Our first guest is author and blogger Kimberly Gauthier switched her dogs to a raw diet after trying a myriad of alternatives to help her sick dog.   Once doing so, she saw numerous changes in her dogs’ health.  So much so, that she dedicated her blog “Keep the Tail Wagging®” to this exact subject.  She also authored two books – one “A Novice’s Guide to Raw Feeding for Dogs” – available now, and another due for release this summer.

She says browse the aisles at your local pet store, and you might notice an increasing number of foods touted as having raw ingredients.  Raw diets have been growing in popularity as some consumers have become convinced of the purported benefits—from shinier coats and cleaner teeth, to a longer life.  Author and blogger, Kimberly Gauthier is one such person.



Lorilee Craker is the editor of Homespun:  Amish and Mennonite Women in Their Own Words. She describes herself as a simple Mennonite girl from the prairies and didn’t know there was anything “peculiar” about being Mennonite until she moved from Winnipeg, Manitoba to Chicago, Illinois for college. It was then that she realized most people outside of Mennonite communities assumed she had come from buggy-driving, bonnet-wearing, butter-churning folk. Everyone seemed to think that being Amish or Old Order Mennonite and being her kind of Mennonite were one and the same. The experience of explaining the differences led her to writing the book, Money Secrets of the Amish (an Audie Awards finalist which she also narrated)

A freelance journalist, blogger and speaker, Craker was an entertainment writer for The Grand Rapids Press for seventeen years.  She has been featured in many media outlets including The Wall Street JournalTime and People. She is the author of fifteen books, including Anne of Green Gables, My Daughter, and MeMy Journey to Heaven with Marv Besteman, and the New York Times bestseller Through the Story with Lynne Spears. The proud founder of a writing day camp for middle schoolers, Craker lives in Grand Rapids, MI with her husband and their three children. Learn more about Lorilee Craker online at lorileecraker.com.

Our first guest today is Author, Linda Fergerson will be discussing her newest book, A Royal Family: The Lion and the Butterfly Series, Book Two. Her first book, A Royal Dance, offered a glimpse of life in the tumultuous and exciting days when some Jews were starting to believe a young rabbi from Nazareth was the promised Messiah. Into those days, Fergerson introduces the character of Jerusha, a young Jewish woman who bears a secret that breaks her heart and threatens to break her spirit, even as she holds onto her father’s promise that she is royalty from the tribe of Judah and will one day dance before the King. She admits to being surprised by God’s use of writing in granting her healing. In her own life, when she turned to God, and knew he loved her, had redeemed her and set her free, her joy bubbled over into dance and ministry to others.  But author Linda Fergerson’s books also have a subtext that relates to her own story of pain and heartbreak, as she has woven into the books her own heartbreak of abuse, and then later, years of infertility.  Yet God has healed her and she has come through her experiences triumphant.

Our second guest is Author and Ordained Evangelist Fredrick Ezeji-Okoye he will be discussing his recently-released new book, Who Prays for the Pastor?  Aimed at an audience of both pastors as well as their parishioners, Ezeji-Okoye offers practical information for both parishioners as well as pastors on a variety of subjects, all aimed at supporting pastors in their life and work.  He had been called to minister to those who minister, being led by God to create an organization called the Men of Faith Network.

“Parishioners should share the burden of praying for our pastors. Week after week, we come to receive that which God has poured into them. We have many expectations of them, expressed and unexpressed,” Ezeji-Okoye explains.  “How often does the average congregant stop to consider the pastor’s needs? If the pastor is doing all the pouring, how is he being replenished? It is time to become the ones who pray for our pastors.” Who Prays for the Pastor? [ISBN: 978-1-946889-48-5, $9.99] was published by Carpenter’s Son Publishing. It is available from online retailers and selected book stores.
