Cathy Parker, author of Northern Lights: One Woman, Two Teams, and the Football Field That Changed Their LivesShe will discuss her book an inspiring story and beautiful reminder of how we’re sometimes called to the most unlikely of causes—and how, when we believe in something bigger than ourselves, we can change our own lives and the lives of others for the better.

 

Cathy Parker had no idea her life was about to change until ESPN feature about a football team from the Arctic Circle lit a fire in her soul that she couldn’t ignore. A stirring within her to help the Barrow Whalers football team in a struggling community in Barrow, Alaska, almost 4,000 miles away from her home in Jacksonville, Florida, started a nationwide movement that raised over half a million dollars to build an artificial-turf stadium for a team that needed it. Overcoming obstacle after obstacle, what started out as a call within Cathy became so much bigger and brought two football teams together in surprising (and sometimes hilarious) ways. Her book and the story that will soon be a major motion picture from director Andy Tennant (Sweet Home Alabama, Hitch, Ever After).

Cathy Parker and her husband, Carl, have raised four children, all at the ballfields. Cathy has experienced the extreme highs and lows of raising athletes and can relate to the toll athletics can have on the family. She founded the not-for-profits to help athletes and their families deal with the realities of sports and use their influence for good. Her not-for-profits are Athletes To Champions and Beyond the Ballfield.

For over 30 years has traveled extensively as a camp meeting, revival and conference speaker, Troy, his wife Mandy and their four children live in Williamsburg, Ohio. Pastor Ervin has appeared on both Television and radio and has authored numerous books. Today he will discuss his newest book “Unsinkable Significance”.  Pastor Troy Ervin is our newest Expert on Let’s Just Talk!!

 

Pastor and author, Troy Ervin, in his engaging book, Unsinkable Significance, answers some of life’s deepest wonderings revealed in this notable biblical story.

Good News: God Puts Your Purpose Within Reach!Thousands of years ago, in the book of Kings, a lesser-known but remarkable story is chronicled. It involves a prophet, an ambitious worker, a floating ax head, a stick—and your destiny.

Maybe you’ve searched for wholeness, purpose, and significance for years and never known what’s holding you back. We’re all born asking questions: “How do I find success?” “How do I get from where I am now to where I want to be?” “Where do I go and what should I do?” But the biggest question of all . . . the one we have all asked ourselves at one time or another is, “Why am I here?”

In this book, you will discover…
• The single, true way to find significance in your life
• The joy of surrender and brokenness
• How to uncover and live out a significant life
• How to stop trying to fix problems without God’s help
• When it seems like it’s over, IT’S NOT
• Your value and worth are more than a name, status, title, or notoriety
• Even in anonymity, how to will leave a lasting impression
• How your reason for living will reveal itself

“Each of us is searching for significance. But what we don’t realize is that it’s not found where we expect it. Instead, it’s discovered in a most unusual place, brokenness. Troy Ervin’s excellent book, Unsinkable Significance, will help you understand ‘why you are here’ from a profoundly unique perspective found in a rarely told story about a stick in the Bible. This book touched me so deeply that I have a small branch from a tree sitting on my desk as a reminder of God’s truth from this book. Full of captivating stories and practical examples, Unsinkable Significance will not leave you the way it found you. It will compel you to live your life, from this day forward, in a way that matters. I highly recommend it.”

Our guest today is Author Donald Greco. Don has completed four of the five stories in his masterful series called The Youngstown Quintet.  We will be discussing today his newest Novel and how he creates his characters. The last, yet untitled, novel of the Quintet will be published soon.

Greco’s stories are not the kinds of novels that are currently in vogue.  There are no spies, vampires, zombies, space aliens, super beings, or bodice rippers.  Instead, the Quintet consists of unrelated stories that are about ordinary people who lead extraordinary lives.

 

 

 

His readers are drawn into the stories by his wonderful characters and find themselves transported into the world in which the stories exist, all of them in Youngstown, Ohio, in various times of the 20th century.  And yet the pages seem to turn quickly as the characters lead each other through the novels.

 

 

 

His natural writing style is strong yet unadorned and an easy read.  And his characters come to life in the readers’ imaginations, sometimes seeming to jump off the pages as each story unwinds.  And finally, there are realistic and enchanting love stories that form the backbone of each of the novels in the Quintet. All four current novels of the Youngstown Quintet are available, both in book form and as Kindle editions, from Amazon.  Search them on Amazon by “Donald Greco” or “The Youngstown Quintet.” For more information go to dongreconovels.com
