Tyler Woman Inspires East Texas Children With Notes

You may have seen them on store shelves, little lunch boxes called Devotionables.  They are little notes with a bible verse that can go a long way.

Missy Fisher of Tyler has found a way to reach your children, even when you're not there.

"As a mom I feel like I'm so busy all the time, and I want to spend more time having meaningful conversations with my kids, and I just think this is one more thing to start conversations between kids and their parents and kind of make some memories," said Fisher.  Fisher is talking about Devotionables, little notes she wrote that parents can drop in their child's lunch box when they head off for school.  It's something Fisher started doing when her daughter was old enough to read, and she says it grew from there.

"I talked to some of the other moms, and they said, well we could use something like that," said Fisher.  "So, my husband, and I talked about it and prayed about it and decided it was a good idea."  Fisher's idea has turned into a real life product, one you can now find in local bookstores like Scrolls in Tyler and even Brookshires.

"I remember sitting down with my head on the table and thinking, I can't do this," said Fisher.  "I can't put something like this together, but I started looking on the Internet, and I did."  Fisher says the Devotionables are written for elementary and middle school aged children.  She's hoping, however, to write for teenagers next.  For more information go to our homepage and click on the Know More on 7 link.  There you will find Devotionables.
