The Inside Story of the Jackrabbit and The Tortoise Book Dedication

My second children’s book came out.  My  friend Sarah March drew this for me. She wrote one scripture for the hare and one for the tortoise. The verse for the hare is:  “Point out the way I must travel. I’m all ears before you. “Psalm 143:10.  The verse for the tortoise is : “It is God who arms me with strength. He makes my way perfect.” Psalm 18:32.

I dedicate this book to my friend and former caregiver Sarah March who inspired the idea for this story. Her words to me were, “Remember, the very same God who created the Jackrabbit is the very same God who created the Tortoise.” Thank you, Sarah. I have never forgotten those words. They have been very meaningful to me, as I’ve lived my life with cerebral palsy. Thank you for a fun and wonderful six years. Those six years were some of the best years of my life!
Also, I’d like to thank Jessica Frausto and Christina Danford for helping me edit the story and get it ready for the competition. Jessica, we sure had many laughs. It was fun listening to “Bob” on the computer. Christina, thank you for being an extra pair of eyes and catching the details.
Mom, thanks for teaching me to focus on what I can do rather than on what I can’t. You’ve been a great encourager for me in my dreams and in my writing. When I think of you, I think of Proverbs 31:18, where it says, “She sees that her trading is profitable, and her lamp does not go out at night” Thanks for taking care of me. I love our many adventures! You’re a special mother!
