LAKE FOREST, CA (ANS – July 11, 2017) – I know that many of you love to buy online, but did you know that can support ASSIST every time you shop on Amazon.
With every purchase you make, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to ASSIST. It’s very easy to make this happen.
All you need to do is shop via www.smile.amazon.com and select the charity of your choosing for your donation. I am asking that you make Aid to Special Saints in Strategic Times (our registered name) your designated charity for the site.
AmazonSmile is the same Amazon you know with the same products, same prices and same service. It’s that simple! If you want to know more about AmazonSmile, just go to http://smile.amazon.com/gp/chpf/pd/ref=smi_ge_uaas_lpd_upd and then click on Get Started.
One gift you could purchase through Amazon, is my latest novel, Mary: My Story from Bethlehem to Calvary, which is the story of Jesus, through the eyes of his beloved mother, Mary. It could be a special gift for yourself, or for a non-believing friend who maybe doesn’t read the Bible or go to church, but loves reading novels. (See: http://www.marythebook.com/ for details of the book and where you can buy it on Amazon.
Already, several well-known personalities have endorsed the book. They include:
* Veteran entertainer, singer and writer, Pat Boone, who said, “Jesus loves his Mom. Just imagine how He loves her. I’d have been afraid to do what Dan Wooding has done so marvelously, lest I offend in some way, not just Jesus, but His mother and Father. But it’s clear to any reader that God Himself has anointed Dan to help us know his beloved earth Mother so personally. This is a true revelation!”
* Jerry B. Jenkins, New York Times best-selling novelist (including the massive Left Behind series) and biographer, who said: “Dan Wooding has applied his considerable, lifetime writing skills to the greatest story ever told, and from the perspective of the most sympathetic character. Mary / My Story is an obvious don’t miss. So, don’t miss it.”
* Actress Roma Downey, star of “Touched by an Angel,” who played Mary in the movie, Son of God, wrote: “Dan Wooding has a new book, ‘Mary, My Story from Bethlehem to Calvary.’ It is the story of Jesus as seen through his Mothers’ eyes. This is the perfect book to share with others as a simple way to be remind them that Jesus is truly the ‘Son of God’ and why his extraordinary mother was described by God as being ‘highly favored’ among women.”
