Chalkboard Specials, For Those Who Need Shelter Inside

Get the PAPERBACK edition

Ever had that cousin you see at family gatherings every six or so months, and that’s the only contact you have with him or her for a number of years? Whether that cousin is older or younger than you, you two both grow up, only seeing a sliver of each other’s lives for a few hours at a time, once or twice a year.

Occasionally, there’s a new set of braces, maybe some new facial hair, or a deeper voice some time after that. And maybe in a select few interactions with your cousin, it dawns on you that this relative has a unique life with a social network, with triumphs and agonizing losses, with odd sleeping habits and pet peeves. Of dreams to pursue.

You have a special invitation to walk with Vern Thompson, perhaps a guy not unlike that cousin you see every so often, and view what can actually be an extraordinary life. One of contested growth, and of newfound faith – learning your cousin is actually pretty okay to hang with, once you get past “What year in school are you in now?” or “What’s your major again?”
