ND woman publishes children’s book, ‘The Color of My Love’

If you’re a parent, you likely know of the great impact children can have on all aspects of life.
Not all parents are able to put that on paper and spread the impact to the rest of the world, but one local woman is able to do that .. and she’s doing it through a children’s book.

The back of the book, ‘The Color of My Love,’ explains that the book shows love through experiences and the colors of those experiences.

The author, who lives in Plaza, said that once the book is read and closed, she wants it carry on and open up opportunity every day for those who’ve read it with their kids.

“There’s a lot of things that would not be fulfilling in my life if it wasn’t for them,” author Stephanie Edwards said.

That’s where it all started .. with inspiration from her kids.

Her five-year-old daughter, Journey, said “That book has every color she loves me with.”

The idea to write a book about the love between parents and children came to her years ago, when her now 17-year-old son was just a toddler.

“I just remember describing things to him,” Edwards said. “When he was very young and didn’t know, I would always include the color. ‘Look at the blue crayon, not just the crayon,’ and everything had a color with it.”

The book shows the beauty behind things like the color orange in the fall .. drawing red hearts on a note .. or the green grass when making memories outside.

“These are my experiences with all three of my kids,” said Edwards. “In different ways, there’s a piece of all of them in there.”

“My mom always tries to express how much she loves us,” Edwards’ 15-year-old daughter, Jersey, said. “This is just another way for her to show how much she loves us.”

The biggest message of all is to live in the moment, and let that moment last even when it has passed.

“The really important part about it is that it opens the door when you’re done for a conversation that can literally be a part of your life every day, if you make it,” Edwards added.

Her book is currently available on Amazon, on the publisher’s website, and soon-to-be at Barnes and Noble.

Edwards will be at The Kirkwood Mall in Bismarck on Black Friday and at Main Street Books for story time on December 1.
