Blog Tour: Texting Through Time: John Taylor

This Christmas season author Christy Monson returns with her second book in her Texting Through Time series. Texting Through Time: John Taylorhelps youth learn more about John Taylor and the early Latter-day Saints in a fun and captivating way.

If you are interested in joining the blog tour, please leave a comment with the date you’d like to post or contact me viaemail.

The book will be available for purchase in November, or I can send you a PDF.


Here is a brief description of the book:

Micah and Alicia are excited to meet John Taylor as a child in England. But when their phone won’t let them return to their own time, they’ll follow the prophet around the world, learning some important lessons along the way. Humorous, entertaining, and informative, this book is a wonderful introduction to church history that’s bound to be a family favorite!


Meet the Author:

My grandmother lived with us when I was young. She loved to read me stories. I would curl up in her lap or sit on the bed next to her and listen to the tales spin out before me. We cried together over Lassie Come Home and loved Madeline and her adventures. That was a magical time for me in my life. When my children were little, I loved reading to them because it kept the magic alive. Now my children are grown, I can keep the magic by writing stories for others to read.

I love to read and write stories about the pioneer prophets.

Pioneers live all over the world. I still have family in Switzerland and Poland. Where do you and your ancestors come from? Write and tell me.

I am like the pioneers because I love:

  • Old fashioned cooking””making butter
  • Pioneer games””button, button, who’s got the button?
  • Crafts the pioneers enjoyed””drying wild flowers

    I want to join the tour, are those the only days available?

    • October 18, 2012 at 3:31 pm

      You can post any time you want as far as I’m concerned. It is easier to put you on the tour if you use one of these days. Just email me, I’m flexible.

    I can post this on both Uplifting Reads and Andi’s Chapter Books. I can either do it on the same day or back-to-back days. I would prefer the end of the tour, as I am in the middle of parent-teacher conference season and that would give me some time to do it all. Thanks!

    I’d love to read the next in the series. I enjoyed the first immensely! Could I have October 28?
    (And could we do a trade? My tour runs from the 31 to the 12.)
