Hope Women's Clinic of Beaumont hosted a fundraiser Gayla, Nov. 11, 2008. Over 400 attended the event at the Elegante Hotel.
Guest speaker was W. Paul Young, author of "The Shack". He spoke of himself as an "accidental writer", because he wrote this book as a gift for his children. He planned to print 15 copies at Office Depot.
He was rejected by 26 publishers, and self-published with two friends. Today "The Shack" has been on the best seller list for 24 weeks, has sold 4 million copies and is in 35 languages.
"The Shack" is true, but not real." Young says, explaining that it's his interpretation of the human soul. God cares about each one of us from conception.
