For Deborah Burch, a graduate of Kendall College of Art and Design in Grand Rapids, Michigan, life has been a series of miracles. Writing a book is just one more of them. "The words of this book came to me in a dream several years ago," she explains. "And I knew that I was supposed to write it."
But, with five children at the time and a full-time job at an artist's studio, she wasn't sure how to fit it into her busy life. So, she put the poem in a drawer.
This is certainly not the first book that was inspired by a late-night dream or that was shelved for a lengthy period of time, but the series of events that led to its publication may indeed fall under the classification of a miracle.
God's Greatest Gift is "all about love," she says. "Each of our six children has a page of the book dedicated especially to them."
Deborah Burch is a graduate of Kendall College of Art and Design in Grand Rapids, Michigan. She has five children and is pursuing her passion as an author/illustrator full time with the support of her husband Dan.
