Writing Faith, Writing Life: A Family
Offered in words and pictures, these are stories of a family. Maybe you were there for some of them.
by Nan Heldenbrand Morrissette, Contributor and Editor
After my father died, late in 2001, my mother wrote a book about their lives together. To me, that book symbolized her wonderful courage and spirit. Excerpts from her book, "Chimps in the Kitchen, Lions in the Cellar," are included in the pages of this volume.
There are also many of the E-Devotions I have written for The Church @ The Springs, Ocala. (E-Devotions are inspirational writings by a small group of Church @ The Springs members, showing how we live our daily, ordinary human lives through Faith in God. The pieces are delivered daily via a free e-mail subscription.) A list of scriptures quoted is included at the end. Praise God!
Pieces from my daughter and her three beautiful and very creative children are here, too - they are the best. And there are three of my husband's seminary essays.
My son-in-law provided most of the photos of the children. There are also shots of the Maine coast, which we all miss. Family and friends have contributed pictures.
These are stories of a family. Maybe you were there for some of them.
