“You are precious to me. You are honored, and I love you” Isaiah 43:4b
When I was writing the Christy Miller books I “met” Katie Weldon just about the same time the readers did. Katie showed up at a sleep over in the second book and was originally supposed to be just a walk on character that got a little wild as the girls were TPing Rick Doyle’s house. Then she was supposed to fade into the background.
But I really liked Katie.
I didn’t want her to leave. I wanted to write more about her and see how her friendship with Christy would develop. As I continued to write about Christy and Katie I kept remembering a verse I’d memorized in Exodus 19:5 when I was a teen. I loved the phrase, “Peculiar Treasure”, as it appears in the King James version. I loved that God calls us his “Peculiar Treasure”.
