I’m Okay, Momma
A children’s picture book, written in rhyme with the Fruit of the Spirit woven throughout
One day Jackie Price’s Grandma fetched her little granddaughter when school ended, then they stopped to visit a neighbor. As the minutes ticked by, Jackie’s mother grew concerned and set out searching for her mother and daughter. Where was her little girl? The five-year-old saw her mother approaching and understood the concern on her face. She opened the neighbor’s screen door and shouted, “I’M OKAY, MOMMA! I’M OKAY!” As the years passed, Jackie forgets this episode, but her mother never did. Shortly before Joy Price died, she reminded Jackie of the memory and told her, “I know you will always be okay, Jackie.”
The book inspired by this incident is the story of a loving mother who showers her daughter with love, care, compassion, discipline, and kindness. She teaches Christian values, including the Fruit of the Spirit, by example.
