About the Ebook
In March 2020 normal life became uncertain and frightening with the lockdown for COVID-19. Zelia decided to share some favorite Bible verses for guidance through these challenging times. She paired Bible verses about faith with her photographs. The images are a reminder of the strength and peace we have through God’s guidance and protection. The main messages throughout the book are that God is magnificent, He is all powerful, and He is Love. For example, in Genesis, we learn that God created the world and every living creature in it. John tells us in Chapter 3, verse 16, that God sent His only Son to us so that all who believe in Him will have eternal life. In Psalm 23, King David expressed his conviction that the Lord’s goodness will be with us throughout our life and we will dwell in the House of the Lord forever.
Zelia has always had a passion for technology and often taught students and teachers how to incorporate digital technology into the instructional curricular of several school districts in North Carolina. After retiring in 2010, she began to pursue her passion for “capturing the beauty of nature” through digital photography, specifically nature from the low country of South Carolina. Since 2011, Zelia has studied photography under Donna Eaton, a North Carolina professional photographer. Zelia has had photos in the following publications: Virginia Wildlife Magazine, Our State Down Home in North Carolina magazine, West Virginia Executive Magazine, Scenic Virginia 2016 Winner, South Carolina Wildlife Calendar, the Charleston Calendar, The Thrivent Calendar. South Carolina Hunting and Fishing Guide, and the North Carolina Land Trust Calendar. Zelia won Best of Show in the 2012 Carolina Artist Photography Expo and is a multiple-time winner in the national Better Photo monthly contest.
