As a kid, I was the class clown, out to get a laugh or some attention any way I could. I was labeled as obnoxious because I never knew when to sit still and when to listen. Teachers dreaded me!

In fifth grade, I wrote my first "book" — a story about myself and and my arch nemesis — and read it aloud to my class. The positive feedback I received helped me see myself and others in a different way. I realized I wanted to grow up to be an author and an illustrator.

WHAT ARE YOU THINKING? (ThoughtsAlive, 2010) and LOVE, HUGS, AND HOPE: WHEN SCARY THINGS HAPPEN (Familius, 2013) are two of the picture books I've illustrated. I also design products for creative play and license my art.

“Those who seek to follow the Son will do so even on a cloudy day.”
Lori Nawyn, Fill Your Day With Hope

“Today I am so grateful that God knows my heart.
Others may misunderstand my good intentions,
judge my words or deeds, find fault,
or blame what they truly do not understand.
But God knows my heart.
He knows I am learning, trying, endeavoring,
to be all He created me to be.”
Lori Nawyn

“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

“Childhood is the one story that stands by itself in every soul.”
Ivan Doig, The Whistling Season

“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind.”
Bernard M. Baruch

“You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.”
William W. Purkey

Thanks for the invitation to add as a friend. I'm delighted to make your goodreads acquaintance. I read your profile. From what you read and write, I see you're as beautiful on the inside as you are on the outside.
