Y’all. It’s here.
Today is the official release of my newest book Beads of Healing: Prayer, Trauma, and Spiritual Wholeness.
Oh my goodness. I just can’t stand it, I’m so excited.
The cover is SO gorgeous. That’s one reason I love it.
And it’s another book about prayer beads. That’s even more reason to love it.
But mostly, I love it because I feel like this is the book I was born to write. No kidding. Sure, it’s my fourth book, and I love my previous books a lot. But this one . . . this one just feels different.
It contains more of me than any of my previous books. It shares a story that even just a few years ago very few people knew. It points to God’s deep, healing, gorgeous grace. It describes ways to use prayer beads that could offer significant hope to someone in pain. And while it covers some difficult territory, it is – first, middle, and last – a love story. That’s how I know it’s the book I was born to write.
Because I am so super excited about this book, I’ve worked with my team to do a few things:
- We are offering a discount code on the book, both in my Studio and at Upper Room Books. Enter KVBOH17 to receive 20% off the book at checkout. (You can also get it on Amazon, though the code won’t work there.) (And yes, the book is available in paperback and digital formats.)
- We’ve created an entire website dedicated to the book. It features bonus content such as photos from events described in the book, videos, and stories of hope and healing submitted by others. One of my favorite pages on the site features gorgeous memes (created by my sister, Jackie) that allow you to share quotes from the book on social media (or save them to your computer for beautiful wallpaper).
- We partnered with a fabulous Etsy artist to create a series of twelve cards featuring my favorite quotes from the book. They are so fun! We designed them so you could hang them up on your mirror, sit them on your desk, mark a page in your book, or hand them out to friends. They’re available in my Etsy shop.
- We’re offering a giveaway! If you go to the comments below, or to our Facebook or Instagram pages, and share a story of when you experienced God’s healing touch (use #beadsofhealing), we will enter your name into a drawing. The winner will receive an autographed copy of the new book along with a set of quote cards. The deadline for entering is next Wednesday, March 8th.
I hope you will take time to check out the book. If you do, let me know what you think! I’d love to hear from you.
