News Release! “MY SECRET PLACE WITH GOD,” A Christian children’s book written by Rhonda Childs

Author Rhonda Childs, from the Appalachian region of the United States, has released her beautifully written Christian children’s book called “My Secret Place with God.” The story-line has many unique qualities including the rarity that it is a children’s book that is a true story. Rhonda shares some of her stories as a child such as her secret outdoor place in nature where she would talk and pray to God. Her account and correlating Bible scripture was written with much consideration to be simplistic for a child to understand but profound in its effect to touch and teach lessons to people of all ages. The light of Jesus truly shines through Rhonda with her inspiring ‘matter of fact’ faith stirring much ‘thought’ long after the ending!

Dear friend, Rhonda’s hope is to glorify the Lord with this book and to give others the same hope that she had as a child. Rhonda has used the wisdom from God’s Word and her loving kindness to turn an abusive childhood into a ‘positive.’ A major portion of any proceeds from “My Secret Place with God” is used for many charitable causes including aiding young children from the Appalachian region with reading, Bibles, food, clothing, and councel. We thank you for the purchase of this book which in many ways gives hope, faith, and encouragement through the name Jesus!

Copies of “My Secret Place with God” can be purchased digitally at Amazon and also in paperback form directly from the author through her private e-mail  OneLostSheepMinistry99@gmail.com

    Rhonda. You have experienced and written many amazing testimonies of having interactions with angels and also our living God, including definitive miracle healings. But this testimony might be one of my favorites.The way that it was written immediately reminded me of the same simplistic style of writing as Ernest Hemingway when he wrote his Pulitzer and Nobel Literature award winning works, “the Old Man and the Sea.” Your story brilliantly and simplistically takes a reader back in time living as a child with you in seeming present tense and in a child’s innocence perspective. A very moving and forthright heartfelt story.

      Brooke, you are such a bright light for the Lord God! It really does makes a difference when we seek God and spend quality time with him in a quiet place. Yes, the Lord does let us feel and see some amazing, miraculous things! May God continue to bless you and guide you.

    Enjoyed this and it brought back memories of my own childhood especially when I felt Jesus walk me home from church after dark and at that age I was afraid of being outside alone when it was night time. Now I know Jesus is with us always even on the days we do not feel His presents. Keep writing Rhonda, love you and God bless. Susan

      Dear Oliva,
      Thank you for your wonderful accolades on my story. I’m going to post a blog soon about sexual abuse. When I read statistics about sexual abuse on children, the numbers were staggering! I once read that, “God gives His hardest battles to His strongest soldiers.” You and I are mighty warriors my friend!My faith and trust in God was an ever-present force in my life as a little girl. My life would have turned out much different if I hadn’t known the Lord. I hope that we can make a difference in the life of a child. Thank you for your kindness in offering to talk with me. May we as Christians be strong for one another and love each other as God commanded.
      With love in Christ,
      Rhonda

    Rhonda,
    My wife and I really enjoyed reading your beautiful and captivating book! Wow, it’s so simple and easy to understand, yet raw, carefully & sweetly put, loving, caring, and inspiring for all who read it! Absolutely perfect for children!! It should be in every Christian school’s library across America and every public Elementary school’s library is well. Could you imagine the impact if this was brought to fruition…

      Benjamin and Terri,
      Thank you so much for your wonderful comments about the book! I really did want it to be simplistic and inspiring to all who read it. It’s a dream of mine to be able to give this book freely to children who otherwise couldn’t buy it. If the funding of this ministry should grow, it would bring me such joy to give these books to children not only in America but world wide! I want God’s children to know that He loves each one of us and that we can have an everlasting life together in Heaven! Thank you again for your encouraging reply.
      Blessing to you both, Rhonda
