1. Where did you get the idea for this series (Gabby, God’s Little Angel)?
The idea came one day when I was reading this verse in Matthew’s gospel,
“Take heed that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that in heaven their angels always see the face of My Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 18:10 NKJV)
I love this truth that even for children who face tremendous struggle here on earth, they have an angel watching over them who lives in the presence of the Father.
2. How does this series differ from your other series for girls, Gigi God’s Little Princess?
The Gigi series was written out of a desire for little girls to know that they are loved and treasured by God no matter what they look like on the outside. Most of us don’t look like the typical Disney princess but the truth is far greater, we are beloved daughters of the King of Kings.
This new Gabby series is to show how great God’s care and protection over His children is. There’s a lot of “angel” stuff in the market place but scripture teaches that angels never invite attention to themselves, they always point back to God.
3. What do you hope your young readers take away from this story?
I pray that they will begin to understand that their life matters to God and that He sends angels to watch over them and protect them. I pray too that their would be the beginning of an understanding of the spiritual realm and no matter what they can see with their eyes or hear with their ears, God is with them.
