In The Right Place, a Gallery of Treasured Moments, is an art gallery of word paintings. Each short story, a canvas, tells of a memorable life event etched into time. Walk through the gallery rooms of Desert Drawings, Indelible Inkspots, and Watercolor Wisps. Rest in the Chapel with sixty one-minute devotionals.



Moments of Meditation is a devotional collection that “creates a mental picture of spiritual precepts with just a few words of inspiration.” These reflections will energize your mornings and provide quiet reflections for peaceful evenings. 




Double Take is a memoir by Vi Parsons and Violet Moore, the Carr Twins, recounting memories of growing up in the agricultural San Joaquin Valley. From a shared birth in an Arizona tent camp to a shared wedding gown in Chowchilla, California, these stories are told in the simplicity that surrounded them for two decades.
