BOOKS: Wabash Valley author to sign books at Java Haute on Saturday


BRAZIL, Ind. — Brazil resident Marjorie E. Hopkins will sign copies of her Christian Life book, “Dying to Meet Him: Wit and Wisdom from a Funeral Director’s Wife” from 1-3 p.m. Saturday in Java Haute, at 3805 Wabash Ave.

As the wife of a funeral director, Hopkins got a much closer glimpse at death and, in consequence, life. Through this time, and while praying for years about her own fear of death, the author overcame and was drawn to the conclusion that humans avoid thinking and planning for this one unavoidable event in life.

“Dying to Meet Him” can help people have a more eternal and spiritual perspective on everyday life and help them be prepared for the inescapable, the certain, the inevitable, by encouraging them to be dying to meet Him.
