What I was really looking for was a devotional that would go through one book of the Bible at a time. And one that would train my little guy in how to do Bible study. Of course, I also wanted it to be engaging and easy enough to actually maintain. But also one that was deep enough that it would plant deep roots in his heart (and maybe even minister to mom and dad while we do it).
When I couldn’t find what I was looking for I decided to just write my own. I wrote about twenty devotions on Paul’s letter to the Colossians, took it to Staples, and turned it into a little devotional for him and gave it to him for his birthday.
After going through these devotions with my own son and listening to the frustrations of other parents I decided to work towards making this curriculum available to other parents. But I also wanted to make sure that the quality was something that compared to the quality of the other devotionals. So I got in touch with a professional artist and a graphic designer. I’ve also been blessed with a few great editors that have devoted their time. And I’ve even got a great writer to do the Foreword (maybe). But I need your help. I cannot get this project off the ground without proper funding to pay for the artist, graphic designer, advertising and other needs.
Risks and challenges
The most difficult part of self-publishing is getting the word out on your project. Thankfully, I have a broad enough platform and a few helpful connections that this should not be too difficult. Another challenge is making sure that the book is properly edited and looks professional. I have a team of editors working on the content as well as a professional artist and graphic designer making sure the project looks good.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
