Thea has a servant’s heart for the people and her Lord Jesus Christ. She was inspired by the Holy Spirit to write her first book, Hey Auntie, What Color is God? This children’s story is based on a conversation that she had with her niece when she was 4 years old. Five years ago, while fasting, praying, and reading the Bible, the Holy Spirit brought the conversation back to remembrance. She wrote the conversation down and continued to edit and illustrate the story over the years. Finally completed, she heard the words of her Father in Heaven, “It is finished.” Thea wants all children to be friends with Christ. She loves spending time with her 8 nieces and 2 nephews.
