Author Biography

I grew up in East Tennessee loving the mountains and Tennessee football. My mom was a librarian and every summer I helped with the summer reading program which only grew my love for books.
My imagination is ever growing, and I have passed that down to my children who are very ADHD. We enjoy making up stories together and driving my husband crazy who has a neurotypical brain. He is still learning how to live with three very unorganized people who often find themselves in another world.
I write children's books that relate to the issues we have dealt with in our own home and hope to bring a little laughter and characters that are relatable for little minds.

I Wish You Knew: Godly Wisdom from a Parent to a Child by Jenn L. Brown is set to become a classic of encouragement for children. A major part of parenting is teaching your child to be all they can be. Your goal is to develop a child who will become a self-confident adult. This book goes a long way in helping your child grow into such an adult. Your children bring great joy to your life as they share and develop their unique talents and gifts. Children also need to know that parents grieve for them when they are hurting. It is the parents who teach their children the difference between right and wrong. Because your child can achieve, teach them never to give up. Teaching your child how to choose their friends is also very important. These lessons and so many more are included in this book.

Jenn L. Brown wrote I Wish Your Knew to help parents share life lessons with their children tempered with the love of God. Sharing the love of God with your child will reinforce all the other skills you will teach. Helping your child grow into a godly young man or woman will allow them to develop all the values and morals needed to succeed. Reading this book to and with your child will encourage them to become all they can be. Children can become discouraged as they grow up. Jenn desires that parents teach their children to keep the faith and find encouragement along the way. This book delightfully affirms children. Reaffirming your child’s abilities and potential is a wonderful way to help them believe in themselves.

I Wish You Knew: Godly Wisdom from a Parent to a Child by Jenn L Brown is a lovely faith-based children’s book with helpful advice for children of all ages. It explores a child’s special bond with their parent and encourages children to develop their talents. It offers wise lessons about friendship, learning from failure, and having patience while emphasizing the value of hard work and being respectful. In the story, the parents reassure the child of their constant presence and love, especially during times when the child experiences disappointment or faces hardship. The parents express their dreams and hopes, encouraging the child to pursue their dreams and know that they can achieve difficult things if they put their minds to it. The story assures children that they are loved and are created with a purpose.

Adults and children will be motivated by the advice offered in the book. I found the lessons applicable to anyone regardless of their age. The story will remind adult readers of their abilities and strength when they face failure or challenges. The advice will also help them strengthen their relationship with their child. Children will enjoy reading through the story as it features rhyming words. They will also be able to learn and recall new words. The illustrations in the book are bright and colorful and make the story even more engaging. I Wish You Knew by Jenn L Brown is a supportive picture book with helpful lessons for all readers. Children will love its beautiful illustrations and learn how to handle everyday life challenges.
