“Like mother, like daughter.”  For Teri McKinley that well known phrase has come true. Teri’s mom, Crystal Bowman, is an accomplished author.  Mom has been writing children’s books for over 20 years.  Now, daughter is a published author as well.  Teri co-authored a children’s devotional book, My Mama and Me: Rhyming Devotions for You and Your Child, with her mom that has been recently published by Tyndale House Publishing. 

 When Teri received a copy of her first book she said, “Excitement doesn’t begin to describe the feeling I had when I held the book for the first time! It was the first moment I truly grasped the weight of the opportunity I had been given. Pride, joy, and giddiness were the feelings that washed over me. I also felt a huge sense of gratefulness to the Lord—I couldn’t believe He would use me, a young woman in East Texas, to reach children in this way.”
