Finding Our Strength and Courage – October 21, 2020

Join us with authors Richard Marks, Robert Gibson, and Lisa Strahs-Lorenc.

Richard Marks, author of “Rise to the Sun: 7 Footsteps and 7 Prayers for Getting Out of Hell” – Rise to the Sun is a courageous exploration of personal trauma, recovery, and expansion. A timely and necessary work, it illustrates how humankind must seek to heal its own innate suffering before it can hope to succeed in healing the various external crises affecting our planet. Why bother? Why forgive? What are active ways to engage? How do I break free? What does finding freedom mean? The art of living is learning to be good to ourselves. The 7 Footsteps symbolize the way forward—personally, collectively, or spiritually. Guiding us to feel safe in the face of change, this book includes stories and insights from many diverse personalities. Finding freedom is a life-long aspiration that lights our way out of hell. The 7 Footsteps and 7 Prayers unlock a kinder, gentler, and long-lasting engine for transformation.

Robert Gibson, author of “Make it Raine” – “Make it Raine.”That’s the line that made all the women swoon. Hooked on the erotic offerings and tantalizing, seductive verse from performance poet Raine, women melted at the power of his voice. His words call to Jasmine, a spitfire of a woman captivated by the taste of his power and ability to make women weak whenever he speaks. Her desire to play with passion’s fire drives the two into a spontaneous night that will forever alter their lives. Raine’s main goal is to climb the heights of stardom, but Jasmine is not making it easy on him to walk away. Will Raine man up and realize things have changed, or will he continue to use his words to indulge his carnal desires?


Lisa Strahs-Lorenc, author of “Pancreatic Cancer: Families Move On”Pancreatic Cancer: Families Move On is a follow-up book from the book that was published on September 3, 2010, entitled Pancreatic Cancer: It’s a Family Affair.
