Believe Kids Books | Doug Gaston


The creator and author of BELIEVEBooks©.

As author, public servant, and educator, DOUG GASTON is devoted to the cause of lifting up the next generation of children to heights even greater than they can dream.

Doug serves as judge in his home county in Missouri, including as Juvenile Court Judge, presiding over cases of abuse, neglect, and abandonment. BELIEVE! began as a way to touch those lives with mentors and scholarships. Doug is also the Founder and Chair of The Constitution Revolution©, an innovative, experiential educational experience for high school and college students.

Every part of Doug’s work is built on a simple premise: That each and every life is exceptional, valuable, and eternal. He knows that your child was created with a mighty purpose to fulfill in this life, and his greatest prayer is that these little books will be a small step on that beautiful journey to create a magical, exceptional, and victorious life for your child!

The creative illustrator behind BELIEVEBooks©

LANDON KEMP is the kind of guy who never “grew out of” his love of cartoons. As a cartoonist, aspiring animator, and all-around pop culture nerd on the Autism/Asperger’s spectrum, he has spent four years living in Texas, studying up on animation and cartoon art and generally trying to make sense of a world that he feels has gone mad.

When not at work, he can be found watching animation, surfing the web, writing opinion articles, playing video games, listening to classic rock and 80s music, reading comics, and indulging in his love of 80s-90s pop culture (especially if it’s obscure,) cute animals, demented humor, and watching guys make fun of cheesy old movies and other media. He also believes in the value of picture books and especially their illustrations when it comes to helping children learn to read and appreciate visual art. He currently resides in Springfield, MO, and Believe is his first book.

All proceeds from our first book, BELIEVE! will be donated to Autism Speaks, in honor of our illustrator Landon, and his family. BELIEVE! stands for the idea that any and every single one of us can become all we were created to be, if only we believe in ourselves and the magic of a purpose-filled life we were meant to have! Landon, and his creations, are the living, laughing, and conquering embodiment of that idea! It is our hope that your contributions will help create thousands more stories just like Landon’s!
