ADVANCE PRAISE FOR MY MEMOIR


I am thrilled to post my first book blurb!


"Becky Povich has a light and whimsical way with words, and a knack for making the everyday seem a bit more special."  -- Philip Gulley

Seeing the above words written by the fantastic author Philip Gulley, makes me feel as if I'm dreaming! I'm so excited and I can't imagine what I'll actually do when I'm holding my book in my hot little hands, reading Philip's recommendation. Wow! 


I borrowed the following from his website: Philip Gulley is a Quaker pastor and beloved writer and speaker from Danville, Indiana.  An eclectic writer, Gulley has published 17 books, including the acclaimed Harmony series..... and the best-selling Porch Talk series... Philip has also written four books on Christianity. 

      

I've read quite a few of the fictional Harmony Series books and I just love them. It's small town life at its best.


Thank you, Philip, from the bottom of my heart. This means the world to me. 



*Welcome to my newest follower, Rita. I hope you'll stop by often and always enjoy what you read and see! Thank you! *
