Sophia Lurue Guyton


Sophia Lurue Guyton learned to read when she was three, and by the time she was seven, she had already published her first book, The Adventures of Mia and Jace.

“God gave her a message and told her that he wanted other people to know about him,” says Tabitha Lamb, Sophia’s mom. “Her goal was to write a letter to everyone in the whole world.” Once Sophia realized the enormity of finding so many addresses, she decided to write a book instead.

Available on Amazon, the 32-chapter book about life lessons on character and integrity was completed in five months, and the stories feature characters based on herself, older brother Jace, and several of her favorite toys. 

A third grader at Math Science & Arts Academy West in Plaquemine, Sophia, now eight, hasn’t published anything more since the book was released. “She’ll think about it every now and again,” Tabitha says. “She actually has enough to write another one. She hasn’t said that she’s ready yet.”

Tabitha has a very strong religious background, and the family starts their mornings and ends their evenings with Bible study, so the content of Sophia’s book wasn’t all that surprising.

A gifted student, Sophia loves art and reading. Spending time with her miniature poodle, Snowball, has been one way she’s been surviving the changes wrought by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Sophia’s writing ability and concern for others are just two of the characteristics that make her such an amazing kid. “She’s so considerate and very articulate and intelligent, even though super, super shy,” Tabitha says.
