Chords of Strength

Wow! Just finished reading my copy of David Archuleta's first book and all I can say right now is AMAZING. I can't believe that these are the thoughts of a 19 year old. Of course he is not an ordinary teen, and I already knew this, so it should not have surprised me.

Since the actual release date is not until June 1, I won't post any details about the book until then. I don't want to spoil anything, just in case. I will brag though that the one picture that I submitted for possible inclusion in the book made it to the awesome full-color pages. I couldn't believe it when I opened the book and found it included. I immediately called my husband, who was the actual photographer on that day, to let him know and he was so happy for me.

I look forward to writing a review of this book on Tuesday but for now I will say that I have learned a few new personal things about David but overall I have developed an even greater "love" and respect for him as an artist and as a person. I think that this book should be required reading for every teen, really everyone, so that they can see the "better way" to grow and prosper in this crazy world. I love David's positive outlook on the world that he knows is not always positive. He doesn't "stick his head in the sand" he just doesn't choose to be a part of the problem.

Well more to come on this book and review on Tuesday. Now it's off for a family time on a three day weekend. This is the last weekend before my daughter graduates from high school. Time has really moved along quickly this past year.
