~ More About Nanci J. Gravill’s new book Fresh Hope … Cleveland.

Here’s a special ingredient regarding my book:

Questions: Why Fresh Hope? Why this title?

Answers: In January 2009 when I started writing the text I had to have some kind of a title. I put the manuscript on my only available disk which was for my recipes. You know exactly where I’m going with this! Then, for lack of a better title, the book became Recipes for Living in Challenging Times.

However, I conducted a focus group study in August of 2009 to see if the book was really helpful. A focus group is a marketing tool. People used the book for about two weeks and then came back to answer questions about how helpful the book really was. It was one gentleman’s comment that really had the most impact on the direction and help this book offers. He said, “Nanci, with a female author and the word “recipes” in the title, I wouldn’t even pick it up!” I understood his point right away! Soon afterwards my friend and I brainstormed over lunch for a new title. I loved the word “fresh” because it really fit the text really well ~ it’s full of things that will give you a bright, new perspective. Then my friend pointed out how the book provided tons of “hope” for people in Cleveland and elsewhere – and it does. It’s been Fresh Hope … Cleveland ever since.

Take a peak at the book’s cover  above ~ look for the special touch the graphic designer provided for the concept of “HOPE.” Do you see it?

The series Brown Rice + Veggies with Ginger Sauce will be back next Tuesday, May 7.

Note: From this point forward as far as I  know, I’ll be blogging only on Tuesdays. I’m working on a new book and a few other opportunities have come my way which require me to adjust my schedule. I hope you’ll continue to stop by each week to read and be a part of this blog. I always appreciate your great comments and insight. Thank you so much!

Make it a great day! God Bless You ~ Nanci

Dear Friend,

You may tell me that your positive thoughts, your family, or your own energies and abilities give you power to live a great life. That’s all well and good but ultimately you can’t bring an end to illness for you or someone else. Even your best efforts can’t make things happen for you in life or stop things from happening like 9-11 or the Boston Marathon bombing. Only God has the power to do that.

If you are a follower of Christ (see Relationship with God tab on this blog), you know that prayer moves God — it’s POWERFUL. Here’s some of what my book Fresh Hope … Cleveland tells you in the third section:

Prayer is the most powerful resource you possess! It’s powerful because it allows      God to move in your life; it unleashes His power. Prayer can give comfort and peace of mind when you tell God your concerns. And while the answers may not come overnight, keep praying. When all is silent, your Heavenly Father is most at work in your life. Do you need a miracle today? God is there now waiting to help you.

Thursday is National Prayer Day. Spending just a few minutes thanking God and lifting up the needs of others along with yours will bring the answers that only God can bring!

PRAYER = Power for Your Life!

~More resources to help you in keeping with my book Fresh Hope … Cleveland.

My new series Brown Rice + Veggies with Ginger Sauce ~ will be back later this week. It’s full of great wisdom for your health that you won’t want to miss!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I feel humbled to have a book with information to share with others. Never in a million years did I think I’d be standing in front of people and have something of worth and value to share. In 7th grade I’d worry for weeks about standing up in front of my English class to give an oral book report. That was horrible! My English teacher would be flipped out if he saw me now. Live changes. God is so good! I am grateful to be on God’s team and have Him use me and my story to help others. If you are interested in learning more, see the Relationship with God tab.

This week I’ll share my story, my book “Fresh Hope … Cleveland”, and a new PowerPoint presentation to a breast cancer support group at Southwest General Health Center in Middleburg Hts., Ohio. The title of my talk is “Dealing with the Storms of Life.” Although storms can come in many shapes and sizes, there’s probably no one more aware of life’s storms than someone being treated for cancer.

This  past January I became a nine-year breast cancer survivor. I thank God for the gift of my life! But as I go to share my thoughts this week, I’m much in awe of other women. My cancer journey seems easy in comparison to the stories I hear and of the dear people I know that are now walking that road. It takes courage to deal with cancer. To me, women going through cancer are the strongest people I know!

As I reached out to someone for prayer last week, I was shocked when I heard a man tell me that every day he intensionally reaches out to his sister and tells her he loves her. He said he realized the importance of doing this even though it’s out of his comfort zone. His sister has been a cancer patient for quite a while. She’s  unbelieveable. She never complains and I know she’s been through it all. Today she’s in the hospital so my prayers and love go out to her as I write this. She’s an inspiration to all of us.

Hug your friends and love ones; Tell them you love them today. Because life can change in a blink of an eye. But don’t worry! God sees in the blinks and between the cracks. But best of all, He sees right into your heart and He knows right where you are!

God Bless You!
