Grace Sticks To Release November 1—Author Proceeds Will Support The Malala Fund

130912132101-malala-yousafzai-birmingham-amanpour-story-topThe day is almost here. My book Grace Sticks will release Nov. 1—and I feel like I’m having another baby, only without all the gore.

When you buy a copy, you’ll also be supporting the work of Malala Yousafzai, the 16-year-old Pakistani advocate for girls’ education who was shot in the head by the Taliban in 2012. Malala is now back in school and has started a non-profit organization to support the education of girls in places where girls seeking an education for themselves face cultures of violence and intimidation.

With the first 1,000 copies of Grace Sticks, every penny of the author proceeds will go towards the Malala Fund.

Consider buying a few copies as Christmas presents or for your next book club project. With discussion questions at the end of each chapter, Grace Sticks is also meant for use by Bible studies, book groups and other groups (both church and non-church). Thank you in advance for your support.
