Docia shares her motivation for writing, “My motivation for writing this story was for me to find peace in the midst of all the hurt and pain. I often say to people that I had to ask God for Peace and He gave me Simply Chubby.” As Ms. Smith prayed for peace not only did she find comfort in writing, “Simply Chubby A Celebration of Life”, she decided to develop a series to help parents, family members, and educators engage children in safe communication about some of the issues and/or situations they may encounter.
Ms. Smith second book, “Hush” will be released soon. Far too often children do not have the tools to decipher friendly attention from strangers or family members. “Hush” will guide educators and parents through a series of strategies and examples of ways to engage children in safe conversations about emotional, sexual, and physical abuse.
Docia Smith prayed for peace in her spirit and the concept of the "Comfort Book Series" was born. The goal of the series is to educate, provide resources and tools to help parents, grandparents, and educators to engage children in safe conversations to start the healing process.
