Survivial, Stories, and a Book Signing


Recently fellow author Nancy Kennedy posted on Facebook:

Newlyweds Josh and Sara moved to Colorado, and in that sunny state, they felt like they were on vacation every day. Early one morning, Josh kissed a sleepy Sara good-bye and headed off to Keystone ski resort. It was the last time Sara saw her husband alive, and the beginning of her tidal wave of grief.

My dear friend Elsi Dodge has two stories in this book, making it an extra-special project to me.

If you’re looking for an inspirational gift or a good read, you can order a signed, gift-wrapped copy by emailing me at Cost, including shipping, is $20. (I bet I can get Elsi to sign it, too.)

We will be on KPOF 910 AM on Tuesday, November 25th from 8-9AM to talk about our book at the Breakfast Table with Roy and Denise. Tune in on-line!

Saturday, November 29th we’re signing books at Mardel’s. We’d love to have you stop by and say hello.

Josh died 15 years ago, and at the time a good friend told me I “had a lot of life left to live.” She was right, though that first Thanksgiving and Christmas were excruciating. Now I often feel like life is just beginning.

Wherever you find yourself as the holidays approach, I pray you will seek God’s truth and love. He is so wildly in love with us.

Lord, give us the grace to believe You care for us. You carry us through tragedy and through the mundane day-to-day. Bless those reading this. In so many ways, we are all survivors. Amen.

  1. I’m so glad to hear you say that your life is all about beginnings! It was a pleasure to work with you and to include your story in my book. I’ll tune into the radio program for sure! Wish I could be at the signing. Sigh.

    1. We’ll take photos at the signing for you! Thanks again for the privilege of being a part of this book. Blessings and many wonderful beginnings to you, too, Nancy!

  2. Congratulations on the book.
    Even more, CONGRATULATIONS on living life and living life to the fullest through the pain and grief and coming out on the other side.

  3. Karyn,
    This year, more than ever, I know God’s goodness towards me. It has nothing to do with a book, but Him––He’s always been here, always sovereign, always loving. With Myron and my girls, I feel blessings on blessings. More than that, He has made Himself known to me, and what a joy that is.

    I pray blessings to you and yours! I hope you are all well as you celebrate life and love this Thanksgiving and Christmas season.
