An Inspirational Read

Last year I was blessed with a win from my friend Terri's blog. The prize was an autographed copy of her son's book: To Live, To Think, To Hope - Inspirational Quotes by Helen Keller

I've always been in awe of this amazing woman.  I am even more so after reading this book and the way that Matthew Gordon organized the material and the research that he did.  He meticulously grouped sections together by theme and gave wonderful details of Helen's life as an introduction to each one. I learned so much about Helen, her life and he even included some wonderful photos I had not seen before. Even better, my oldest saw the book and loved reading about this inspirational and giving woman.  Great for all ages!

I also received a beautiful bookmark from Matthew's fiance Christine Fredendall. She is a wonderfully unique artist with a mesmerizing Etsy shop, Handmade Creations by Christine Frendendall. All of her pieces are  hand made originals and she does custom orders as well.

I hope you will pay them both a visit.  It is such a blessing to have such talented people sharing the things they love with others. Many thanks to Terri, Matthew and Christine for these special gifts! Thanks for visiting and have a great day!
