Three Christian Writers Conferences!

by Catherine Jacobs on 06/19/21

If you are interested in receiving news about the upcoming books or model progress, please add your name to my email or newsletter. 

 

September 2020. I had a bone in my left wrist removed. After many months of painful therapy documented on my catheriejacobs6999 Instagram account, I am now able to draw again. I am still working to be able to sculpt models again soon as well. 

 

In the mean time, 

Lord willing, I am planning on attending three different Christian Writers conferences this summer.

 

Why am I going? I am seeking representation by an agent for publishing a 32 page children’s picture book titled “I Grew”. I have written it at a second-grade reading level. 

“I Grew!”

500-word picture book for ages 5 and up. 

Answers how babies grow in their mother’s womb. 

Shows the cute, cuddly, bopping, kicking and slurping process. 

Written for families with a baby on the way and curious siblings.

Connects this process to Jesus’ birth to inspire all ages.

Soft pastels radiate the warmth of the womb, wrapping 

readers with the wonder of God’s plan for each precious pre-born.

 

It’s a pre-nativity story telling how the creator of the universe put on flesh cell by cell to dwell among us. You grew in a similar way. You too were divinely designed, and fearfully and wonderfully made. You are made in God’s sacred image. Curious children can learn; when life begins, when the heart first beats, when they could suck their thumb and roll over and even when they could eat, drink, pee, and poo.

 As of today, I have plans to meet take continuing sessions on self-publishing and marketing. 

 

Hopefully by the end of the summer I will have either agent representation, a publisher or the knowledge to write/illustrate and publish my own children’s books.

Pickles

by Catherine Jacobs on 07/23/17


Have you ever been in a pickle? I have. Lately I have been in a lot of pain. So much that I have not been able to make these dolls. I want to but I have been diagnosed with carpel tunnel syndrome and arthritis. Thats why my hands have had shooting burning pains in them. It often brings tears to my eyes. So what about making these dolls. I ask myself should I continue in pain or try to get help?
Well I have tried to get help and so far I am not able to do that. 
It's a real Pickle, for me anyway. 

So I was in church and the pastors wife does our children's church.  This past week she talked about pickles. Yep you heard it right. Pickles! 

They come in lots of varieties, sour, dill, sweet, bread and butter etc. 

So anyway, her point was that were are often in a pickle as we go about our days, troubles and stress come all around us and tempt us to give up and stop doing the things we know we should do for the Lord. 

 We are reminded in Psalms 18:6 KJV
In my distress I called upon the Lord, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears. 

So this week my hands feel a little better. The braces I sleep in and work in are starting to help the swelling go down. Please pray the pain will go away.  
 
Remember this: Pickles are under pressure but they are always well preserved.

 God will help those who believe in Him, He will preserve you in times of trouble. Read the entire chapter to see how. 

Whats your favorite kind of Pickle? Mine is dill. Have a great week! Be sweet if you get into any pickles.
