Endorsements for Just 18 Summers®
Michelle Cox is one of my favorite authors. Her books are in my office at the Fox News Corner of the World in New York City. This latest work, may be her best yet. “Just 18 Summers” is a must-read for moms and dads. She writes the kind of books that are best read with a glass of sweet tea and a box of Kleenex. Michelle can make you laugh, cry and shout in one sentence! Michelle’s book reminds us that our greatest legacy has ten fingers and ten toes. – Todd Starnes, Fox News Channel
A sweet, powerful novel about the brevity of the time we have with our children. Touching, laugh-out-loud funny at points, and a poignant reminder of how vital it is to make the most of every fleeting moment. ––Deborah Raney, author of The Face of the Earth and A January Bride
I love this book! Just 18 Summers will grab your heart, shake you up, and remind you of the brief, yet impacting, time we have in just 18 summers in our child’s life. You’ll laugh, cry, and cheer, just as I did. And your heart will soar with the reality that we can redeem and maximize every moment in our own family’s lives by sharing truths and values we hold dear, savoring time together, and making memories. Michelle Cox and Rene Gutteridge have written a book filled with characters you will fall in love with and a story we can all relate to. It will awaken and inspire you—and make you laugh!–Nancy Stafford, Actress (“Matlock”), Speaker, and Author of The Wonder of His Love: A Journey into the Heart of God and Beauty by the Book: Seeing Yourself as God Sees You
I had planned to read the book over a period of several days but found that I just could not put it down. As a father of three grown children, JUST 18 SUMMERS really made me think back to the first 18 years I had with my own children and realized I need to make sure and make the 18 years with my grandchildren even more special.–Isaac Hernandez, VP of Programming/Parables Television
Every word, every page … spell-binding. A must-read for every parent, grandparent, or anyone who has a place in their heart for a special child. Bravo to Michelle and Rene for reminding us of what we should instinctively know already–that there is a time to embrace and a time to let go, and precious little time in-between.—Eva Marie Everson, Waiting for Sunrise, Christy Award Finalist
In Just 18 Summers the compelling realization pierces the heart that we as parents only have 18 summers to raise our children. Every reader’s soul will be touched while living through the seasons that these parents journeyed allowing their children to become grown-ups. In Just 18 Summers, it reminds us that we have such a short time to impact the next generation, such a short time to demonstrate the love we have for our family, and that we must make the most out of every day raising our children.–Laine Lawson Craft, WHOAwomen Founder and Publisher and Television Host.
