MEET THE ARTIST, Courtney Young

By Molly Noble Bull

Some years ago, I wrote a series of Bible stories in rhyme for children titled God's Favorite Family. But I was never able to find an artist to do the illustrations. Now I have. I would like to introduce Courtney Young.
Courtney and her family have lived in South Texas where I live for five generations. Her late grandfather was the pastor of a church for forty years.
Currently, Courtney is attending McLennan Community College in Waco, Texas. She did the cartoon illustrations for all the little books in the God's Favorite Family series, and there will be at least twelve books—maybe more. Helping Hands Press will be publishing the little e-book, and I will be telling more about the books in the days and months to come. But since this is Holy Week, we thought it might be a good time to show one of Courtney's drawings. 
Her drawing of the Crucifixion will not appear in Book 1 of the series. However, it will appear in one of the later books. 
Take a look, and if you would like to encourage a young Christian artist, please leave a comment.  

God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son that whosoever believe in him will not perish but have everlasting life. 
John 3:16

Congratulations Courtney! This brings such a big smile to my face! You're not only using your amazing artistic talents to do what you've always dreamed of; you're also doing God's work to bring joy and knowledge to everyone who reads this! I can't wait to buy my copy and share with everyone I know. Congrats again!

That is great Courtney, I am working on some children's stories. There is also a great facebook group for childrens writers and illustrators.

I also appreciate all of you who visited Writers Rest and read my article on Courtney Young. We will talk to Courtney again when the first little book is published.
