We’ll showcase the art on the books for the rest of the week as well as the works of the winners 🙂

************************************

Read. Enjoy. Love. Help.
Hello! Here’s a Christmas gift idea for you to give to Young Adults and book lovers.

Just Like Harry Potter, Twilight, and such, The Seven is targeted for Young Adult readers, as well as the kids at heart and book lovers. Though it doesn’t really matter how old you are, if you like to read, you’ll definitely love this book.

Another reason why I recommend you, especially the youth, to read this because aside from the beautiful magical story, there is also depth in the story. It has a lot of valuable lessons and morals even if it’s the work of fiction.

Here’s a copy of my column/article about this book:

There’s truth in fantasy
By MARIA KATHRINA LOPEZ YARZA
November 7, 2011

MANILA, Philippines — Credence is to believe and to trust the truth about something. It is that on which our faith lies.

I am not really an avid reader of fantasy books, but once I start reading one, I always feel like I am being transported into a world of make-believe, mesmerized, and never letting go of the book until I finish reading it down to the last page.

It was fun reading “The Seven: The Key of Credence,’’ a book that made me feel like a teenager again. I can definitely relate to the youthful curiosity and love of adventure of the main character Ryan Trish and her friends.

The Key of Credence tells us about Ryan and her friends and their experience in an entirely new world — one that involves the Heavens and the Helles. Reading it, I am transported to Sactae Mundus and Intero Regnum, two of the fictional places in the book. The places are so beautifully described that I see the vivid imagery in my mind.

From among the many conversations in the story, two have touched my heart.

The first one speaks of finding courage and hope from unexpected people and unexpected places. For example:

“It’s pretty childish I know, but because of that I never lose my courage to face whatever comes my way. It’s like… I always anticipate someone… something to support me whenever I needed it. And guess what, the imaginary assistance I need never fails to back me up on the verge of giving up.”

“Imaginary?” Ryan asked skeptically, one eyebrow raised, “Like imaginary friends?” “I mean like , when I least expect it, a friend, a relative, and even a complete stranger would miraculously appear and lend their hand to whatever difficulties I was going through. It was like someone told them, pushed them to help me.”

The other one speaks of friendship, loyalty, and faith – faith in oneself, faith in others, and faith in God above all things…

“You must understand that the most important thing apart from religion is your faith Trish, your faith in Him. And when you believe, you would follow what He had said. And that is to spread love around you. If you did just that, what possibility for any of you to not be saved then, when the time of judgment comes?”

WRITTEN BY A FILIPINO

This book was written by a full-blooded Filipino, Veronica Mist, proving that Filipinos can also create wonderful fantasy stories, similar to Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Twilight and so on. Book publisher Josephine Litonjua of Ishin Dream Publishing said: “I wanted to show the world that Filipinos are equally or maybe more than talented than writers abroad.”

I am likewise proud of Veronica Mist. She is a close friend of my best friend Ysiad in high school. Upon learning that Veronica wrote a fantasy book, memories of some 13 years ago flashed back when Ysiad would tell me that she had a friend who loved to write stories about the paranormal, the supernatural, her own fantasy world. That friend turned out to be Veronica Mist, now a published author.

To the beautiful and magical story, Veronica also added a twist of war in the human soul, about the end of the world, and also of God’s unwavering love, incorporating moral lessons in the story that will surely touch the heart and soul of the reader.

“Maybe I’m just too ambitious, but still I want to teach today’s younger generation, especially teenagers who have been losing their morals, respect and dignity because of the environment they’ve grown into.” Veronica shares.

“The Seven: The Key of Credence by Veronica Mist” is available at Powerbooks and National Bookstore. You may also purchase it from me for the same price where part of the proceeds will go to my medical funds. Veronica Mist and Isshin Dream Publishing are willing to give me a certain percentage from the sales of the book I get to sell. Not only will they be able to reach more booklovers to read the book, moreover, they will have reached my heart with their helping hands. You can purchase the book by visiting my website or contact me at 0906-3360757.

“Do not be afraid. Because if you let these fears consume you, you’ll most likely fail even before everything else starts.”

