Author Connie Lynn Howard
Connie’s aim to positively impact young children began at home while she was growing up in a small town in Northern Kentucky. She was born the eldest of four siblings and was raised in a loving family. A passion for other children sparked within her at the early age of eight. As she often cared for her brother and sisters, her love for them grew and remained fierce. As a young woman, she soon began a family of her own, with six children and a loving husband. Providing a safe and nurturing environment for each of the children took priority as their ultimate goal. As they attended church together as a family, she took an interest in teaching children’s church. Her joy in working with children only continued to grow as the years went by. The desire to be a light in the lives of children within her community inspired her to eventually open a daycare. In addition to her experience with directing children’s church and running a daycare full time, she also took on a position as a school bus driver. Sixteen grandchildren and three great-grandchildren later, she aspired to write a book that could reach children everywhere. Children are the future! It is Connie’s mission to influence them with a great amount of love, encouragement, and positivity. Her prayer is for her book to inspire children across the world to practice a healthy lifestyle both physically, emotionally, and spiritually – beginning now.
