Winifred Smith Eure has published three books prior to Altogether Now. The first book was entitled Expressions of a Newark Teacher. The second title was Poems from the Heart. The third title was Thread of Faith. All three books, including this one, have been inspired by her faith in God, her teaching experience, and her relationships with family and friends. The author concedes that if she can encourage others to have hope and faith while they experience the joys and sorrows of living, then her living will not be in vain. She writes in chapter 1: “Look at God’s powerful plan to make his will our own, to worship, praise, pray, and walk the walk, we never are alone.” As the author closes her book in chapter 9, she encourages all readers to share! Someone else needs you. Share! Someone else believes in you. Share! Someone else cares.
