A good author should recognize the gift in a colleague, and also acknowledge that gift. I'll let you be the judge of my penmanship when my newest book "King Rules" hits the stands on June 10.
 
Meanwhile, please read the latest offering, "A Travel Guide to Life," by my friend Anthony DeStefano. The book, one in a series of Travel Guides, is filled with insights and how to's straight from the pen of one who successfully navigates the ups and downs of life with candor, humility, repentance, and humor.
 
To date this new release becomes a favorite, although all of Anthony's books are super. My grandchildren adore his children's books. We recently read "A Travel Guide to Heaven for Children." Delightful!
 
On a personal note, I remember praying for Anthony when he was preparing for his father's transition from this life. He stoically bore it all while helping others to navigate their way through such a trying season.
 
I also remember Anthony tolerating my monologue about why I'm a Star Trek fan. I was lamenting about how my critics consider my Sci-Fi passion to be sinful. After all, they reason, "Christians don't have time for fantasy. Jesus is the real deal."
 
Yes, Jesus is real, and thank God for His blood, His love, His mercy and His grace. I'm not perfect, and we all need prayer.  
 
I remember Anthony saying: "Alveda. We're not perfect in this life. You pray for me, I'll pray for you."
 
On that note, I'll close here with a prayer that you'll read our books and enjoy them. We all need a good Travel Guide. Don't leave home without this gem. Blessings.
