Tesha M. Thompson was born and raised in Jamaica. She believes that God created her to be an inspirer. She demonstrates the strengths of the melancholic temperament and is quick to admit that God is breaking the weaknesses of the same in her.
Tesha became a regional child development coordinator in 2009. She continues to serve as Caribbean Field Compassionate Ministries Coordinator for Nazarene Compassionate Ministries (NCM). Additionally, Tesha served as Youth President, Radio Co-Host, and Head Usher for many years but still is committed to serving at her home church, Richmond Park.
She also serves as a freelance translator/interpreter and has been a teacher of foreign languages since 1999. Currently, she lectures at a teachers’ college.
Her heart lies in training and multiplying teachers/leaders to help to maintain or restore dignity to children. Thus, she believes in multilingual literacy, child sponsorship, child development projects and community projects.
How do you approach cover design?
I allow the creativity of my publisher and his designer after giving the color and title of the Book. I get to choose from three designs. Do not judge a book by its cover is an old adage. Therefore, I like my readers to critically wonder about my choice. Thus, even the cover should be a conversation piece.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The Aesop Fables are my first set of stories. Certainly, these remain inspirational and they stirred change in me even as a child. Thus, The Fox and the Crow stands out as an all -time favorite. The message is powerful. I am not easily flattered.
These devotions will encourage you to maintain or start your relationship with Jesus Christ and serve Him by serving children. The author believes that God is breaking her ideals and is replacing them with God-visions, lest the people perish. The devotions are simple yet profound, practical, but deeply spiritual. They will inspire and enrich your life in a very awesome way!
