“Sunshine and Shadow”: a momentous narrative that shares the author’s moments of hardship that pushed him to strive to find meaning in his life and achieve it through determination and will. “Sunshine and Shadow” is the creation of published author Kermit Olson, an impassioned writer of Scandinavian descent.

Olson shares, “The story of a family and their struggle to lead a safe and comfortable life in the mid-twentieth century in America.

“The story begins in Montana but leads to Washington in the search for opportunity for Vic and Gina and their six children. Kermit was their fourth baby, and this book portrays his struggles to find peace and meaning in a tumultuous, sometimes terrifying, home. He finds peace and self-identity in travel as well as fulfillment in serving others. His quest leads him to two years of service in West Pakistan in the Peace Corps, several trips to South America with World Gospel Mission, several work trips to Central America with Habitat for Humanity, and three trips to Kenya, volunteering for Kaimosi Friends University. He understands God has a special love for poor people, that’s why he made so many of them.

“Though he studied agriculture at university, his major life’s work was as a buyer in a business environment. He has purchasing experience in airplane manufacture, steel fabrication, and hospital supply.

“His story shares his desire to find satisfaction and fulfillment in hobbies, recreation, travel, and family life. He shares with the Psalmist, ‘God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear’ (Ps. 46:1).”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Kermit Olson’s new book is a noteworthy example of mankind’s unyielding hope to thrive in a world fraught with odds.

This book ultimately imparts the wisdom of faith in anticipating and appreciating every challenge as an opportunity to be better individuals of tomorrow.
