what we should eat, drink, wear, etc. God said He knows what we need before we ask. He sustains, protects and leads us in the paths of righteousness. He promises His goodness and mercy will follow us all the days of our lives!

About the Author

Dr. Cynthia Ann Perkins grew up in the southeastern corner of Oklahoma in the Kiamichi Mountains. There, her family were missionaries in a small community called Zafra. Bud was a part of her family both personally and church. Her beginning education was in Zafra’s one-room schoolhouse, the same place where Bud had gone several years earlier.

At the age of eighteen, she left for college, where she met her husband, Kent Perkins. They both embraced the ministry. After marriage, she received her PhD in Music Education from the University of Oklahoma. Cynthia and Kent have been missionaries in both Nicaragua and the Kiamichis. Cynthia has taught music to all ages in public schools, colleges, and churches. She has also been the Christian education minister in the churches where her husband has been called to minister.

Cynthia has been published by Standard Publishing Company and numerous community newspapers and magazines. STILL WATERS, her first book, is a 365 daily devotional study over the Twenty-third Psalm. Cynthia is a speaker and singer for any churches, groups or organizations.
