Frequently Asked Questions

Why did Joan C. Benson write the book "His Gift"?

I began the book shortly after my mother passed away. I began reading her diary, and realized what an exciting story she had. The book’s conflict is based on her true life event, but the subsequent plot is fictionalized. I changed the name of the main character from my mother’s name (Milly) to Molly so I could create the fiction more easily.

Why did Joan C. Benson begin speaking publicly about her faith?

When a person goes through dramatic life twists and turns, it is helpful to share how God met his or her needs to encourage others. The same principle is true of wanting young adults to be inspired by His Gift to encourage their faith in times of unplanned losses and disappointments.

Is Joan C. Benson currently working on any other book projects?

Yes, I have a book in progress now. It is called Eva’s Choice, and it is based on my counseling experiences at the Crisis Pregnancy Center of Tidewater. I hope to have it finished by the end of 2020.
