Chandler author relives memories with father, strengthens relationship with Christ in new book

CHANDLER, Texas — Author Nancy Avedikian announces the nationwide release of her heartwarming new Spanish storybook, “Sabados con Papa.” Hardback copies of the book will be available early next month.

The stories in “Sabados con Papa” are easy for young readers and will be enjoyed by girls and their mothers alike. Each story concludes with a Bible verse to encourage the reader to put her faith in the Lord.
