Rebecca Moore's 'First to Forty' presents a random collection of forty short articles and poems that inspire and connect us to the beauty of the everyday—drawing us each into a more passionate love and engagement with our family, home and life.
First to Forty is a discovery of a life, love, hope and happiness that leads you home.
The perfect companion to the busy day or those needing a quick break from the mundane, serious or difficult. First to Forty will whisk you away to a place of fresh perspective in a gentle, humorous and thought provoking way. Highly recommended for those who want more out of life but don't have the time to commit hours to reading just one story.
Rebecca Moore's writing pedigree is as a senior writer with Christian Today, a Week Editor with Press Service International and an editorial writer and a 'local newspaper' columnist to list only a few.
Therefore the articles featured in First to Forty have been read by tens of thousands of men and women world wide. Loved because of the gentle and natural way that Rebecca Moore - a wife and mother of four — sees beauty in the everyday; laughter, joy and hope in the trials, successes and failures of life; and triumph in facing things with a hope and a shared sense of gravity.
“This book is a feast of real life stories, bringing joy to the heart, tears to the eyes and the hope that no matter what situation you are faced with in life, God is there. Each inspirational chapter gives a richer meaning and purpose to life's journey.”
“I have just finished reading your book! Thanks for sharing your stories full of pearls of wisdom and timely reminders. I have felt blessed and feel a real sense of peace and encouragement about the promises of God. Time to be ‘anxious for nothing’ and be present in the moment with my loved ones! Will there be a ‘First to Eighty’?”
“Really lovely stories from a very special lady. Look forward to reading your next one!” —Sue
