Not long after I started this website, I wrote a post about a dear friend, Erika Hirschman, who has battled three different cancers. She recently published an article in the bold. E-magazine about how faith and family helped her overcome devastation and find Hope. I encourage you to read her remarkable story.
What a great day!! Tim, Andrew and I met so many people at the Michigan Catholic Writers Event in Jackson today. Catholic Authors from all over Southern Michigan came together to discuss their books and their writing experiences. Thanks to Good Shepard Catholic Radio for some ‘live radio air-time’ and Deacon Tom for being a great host as I shared some of our family’s story.
One thing of the many things I will take away from this experience is the need for people to share their stories about how God works in their lives. These stories provide hope in what can be a dark world.
As a bonus, Andrew met Doug Shumard, an author, Good Shepard Board member….and former pilot! Doug gave Andrew some pointers on pursuing a pilot career and even gifted Andrew a pilot’s headset.
Blessings All…I am excited to announce Finding Hope on Vegas will be in Jackson, MI, at the Queen of the Miraculous Medal Church for the annual Catholic Authors of Michigan event on March 30, 2019. Authors will be available for meet and greet sessions and book signings from 10:00am – 2:00pm. Rumor has it they will even be interviewed by one of the sponsors, Good Shepherd Catholic Radio. So if you are in the area, stop by to meet some fantastic, local authors, or tune in to find your next great read.
I would like to thank Brenda Boyce from the Gladwin Church of the Nazarene for inviting me to be the keynote speaker for their Ladies’ Night Out Event. Prayer was the topic for the night. We discussed the types (vocal, meditative, contemplative) and forms (praise, thanksgiving, intercessory, contrition) of prayer. I shared the lessons I learned and how prayer brought glimmers of peace to our distraught family throughout our Vegas Crisis. The ladies were wonderful hosts. The food was delicious, the fellowship was warm, and music was uplifting!
