 Learning to ride a bicycle is a risky challenge for Olivia. She avoids this risk and even turns down ice cream, her favorite snack. What will encourage Olivia to overcome her fear and take a chance? The Ride gives children hope and understanding. Regardless of the size of the task or regardless of the person’s age, gaining strength and courage from the Lord is only a prayer away. In this, her second book, Kayla Davidson creates a fun, playful way to teach children how to include God in their everyday lives.

  For More Information: The Ride is available at Amazon.

    Why I Wrote The Ride:

The Ride focuses on overcoming obstacles of all sizes in your life.  We all encounter obstacles
                such as doubt, worry, fears, and so much more.  The Ride encourages children to include God
              when facing these tribulations.

               It is comforting to know there is no problem too small for God.  The Ride demonstrates God's   
               desire for children to include Him in their everyday journey on this ride we call life.  In the
               book, Olivia's faces the challenge of learning to ride a bike. She fabricates several excuses to
               avoid riding, and eventually turns to the Lord in prayer.

Goals when writing The Ride:

We all do things at different times in our lives. The Ride reassures children, it is ok to accomplish tasks on your own time.

How do we turn to God? We can turn to God by praying, which does not need to be a formal conversation.

                Thanks for allowing me this opportunity to share with you why I wrote The Ride. I pray the
                 book brings hope and understanding into the life of your child.
