“I am always so inspired by Cindy Palin’s vision and imagination! Her gift of words in ‘To Willow’s House for Tea’, beautifully engages the reader both young and old! Paired with such wonderfully whimsical imagery, by artist Desiree Abt-Tomkow, simply completes this delightful children’s story of how a grandma connects with her granddaughter when many miles separate them. I especially enjoyed how Grammy and Willow were finally able to have tea!”

A wonderful testimony of God’s love, compassion and faithfulness to us. Your writing skills are excellent and I truly enjoyed your poetry.

To Willow’s House for Tea is a whimsical delight. It embraces the imagination of a child and the love of a grandparent, with a gentle reminder that in our digital world there is still nothing better than to share physical space and time with those we love.
Very beautiful, honest & inspirational book!
I found I did not want to put this book down! Cindy’s heart is poured out on the pages in a very down to earth, sometimes humorous, and vulnerable way. I was captivated by her ‘heart’s song’ as she wrote of her soul’s search for truth. Yes, author Cindy Palin lives God’s love out-loud. Her translation of His messages of love is written into song at the start of each chapter. Then the final page Cindy writes: “Still your weary soul long enough to hear Him whisper.” I encourage everyone to highlight the last paragraph on page 14 and make it personal! At times, through tears, you will recognize that she is telling your story! Good job Cindy. Can’t wait to read the next one!
Awesome! You show people our Faith Keeper is faithful and is actively working for our good. Thank you for making yourself vulnerable to reach others and testify Christ as our Saviour.

A Faith Inspired Narrative!
“Sometimes love just can’t be shown without an arm around a shoulder, without a journey across a border. Love could be enough–when you go the extra mile.” (The Extra Mile by Cindy Palin)
These are some of the impactful and poignant lyrics that singer/songwriter Cindy Palin and now published author shares throughout the inspired telling of The Faith Keeper. Cindy is a wordsmith and can articulate in a few lines what would take others pages to do! She shares a real and thoughtful journey through some major life challenges and manages to weave a faith inspired narrative of a loving and faithful God who has pursued her from before time began. You will be encouraged as you see the world open up for her in new ways and realize the personal touch of God in her life is already operating in yours, as the reader, if you would just open your hearts. As a Christian for 30 plus years, I am renewed and encouraged in my knowledge of the keeper of my faith!
Cindy has been blessed with such a gift for articulating her life’s experiences and her faith journey. The wording and imagery used in this short, easy read captures the attention of the reader instantly. When reading this book you will feel as if you can feel, taste, touch and smell every struggle, every heartbreak and every success. This story has something that everyone can relate to and learn from and it will, without a doubt, bless and encourage you!
