We all have a story—many actually—which define and influence, sometimes greatly, how we perceive things and choose to live our lives. Learning about other people’s journeys lets us know that we’re not alone, whether it’s a blog, book, or biography we’re reading and/or engaging in a great conversation. In some ways, it even helps us to heal when healing is needed. It teaches us more compassion, and help us to grow.
Is it time for you to write a new story for yourself this season and coming year? Are there some decisions you need to make, or healthy changes you want to initiate? What about volunteer work? And/or perhaps putting pen to paper or fingers to keyboard to write your first or next book?
I C Publishing Introduces William D. Finlayson, Ph.D., Author of The Archaeology of Patterson Village
Author William (Bill) Finlayson takes on an extraordinarily complicated field of study, and gives us a fascinating look into the Archaeological Excavations of Patterson Village in Vaughan, Ontario. Through the meticulously documented and analyzed “objects dug up from the ground,” we learn how the people of Patterson Village worked and socialized. Dr. Finlayson’s wonderfully descriptive prose, illustrations, and pictures transport us back in time to the mid-1800s where we have a front-row seat to the lives of the people of Patterson Village.
After our busiest year yet, we’re expanding our team again and catching up on sharing all the good news . . . beginning with six fascinating new author interviews where you’ll not only hear about their awesome new publications you’ll also be inspired to step into your own power and build, create, or write—whatever your calling—and use your voice and your gifts for good. Check it out, and watch for more to follow soon!
Rod’s writing explores the edges of life. He talks about suffering in silence, and brings to light that many still do. Although there is much more dialogue around mental health, we still have a way to go. Kudos to Rod for unveiling these thought-filled and provocative words; and perhaps encouraging us as well to put pen to paper to explore our innermost thoughts, and heal.
Family memoirs make a meaningful and lasting gift to our loved ones. They give us roots, and a glimpse into ourselves . . . Just think of the stories your parents and grandparents have shared with you. Imagine what they experienced in their lifetime; and what you have in yours. Stories impact us in countless ways; they entertain, intrigue, inspire, and even help us heal in our times of difficulty or grief.
