Abbotsford author launches new book, Soles Defining Souls

Release event set for Wednesday, Nov. 25 in Abbotsford

Two years ago, Abbotsford writer Lori Dixon wrote an article for Christian Woman Magazine and connected a survey to the story, asking women if they had ever been emotionally hurt by women in the church.

More than 150 women from around the world responded. The book, Soles Defining Souls, is a result of the survey and is filled with quotes from the various women.

A book launch takes place Wednesday, Nov. 25 from 7 to 9 p.m. at The Reach Gallery Museum (32388 Veterans Way) and on Saturday, Nov. 28 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at House of James (2743 Emerson St.).

Dixon says the book is “both convicting and encouraging, offering healing and restoration.” Illustrations are by Abbotsford artist Alisha Deddens.

Net proceeds from sales of the book are going to Cyrus Centre and the LIFE Recovery House.

There is also a treasure hunt book drop happening, with 50 copies being left behind all over the world.

Three copies were dropped in Disney World, Dallas and Disneyland during the week of Nov. 7.

The following week, copies were dropped in Seattle, Nashville, Denver, New Zealand and beyond.

During the week ending Nov. 28, four books will be dropped locally. Follow the hints to find the books at
