York Releases First Book in Children’s Book Series


Belmont University Director of Alumni Communication & Young Alumni and 2002 alumnus Adam D. York recently released his first children’s book, “Meet Penny Nickels” with WestBow Press, a division of Thomas Nelson & Zondervan.

“Meet Penny Nickels,” the first in “The Adventures of Penny Nickels,” introduces Penny, a copper-haired girl who lives with her parents, Bill and Sharon Nickels, and her pet Chihuahua, Dinero, in the town of Stewardville. Readers join Penny in learning the true meaning and importance of living live as a good steward.

As a former minister, writer and curriculum editor for children, teens and young adults, York developed a passion for helping individuals learn about the importance of stewardship. York, a native of Jamestown, Tennessee, graduated from Belmont with a degree in theological studies and  completed a Master of Christian Studies from Union University in 2010.

York hopes the series will help children and parents discover ways to use their  talents, skills and passions to make a difference in the world through giving, serving and being good managers of God-given resources.
