New Book - My Brother's Keeper

My Brother's Keeper is a new book hot off the press. It is a children's book written about our dear friends Keith and Jeanne, from the perspective of their oldest son telling about caring for his handicapped brother.

This family is a constant inspiration to me. When I'm tempted to complain about the challenges of mothering, I imagine the endless doctor appointments, waking up at night to seizures and knowing your child will ever live a normal life and suddenly my load seems very small. Their acceptance and joy in caring for their son amaze me.

This book is one of a series of books about children facing changes in life. For you locals, it is available now at Mattie Lowery's. It should be at Country Drygoods sometime next week. You can order from Vision Publishers and read about the book from the author's perspective.

Christmas is coming...my children will be receiving a new book! How about yours!

  1. Just saw this book in V.P.'s flyer and I'm so anxious to read it! I did not know they were printing a book. We know these folks also, so I'm anxious to get my hands on it! Yes, their outlook on life is a chalenge to me also! Why is it that we complain about the littlest things when we have healthy children??! We have so much to be thankful for! Happy reading!! ~Yvonne Horst, PA.
