- Tomahawk's Chris Loehmer Kincaid always wanted to be an author.
But even more, she always wanted to help people in a third world country.
Kincaid want on a mission trip to Kenya in 2006.
There she experienced poverty, widespread disease, and tough living conditions.
"There was this little girl, maybe 8 or 10 years old, this skinny little thing, stark naked, she's got this dirty rag and little bucket, and she's got water in there, and she's trying to wash herself. It's like, oh, it really pulled at my heart because, how can people live like that?" thinks Kincaid.
Even so, Kincaid was surprised to find how happy and grateful people were for their lives.
Seeing how some Kenyans lived changed her outlook.
"They don't realize there's a whole nother world out there. They don't realize what they're even missing. So I think I really brought that home, and I really do appreciate everything more that I have," Kincaid says.
Kincaid started writing about her thoughts and experience in a blog.
Soon after, she started writing a book.
"This is the first book that I've written. I've always wanted to be a writer," she says.
It's called, "A Time for Every Purpose Under Heaven".
The book discusses Kincaid's African trip and the inspiration she drew from God for the journey.
