Carolyn “CJR” Hartley says if her book touches one life, she will consider it a success.
“You Have the Power of Prayer,” is a look through the hardships and celebrations of Hartley’s life accompanied by a Bible verse with the lesson she learned from her experiences.
“It is about the different things in life, and the simple things you pray about,” Hartley said. “After reading a couple of chapters, you get the feeling of what the whole book is about.”
For her first book, the Blount Memorial Museum is hosting a book signing for Hartley on Friday, June 14, 1 p.m. until 3 p.m. Refreshments will be served.
Hartley attends Palmerdale First Baptist and all revenue and proceeds from the book go to the church, however, for the book signing, Hartley says her church has decided to give the proceeds to the museum.
“You Have the Power of Prayer” is on sale at the museum – hard copy is $30 and paperback is $15.
