Book Launch with a Difference

This entry is part 11 of the series Story Behind the Book
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.

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

About the Book Strength Renewed

This entry is part 15 of the series Story Behind the Book

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.

Corder_StrengthRenewed-3DStrength 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.
