Martha Newall

Biography

These Gospel stories started as a join-the-dots exercise, before I road-tested them in my local church and at youth camps. Friends have used them in their own churches and home groups as aids to reflection and to re-awaken familiar Bible passages. I have had interest from Christian publishers but have come to the conclusion that I would rather self-publish online for now. I am very keen on the written word in book-form, bur know that if I want to find something in a hurry, I look on the internet. So hopefully you will find it quick and easy to use my stories.

I would love you to use my stories or sketches for your home group, church, youth camp, conference or fund-raiser. They are written to be read aloud but are intended to be flexible. Please feel free to sit in front of your print-out with a sharp pencil and a touch of imagination.

So far, I have collections for both Advent and Easter Week. No piece is longer than a page and can be used in isolation or together. If using together it usually works to have a variety of voices.

I also have several more isolated stories based on various incidents in the Old and New Testaments. Commissions are very welcome – anything I am commissioned to write will then become available online.

These Gospel adaptations started as a join-the-dots exercise. I wanted to write something that included gritted teeth, morning sickness, and what Mary was thinking about when she wasn’t singing the Magnificat. I would love you to use my stories or sketches for your home group, church, youth camp, conference or fund-raiser. They are written to be read aloud but are intended to be flexible.
