Hey There, I'm Julia

A couple years ago, as I began writing my first children's book, Edward the Egg: Inspiring Adventures for Kids, I realized there was a metaphor in the book for an awesome truth.  You see, Edward cracks on each adventure. In each adventure, someone tapes Edward back together. 
What a beautiful story our world tells when people realize they can help "tape" each other up too. The initial dream to publish one book for my kids inspired the birth of RoyalKIND®, whose mission is to spark a generation that believes in their worth and "Takes the Time" to encourage ALL who come across their path.

The IDEA

It all started when my oldest son turned 4 years old and my middle son was 2. They wanted stories before bed. I really can't remember how I came up with Edward the Egg, but I just remember his character coming to my mind. I remember wanting the story to have a surprise in the end, something they would get excited about. I wanted them to never give up....to know that when something bad happened, God would work it for good when they persevered. The very first Edward the Egg story was when Edward learned to cook.

Storytelling

Once I told the story, it seemed like every night they wanted another one, and another one. They loved hearing what Edward would do next. As the years went on, I told several Edward the Egg stories (I wish I had written them all down). I had a little girl after my two boys, Carly. As she got older, and began having sleepovers, I discovered how much other children loved to hear the stories too. Every sleepover, the kids would beg for an Edward the Egg story. 

 

Prayers
Answered

After two years of praying, I finally felt like I knew what God wanted me to do. That voice we hear in our heads that won't go away.  He wanted me to share His story through Edward the Egg. Jesus died on the cross so that we can always be taped back up.  I believe God also wanted these stories to give children the chance to share their stories. Edward the Egg inspires children to dream and never give up. A sweet friend of my daughters, Madi Mirra, who also loved to hear the stories, asked to draw the pictures. The book finally started coming to life!
