The Coach Training Academy announces a special book signing event on Saturday March 18, 2017 at 11am at Arrowhead Parable Christian Store, 1 Harry L Drive, Johnson City, NY USA. This book signing features one of their talented life coach graduates, Lori D. Carlsen author of “My Father’s Greatest Gift: Life Lessons from a Black English Labrador Retriever”. This is an opportunity to meet with the author, discuss the books purpose, message and motivation for being written. Copies will be available for purchased and can be signed by the author.

“My Father’s Greatest Gift,” is a true story, as narrated through the eyes of a Black English Labrador Retriever named Chert, whose purpose is revealed in this story. In his own words, throughout his fourteen years of life, Chert Dog comments that “…doghead is pretty easy to learn, you just have to speak from your heart.” This velvety black, with chocolate accents English Labrador Retriever came into her father’s life a few months after the unexpected death of their mother. It touches on the Slovak ethnic background of the family, hence his name Chert, which means devil! He shares his triumphs and escapades as well as his life’s mission. With a “doghead” slant on wisdom and his purpose, the story’s main theme is about the power of unconditional love and forgiveness. Each chapter begins with noted scripture verses to read from the Bible in relation to the context of each chapter.
