Other than writing short stories when I was a kid I’ve never tackled fiction.
What would you like for our readers to know about you personally?
My writing developed out of my passion for studying and teaching God’s Word. I love teaching and discipleship, on a large scale with my writing and on a smaller scale in my home church. I serve on our church staff as Minister of Adult Education. I have a Masters in Christian Education.
Tell us about your family.
My husband, Wayne, and I have been married for 26 years. We were both born and raised in Louisiana and met at Louisiana Tech University. Wayne is in the oil industry so his job has kept us moving. We’ve lived in south Louisiana, Wyoming, West Texas (twice), Alberta, and Houston. We have three children – two daughters and a son. Our oldest daughter was married this summer so now we also have a son-in-law. We are definitely a dog-loving family. We have four all together!
Have you written other nonfiction books?
Yes, one other published Bible study.
What other books have you written, and where can the readers of the blog find them?
Before His Throne: Discovering the Wonder of Intimacy with a Holy God is a nine-week study through the book of Malachi to discover the joy and blessing of fearing God. The study can be purchased on the publisher’s website (http://www.newhopepublishers.com/ ), Amazon, and Christianbook.com. Many Christian book stores will have them in stock, but if they don’t they can order it in.
Do you have any other books in the works right now?
Yes. I have a couple of Bible studies and a devotional book pending.
Where on the Internet can the readers find you?
http://www.kathyhoward.org/ is my main website
http://www.godstruthrevealed.org/ is under development and will be dedicated to this new study. There will be leader helps, excerpts, resource tools and more.
What kinds of hobbies and leisure activities do you enjoy?
I used to love scrapbooking but that was before I got really busy writing. I exercise faithfully. I enjoy cooking, gardening, movies, and reading.
Why did you write the featured book?
This particular book developed out of a ministry to spiritual seekers. God kept bringing adults to our church who didn’t have any knowledge of the Bible. A few were brand new Christians, but most were just investigating spiritual things. After years of this ministry I had a good grasp of the questions they needed answered and the information they needed in order to make a decision about Jesus Christ.
What do you want the reader to take away from the book?
Readers will have a solid understanding of the basic and most important beliefs of the Christian faith. More importantly they will know why Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
Kathy, thank you for spending this time with us.
