Latonya was born and raised in Portland, Oregon. She resides in Alpharetta, Georgia with her husband. She has two young adult daughters which she raised as a single mother for 16 years. Her daughters Roukaya and Soumaya inspired her love of children and her desire to write children books. The Mighty Kidz began as an idea 15 years ago, after reading Psalms 78:6 “So the next generation would know them, even the children yet to be born, and they in turn would tell their children.” This Scripture birthed a desire in Latonya for children everywhere to know God personally. She is forever grateful to the Lord Jesus Christ for the unchanging truth of His written Word. Favorite Scripture: Proverbs 3:5-7 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths. Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord, and turn away from evil.” Mighty Kidz Books Mighty Kidz is a book series for young children that will explore specific truths about God. Each book will introduce one truth through fun, loving, ordinary kids who follow Jesus Christ. Through the Mighty Kidz, your children will learn who God is and what He has done for them.
