What Inspired The Book

Phyllis is a mother of two, grandmother of ten, and great-grandmother of four girls. It is this role that inspired her to write the book “The 3 In Me.”  Last summer she decided to invite four of her grandchildren to “Grandma’s Vacation Bible School.” One grandson was in his first year of high school, and one grandson and two granddaughters were in middle school.  The message in her book was the same message to her grand kids. She recently read the book to one of her great-granddaughters.  She is only five years old.  When the reading was finished, her great-granddaughter literally “clapped” her hands.  She said, Grandma, my Spirit will always help me.

            Phyllis is a witness that children understand “spiritual matters” at an early age.  She was only eight years old when she asked Jesus to come into her heart.  Her Pastor said he was only nine years old when he received the call to preach.  Her husband James tells the story of sitting in his middle school classroom when he heard the audible voice of God telling him to preach His word.

Authors Perspective on Children Today

It is said that we are raising a generation of children who have no concept of a Savior God, nor do they aspire to know Him.  We have some children who have all the bells and whistles to keep them distracted from knowing God.  On the other hand, we have children who are living in such poverty and lack until they are simply trying to survive. 

            Parents, teachers, Pastors and other godly counselors, it is our responsibility to keep our children on the right path.  It is not enough to just take them to church.  That is a start, but from personal experience going to church may be an outward expression, but not necessarily a reflection of an inward change, i.e., “what is really going on in the inside of them.”  Everything starts on the inside. 

We must deal with the inner most being of our children.  We want to see visible confirmation of what is taking place on the inside of them.  Scripture says it is not what goes into a man that defiles a man, but what comes out (Mark 7:14-24).  Jesus proclaimed that the prince of this world comes and has nothing in Him. (John 14:30).  We want our children to proclaim the same.  Our children must be fully aware of the “nature of sin” that wants to reign in them by their flesh, but they must know that the Spirit of God resides in them and  is downloading into their spirits (i.e., the inner man) the truths that will set them free.


It is not like any other.  Most children’s books will present a problem for the child and then proceed to help them answer that problem.  The 3 In Me is the answer to EVERY problem your child may have.  Why?  Because it deals with the ROOT of the dilemma.  Any and every issue stem from wrong thinking and a wrong perspective of God.

            This book is easy to understand and helps the child have a “manageable” way to deal with the issues of his or her life.

            What I mean by manageable, is that the issue is not OVERWHELMING.  They can stop saying, I don’t know what to do? Or, I don’t know how?  Their answer will come from within, and not the ways of this world.
