Book discusses salvation
EdDee Foy has published a new book, ěThings That Accompany Salvation,î through Derek Press in Cleveland, Tenn.
In a press release, she asks, ěHave you ever wondered how a few Christians have genuine joy all the time while other are continuously stressed and seldom smile? According to the Book of Hebrews, the difference is in the ëThings that Accompany Salvation.í The Lord does not call us to be ëaverage.í He calls us to spiritual maturity, overflowing fullness, and abounding in good works. Godís children are blessed in harmony of body, soul, and spirit.î
EdDee and her husband, Charley, a retired pastor, live in Salisbury. She was a Bible teacher for more than 35 years. She is an associate instructor at Piedmont Bible School. She twice won the Virginia State Family Training Hour Director of the Year award. She has published songs with Tennessee Music and Printing Co. and is Christian education director at Sloan Lake in China Grove.
She will sign books Saturday, June 4, at Country Christian Books and Gifts, 409 S. Salisbury Ave., Granite Quarry, 11 a.m.-2 p.m.
She will also sign at Christian Supply Shoppe at 2009 S. Cannon Blvd., Kannapolis, on June 11, from 11 a.m.-2 p.m.; and on July 15, at the Bible Bookstore in Salisbury, 314 S. Main St., from 6-9 p.m.
