If there were just one word that could be used to describe Terri and her heart for God and children, it would be “insatiable.” She has an unquenchable love for both, that can only be satisfied by service. Terri believes that you can experience the purest form of God’s love when giving love to children. It is from this passion that God called her to start her own publishing company (Divinely Inspired Publications) and begin to write “Kingdom Kids Books”. The books are designed to equip, encourage and empower children to be who God has called them to be. "There is a need in the earth to teach kids who they are in God, what they can be and what they can have as a result of a relationship with Him. Terri also believes that it is NEVER too soon to start".
She is married to Retired, SFC Frank Bell and they are the proud parents of two sons, Frank and Kendall, and a new daughter-in-love, Marie. It is while traveling as a military spouse that she began her professional career working with families and children in Early Childhood Development and Elementary Education. Terri believes in Proverbs 18:16 which states, “Your gift will make room for you”. This passage of scripture seems to manifest itself in her life quite often. Over the past 30 years, she has become a valuable asset to organizational leaders who serve children. She has held such positions as, Center Director, Assistant Director, Teacher, Training and Curriculum Specialist, and Family Coordinator.
Terri is also the CEO/Founder of a non-profit organization appropriately entitled, “Kingdom Kids Foundation.” Its goal is to affect families and communities through literacy, parent education, and economic empowerment. She uses her books, programs, and services as a catalyst to accomplish that goal. In addition to publishing, Terri is a Book Coach and uses her expertise as a platform to mentor aspiring writers to walk in their destiny as Authors. She is also the host/facilitator of an online prayer line, "Power of a Praying Parent" that meets every week to pray for children and their families. She is also a "Jesus Calling" prayer ambassador for Harper Collins. This is author, Sarah Young's online prayer call that meets every Tuesday morning around the world.
Terri's has added to her passion teaching children how to use their writing skills and the POWER of language and literacy to write their own stories. "Literacy to Life" Young Author Writing Academy is a new and upcoming educational pilot program being offered to parents and select schools to empower students to narrative their own books.
Terri’s heartfelt prayer is that every one of God’s children, young and old will come into the knowledge of who God is and who they are in Him. It is there that we all find our true power, purpose and destiny!
