Local author Amanda Delaune and illustrator Jill Stegall are witnessing robust community support for their recently launched book, “Uniquely Me Becoming Who God Created Me to Be.” Released on Amazon during Cyber Monday, the book quickly secured the #1 New Release designation in both Children’s Inspirational and Children’s Values categories, competing alongside established classics like the Bernstein Bears series.

“Uniquely Me” offers a Christian perspective on challenging topics such as fitting in, rejection, and identity, presented through a childlike lens. The book stands out with its watercolor illustrations that have garnered positive reviews from readers.

Amanda Delaune and Jill Stegall, who first met three years ago at a Resurrection Life Church group called Rooted and Grounded, led by the local pastor’s wife, Amy Hickman, attribute the success of their book to the collective support of their church group and the broader community.
