I am a 5th grade teacher in Gwinnett County and your words of encouragement and direction are so needed in this community. I plan to talk to the parents and pass the book on to them to help instill their worth on this earth.

Your book is like food for your soul, rain to an earth that is dry. Thanks, I look forward to passing it on to others that are dear to me. I pray they will find fulfillment in it, as I did.
