OKC author accepts God’s calling, embarks on amazing spiritual journey in new book
OKLAHOMA CITY — Author Sue Meek Prentice shares inspirational journey as a pastor’s wife in the nationwide release of her new book, “Through Laughter and Tears: God’s Faithfulness in Ministry.”
When Sue Meek Prentice met Buddy Prentice, an outgoing religion major at Bethany Nazarene College, and felt God calling her to be a pastor’s wife, she wasn’t sure what her future would hold. But with a trusting spirit, she accepted God’s call and Buddy Prentice’s hand, and together, they embarked on a transformational journey with an ever-present Savior who has never let them down.
In “Through Laughter and Tears,” Sue Meek Prentice shares some of the memories and adventures she and her husband have experienced during their more than 50 years in ministry. Using relevant scripture, thoughtful insights and laugh-out-loud examples, the author shares how God continually demonstrates his overwhelming faithfulness and love to those who serve him — no matter the circumstance or obstacle in the way. Whether you’re serving in ministry or new to the Christian faith, this book will inspire you to dwell in the steadfast love and goodness of God, who, through laughter and tears, remains forever faithful.
Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or by visiting barnesandnoble.com or amazon.com.
