Bestselling Author Sheila Walsh to Host Webcast

Written by SGN Scoops on February 13, 2013 – 7:45 pm -

Seattle: It’s never too early to introduce your kids to a regular devotional routine or ways in which they can let their light shine in sheilatheir daily lives. The Shine Your Light Devotional (Tommy Nelson/February 19, 2013/ISBN 978-1-4003-2069-1/$16.99) by renowned Bible teacher  Sheila Walsh allows parents to do just that. On February 26 at 8 PM EST/5 PM, Walsh will be hosting a webcast to connect with moms and highlight this new release.

 Young girls need to know that they can be bright, shining lights for God—and this new devotional will teach them to do so by thanking God, learning His Word, telling others about Him, and showing His love to everyone they meet.

More than 50 devotions help girls see that God wants us to learn about Him and to put His Word in action. Memory verses, prayers, “Shine Your Light” activities that focus on serving God each day, and devotional thoughts explore how little girls can be more like Jesus. With lots of sparkles and even more great biblical applications and encouragement, the Shine Your Light Devotional is sure to be a favorite part of a little girl’s day.

“I wish I had understood when I was a young girl struggling with shame and self-doubt that God loved me just the way I was – that’s what I want for the girls in our life,” explains Walsh. “Let them grow up strong in the knowledge that they are Daughters of the King.”

The Shine Your Light Devotional incorporates artwork from Walsh’s latest series of God’s Little Angel™ storybooks. These stories follow on the heels of Walsh’s wildly successful God’s Little Princess series, which has won the National Retailer’s Choice Award twice and is the most popular Christian brand for young girls in the US.

During the February 26 interactive webcast, the audience can submit questions for Walsh to answer, join a live chat with other parents, and be eligible to win a variety of prizes, including copies of Shine Your Light.  Participants can join the webcast via the author’s Facebook page or for those who do not have a Facebook account, the Litfuse Publicity Group website.

Dan Posthuma, who along with longtime Gaither associate Ronn Huff is producing the concert, adds: “The impact that Bill & Gloria’s music has had on the church in our generation is astounding. We all look forward to an inspiring and emotional evening that pays tribute to these powerful songs!”

ABOUT BILL & GLORIA GAITHER
“The Gaithers are to Christian music what The Beatles are to pop music,” said Donna Hilley, when the American Society of Composers, Artists and Publishers (ASCAP) named them “Gospel Songwriters of the Century.”

The Gaither’s real-life lyrics were born out of their everyday lives as full-time schoolteachers. Bill and Gloria have partnered to write more than 700 songs, including “Because He Lives,” “He Touched Me,” “Let’s Just Praise the Lord,” “Something Beautiful” and “The King is Coming,” to name just a few of the favorites. Bill and Gloria have performed in concert and shot videos around the world. Sharing their stage with countless up-and-coming artists, Bill and Gloria mentored performers such as Amy Grant, Michael W. Smith, Sandi Patty, and Stephen Curtis Chapman, influencing entire generations of artists.

ABOUT THE NASHVILLE CHOIR
The Nashville Choir was formed in 2005 out of a desire to bring Nashville’s Christian community together through music. Under the direction of John E. Coates, The Nashville Choir is an organization of professional-level Christian singers united to show God’s glory in the marketplace bringing all denominations and all peoples together to worship with one voice.

In its short history, The Nashville Choir has appeared at prestigious events in the city including: 3 Community Hymn Sings with the Nashville Symphony, the annual Tennessee Prayer Breakfast since 2007, and at the Inauguration of Governor Bill Haslam. The Nashville Choir recorded “Just As I Am” for the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte, NC, and most recently recorded the choral parts for Walt Disney’s “World Of Color” in California. The Nashville Choir’s heart is firmly planted in Nashville with benefits performed for the Salvation Army, the Rescue Mission, and Room In The Inn.
