On Saturday, January 11, in a 10am program at the United Methodist Church in Mannsville, author Eileen K. Parsons will share the story of how she has blended the joys and sorrows of her life with a military family, her lifelong faith, and her passion for writing.
Her first Christian fiction novel, The First Rose of Summer, received Honorable Mention at the 2012-13 Los Angeles Book Festival.
“I have long had the desire to write stories and novels that would inspire people to draw closer to the Lord and the Truth of Christ,” Parsons says. “I hope my writing and speaking will touch hearts in a way that informs and uplifts.”
The First Rose of Summer is the story of how the strong moral character and faith of a young woman impacts the life of a young financial manager living a fast-paced, expensive lifestyle. The book has been praised as an exciting, yet clean page-turner from start to finish with suspense about how God’s plan will be carried out.
Born in Watertown, NY, Eileen now lives in Orwell, NY, with her husband Eric. Her son Daniel is studying to become a pastor. Eileen writes a Parsons Papers blog at http://parsonspapers.com/articles.
The January 11th program is a free presentation offered by Live More Ministries, a Christian outreach program for women that visits churches throughout the southern Jefferson County area. The Mannsville United Methodist Church Women will offer breakfast from 9am to 9:45am followed by the 10am-12pm presentation.
