Life Is What It's Called -What inspired you to write The Girl and Her Noble Steed?

Kirthana J. Fanning - From my childhood, fairytales have held a special place in my heart. Yet, I couldn't help but notice that while these stories were enchanting, they often lacked a strong foundation of Christian faith. The first three versions of "The Girl and Her Noble Steed" were not faith-based, and this realization weighed on my heart. I prayed earnestly, seeking guidance. It was during this time of reflection and prayer that God laid upon my heart the conviction that I needed to create faith-based books. This divine calling became clear to me, and I knew it was His will for me.

With this newfound purpose, I set out to craft stories that would not only captivate young minds with thrilling adventures but also impart essential life lessons, teaching them to have unwavering trust in God and the belief that with Him, anything is possible. My goal was to provide my goddaughter, my nephews, my future children, and all the young readers out there with tales that would inspire and nurture their faith.
