The Creation of Choose to Love is literally a dream come true. In 1992, while staying at a hotel room in Columbus, Georgia, Kevin Wanzer awoke from a dream in the middle of the night. He grabbed the hotel notepad by the side of his bed and quickly jotted down, verbatim, the message that had come to him in his sleep. Kevin kept the poem to himself for nearly fifteen years. Then he commissioned his artist friend, Kristin Tuller, to create original illustrations to accompany the poem in a book dedicated to his son, Scout. Now, Kevin’s dream is for others to read and share the message with those they choose to love.
Choose to Love was written on March 31, 1992 and was originally published in 2005.
A 10th anniversary new hard cover edition was published in June of 2015 with all new artwork by Kristin.
