On March 15, Sarah Brandt of Niverville will be launching her first book, Blossom like Eden. Brandt entered her non-fiction manuscript last year in a women’s publishing contest hosted on by Winnipeg-based Christian publisher Word Alive Press. Her title was short-listed and she started the publishing process shortly after.

“I wrote Blossom like Eden because I wanted the truth inside of it to be available to share with those I love, especially my daughters,” Brandt says.

The book’s theme is about finding the fullness of life, which follows the unveiling of eight gifts found in the book of Ephesians.

“The title for the book is found inside a passage from Isaiah 51:3, where God shares that he will redeem Israel again one day, so that it’s desert will blossom like Eden.”

When she’s not writing or volunteering at her church’s kids club on Wednesday evenings, she’s kept busy homeschooling her and her husband’s three daughters.

Brandt recalls the six months in which it took her to write the manuscript.

“I had experienced a life transformation and a passion erupted,” she explains. “As God led me into deeper vulnerability and freedom to share my story, the words became a travelling tool for the reader to journey alongside me in my transformation.”

As an accompaniment, Brandt has written a women’s book study. She will be hosting the first study right after the launch.

Writing a book, she is quick to acknowledge, is no small feat—and she has some advice for other people working on their own books.

“With writing comes self-doubt and a lot of detailed steps, much redoing and reworking,” Brandt says. “If you have a message or a passion to write, come to your computer every day and write. Don’t let fear keep you from expressing what is your unique message to tell.”

The official launch will take place at McNally Robinson Booksellers at the Grant Park mall on March 15 at 2:00 p.m.. Refreshments and music will be available, and the evening will include a short set of worship music from Joanna Froese, the co-founder of New City Church.

The book will be available for purchase wherever Christian books are sold.
