Mercedes Wilson Shares The Message Of Faith, Healing, & Forgiveness In Her New Book: HOPE: How Faith Carried Me Through My Darkest Hours
Learn how hope can transform your mind, change your life, and allow you to conquer any of life’s challenges.
Buffalo, NY — June 6, 2018 — Author Mercedes Wilson always knew that there was something pulling at her heart from childhood. This pulling was keeping her in her darkest times, when she felt like she was going to lose it all. In her new book, HOPE: How Faith Carried Me Through My Darkest Hours (published by Westbow Press), Mercedes, shares the most intimate experiences of her life.
Mercedes experienced things that a lot of young women face growing up, from abuse and divorce to bankruptcy and cancer. Everything she tried to escape stared her in the face at the most difficult time in her life, making it hard for her to continue running.
“I realized that hope is not birthed from perfection, that hope is started in the depths of your hurting soul with a simple word from God,” said Wilson.
Mercedes’ book is not just a memoir, but it is a testimony. Not only does she bare all, but she explains the details about how she was able to overcome all through faith and her belief in Christ.

Seattle’s East West Bookshop Opens Its Doors For The 365 Days Of Gratitude North American Book Tour: Meet Muskan Virk Saturday Night, April 15th For A FREE Book Talk/Signing/Q&A
Buffalo, NY – March 19, 2017 – Join one of the world’s youngest authors, 10-year-old Muskan Virk, at East West Bookshop in Seattle on Saturday evening, April 15th (from 7-8:30PM PT), as she shares the release of her new book, 365 Days of Gratitude, in a special free Book Talk. Muskan will discuss how practicing compassion and expressing unconditional love allow us to see the bigger picture of life, and how gratitude heals, for when we are grateful for what we have in our lives, we have more to be grateful for. Plus, Muskan will be answering your questions in a special interactive 365 Days of Gratitude Q&A and conclude the evening’s event with a book signing, where you will be able to have your very own copy of 365 Days of Gratitude signed by Muskan herself.
“I cannot wait to share my message of gratitude, love, and compassion with the customers of East West Bookshop,” said Muskan.
The Inspiring Journey To 365 Days Of Gratitude: Muskan came into this world as a miracle after her parents’ 16 years of marriage. At the young age of 6, Muskan learned about the injustice that Malala Yousafzai (the Pakistani activist for female education and the youngest-ever Nobel Prize laureate) had gone through, and was devastated. She was propelled to take action and wanted to make a difference. She started by raising funds to donate to the Malala Fund and other local charities. However, despite the difference she was already making, Muskan didn’t want to stop there. She asked her mother incessantly about why there was so much gender inequality in such modern times. In order to shift her thoughts on this subject to a more positive state, her mother gave her a journal and encouraged her to write one thing every day that she was grateful for.
She wanted Muskan to focus on all the positive things in her life. As time passed, her mother forgot about the journal, until Muskan came to her later with a journal filled with all of the things she was grateful for and how she had transformed her negative thoughts about gender inequality into positive thoughts on how she can use her influence to make an impact.
From those beautiful daily gratitudes, 365 Days of Gratitude was born. Along with the inspiring stories of gratitude from best-selling authors Serena Dyer (the daughter of beloved spiritual teacher and New York Times best-selling author & inspirational speaker Dr. Wayne Dyer) and Jason Garner, 365 Days of Gratitude is filled with simple gratitudes of everyday life, which inspire and uplift, and remind all of the beauty and pleasures that surrounds us and makes us feel good.
Pre-registration for this special event at the Main Hall of East West Bookshop is required. Reserve your free tickets by visiting EastWestBookshop.com. You are also welcome to reserve your space and spread the word on Muskan’s first-ever appearance at East West by RSVP’ing and sharing the official Facebook event on social media
