This week, we feature three special books from Halo Publishing International and their wonderful authors. In I am a Vivor Leona Ashley writes about her daughter Abigail who has survived and flourished despite having her arm amputated in infancy. Crista Stewart wrote The Little Frog to help children understand to accept themselves and others just as God made them. Tina Schneider and Anna Discenzo and the students of The Montessori School at Holy Rosary collaborated on Remembering D. Remembering D is a poignant story of a young man named Demetrius Cameron-Lee Smith who made such a deep and permanent impression on so many hearts in his short lifetime that a book was written in his honor by his classmates and teacher. The bittersweet compilation of words, photographs and illustrations is dedicated to Demetrius, a brain cancer victim whose life was claimed at the tender age of twelve but who was an inspiration to all he met through his courage, zest for life and faith in God.[podcast]http://media.libsyn.com/media/catholicmoments/cm104.mp3[/podcast]
