World Footprints Book Club kicks off with actress Gloria Loring
You may know actress/singer Gloria Loring from her character Liz Chandler on the soap opera Days of Our Lives, or as the singer in the number-one hit song “Friends and Lovers” or as the mother of singer Robin Thicke. But what you may not know is that Gloria has wrestled with real-life dramas throughout her life. Her oldest child was diagnosed with a chronic illness, she struggled through an unraveling marriage and faced countless professional challenges. But Gloria also experienced the saving grace of timely coincidences.
This months World Footprints Book Club selection “Coincidence is God’s Way of Remaining Anonymous” is a detailed account of Gloria’s compelling life’s journing and her exploration of the mystery of divine intervention. Gloria experienced many ‘accidental miracles’ that occurred at just the right time. One example was her discovery of a business card with the words “expect a miracle” that someone or something placed on her makeup table. That event and those simple words have since become her mantra.
This show will also be available on the World Footprints website.
