8+ years ago, I wrote a poem for my friend to help her young children understand the Holy Ghost. With encouragement from family and motivation by published authors, I submitted my work to Cedar Fort. Today, my books are on sale at Amazon! So surreal that I’m an RWA Pro, SCBWI Pal, and LDStorymaker 🙂 https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01FJ1EUFA?ref_=mw_olp_product_details
Happy Reading Friends!!

Woohoo! You’ve read all the messages in your inbox.
That’s what I see at the top of my inbox. This doesn’t mean I’ve replied to all my emails, but I have read them. I’ve even found some emails that motivated me to spend hours on the internet researching books, authors, and more writerly meanderings.
This upcoming weekend I’ll be attending a baptism for my niece (one of the 25) who will become a member of the Church of Jesus Chris of Latter-day Saints. I’m sure excited that she’s already got copies of my books “I Want to be Baptized” and “The Holy Ghost is like a Baptism” because that means I get to shop for something else (maybe a Minky Couture blanket?).
But I just wanted to say THANK YOU to all of the 18000+ folks who have buy my books for baptisms, confirmations, funerals…it’s a blessing to know the little inspired stories that I write matter to families and friends.
Welcome to the official website of Annalisa Hall, bestselling author of the children’s books The Holy Ghost is Like a Blanket, I Want to Be Baptized, and the upcoming Sheppard’s Last Lamb.

It’s great to be eight.
Our youngest just turned six and is learning to draw the number 8. She got a small whiteboard as a gift and covers the surface with figure eights, 8 and says to me, “I can’t wait to be 8.”
What a blessing to have “I Want to Be Baptized” and “The Holy Ghost is Like a Blanket” for her to read and ponder before she turns eight and makes that important choice in her life.
I had the blessing of signing a few books for some friends who came to town. I do love signing books for special events like baptisms and confirmations.
The gospel is a joy and at this Easter season when we rejoice in the resurrection of Jesus Christ, I find happiness abounding all around in the simple joys of life, even drawing the letter 8, it’s great!
Stay Tuned – I’ll be headed to Provo/Orem the first week of May for book signing events.
It’s my birthday tomorrow — so I’m going to party today!!
Wednesday Sept 9th is the release of the board book version “I Want to Be Baptized” illustrated by Corey Egbert. Hip Hip Hurray!!
