Gifts of a Hearing Heart by Georgia Blosil

Kathleen Kavanagh is a student attending Stanford. Mrs. Atwood owns an antique store, the Antiquarian House - The Atwood collections, and Kathleen visits it and requests to look old photos hoping to find her Grandfather, David Brewster, on her grandmother's side. Kathleen browses the file and locates the name David Brewster, a resident and business owner of San Francisco, brother to Andrew Brewster of Pennsylvania. As Kathleen leaves the store with a picture of what might be her ancestor, she has the feeling that her Grandfather is close to her and trying to influence her life. Imagination?

About the Author

Georgia Jensen Blosil is a graduate of the University of California at Berkeley, where she studied music and completed a humanities major.
In her early twenties, she wrote music and lyrics for various programs, including an orchestral and choral composition performed in concert with members of the Los Angeles Philharmonic. Shawnee Press in Delaware Water Gap, Pennsylvania, published her choral compositions.
A mother of six boys and one girl, Georgia happily shifted her attention from a music career to motherhood. As an active member herself, through the years she has written and directed many musical events for members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In 1980 she wrote and designed a book about trampoline exercise: Bouncercize, which became a best seller in the fitness industry.
In recent years she has turned more to writing literature and family histories. Her brother’s naval picture and her commentary regarding his loss on the submarine USS Bullhead are featured in Saints at War: Experiences of Latter-day Saints in World War II. Her poem Where Was Mary won first place in the 2007 National American Mother’s Poetry contest. Her writing has been featured in a Nevada publication, Desert Saints. Many of her poems, with illustrations by artist Darin Ashby, have been carried in bookstores. She has written and produced a book of verse, which she donates to children’s hospitals and shelters. Another current publication is How to Write an Interesting Personal History—Without Lying.
Georgia and her husband, Warren, live in Provo, Utah, and presently have twenty-five grandchildren, and one great-grandchild—a boy.
