Author, Speaker Challenges, Provides Encouragement for Parents
WHAT: “Don’t forget—you have just eighteen summers. Take time to make some memories.” These words spoken by her pastor after a child’s dedication one Sunday resonated with Michelle Cox. She was at the end of her eighteen summers with her youngest son and knew how quickly the time flew by. Even though she made an effort as a family to have fun and make memories, Cox found herself wishing she’d taken even more time to enjoy those precious fleeting moments with her sons.
Those poignant words inspired Cox to write a novel, Just 18 Summers, with author Rene Gutteridge. The book, which follows the intertwined stories of four families, will be released by Tyndale House Publishers in April.
Michelle is available for interviews to promote the release of Just 18 Summers. Suggested discussion topics include:
