“Hi Young World”: a compelling coming-of-age story. “Hi Young World” is the creation of published author Millee Horton, a down-home Christian Southern girl and aspiring author with a city toughness.

Horton shares, “My faith walk started as a young child. I grew up with a single, devout, strict Christian mother, and we lived with my great-grandmother. Like many black children, my life revolved around church. I couldn’t find much fault with my mom because all she did was take me to church. Therefore, it was easy for me to believe the words that she spoke to me. She was the first and only lady in my church that I witnessed speaking in tongues as a child. (It would be years later that I received interpretation for those unfamiliar words that I heard my mom speak when I was a child.) Since all I did was play in the yard or play in the house, my imagination could only go so far with baby dolls and Barbies. So on Sundays, after church always seemed to be good days to play church. If we didn’t do anything else, we studied the saints to a T. So when we got home, we had church. It was our turn. We sang, we shouted and jumped around and cried out to God. Now, I know why so many black churches are on every other corner of the street.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Millee Horton’s new book is heartfelt, plainspoken fictional account drawn largely from real life.

Just as the main character and the author both have learned through good example to put their trust in the Lord, readers of all ages will be touched by the ring of truth in her story and be moved to do the same.
