Dallas, TX, August 28, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- David R. Hardiman, author of “Bailey’s Remarkable Plan,” shared his message of trust, faith and perseverance Aug. 21 at Spring Valley United Methodist Church in Dallas. Hardiman shared with the Sunday school audience how God performs miracles to transform or protect people.
Hardiman also signed several copies of his Christian nonfiction and inspirational book. His autobiography shares how he endured a lifetime of illness and other challenges alone before Bailey – a shih tzu – became his best friend, service dog and hero.
“The book includes wonderful examples of perseverance, love and triumph,” he said.
Hardiman of Arlington, Texas, and formerly of Plano, Texas, was born with a rare medical condition that eluded diagnosis for decades, and he developed post-traumatic stress disorder late in life. Bailey senses when Hardiman is about to have an attack, and she alerts him and helps him deal with the horror.
“Bailey is a gift from God to me,” Hardiman said. “I face challenges each day, but she helps me cope. She and I have a special bond, and we are uniquely suited for each other.”
“Bailey’s Remarkable Plan” (Brown Books Publishing Group) cautions against judging people whose disabilities aren’t obvious. First-time author Hardiman doesn’t look like he has disabilities, but his problems are real.
The book also provides some information about laws that protect people who rely on service dogs. Hardiman’s goal is to provide the information in an entertaining way.
“Bailey and I have been told to leave malls and other public places because people mistake her for a pet,” Hardiman said. “They aren’t familiar with the laws that protect the use of service dogs.”
