OCALA, Fla. – February, 2022
Goodness on Deposit - The Ginormous Tiny Idea” is the first in a series of books which promote a child's awareness of other's needs and demonstrates practical ways for children to make a difference in the life of a friend, neighbor or family member. It is a sweet interactive story which teaches children, through M.T.’s journey, to identify acts of kindness that need doing and record them in their Goodness on Deposit bankbook which is outlined in the book. M.T., our 8 year old main character very much admires his mother because she is kind and loving to others and possesses what he believes to be a "heart of gold". A small seed of an idea begins to percolate in M.T.’s head. He has a vision where he, along with his buddies, would open up a Goodness on Deposit Bank where children like himself would deposit their good deeds until they reach a balance which would earn them a heart of gold.
About the Author:
I am a first time published author who has had a love affair with words and those who weave them into a storytelling format for as long as I can remember. I imagine it can be attributed to my father having worked for a book publisher when I was a child. Occasionally he would come home with a hard covered book for me to read or to gift to a friend for their birthday. I loved handling the books and flipping through the pages, much as an adult loves that "new car" smell. I recognized early on that words have the ability to be both powerful and sublime and how we wield them can make a huge impact in our lives as well as the lives of others.
GOODNESS ON DEPOSIT is a labor of love which was conceived many years ago but never acted on. It was actually the answer to a silent prayer to the Holy Spirit when a dear friend suffered a serious illness which would ultimately take his life. I remember thinking how important it was to identify and embrace one's purpose in life before it was too late. I prayed for direction and enlightenment to humbly recognize what my life was meant to contribute. The idea and words for Goodness on Deposit flowed immediately and effortlessly as a result of my prayer. It is my belief that God tasked me in some small way to reach young minds and instill a sense of kindness and duty toward others which can take root while they are young and find a resting place in their hearts throughout their lives.
