Mike Childress
December 22, 1945 – August 31, 2018


On August 31, 2018, after a valiant year-long battle with glioblastoma brain cancer, Mike Childress took his last breath on earth and entered into the presence of God. Mike’s positive attitude, courage, and complete faith in God were an inspiration to all who knew him. 

About the Authors

Throughout their 40 years of marriage, Mike and Annette Childress have always had a heart for children.  Annette, who has a Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Education, touched countless young lives during her 30 years of service as an elementary teacher and librarian.

Mike, an accomplished pen and ink artist, retired in 2007 after a successful 38-year career as the manager of public affairs for a large chemical company. He was a great man of faith and an adored Sunday School teacher.

Together they taught children in church for over 35 years. For the past 20 years, they successfully used a curriculum written by Annette to teach a new Christian class to hundreds of new believers ages 4-11.

In 2009, they were led by God to start a Christian coloring book ministry, Reaching Kids 4 Christ. Through the years, God has greatly blessed the ministry and has used the simple message in the books to help reach over 233,000 children in 35 countries around the world for Christ. It has been amazing to see how God has used Reaching Kids 4 Christ to make a difference for all eternity in the lives of children and adults in some of the most remote areas of the world!

“God is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us.”  Ephesians 3:20
