Jen Anderson is a Christian wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, employeeand now author. The daughter of an alcoholic, she knew what it was to experience fear. When she was only 11 years old her Dad left home, and her fear changed to what it was going to be like to grow up without a father. Two years later her life changed when at Teen Ranch she gave her life to the Lord. This young faith grew and flourished over the next 25 years and has seen her through the many challenges of this life. Children's ministry is her passion and she loves to talk to children about Jesus, faith, and trust in God. She is an active member of Menai Anglican Church. Her favourite pastime is being with her family and enjoying her two girls, Courtney (11) and Katelyn (8).
Says Jen: "As a parent, Scripture and Sunday School Teacher, I have found many adults believe that children are too little to develop a concrete understanding of what it means to be saved and live a Christian life. However, I practically found the opposite to be the case when teaching kids and helping them to both accept Jesus and share Him with other children. I have found that often we can look upon our children's faith from our own experience, especially if we are saved later in life. However, both of my girls made a decision to follow Christ at the ages of 4 and 6 years and to my delight are working at following Him, living a godly life and evangelizing other children. It is this journey and reflections on my childhood that prompted me to look at developing this series of fun and interactive stories that helps build godly character and win kids for Christ."
Jen's website is www.francythefirefly.com and she attends churches regularly to discuss fear, her story, and how the God we love is greater than all of our fears.
