The night of the big launch!
The night before and the morning of the big launch, the family joined together in a first-time-ever work-party. There was much fun, laughter, clowning, and even some hard work.
For me this was one of the highlights of the evening: having almost my entire family around, working together. I missed my daughter and family far away in freezing Kazakhstan but everyone else was there – even the dog! read more
Nothing can sap a person’s strength and hope quite like a cancer diagnosis – unless it is the energy-stealing radiation, chemotherapy and surgeries faced in the fight to survive. But one can find hope and strength in the pages of Scripture and in the experience of someone who has been there. read more
Why would you buy Strength Renewed, Meditations for Your Journey through Breast Cancer?
“Nothing can sap a person’s strength and hope quite like a cancer diagnosis – unless it is the energy-stealing radiation, chemotherapy and surgeries faced in the fight to survive. But one can find hope and strength in the pages of Scripture and in the experience of someone who has been there.”
So says the editorial blurb for Strength Renewed.
is an encouraging devotional by Shirley Corder for those living in the valley of cancer, whether as a patient or a carer.
What is its format?
Meditations combine Scripture and stories from the author’s own experience. Reader may choose to read the short chapters in sequential order, moving through a typical cancer journey from diagnosis through treatment. However, each devotion stands on its own, so readers can go directly to the entry that speaks to their need.
In addition to offering help to those traversing the traumatic valley of cancer, many have written to claim how this book has helped them face other types of crises.

I ended my previous post in this series with the question, “What Is a Book Launch?”
I also asked, “If you were invited to a book launch, what would you expect?”
A few of you answered, and I’ve also asked a number of other people. The general feeling is that the one thing
you have to have at a book launch is a book.
This series started with the analogy of a U-turn.
Today, Strength Renewed reached the end of one road, and the beginning of another. It came to the end of the road to publication, and is slowly turning onto the road to sales and reviews. read more
Up until now, I’ve been giving you the background story as to how the Lord took the germ of an idea and grew it into a book that will soon be available across the globe. I say the Lord. I’m hoping that if you’ve read through this story, you will see, as I have, that this has been no casual procedure. read more
In today’s post I decided to walk you through the various steps that transformed my manuscript, Rise and Soar, into the book, Strength Renewed. Before I embarked on this journey, I had no idea of all that would be involved. read more
Over the next weeks I basked in the excitement. Rise and Soar was really going to be published. At last, I felt like a “real author”. I wrote at my desktop. I wrote on the verandah. I wrote at the swimming pool. And I wrote in bed. read more
Before arriving at the Florida Christian Writers’ Conference, I had selected four possible editors to preview my proposal for Rise and Soar (now called Strength Renewed). I intended to see that one of the four got my manuscript before the start of the conference, and I would make appointments to see the other three during the conference. read more
