Local Author to Speak in Hecker
October 29, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Local author Sarah Hartrum-Decareaux will speak about her book “From Here to Heaven” at Friedens United Church of Christ in Hecker this Sunday, Oct. 29.
The event begins at 2 p.m.
On a cold January morning in 2013, Sarah’s husband, Dave, and two of their sons, Dominic, 10, and Grant, 8, went to Heaven in a hiking accident.
“From Here to Heaven” is the story of the Decareaux family, from their golden days as a home-schooling military family traveling across Europe, to tragedy, to crawling, walking, and being carried back to life toward triumph. This is a story of unspeakable loss and of hope, of pain and of healing, of godly defiance, and of daring to learn to live again in the face of seemingly unbearable grief.
The public is invited to attend.
Friedens UCC is located in Hecker, two blocks east of Route 159 at 240 E. Monroe Street.
Refreshments will be served.
