When you use your dollars to purchase books, movies, or any other form of entertainment you influence the world. Our purchases of clean and inspirational work support authors who write well-told stories and inspirational books. Together, authors and readers can create change and make a statement. Light the world with books.
Every Thursday, I feature authors who are committed to writing clean fiction, like Calie Schmidt, the author of, The Drummer Boy, published by Cedar Fort. I asked Calie why she was committed to writing only clean or inspiring books. She said:
“My kids are the reason I am committed to write clean, inspirational books. I want there to be more content in the world that parents do not have to worry about. Also, I want my kids to understand that you can have standards and still be successful in the world.”
I asked Calie Schmidt to tell me a little about herself
“I am a stay-at-home mom who just started her writing career two short years ago. I have always had a love for the written word, but decided to really delve in starting with children’s books. I am a fantastic writer with rhymes, but knew I had more to say. I know what women want, especially SAHMs. They want a little bit of romance, adventure, and girl power where their power is truly recognized.’
“I have other children’s books scheduled for 2020/2021, as well as a YA (young adult) fairytale collection I am working on.”
About the book and great Christmas gift for kids!
Here we have a heartwarming tale of a young, poor shepherd boy, his life in the hills, and his encounter with Mary, Joseph, and the new baby Jesus. Upon meeting the Savior, he decides to give his only possession of any value, but he learns that physical things are not always the best gifts we can give. Walk the hills with the drummer boy and you will find the best gifts are sacrifice, service, and love.
