Teresa Krager

Twenty-seven years of teaching mostly kindergarten and first grade led Teresa to her motto, “Dr. Seuss lives in my head, but Jesus lives in my heart!” In addition to a master’s degree in Elementary Education, Teresa holds a minor in Biblical Studies from Pacific Christian College. As a decades-long student and teacher of God’s Word, writing books that draw children to Jesus and teach biblical truths is Teresa’s passion.

The author’s newest picture book, THE GREATEST BOOK EVER! A Little Book about the Greatest Book, was released September 2023 by Lifeway’s B&H Publishing. This fast-paced, rhyming picture book spotlights incredible Bible characters, dramatic events, and amazing miracles all to spike kids’ curiosity and motivate them to read/hear more of God’s Word. (Scripture references are included.)

Other picture books include Before Your Birth Day (2020), a lyrical celebration of life in the womb and Adam Plus One (2021) which portrays God’s perfect plan—woman and man. Both books were published by Elk Lake Publishing, Inc.

Additional projects include a board book about creation, rhyming retellings of the stories of Esther and Nehemiah for children, and a rhyming story that invites children to join God’s creation in a party of praise. She also writes a weekly devotional for adults found at http://PointingTheWay.live.

Teresa and her husband call the Arizona desert home, although she prefers a mountain get-away in the summer. She loves worship music, songwriting, sign language, and playing the piano and guitar. They have been blessed with five children and five grandkiddos.
