About Dawn Jacobs
Ever since I was a young child, not even old enough to read, I loved books. I would write stories and would use the old purple carbon paper to duplicate them for my cousins. I would add their names to my stories to make them more unique and individualized. After I began to learn how to read and write, it was all over with. I knew what I wanted to do with my life. I wanted to be a published author.
Well, then life happened. I got married young, at the ripe age of 18; had my first child when I was 19, and then divorced at the ripe old age of 21. After much pain, tears, and a multitude of prayers, God saved me from a drug addiction to marijuana and a few other unmentionables. I wasn’t an addict, per say, but I was so into the lifestyle that I found myself losing more than I could imagine, including my son and my own life. Thankful to God that I had Him to save me, and with the help of my parents, I was able to raise my son as a single mom for a couple years. On rebound, I met another man, had another daughter, then married, and still fell into a pit of despair. Divorcing my second husband had me believing that I wasn’t coping with what life was giving me and that I probably would never be anything more than what I was, a huge failure.
Though I slid away from God, as we all tend to do sometimes, He was still there to bring me around to the love of my life, my third husband, they say third time is a charm, and soul mate. Bob has brought me through thick and thin, has stuck by my side and supported me through every endeavor I dreamed for myself, my family, and for him. Since I’ve met and married my soul mate, and with the help of my savior and Lord, Jesus Christ, I’ve received three levels of college, ending with my Masters of Education in Elementary degree. Deciding to become a teacher was a huge decision. What helped me make the final decision was that I wanted to learn and share what I love to do: teach, read, and write, and teaching was going to help me do that.
So, here I sit with 40 years of writing just waiting eagerly and patiently to be published. I chose God’s Child to be my first publication because I owe everything I am to God. I want people to enjoy what I’ve written, plain and simple. Wherever this book leads me is His will. I praise His holy name for everything He’s done for me and my family.
