Sing to the Lord; bless his name.

Each day proclaim the good news that he saves.

Publish his glorious deeds among the nations.

Tell everyone about the amazing things he does.

Great is the Lord! He is most worthy of praise!
–Psalm 96:2-4, NLT

Welcome to my world! I’m glad you’ve stopped by. Whether this is your first visit or if you’ve been here before, there’s something very exciting about knowing that out of this big wide world, we’ve “connected.”

About Nancy I. Sanders
Nancy and Jeff Sanders make their home in southern California. They have two adult sons, Dan and Ben, who are married and have families of their own. Their cats Sandman and Pitterpat add lots of hilarious moments to their family.

Jeff is a retired elementary teacher who loves to work with kids, enjoys telling stories, and finds delight in music. If not reading a biography of Bach or Beethoven, you might find him playing the piano, strumming the guitar, or picking the banjo. He is a native of California.

Nancy grew up the youngest of seven children on a dairy farm in Everett, Pennsylvania. She helped milk the cows, bale the hay, drive the tractor, and pick giant weeds out of their humongous garden.

After moving to California when she was 20, Nancy and Jeff met and were married. As a stay-at-home mom, Nancy found true enjoyment in taking pen to paper and learning the craft of writing.

Much of Nancy’s time is spent writing books and working on various manuscript projects. A bestselling and award-winning children’s author, she has published more than 100 books. Her favorite topics to write about are God, Bible stories, educational subjects, African American history, and Jane Austen.

Some of Nancy’s favorite hobbies include taking walks, sewing patchwork quilts, gardening, and capturing the beauty of God’s wonderful creation on film. She enjoys watching birds and butterflies, and has fun taking photos of hummingbirds that visit the flowers just outside their kitchen window.

Jeff and Nancy attend Calvary Chapel Chino Hills as their home church. They both benefit from reading through the Bible each year.
