Mr. Happy Living here…
And I’m happy to be broadcasting from WYTV7 in the beautiful Queen City… Charlotte, North Carolina!

Show Notes:

:55 – Please take a minute and tell us what you’re doing these days to make your Mark of Significance on the World.

1:40 – Thank you, Trace. Now, let’s switch things up a bit… You gave us an inspiring interview in Episode #43 in November of 2020 and now your back for Episode #96… This is our very first Alumni Update for the Something Significant Show… And today, we’re gonna talk about a significant accomplishment you’ve made since our last interview… you’ve written and got published a book called The Miracles of Shepherd’s Hill: An Extraordinary Odyssey of Divine Interventions… Please give us an overview of your book!   

2:10 – How long ago did you think about writing it? 

3:25 – What was the biggest personal challenge you had to overcome while writing it? 

4:45 – What was the biggest business challenge you had to overcome while writing it? 

6:00 – Tell us a few of the biggest miracles that you describe in the book.

22:15 – What has Shepherd’s Hill taught you about Gratitude (which you call a virtue) and Struggle (that you call a growth agent)?

23:15 – What are the top two or three things you want your readers to learn from reading the book? 

25:20 – How do you want your book to change peoples’ lives?

30:20 – How does it feel now that you’ve encapsulated the miracles of Shepherd’s Hill into a book that’ll still be giving to the world after you and I are long gone…  

And then a reader says… 

“This book is a tangible reminder that all things are possible through God”… and continued by saying, “It’s refreshing to read a book that brings you joy and hope, and there’s no way you can read this book and not have joy and hope!” 

And another says, “Trace Embry shows us how stepping out on faith is not only “obedient”, but it’s also exciting!” 

And another… “If you are looking for a modern story that is written to the caliber of the Gospel of Mark, then this is a must read! 

And Film Maker, Author, and Self Teaching Activist, Sam Sorbo writes… “Sometimes a true story is too much, even for Hollywood. Whatever you believe about God, miracles, and parenting… this book is a must read.”  

And finally, one reader exclaims very simply, “Inspirational!” 

So, Trace, tell us, how does all that make you feel?
