It's Almost Time to Meet Maryam!
<div class="fb-like" data-share="true" data-width="450" data-show-faces="true"> </div> In exactly 28 days, Maryam will be on her way to many of your mailboxes to meet you! On December 19, 2016, Messages From Maryam will be available on Amazon- just in time for your last minute holiday shopping! The final countdown has begun, and Kendra and I could not be more excited (or nervous) to share our work with you!
These last few weeks leading up to the release will be jam-packed with putting finishing touches on the illustrations and layout, as well as fact-checking our background information one last time. We are planning to canvas our town with posters about the upcoming release of Messages From Maryam. Keep your eyes open if you live in the Shenandoah Valley!
Kendra and I are so thankful to have had the opportunity to share Messages From Maryam with a captive audience at our home church today. We had a great time sharing with the students what it means to be a refugee, how to befriend refugee children at school, and, of course, talking about Maryam. We are grateful to have a church that supports our vision of publishing a book, and more importantly, a church that supports refugee families! Today, the children's ministry created medical kits to be distributed to local refugee families like Maryam's.
We are anxious to see how Messages From Maryam will continue to increase awareness about the lives of refugee children and call to action the people whose lives have been touched by refugees.
