I am thankful for Christian writers. My bookshelves are filled with kid, tween, teen, women, and men's fiction in addition to tons of nonfiction books. I love reading books!
Christian writers have problems just like us. Today's guest, Chris Fabry wants to tell you about something that happened to him. Chris Fabry has written many books for kids and teens. I asked him to join us today and share a Thanksgiving moment. He shared this special story:
Please welcome Chris Fabry author of:
Christian teen and kid series
I had a dream to write when I was young, but I had no idea I could actually pay some bills doing it.
Then I met Jerry Jenkins at Moody Bible Institute. He said, “I can help you do this if you want, but it’ll be painful.”
Boy, was it ever. But I learned a lot and eventually Jerry and Dr. Tim LaHaye allowed me to team with them to help write the Left Behind: The Kids series. 40 books in all (I only wrote 36).
Fast forward to this year. My son, Colin, is 10. He has type 1 diabetes. It’s been an uphill health battle for the whole family after exposure to toxic mold.
Colin and his siblings couldn’t read—their eyes were affected by the toxic exposure. I can remember Kaitlyn crying because she couldn’t focus on the words. Now she’s finishing Christy Miller books faster than I can eat a slice of beef jerky.
What message would you like to leave Chris Fabry?
