Hi I'm J.Harvey

I am a writer, designer, photographer and illustrator. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I won my first art competition when I was eight. I am an educator and academic writer but my true passion is writing and illustrating books. Married with four amazing children.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a multi-generational member. My ancestors were faithful Mormon's and pioneers of the early church in New Zealand. My testimony is filled with personal revelation and faith promoting experiences. For example, after completing two years study at an elite Design School, I felt impressed to serve my mission at the end of my second year so I applied for sabbatical leave. The college denied my request fearing I would lose all my design knowledge and drawing skills. I prayed and fasted for approval but to no avail. Without college approval, I made preparations to serve my mission. Just as I was about to board the plane, my father handed me a letter from the college. They had reversed their decision and looked forward to my return. Three years later, I returned to the college. Shortly before my graduation, I entered and won a major national design competition.

How I live my faith

My wife and I are advisors to the young single adults and help them meet the challenges they face at university, at work and in their daily lives.
