About this Project

Picture Book Apologetics began with a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2013. This series of Christian apologetics books for children now features 6 titles. From concept to completion, in collaboration with my husband and other published apologists, I employed nearly every skill in my toolbox to help bring this brand, these books, and their web presence to fruition.
