Bratcher will sign new book at Flat Creek Baptist senior event

Local author Connie Campbell Bratcher of Sharpsburg will sign her new inspirational poetry book, “Shine the Light,” at the B-Acts (senior citizens) Christmas party at Flat Creek Baptist Church in Fayetteville on Dec. 12 at 7 p.m. The artist/illustrator will be there to sign as well.

Bratcher says, “My new book, ‘Shine The Light,’ is a book of excepts from my three previous books, ‘Inspirational Messages in Poetry~ For a Deeper Faith,’ ‘For a Closer Walk,’ and ‘For a Clearer View.’ These poem excerpts are short, easy to memorize, and each is followed by a related Scripture verse. D.D. Watson’s paintings are in color, and my web and book designer, Gabriele Ervin, has included color illustrations on each of the poem pages.This is a very beautiful gift book.”

Bratcher continued, “The prayer of my heart is that this book will touch the hearts of readers in a way that would inspire them to shine the light of the glorious gospel of Christ into this world where there is so much spiritual darkness.”

Bratcher’s three previous books were endorsed by several local pastors.

Signed copies of the books can now be purchased at Pam’s Hallmark in Peachtree City or through Bratcher’s website:, and soon will be available to order through any bookstore.
