Local author, nurse, midwife and ordained minister, Hyacinth Grace Rose, has published her first book, “7 Keys to Successful Family Living.”
The book explores her belief that the keys to a successful family life are: putting God first; guiding the family with love; controlling the learning environment; investing in eternal values; maintaining the critical balance; managing money matters and time to let go.
“We have become so accustomed to the idea that success in family life is reserved for the chosen handful of blessed and highly favored families, or to those special few families who are fortunate enough never to have any real difficulties in life,” Rose said. “We fail to see the simple truth that we are all meant to be successful in the area of family life.”
A seasoned writer, Rose’s “Family Life” columns have been published in local newspapers and magazines.
As well as dedicating her time to writing, Rose also teaches and counsels on family life issues at church, schools and community groups.
An official book launch is in the planning stages.
“7 Keys to Successful Family Living” is $14.99 and is available from Books & Books, Christian Enlightenment and supermarkets island-wide.
