Tell us a little about yourself. I'm the youngest of seven children and I grew up on a farm in northern Minnesota. I started writing when I was thirteen and had my first book self-published at seventeen. In addition to reading and writing, I love our family farm, coffee, brownies, a good movie and visiting with friends. My goal in writing, is that each of my books will not only entertain, but also impact the reader with a Biblical message.
What was your motivation behind this project? I got the original inspiration for MISSION OF A LIFETIME from a dream I had, but once I started writing it, it quickly changed and took on it's own story. Willie's struggle with guilt and fear woven throughout the story was a reflection of some of the things that God had been teaching me. When I started writing it, I knew I had to finish it. I knew that Willie's story of courage, faith, and forgiveness would inspire and help others.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I hope that when people read Willie's story, that they come away with a better understanding of serving God where ever He puts you. I hope that Willie's struggles can encourage others to accept the trials in their life and not let the pain hold them back. I hope that MISSION OF A LIFETIME encourages people to allow their struggles to push them forward into spiritual growth and victory.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? When I started writing MISSION OF A LIFETIME, I had no idea how much of Willie's story was connected with my own. The struggles Willie has with questioning why God allowed a tragedy in his life is a struggle that I've faced. As I prayed about MISSION OF A LIFETIME, and went through the weeks of editing and perfecting it, God taught me the same lesson that Willie learned. That God is good all the time, even when we can't see the purpose. God always loves us, and we can trust Him fully.
