Garlands of Grace
Photographs and Text by Debbie Winkler Hays
Photos and Scripture Selection by Sherrie Prater Doke
A Gift that will melt the hearts of Mothers and Friends Alike
This work celebrates a special friendship that developed in the midst of the world we all live in--too hectic, too noisy and too demanding. It flourished, however, because of a mutual respect for what is truly valuable in life. Never forgetting the importance of faith, family and friends, the authors found pleasure in the simplicity of their surroundings and sought meaning in the majesty and mystery of Gods creation. Dedicated to mothers and special friends, these photographs, enhanced by simple scriptures, share the feelings of two friends and capture moments in time, that speak to your spirit.
Garlands of Grace is a gift that promises to bring joy to the heart, memories to the mind, peace to the soul and a smile to the face of all who peruse its pages.About the Author
