BEHIND THE STORY
Albert Stories Help Children Talk About Anxiety Through Story.
Erik Bennett first wrote stories during Math class in third grade and has the report card to prove it, "He daydreams sometimes." Later, this imagination made its way into the bedtime routine of creating stories with each of his children.
Since many children, including one of their own from the ages of 9 to 13, wrestle with anxiety, Erik created Albert Stories with a few things in mind; to be a resource for parents; a fun, meaningful story with beautiful art kids loved; and a platform to continue conversations centered on faith and anxiety.
Erik pastored and counseled families for 25 years and now coaches organizations in leadership and change. He resides in beautiful South Florida with his wife, three children, and two dogs while pursuing his Ph.D.
Nathalie White’s love of art, design, and culture started at a young age, drawing and sketching. She went on to study architecture at the University of Florida and now resides with her husband and two children in sunny Southwest Florida.
She currently practices architecture and stays inspired by all design forms, whether a building, sketching or photography. Her adventures in nature still inspire her the most.
Nathalie met The Bennett's while a student in the ministry Erik pastored. She met weekly with Erik's wife, ate all of their cookies, and became a part of their extended family of students. Please feel free to ask Nathalie how many times she led creative pranks on the Bennett's home.
