Heying Publishes New Book

March 28, 2013 by lmorgan · Comments Off 

This week, Petersburg author Teresa Heying is celebrating the nationwide release of her latest children’s book, “No Matter What You Do.”
The story illustrates that, even though it’s always hard to admit when we’ve done something wrong, it’s most important to remember that Jesus offers the gift of forgiveness. Readers look through a child’s eyes as a young mind comes to understand the concept of forgiveness in the Lord.
Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is now available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or by visiting barnesandnoble.com or amazon.com.
This is also an eLIVE title, meaning each book contains a code redeemable for a free audio book version from TatePublishing.com. eLIVE – Listen, Imagine, View, and Experience!
After 20 years of teaching full-time, Heying is now substitute teaching and resides in Petersburg, Nebraska, with her husband, Bob. She is also the author of “Fishing with Grandpa” (Tate Publishing, 2011).
