I recently came across this beautiful crowdfunding campaign and wanted to share this very beautiful and meaningful project, dedicated to the author's father! It touched my heart and I wanted to help and share this with others! It's a surprise for her father so she is relying on word of mouth and help from complete strangers so she can keep this a secret! Scroll down to learn more about this amazing story!
Shhh! This is the Big Secret from Author Lynnette Bonner
Before I tell you all about the secret, let me give you a little backstory.
My parents were missionaries, and I grew up in Africa. My Daddy was a busy man who was president and teacher at a national Bible School, training pastors to reach their country for Jesus. He also did much of the bookkeeping for the mission and training of new missionaries. Mom kept busy teaching English classes as well as Bible classes and acted as a nurse to many patients who showed up at our back door when they couldn't afford to go to the hospital.
Despite their busyness, my parents were great at making time for us kids.
This is our family, below, in all of our 70's glory. That's me in my daddy's arms.
Let Me Tell You About the Secret…
One treasured memory I have is that my daddy told me countless stories about a bunny named SilverEars. :) It has long been on my heart to create a SilverEars picture book, and I'm so excited that dream has finally come to life!
The reason it's a secret? My daddy turns 83 this year, and I plan to present him with the book as his gift.
So PLEASE, when you go to my website, if you decide to share with someone you feel might be interested, do NOT tag me on social media. Daddy follows me on all my social sites and I'm really doing my best to keep this a surprise.
Here's the exciting news for you! If you have little people in your life, this is your chance to save big on the paperback versions of this book! These will make wonderful gifts for any occasion.
I'm so pleased that the Lord helped me connect with the perfect illustrator for this series. But, as I'm sure you can imagine, the custom artwork for this is expensive. To raise the funds for the art, I'm doing a pre-sale of the book at a big savings. These will come to you signed.
Please click through to my website to learn more. There are three main packages - all very affordable! (Although the shipping is to US locations only, you can contact directly for a quote for international shipping.) All the details are here: https://www.lynnettebonner.com/posts/silverears/
You can also watch a video of the artist painting the cover combined with a sneaky interview with my daddy that my daughter helped me pull off.
Help make her dream come true and be a part of the best birthday present ever for an amazing father!
