The book, Eternity in an Hour, with subtitle, The Storyteller's Little Book About God's Big Gift of Time, is a testimony to the author's years of service as a Christian storyteller. She probes such questions as how we "hear" from God; how to "love" the Lord with all the mind; maintaining the positive attitude; living one day at a time; nature's built-in health remedy--laughter; the eleventh commandment--Love! The three year stint of prayer and meditation on the subject of Time and a lengthy poem addressing the ephemeral qualities as well as the eternal nature of TIME form the concluding pages.

About the Author
Maxine J. Bersch was born in WV Jan.23, 1919 into a family of storytellers, writers, musicians and poets. Her gift of storytelling was evidenced even in childhood and the writing as well. She is well known in Southern Baptist circles through the work with LifeWay Christian Resources in teaching the skills of the storyteller, and the publishing of her book "Storytelling in a Nutshell." In retirement years she continues to tell and to teach as opportunity arises, but more time is now devoted to writing. She has three children and four grandchildren, with multiple nieces and nephews who keep her busy with Facebook and email correspondence. Her motto is "Look up! Laugh! Love! and Lift!"and she adds--"I will do the best I can, with what I have, where I am, for Jesus' sake today!" One of her favorite scriptures is" Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof," which she translates to mean, "Live one day at a time."
