Story Behind the Book
"When looking over Multnomah's catalog, its clear that most men, women, parents, and pastors have access to many incredible authors. These authors provide teaching and tools to help with everything life seems to bring, and they remind readers of God's presence in the midst of it all. But adults aren't the only ones who need to know this!
"Emmanuel, 'God With Us'-what a wonderful truth to teach our children before they come face to face with life-and all its joys and tribulations! Through the books in the God Counts series, including the God Counts Bible, my hope is that parents will now have a fun tool to introduce their children to a loving God and all the miraculous stories of how He interacts with His children."

Mindy's gift for storytelling was further cultivated when she worked as an elementary school education assistant, and she has since taken classes in writing children's literature. Mindy and her husband are motivated by bringing God glory through their writing and musical talents. They make their home in New Jersey with their two cats, Jack and Charlie.
