Rachelle Castor is a mother, grandmother and early childhood educator. Her love for children has led her to write short story and picture books for children and families. Through her work, she received the Covenant Communications Bronze Trumpet Award, 2018, for selling 100,000 books. Rachelle’s desire is to see this Smart Hearts for Kids project make its way into the hands, minds, and hearts of children in homes and schools and organizations globally. “If we can teach children who they really are we can help them build resilience before difficulties and afflictions cause disruptive damage. Where painful or harmful events have already taken place, these emotionally healing and inspiring truths will empower children in real ways to help them move out of the painful darkness and into the light of hope. I believe children are the nearest thing to heaven. It is through a collaborative voice of love, hope, and wisdom that our children and our world will heal.”
