Soul-Searching Christian Youth Share Testimonies in Jacqueline King’s Touching Book Exhibited at Printers Row Lit Fest


“Here are words written by Christian youth who walk many paths, yet all strive towards hope and peace.”

Back in early September, the Printers Row Lit Fest 2023 gave newly published authors an exciting chance to showcase their work on the streets of Chicago. Such a venue was just ideal for Christian counselor Jacqueline King, author of “From the Mouth of Babes.” The book is a collection of essays and testimonies of the young people she has encountered in her ministry. In it, readers were able to see a more honest and heartfelt side to faith-seeking kids.

Chicago’s Printers Row was the site of many publications and that includes no small number of written testimonies by people with a story to tell. For Christian counselor and youth minister Jacqueline King, the real stories worth telling are those of the many young, passionate, and soul-searching kids she was blessed to mentor.

That is why she decided to collect their many heartfelt essays and publish them in a book titled “From the Mouth of Babes.” The book was able to exhibit at the fest with support from ReadersMagnet, a self-publishing and book marketing company.

King has been a firsthand witness to many of the struggles of young people. She is not only a paralegal expert and certified counselor; she has worked with organizations such as the New England Home for Little Wanderers, the Boston Ten Point Coalition, and the Department of Youth Services in Massachusetts.

Much of her work involved listening, engaging and letting these youths speak their mind through written words. And as she read through them, she was compelled to share their thoughts with the world and the let the world know that even young people who style themselves as Christian are just as human as everyone else. They have their own worries, fears, and hopes for the future they are trying to build.

It is her hope that the people who looked through her book during the Lit Fest would at least come away with a different perspective on kids taking part in youth ministry.

Copies of Jacqueline King’s “From the Mouth of Babes” are available on Amazon and as Barnes & Noble.
