CHICAGO - August 12, 2022 - (Newswire.com)
W. Carol Johnson, a former counselor and teacher who has served as a Lutheran pastor for over two decades, has completed her new audiobook "A Baking Powder Pause: An Appalachian Perspective on Stories of Hope: Choosing to Rise Above Hardship and Challenge": an impactful and encouraging compilation of short stories of individuals who have risen above difficult times to take control of their lives.
"It may seem strange to refer to baking powder when looking at life's struggles," shares Johnson. "But for me, growing up in the hills of Kentucky years ago, baking powder became symbolic of what is needed to make a 'rising up' occur when I would find myself stagnant or stuck. As a catalyst, an action-agent, baking powder becomes the 'Spirit' that moves otherwise dormant ingredients into a new shaping, a conforming...a transformation process...with delightful results!
"… These are stories of 'rising above times'—times of great suffering, testing, or trial—times that could have consumed one's very soul. A rising not of one's own volition, but specifically because an ingredient was added to the waiting, receptive soul...an 'agent' that urges action and brings hope. We will pause here to honor diverse stories of some 'rising above times,' in 'A Baking Powder Pause'. Thank you for sharing this journey with me! May these words lift you to heights of hope and kindness, reminding you to have a 'biscuit in your pocket,' to give comfort, support, and hope to anyone who suffers—including yourself!"
