We listen to persons whom we trust. We pay attention to those whose words are in harmony with the way they live. For these reasons, I listen and pay attention to my friend "Kay." These "daily devotionals" are the fruit of Kay's walk with the Lord. She has lived what she has written. She is a person my wife and I have often called on to pray for us. She has been faithful in her response to God, and her life is a witness to God's faithfulness. I invite you to listen and pay attention to what she has to share.
-Dr. Maxie D. Dunnam, Past President, Asbury Theological Seminary

"I have known Kate Thomas and her husband since the day their granddaughter was diagnosed with autism. Reactions to the news are many and varied and all are valid. Kate's reaction was to begin to learn all that she could and be involved and helpful to her daughter's family and her granddaughter. She always was supportive while never taking over the decision-making role that was her parents. When there were gaps in services, Kate helped to create opportunities. When respite was needed that's what she did. When she didn't know something she found out in various ways. When she needed help and prayer she asked for that. Kate reached out to others and keeps doing that in many ways. Her granddaughter has brought new wisdom and opportunity to Kate and in turn Kate enriches the life of her granddaughter. Thank you, Kate, for writing this book that will be a great help to grandparents as they try to determine their role in helping their families."

Mother Duck Knows The Way
Plus Ky. tax
The story of Mother Duck Knows the Way unfolded before author Kate Thomas' eyes. She watched a mother duck lead her twelve ducklings across a busy city street, over a rock wall, and down twelve steps to the city lake. The story of this experience will appeal to young children and offers many possibilities for instruction. Topics such as street safety, following directions, dealing with fear, and developing trust provide good material for discussion. Questions for discussion are provided at the end of the book.
"Young children will appreciate the comfort and assurance offered in this gentle story about learning to trust and overcoming fear. And parents will welcome the discussion questions that will encourage little hearts to consider God's love."
