Hold My Hand, Mama

by Gabrielle Martin
My story

​Hi there!  I’m Gabe, a novice children's book author from Springfield, Missouri.  I'm a full-time working mama and wife to my high school sweetheart, Eric. Together we have two beautiful daughters, Alivia (Livvy) & Colette (Coco). My girls were the inspiration behind this book, and my motivation to see it through.


Professionally, I am an event planner, philanthropist and marketing enthusiast (oh, and I absolutely love to sing!). I hold a Master of Arts degree in Integrated Marketing Communication from Drury University and a Bachelor of Arts in Communication from the University of Tulsa.


I've been blessed with an incredibly supportive (and very large) family grounded in our faith. I live outside of the box- I like a good challenge- and I hope to inspire others to push boundaries and never stop achieving. 

"Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail."     

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
