Today is Veteran’s Day.  I would like to start off by thanking every Veteran out there who has served this country for our freedom.  Freedom is never free. It is a gift from those who have served.  Thank you for your service.

I’m excited to finally promote my book.  This story has been on my heart since I was in junior high, but it took me until I was an adult to find the courage to share.  

As you read through this book, I ask you to consider the gifts that were given throughout the entire story.  There are physical gifts and gifts of generosity in every chapter.  Some of those gifts are hidden in plain sight, and you have to dig deep into your soul to find them.  Many of these gifts were carried through, and became gifts to share with others; while other gifts were not so pleasant, but left an everlasting memory of love.

With technology, I feel we have lost our communication.  My book demonstrates how human connection touches our spirits for relationships.  This story was written as an example to engage in our children’s lives in all that we do, by teaching them to be independent and to become a part of our everyday world.  I believe it’s those special moments that make us who we are.  

This brings me to the gift of salvation in Jesus Christ at the cross.  This gift is for every individual that will accept it.  Once we accept His gift of saving our souls, we are encouraged by the Holy Spirit to continue and share Jesus with others.  It is a gift that keeps on giving, throughout eternity.  

For in Ephesians 2:10, we read, ‘For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.’  

May you have a splendid day, and please give your Veteran a hug of appreciation.
