Underdogs: Canines, Convicts, Courage, and Christmas – all wrapped up in one!


Deb’s Dozen: 12-Word Summaries – Sad journey with losses, but a joyous Christmas of helping and hope.

I loved the book. I laughed and cried and laughed again. What a wonderful Christmas book this is! Although the author has been through pain and losses – both of a step-son and multiple dogs, she still finds hope, love, and cheer to ease her way through the journey of life. I was with her every step – many of us have endured similar hardships. I admire her stick-to-it-iveness and her willingness to try new things and to look for joy in her surroundings. Underpinning her whole story is her firm conviction that God is good – all the time. You’ll want to get several copies of this book to give as gifts as well as keeping one for yourself!

Her biography tells us that Connie (Sturm) Cameron has a gift for inspirational writing, touching the heart in a way that truly blesses the reader. Her Leaps of Faith weekly newspaper column is a feature in five newspapers, where she shares her thoughts about life and her faith. Connie’s latest book, a 365 daily devotional, Stories of Faith and Courage from Prison (AMG Publishers), is packed with moving testimonies of hope behind bars. Co-authored with Jeff Peck (formerly of Prison Fellowship International), their book has endorsements by Chad Hovind, author of Godonomics, and Carol Kent, author of When I Lay My Isaac Down.

I know Connie to be a warm and loving person – her character comes through in her writing – you’ll want to get to know her, too!
