Las Vegas, NV, March 21, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Writer, comedian and minister Brandon O. Severs, Sr., announced today the release of What If Mary Miscarried or Worse, Had an Abortion, The Promise Inside You Could Change the World, published by Outskirts Press. Severs uses his own experience of a devastating triple tragedy in his life to encourage his readers to carry on, no matter what, and to know that often the most trying circumstances are the ones that fully forge one’s character and values.
At the dawn of his budding comedy career and only four months into his new marriage, Brandon Severs was paralyzed after being shot during a home invasion. Due to complications which set in because of a fractured ankle not healing, he developed a near fatal infection and ended up having his leg amputated. Then, just when he thought things were starting to get better, he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.
Brandon does not believe in coincidences. Everything happens for a reason, he feels, and he set off to find the reason why this triple tragedy had befallen him.
He learned much about his family and his friends, but mostly he learned about God. He learned, also, that finding out the reason behind these events was only half the battle. Coming to know one’s life purpose and then carrying out that purpose are two entirely different undertakings.
Brandon was able to find out that these three events were each part of the plan for his life and, even more remarkably, he found out that his life had far less to do with him than he had ever thought.
What If Mary Miscarried or Worse, Had an Abortion is available on-line in paperback through Amazon and Barnes and Noble and at www.outskirtspress.com/bookstore for a maximum trade discount in quantities of ten or more.
