Pat and I met through a mutual acquaintance. I recall meeting her at Einstein Bagels close to home, and I was told that she had some real talent.

We talked over coffee and I agreed to look over her poetry in exchange for dinner. Well, I had company for a couple of days, but managed to read her work in its entirety within a couple of days! It was so wonderful! If she had not written her poetry, I would have claimed it as my own!

Pat Elston had some real talent. My job was challenging; I had to convince her that it was worth publishing, and then creating a masterpiece with what the Lord had given her through the years.

What an honor it was to serve her! I don't think she was ever able to truly imagine what the finished product would be and the excitement grew as we worked diligently together to create a lasting legacy.

She now has a beautifully designed book, for her family and friends. I'm so happy and blessed to call her my friend!

  1. You Are Loved is a visual delight from cover to cover. Each section is illustrated with full color photos and heartfelt experiences, bringing the author’s poetic messages to life. The book truly expresses the over-arching theme of God’s unfailing love. Thank you for such a beautiful book!
