What would you do if you knew your time was short?
"Pink Lips and Fingertips" answers this question through the life of Jeri Ivison Paholek, who was born with a rare heart defect called common ventricle and given a death sentence by the medical community. Instead of retreating inward and playing it safe to extend her years or embarking on an extravagant global adventure, Jeri chose to impact the world for Jesus Christ—whether it was by corresponding with convicted bomber Timothy McVeigh on death row, setting up a prayer stand immediately after the terrorist attacks of 9/11 or rushing to the courthouse to befriend a teenage inmate intending to have an abortion. Her indomitable spirit in the face of death will inspire and captivate. You will not approach life the same way after reading this book.
The book, published by Xulon Press, will be available at amazon.com, barnesandnoble.com and other outlets this summer. For more information, go to pinklipsandfingertips.org
(By the way, here's the story behind the title: Because Jeri's blood was not circulating properly and oxygenating properly, her extremities were blue. Her dream was to have "pink lips and fingertips.")
