I was driving home from Jackson’s speech therapy appointment when the idea hit me. There was no burning bush or talking donkey, but I knew it was God prompting.
I had always wanted to write a children’s book but I hadn’t thought about that dream in a long time; until that day in the car when I heard Him whisper, write a book about a little boy on a journey to find his voice.
My son, Jackson, has a speech disorder called Apraxia. He knows what he wants to say, but simply can’t. His brain has a hard time getting the proper message to his mouth, lips, tongue and jaw. The words he wants to say, literally get stuck in his brain. He’s been in intense speech therapy since he was 18-months-old.
I knew without a doubt I was hearing God correctly. I went inside, put Jackson down for a nap, and wrote the entire first draft of Jackson Finds His Voice within an hour.
Today I’m hosting Three Word Wednesday and would love for you to continue reading my story here.
