Book launch in Wetaskiwin Sept. 7

“Treasure Kingdom” is about rising to your full potential

Wetaskiwin readers will have a chance to meet an Alberta author who writes about her Christian discoveries as part of an awesome adventure.

Lori Gurnett will be in Wetaskiwin for a book launch and signing Saturday, Sept. 7 for her latest effort, “Treasure Kingdom.”

According to Gurnett’s media release, “Millions of people struggle with who they are. What defines their life? There are many fears in life that we allow to control us, but there is another solution. Now is the time to take back that control. When to choose to push through life’s storms in your life, you have the freedom to stand firm and fight for what you believe in. What are you most passionate about? That will move to forward, when you find the one thing that excites you and challenges you.”

“Treasure Kingdom” is a story that shows everyone is important and deserving of love and forgiveness.

“Author, encourager, and speaker Lorie Gurnett shows readers how to push through the darkness, find hope again, and understand their true value.Through sharing her own story and her character in Treasure Kingdom, Josiah and Senora go on a journey of self discovery and find they are loved, they have value, and they are never alone. Lorie shows readers that anyone can overcome the lies we tell

ourselves and rise to their full potential.”

Tina Morlock, editor and published author, stated,“From the opening words of her novel, Lorie Gurnett speaks directly to her readers on issues they face daily. Her book is not only a positive and uplifting story for young adults, but it also invites them into a magical world full of color, light, and empowerment. Her narrative is especially empowering for young girls who have been bullied, who suffer from depression, and who experience more grief than some adults. She writes about the hard topics pre-teens and teenagers face without glorifying it. Instead, she gives young readers powerful tools to help them fight through their adolescence with confidence and faith.”

The book launch will be held at West Hall 5940 40th Ave. #1 Wetaskiwin. Gurnett said there will be fellowship, door prizes and autographed copies of “Treasure Kingdom” for sale. The event runs from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
