Well the family has been in Colorado for almost a year! What an excruciating trip to move several states over. But all moved in and a more difficult challenge:  covid19 and our state's response was chilling; very destructive.  By now, most have made it through, but how many of you suffered overwhelming things? I pray for those who've lost savings, careers, business. You who've had devasting hurt, anxiety and brokenheartedness. I pray for you regularly. Yes, I really do.

O God, You alone can heal Your people.  And as always, 2 Chronicles 7:14 is God's plea and help. If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.


My new book for Junior High ages has been in the works a while, and will be put off a while longer. 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 Colorado with her husband of 40 plus years.
