SOME DAY IT WILL MATTER by Suzanne Geimer and Kelly Geimer Lance
Every kid in trouble needs a special angel . . . We all have it in us to be one
Suzanne Geimer, a career emergency room nurse, and her daughter Kelly Geimer Lance have authored a new book dealing with the major challenges mothers and daughters face, and share their path to developing a loving and healthy working relationship through understanding and effective communication. They share their experience of how vitally important open communication can be in building fulfilling family relationships. The book is scheduled for release July 30, 2010.
As a singer songwriter Suzanne Geimer was able to include her daughter in the healing power of music, and as a dynamic duo they work with at risk teens throughout the country performing and communicating with them to share the importance of developing healthy life habits to change self destructive behavior and achieve their dreams for a happy future. The book includes songs that were written in Suzanne’s darkest hours, as well as songs written by Suzanne and her daughter, which can be heard on their CD, and are included in their performances while visiting with at risk kids. The Special Angel non-profit organization website www.specialangel.com is a beacon of hope for parents who need help reaching their kids.
John Walmsley, former child star on the "Walton’s" TV series and lead guitarist for the Special Angel Band since 1995, says “it is really touching to see the power of this musical journey we are taking, and watching the kids react to Suzanne and Kelly is simply amazing.”
For parents who have spent sleepless nights wondering where their teens are and what can be done as an individual parent to stop what is going wrong, and to find the tools that will enable them to gain trust and be heard by their children Suzanne and Kelly’s story is a message of healing hope.
The book is an inspiration to parents struggling with how to help their kids get back on track toward a productive and happy life. We live in a world where everyone is busy, and there seems to be no time for one-on-one communication. This real life family story offers real answers for today’s parents on the importance of making quality time and connecting with a daughter or son who may be heading for trouble.
