God directs our steps and helps to guide us through our lives. I sought out to paint a warm, welcoming picture of the Shiner, Texas, community and to honor the beauty of the church.
RICHMOND, Texas (PRWEB) February 28, 2015
Author Carol Voelkel believes God has a plan for everyone, whether or not people decide to follow it. This belief provides the backbone for her new book, “Random Act of Love: A Painted Church of Texas Novel” (published by iUniverse).
Voelkel’s book is a Christian romance about childhood friends who rediscover each other while growing stronger in their faith. The novel highlights Saints Cyril and Methodius Church, one of the Painted Churches of Texas, located in Shiner. Voelkel weaves scenes of the church into the novel in such a way as to make readers feel they are sitting in the pew alongside the characters.
“I truly believe that nothing that happens to any of us is random,” Voelkel says. “God directs our steps and helps to guide us through our lives. I sought out to paint a warm, welcoming picture of the Shiner, Texas, community and to honor the beauty of the church.”
Voelkel wrote and published this novel with one specific goal in mind: to raise money for the church. Father Kirby Hlavaty, pastor at Saints Cyril and Methodius, has read and blessed the novel and has participated in several fundraising events with Voelkel.
