Regional Book Fair Features Author John Stephens' Optimistic Book, 9/26
Helen Keller once said, "Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence." Readers looking for a much-needed dose of optimism to transform their lives will find it in author John Stephens' book, titled With Peace in Mind, which is set to be featured in an upcoming Regional Book Exhibit this year.
Driven to inspire and move others to experience and accept God's presence, the author weaves very short, heart-warming stories, stirring poetry, and encouraging one-act plays. In the story "A Bedtime Story," two three-year-olds of different races fight over a toy car, but end up playing together. In the poem "A Meditation in Prayer," readers will learn to pray through the ABC to W of this prayer. In a short anecdote, readers will discover how to think of others instead of just themselves. These, and many other brilliant literary pieces, await readers.
With Peace in Mind is an anthology of concise yet sharp prose and poetry which contains insightful messages that strike directly to the heart and soul, propelling readers to an inspiring journey. With so many poems and short stories people can easily relate with, Stephens' message about God's love, kindness to others, faith, hope, and courage will surely resound in the smiles, hearts and souls of readers.
This collection is a great way to start one's day; reading one short story or poem every morning, and trying to live-in word and action-its important message throughout the day.
