What If?


"What If...? Just two little words, but two little words that can change the world!


The Scientist asks "What If?" and a new medicine is discovered.

The Inventor asks "What If?" and a new product is presented to the world.

The Politician asks "What If?" and a country's government is improved. But what happens when the teenager asks "What If?"


Rachel Anderson is a typical 14 year old trying to work her way through high school. But then she's asked some "What If?" questions and life begins to change. What possibilities could open up if she auditioned for the school play? How would life be different if Jesus was one of her school friends? As Rachel faces these new challenges, friendships change in unexpected ways. 

Rachel's Summer Adventure


A few years ago I went to Canada on holiday with my family, we had the most amazing time, experiencing so much from Calgary to Vancouver - we all love Canada - the scenery, the activities and the people.


I decided that it would be fun for Rachel, the main character from What If?, to have a Canadian family holiday too.  You can read all about Rachel's Summer Adventure by downloading the short story here.
