A new book for Junior High ages has been in the works a while, but the family is busily moving to Colorado. This new book is about a young man whose heart is pressed about the meaning of love. It's set in the 90's during Kurt Cobain & the Smashing Pumpkins. When video games kept a generation indoors, yet skateboarding was healthy way to travel.  Keep checking back.

In How Do We Know It's Jesus?   This six-year-old wants to know how people in the Bible were sure about who God is.  Children ask great questions. What a joy to hear of their interest in spiritual things. And praise God for putting that desire there. 

Kathy Banks is an author and self-publisher. 

Twenty years ago, Kathy authored Real Home School,

30 Proverbs For A Mother’s Heart (poetry), and

The Real Home School Handbooks. Available is her children's book, "Momma, Do You Remember When You Asked Jesus Into Your Heart?"

Her artist daughter is the illustrator for all the author's books. 


These stories are developed from the author's children asking these questions.  Isn't it amazing how years of Sunday School and just good lessons at home can bring about what we parents are always looking for:  our children's interest in faith? How wonderful God is to start the flame of faith and for us to be used of Him in those we love the most. 

Kathy lives in California with her husband of 39 years.
