Biographical and Professional Information

Gooding, mother, grandmother, and public speaker says "We are all just little children, no matter how old or wrinkled our bodies have become." That's why she answers the question, what age group is this book for, with the reply, "from three to one hundred and three." She also will tell you that as she prays the Lord has been giving her poems and pictures for several decades. Nancy goes on to say that for years she has felt that the Lord wanted her to publish these poems as children's books. Nancy has been a believer for more then half a century and her heart's desire has always been to inform everyone that God has an answer to every problem they could ever face. Nancy lost her son in a tragic accident in 1986. She found that when she went to God in desperation he would always direct her to a scripture or give her a rhyming thought that comforted her.
