    “For the first time, I looked back at the shooting event as an event that happened to more people than just me and my friends who were killed. This time, from outside my cocoon, I looked at the damage caused to the lives of everyone else, and not just me. I felt like I finally opened my eyes for the first time since I’d closed them to focus on the sounds of the shots when I was locating the shooter for the 911 operator. I observed how people responded differently to everyday occurrences now. They’d changed, just as I had.” -Laurel Myers, author

  • If Not for the Love of Mother

    If Not for the Love of Mother: A Tribute

    This book is a tribute to a Mother/Woman who was instrumental in the development of many lives. She shared herself with her family, friends, church family, and strangers that she met. She was always welcoming. She was always giving. She was called by many as “Mama Gordon”! She possessed a loving and determined spirit. People gravitated to her. She embraced them.

    I wrote this book to try and capture how much she meant to me and those she knew and loved. She left a void which is now filled with memories that will last forever. I pray to continue to grow and share her love.

  • Living in a Land Where no Apples Grow

    Living in a Land Where no Apples Grow

    Hi, there!

    It’s so nice meeting you. I’m very happy to see that you're interested in reading my adventures. Why don’t I give you a sneak peek of my story?

    Heading to an unknown land to preach the good news to a northern Indian tribe living just above the Arctic Circle may not sound like a good life but I didn’t care. As long as I am with my husband, I can do everything. And with Christ on our side, we left everything behind to live in the remote wilderness of Alaska.

    Oh, what was life like while being there? Well, we have to face subzero temperatures, eat an unbalanced and sometimes unusual diet, and deal with wild animals, unpaved roads, and a number of threats to our safety. But we did everything for the glory of God.

    So, I hope you will enjoy this book as much as I enjoy writing it. May our story bring you so much joy and strengthen your faith in Him.

    Love,
    Christel
