Becoming a writer was an idea I had buried away for a long time. After a career as a print model and television commercial actress, I committed my life to God. Soon afterward, I married and had two sons. Motherhood was the best part of my life. While my children grew up, my husband and I had a desire to make television shows for children. God gave me a dream which became Saved by the Bell. Seven more sitcoms followed.
During those early years of marriage, miracles of God were abundant. I was blessed to watch God and His supernatural ways manifest in my own family’s lives and in the lives of others. I knew from the beginning of these amazing events that I would write a book one day to share. In 2014, I published my first book. MIRACLES – Expect Something Wild: 25 Inspirational True Stories of God’s Unbridled Power. Shortly afterward, Book Two: MIRACLES – The Holy Spirit’s Fire: 20 Inspirational True Stories of God’s Brilliance Ablaze. I have written five more books since.
I began a career in art. Oils on canvas, and a variety of styles. In 2003, my work was displayed in galleries nationwide. Some of those paintings are in my first two books at the beginning of each story.
|Poems of Summer by Connie Bryson|
In the summer of 2013, I stayed at the beach near the Santa Monica Pier. I had been through much heartbreak in my life and needed a haven in which to heal. This is when I wrote poems and later composed them into a book, Poems of Summer. I drew in all the beauty surrounding me and birthed it into poetry. From the morning sunrise to the brilliant sunset, I breathed in the salt air of summer. God’s creation encompassed me and brought soundness to my weary soul.
At the end of that summer, I moved into my new home. This is where my writing all began. I pray that the books I have written, and the ones yet to come will bring joy to the readers, and an awareness of God as they’ve never experienced before.
