Comments from Readers

We have been so encouraged by all of the positive feedback from those who have read our book. Here is what one reader had to say:

"Just finished reading your book - it was very powerful and a tribute to our God. We rejoice that HE is able to make beauty for ashes and give peace through a spirit of heaviness. My heart ached for you as I read your journey and then gave praise as you testified to WHO ...God is and what He has done for us."

And this is what our pastor sent out to the congregation after he read our book:
"Get the Reece's book. You'll be glad you did."

Thank you to all who have taken the time to give us feedback. We'll share more as we get more feedback.

Grandpa is also a Writer

Grandma isn't the only writer in this family. Our book Aloha is Forever was co-authored by both of us, Rick and Sharon Reece. In some places in the book it will be difficult to tell whose voice is speaking. In other places we specify so you know without a doubt which one is doing the writing.

But since it is our story, we wanted to tell it together, as one voice as much as possible. And I think we succeeded in a very unique way!

Now Grandpa is working on the sequel to the first book and he is the one doing the majority of the writing. I will be editor and contributor and of course, it will be just as much our story as the first one is. We still haven't come up with a good name for the second book yet, but it may be something like: Four Spiritual Tsunamis that Will Change the World. Unless we can come up with something that is shorter and catchier, this title really tells what the book is about. It tells the spiritual insights into revival that came as a result of losing our son in Hawaii. So get ready to read what Grandpa has to say! He's the real story teller of the family!
