Our Daily Bread Ministry – Josh was on the editorial team when Teri McKinley and I were contracted to launch Our Daily Bread for Kids. He was instrumental in the development process of our devotional books, board books, and activity books. His creative input was valuable to the success of these popular products.
Baker Book House – Josh was a great fit for the children’s division of the bookstore. He managed author events and holiday programs. His marketing ideas were always kid-friendly and appealed to parents as well. I enjoyed the many story hour programs and signings that he scheduled and facilitated. He is a great listener and encourager to authors. He understands the children’s market as a writer, publisher, and bookseller.
Writers’ Conferences – Josh works behind the scenes as well as in a hands-on capacity at the Breathe Writers’ Conference where I present workshops each year.
