Because of a Promise – A Mother’s Inspirational Journey from Whispers to Ripples by Sandy Cappelli is officially being launched on Thursday morning April 18, 2013 at 8AM PDT.
When asked why it took so long to get the story out, Sandy responded, “It wasn’t the story I wanted to write. The pregnancy was so hopeful that I believed I was writing about a miraculous healing of my son’s heart. When that didn’t happen, I thought of the story as a “failed” whisper and could not see purpose in publishing.”
Periodically, Sandy would pull out the book and do some light editing, but it would always end up back on the shelf. Then, eighteen months ago, friends started working on Sandy to get the book published. On Thursday, April 18, the launch of the book becomes official.
“After providing hope and healing to thousands of families through Steven’s Hope for Children, I no longer think of it as a failed whisper, but I am still humbled by the response of those who have read an advance copy of the book. Everyone seems to be taking away something different. For some it is about love and loss, for others it is about the faith and prophecy that guided us, while others seem to resonate with the concept of making ripples of impact in the world around us. I am just happy that my story is impacting lives.”
A new website has been created to help promote “Because of a Promise” and to offer groups the opportunity to have Sandy speak and share the message of moving from “Whispers to Ripples.” You can also sign up for her blog, social media or read and view testimonials on the book. The website address is www.sandycappelli.com.
“The official book launch will be between 8 AM and noon this Thursday,” said Tony Cappelli. “We are hoping to make it an Amazon Best Seller to open more doors to get the message out and to bring greater awareness to Steven’s Hope for Children to help further its mission. We would appreciate all the help we can get.”
