An Interview with Author Koedi Nealy

Q: PENNIES FROM HEAVEN is really your personal story. Why did you decide to put it into children’s book form?

A: I decided to write about my story in book format because when I was seven, I felt called to serve others, but no one really got on board to help me.  I told my parents about my dream to help the homeless, but my parents just thought I was a cute little girl who wanted to change the world. They didn’t know I was serious about starting a ministry. And why would they? I mean I was seven! And that’s why I decided to put my story into a children’s book. I want to teach other kids that they aren’t too young to make a difference. I also think it’s important for adults to listen and nurture dreams that their kids come to them with. It’s important for our kids to feel like their voice is being heard.  

Q: What ages do you believe this book reaches and what do you hope they learn from this book?

A: Pennies from Heaven is written as a children’s book, but I believe all ages can learn from it. I want to remind people that they are valuable to God and you’re never too young or too old to make a difference! I also want to share Jesus with the world and show people that anyone can be His hands and feet. Living in a big city my whole life, I noticed how the homeless were easily seen but not easily understood. I think as Christians we don’t always see how simple it is to be like Jesus. Jesus came to earth to love others and that’s what I was trying to illustrate in the book. 

Q: If you could go back in time, where would you go?
A: I would go back to when I was a little girl at my Grandma’s house (NiNi). She is in my childrens’ book! My grandma has been in heaven for 4 years and I miss her very much. 

Q Favorite travel spot?

A: My favorite travel spot is Medicine Park, OK. I have visited there many times, so it feels comfortable and familiar. I feel close to God when I am there, and I love the mountains and streams and all the nature. I love visiting with the local people there too.

Q: If you were stuck on a deserted island, which 3 books would you want with you?
A: The Bible because I can’t imagine my life without God’s Word. It doesn’t matter how many times I read it, I get a new message from the Lord. Pennies from Heaven because I would want this book so that I could be reminded of my purpose. My baby book because this would remind me of how loved I am by my family.
