HAMPTON, Va., November 17, 2022 (Newswire.com) - Covenant Books author Patricia Palmer White, a native of Newport News, Virginia, has completed her new book, "Even Presidents Want to Know if They Are Going to Heaven: How to Be Sure You Are Going to Heaven": an engaging biblically based work that offers spiritual guidance for readers seeking to strengthen their relationships with God.
Author Patricia Palmer White is the widow of Pastor Calvin D. White from Louisville, Kentucky, where they served as pastor and first lady of the Beargrass Missionary Baptist Church for 18 years. Returning to Virginia to care for her ailing mother, Patricia White became the first lady of the Union Bethel Baptist Church in Chesapeake, where Rev. White pastored for seven years until he was called home to glory. Her role as wife to Pastor White, mother of Kevin and Jaci, grandmother of eight, and great-grandmother of 14 did not hinder her in her duties as the first lady. She faithfully served as youth director, Sunday school teacher, youth Bible study teacher, Vacation Bible School study teacher, Sonbeam choir director, and program director of the church drama group. She is passionate about the children knowing the Lord and how to handle His Word. Her relationship with Jesus Christ keeps her aware of His abiding presence.
Patricia writes, "My mom and dad were Baptist. My dad's father was one of the founders of the Men's Star Bible Class at his church, where my dad became active. He loved the Men's Star Bible Class, where he taught Bible study. My mom had sick babies but always saw to it that my sister and I went to a Baptist church close by within walking distance. I remember being very young and holding hands as we walked to church. At that time, Mom was not able to attend church, but I would often see her reading her devotional and kneeling to pray. When we started grade school, all the kids in our project would walk together to a nearby Catholic Church and to their summer camps and programs. At age twelve, I joined the Catholic Church along with my sister and my friends. The fact that we had broken a long-held tradition of being a Baptist family did not bother Mom and Dad one bit, as long as we were in church. After all, we are all serving the same God with our eyes on the same destination—heaven. I did not know Jesus then, but I knew all about the Virgin Mary and St. Jude."
