The beauty of a talent is the ability to use that talent to impact the lives of others for the glory of God. Victoria Duerstock is one who seeks to impact lives through the release of her book, Heart and Home. Victoria will be launching her book at Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Liberty, NC, on April 6th, 2019, from 1-3pm. I caught up with Victoria ahead of the event to get some insights from her on the book, as well as other dates that she would be appearing after the launch.
About Heart and Home:
“Heart and Home is ninety short devotionals that combine the basic principles of design with our Christian life,” Victoria explained. “So, the basic principles, like unity and harmony, balance and focal point, are good examples of what I try to combine with verses of Scripture, an application, and a design tip is included as well.”
The book is being published by Abingdon Press and is set to release on April 16th, 2019.
The launch is an opportunity for readers to come and meet with her and get to know the author. The design of the book is elegant and is the perfect size for carrying around, keeping it on hand for the pick-me-up we need during the day. Victoria added, “It is a full color, hardcover book, that is gift sized, which is the perfect size to keep in a lady’s purse.”
In speaking of the book, she made note, “how we are as Christians, we need our focal point to be on Christ. In a room, you have to have a focal point as well.” These concepts came together to form this book that will help the reader to grow in their faith through the Scripture, the application, and will bless the reader with the design tip that will be helpful for their home.
Victoria added that, in the process of the journey to the release of this book, the Lord had been with her in every step. She noted about the hand of the Lord moving in the process, “A new author doesn’t get a hardcover book. Many times, a new author doesn’t have full-color in a book. These things that just don’t happen were happening, so it was definitely God.”
