“Seasons Of Friendship”

You can learn a lot from a chicken, especially when it’s a chicken like Gracie!

Timid and shy, Gracie stayed mostly to herself and away from the other young chicks. Without her best friend, Bessie, she may never have survived those difficult first weeks.

The stories in this collection take place over a single year and tell how a group of chickens became a family of friends. Scattered throughout are bits of “chicken wisdom.” Some are easy to spot, and others may need some scratching and pecking to find.

Journey through “Seasons Of Friendship” with Gracie and her friends and see how her transformation “from least to leader” unfolds in their beautiful garden home.

Based on my real experiences with raising my own backyard chickens, this book will hopefully have you saying, “I wish I had a friend like Gracie.”

After discussing this with Gracie and Bessie, we have decided to give any and all royalties from “Seasons Of Friendship” until the end of the year to the women’s group at St. John’s Church that sponsors our annual Flower Festival which will be from April 26th through 28th. This year, the Flower Festival follows their Hatchday, April 25th. Each chapter in “Seasons Of Friendship” is illustrated with garden plants as a celebration of beauty and friendship. What a perfect combination of events!

The “A.W.E.-some” women of St. John’s always give and they always give their very best. They love everyone no matter what, and I’ve never known them to turn anyone away who needed help. They always have a smile and a kind word, particularly for those who are the most vulnerable and have no voice. These are just some of the reasons why Gracie and Bessie call them their friends!

My Life With Gracie taught me there is never a season when we don’t need friendship.

Happy Hatchday, Gracie and Bessie!

 

Happy Hatchday, Gracie and Bessie! Is there a better way to celebrate than with a corn cupcake topped with mashed avocado and an earthworm?!? Well maybe not for you, but for the rest of us, there is! How about an eBook full of your stories?!?

Our church is in the heart of the oldest part of our city which has a large homeless population. There are many others who have a home but are still struggling in many ways. At St. John’s, we love. We help. No strings attached.

After you’ve enjoyed a free “Thank You” copy, please consider purchasing “Seasons Of Friendship” through Barnes and Noble between April 25th and December 31st. You will be doing a wonderful kindness that will help people who simply need a loving friend who will accept and welcome them just as they are.
