Relief Notes: Encouraging Letters for Tough Times
Vanessa Fortenberry is a contributor to this book, which offers brief but relatable messages from people of faith who have overcome adversities. While struggling through the valleys of life, the 22 authors of this little 120-page anthology wants readers to know that they are not alone.
I enjoy writing for children and about children. These characters struggle at home, at school, and at play. However, they find comfort, love, patience, and understanding from their earthly guardians. Ultimately, they find strength and inspiration to overcome their personal conflicts.
Some of the challenges my characters encounter:
- Judgment by others
- Health issues
My works in progress include several children’s books, an inspirational short story, and a motivating project about reconnecting with God, family, and friends for adults. Look forward to these publications soon!
It’s a privilege to share my talents with my readers. God continues to bless me with gifts of writing, singing, and baking (my ministries). Therefore, I like to include “a little something extra” for my readers. So, one might find a song, poem, or a recipe at the end of one of my stories. Check out my “Ooey Gooey Butter Cake” recipe on my “Vanessa’s Recipes” page.
