Perhaps my experiences and words will bring a special joy to others, especially during this holiday season.

“The more years we have to experience life, to discover new places, to explore new ideas, the more we realize how much there is to learn,” author Colleen Hosford said.

From her 75 years of life, Hosford draws upon a 56-year marriage, a five generational living family and a lifelong passionate involvement with her church and community. Her new book, “Shared Messages,” reflects many of the changing seasons of her life.

Hosford compiles a collection of personal letters and poems filled with anecdotes, inspirational messages and sterling examples of keeping faith in the holidays. Whether discussing wartimes, self-doubt, the importance of Christmas traditions or even football, a sense of warmth and wisdom is ever present.

“I’m aware that I’ve been blessed in so many ways over the years,” Hosford said, “Perhaps my experiences and words will bring a special joy to others, especially during this holiday season.”

“Shared Messages” offers readers a fresh look and a deeper understanding of the Christian faith.
