Success Stories

Marissa Gibson, Fun 4 All Activity book

At just 9 years old, Marissa Gibson (Judy’s Granddaughter) created her very own activity book titled Fun 4 All and became an International Bestselling author.
She not only choose which activities she wanted to include based on what she thought other children would be interested in, she used her knowledge of what children her age liked to help create the book cover. She also learned about the different elements that go into producing a book and wrote her own dedication, acknowledgements and about the author sections. Not only does Marissa have something she can always be proud of, but it gave her self-confidence and self-esteem a boost. She loves being asked to sign her book and she made a few new friends along the way.

What Types of Stories are Published?

Stories that are chosen to be published are stories that engage the reader and leave them feeling up-lifted. They can either have a beautiful message to share or just be a wonderful story from the heart. Publications do not necessarily reflect the authors personal journey with adversity.
