The event—a book launch.
The quirky title “Pizza and Choir” had guests intrigued, though it was not long before this was explained by author, Rebecca Moore, during an excellent interview led by a very natural and conversational MC, Megan Bennett.
Rebecca Moore has been a senior writer and monthly editor for Christian Today Australia’s Press Service International for several years. During this time, she has written for various online and print media in a variety of comment pieces, movie reviews and articles.
Her first book, was published as a gift from her husband in 2016 and since then she has continued to write, drawing from her experiences as a mother, and driven by her great love of conveying the message of salvation to as many people as possible through the publication of her works.
Throughout the interview, Rebecca told of how her love of writing had having loved stories and reading from a very early age. She tells of the impact a high school teacher made on her life when he told her that she would one day write a book. Thinking this would be something way off in the future, she continued to write without thinking of publication.
Looking back on her life, Rebecca reflects on how God was always leading her towards her writing passion. Her first job on leaving high school was working in a book shop and then later, after marrying and having four babies, her life was directed through swimming teaching to publication.
Rebecca tells of a distinct time when her life made a direct diversion to the path she was meant to be on. Driving home from work one day, Rebecca was listening to a song about someone’s life changing for good after a tragic car accident. In this same moment, her car was struck head-on by a car exiting a side street.
She was knocked unconscious but when she awoke, she was looked after in a nearby building until the paramedics arrived—which happened to be a publishing house.
It was during the following year that publishing opportunities began to open for Rebecca. Eight years on, with two published books, Rebecca is right where she feels she is meant to be—spreading the good news of Jesus through the gift of writing.
Her latest release, , is written from the heart of a mother with stories short enough to read over a cup of coffee or while putting the children down for their nap, and filled with enough love and encouragement to keep you going for the rest of the day with a joyful mindset.
is a beautiful view of life. With a masterful touch, loving heart and joyful perspective in life, Rebecca captures and retells the moments in our lives that really matter.
