Book Launch Celebration

August 27, 2014 is an evening I will never forget. The launch of Eyewitness to a Savior was celebrated and more than 120 people attended the event. Pastel balloons created  a festive feel as guests nibbled on pastries and fruit. Beautiful hand bells were played, an excerpt from the book was read and signings took place during this monumental evening. The pictures from the book were displayed with descriptions depicting the meaning behind each photograph. A highlight for me was the unexpected arrival of my daughter-in-law, Laura and grandchildren, Clara and Garrett carrying flowers for their Nana. Many people supported the event from the church community, Bible studies, Dairy Queen organization, friends, and even a former student. Raffle tickets revealed winners of DQ gift cards and a signed hardcover book. The cake was an identical replication of the book cover created by DQ. I loved signing books and hearing the stories of those who would read them. God tremendously blessed me with support and love and I pray those who read this book will draw close to the Author Himself, the Lord Almighty.

Cherish One Another

cherishThis week my Facebook and twitter accounts were inactive. This is because I was in North Carolina visiting my parents. Dad has Parkinson’s’ Disease which may have stolen some of his physical abilities but not his sense of humor and perseverance. I loved watching my mom dutifully serve as his advocate, hold his hand, and offer a kiss and encouragement.  This brought to mind our Savior’s clear instruction to love one another. Time is fleeting and we may not always have a second chance to express our adoration to those around us.  Cherish one another and be thankful for each moment you have together. This is truly a heavenly gift.

Navigating Through Social Media

Hand holding a Social Media 3d SphereMarketing a book is exciting and challenging at the same time. Thanks to my talented daughter in law, Mary Gainor, you are able to view this magnificent website. I am learning words like domain, host, and tweet. Twitter has been really interesting. I am able to follow authors and Christian leaders I greatly admire. I am amazed at the number of people I know who use this communication especially those in my age bracket. I am blessed by my family who patiently explain the aspects and benefits of social media. I hope to improve upon this marketing technique as I enjoy this personal connection with you. God bless you.
