Your book is excellent. I consider it an honor and a privilege to be included. I love the way you have transitioned from verbal stories into written form. The book is classic and will be a great blessing to many.” –Russel Stendal, Author, Radio Personality, and Missionary
“Beautiful reads when you need a little uplift, but don’t want a big book. I have really enjoyed these when I sit down for a minute during the day.” –Kindle E-book Review
“I’ve been creating interest and discussion with the grandchildren as we read the book together. The Bible references and Christian character (implied and explicit) give the work great depth. I was wowed by the research done. I’m recommending your book to everyone who will hear!” –Reader E-mail
I truly enjoyed your book! I did not want to put it down. The way you introduce the book and the way you write is superb. You wrote just like you think and talk…and it kept my attention. I want to order more copies as I have three grandchildren and would like to send each a copy. Thanks for producing a book about real lives and real people – you truly are a proverbial storyteller. –Reader E-mail
