Kyle Cox is studying mission ministry at The Crown College in Powell, Tennessee. From the moment he wrote a book for his sisters about a family “that was large, but then again, not so large at all,” (They were a family with a lot of kids that were all under twelve inches tall.) they have enjoyed everything Kyle has written. We are thrilled he has a platform to share his writing with you now! Kyle loves children’s ministries, makes a mean pie crust, and loves to play board games with his friends.