You may place your order/s HERE or contact me at 09063360757.

Thank you so much! Take care and God bless us!

Wanted: Pen, paper, musical instruments by Kcat Yarza

MANILA, Philippines — etting an education prepares us physically, emotionally, mentally and socially to survive challenges in the real, big world out there while trying to accomplish our dreams. Even President Obama said, “Through education, we learn how to learn.”

I am forever grateful to my parents for giving me a good quality education. I might not have excelled in academics but the values that I learned in school really come in handy in my life’s journey.

While most claim that private school education is better than public schooling, it is still up to the student if he or she wants to excel and make use of every educational learning device and material to augment his knowledge.

ELPIDIO SINGCO NATIONAL HIGH SCHOOL

This school is located on a land donated by the kindhearted Singco family. It was built by the residents of the community by putting together their meager resources so that their children could go to school.

Ernesto Ganado or Tito Bong is an OFW working in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. His family owns a farm in his hometown in North Cotabato and most of his workers’ children study at the nearby Elpidio Singco National High School.

One of Tito Bong’s dreams is to help these children in his town to finish schooling in a good school environment — without leaky roofs, un-cemented floors, and collapsing walls. The school building is made from sawali and nipa so much so that when heavy rains come pouring down, the teachers and the students all have to deal with the leaks and the muddy floors.

But this miserable condition did not deter the teachers from teaching and the students from studying. The students continue with their dreams to finish their education and to move on to find success in their lives.

Tito Bong shares, “A student who is willing to learn will survive at all costs despite the hardships and obstacles that come by.”

By next school year, a new classroom will have to be built for the incoming third year high school students. We can help in the reconstruction of the school and in the fulfillment of their dreams by connecting with Tito Bong at 09167564027 or ebongganado@gmail.com for inquiries and donations.

PENS & PAPERS FOR A CAUSE

When Jade Samson and her family were living in Singapore several years ago, she joined a group that collected used household items and gave them to whoever needed them. She met some people who donated school supplies instead; and so she thought, these school supplies would be a big help to the kids in the local elementary school in her town in Narra, Palawan. So every time she collected a box of school items, she sent it to Estrella Village Elementary School, and made all the students, teachers, and parents so happy and thankful.

Now that Jade and her family are back in their hometown, they still help the students in their little way, providing yearly incentive to the graduating class valedictorian in order to encourage more students to study harder.

The son of Jade is turning one year old this December, and to make it more special, she thought of doing something extra nice for the kids of the school again by giving gifts and supplies to the 186 elementary students of the school. Thus, Paper and Pencils For a Cause was born.

We can help support this project by donating paper, pens, crayons and other school supplies, or unwanted but still usable schoolbags and other school materials. In this way, we will not only be helping the children, but we can also help our planet Earth by not throwing as trash but passing on to others the usable and recyclable stuffs that we do not need anymore. For your donations (in goods and in kind), contact jade.samson@ymail.com

WANTED: BIG HEARTS

A few days ago, Joanne Gonzales, one of my friends from Bukidnon, shared that a fire transpired in their town school, the Pangantucan Central Elementary School. Although the fire department responded quickly, they were not able to save the building because it was made of wood and light materials. All classrooms were razed down to the ground.

DepEd, together with the local government, and other government agencies are now doing their part in prioritizing the rebuilding of the school.

As part of the community, Joanne and her townmates are currently seeking finances to buy band instruments for the students’ use because all their band instruments that were kept inside the school were destroyed in the fire as well.

Their town fiesta is fast approaching, and the students are worried that they do not have any musical instruments. It gives joy to these kids to be able to play music in order to give joy to their town mates during events like this.

Let us help them in raising money to buy lyres and drums. Let us put smiles to these children’s faces while playing music for the town. You may get in touch with Joanne Gonzales at charming_anne106@yahoo.com for your donations.

Each child who is willing to learn and to be taught deserves not only the right to be schooled, but also to be provided with the necessary educational tools that they need, and to study in an environment conducive to learning as well. We have been given that chance to be properly educated, it is their turn to receive the privilege and the blessing.
