THE SUNFLOWER FIELD
“It was 3 years ago that I began the journey with my first children’s book. I was 21 years old and I made the decision I was going to go to Africa for a mission trip. All the money for my journey was raised and at the same time I was packing up to leave Alabama and move back to Indiana.
One morning on my hour long commute to work I was praying to God and asking for a sign. Well He gave me one… the minute I got to work I ran to my computer and started jotting down what God spoke to me. He gave me a simple message along the lines of ‘tend to the seeds people plant in our hearts.’ Simple but overall it struck me very strongly and stayed with me through my trip to Africa. I wanted to speak to the church about it but the timing never lined up right… upon returning home I felt more lost than ever, I had things to unpack and life to figure out again.” -Kaitlyn Corsiglia
