Tell us a little about yourself. I am a wife and mother. I serve the Lord in various ministries inside and outside of my local church. I love teaching. Before retiring, my former occupation as a fourth grade school teacher was a daily fount of joy. My favorite subjects were the Language Arts.
What was your motivation behind this project? Is God Good? Who's Asking? almost "wrote itself" when one day it dawned on me that God really is good. The clarity and truth of the realization of this statement surprised me as I had been a Christian for many years and this truth should have long ago been settled in my heart.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? As I have realized from my own experience, although believers say God is good, we often do not live as though He is, or even that He can be trusted. So, despite what we say, our behavior often negates our declaration. I hope this book will deepen the belief of followers of God. In addition, I hope to encourage unbelievers to so believe and understand the goodness of God that it motivates them to seek to be transformed by His Spirit and to be made into His image.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? Due to a devastating circumstance as I was in the process of publishing, the thesis of my book was no longer an academic endeavor. I had to wrestle with my own trust in God. I had to determine whether I believed in the goodness of God.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? My favorite authors are Hannah Hurnard (many, but not all of her work), Hannah Whitall Smith, and especially, anything written by Andrew Murray.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: This is a good text for helping those new in Christ understand, to some extent, the nature of God and of humanity. Is God Good? Who's Asking? could also be equally effective in "Bible studies, or small group discussions, or sermon inspirations"* * Quoted from reader review.
