Author Mary Banosabout this book: My book is about the power of encouragement, and how we can encourage ourselves, as well as every day ways we can encourage each other. We can uplift and inspire others, one life at a time.

I had talked for many years about writing a book one day. Friends would often ask me, "When are you going to write a book?" In August 2009 one of my brothers committed suicide. Over the years I have become the kind of person who tries to pull out something positive during negative times/experiences. As I was spending several weeks grieving my brother's death, one day I thought about the book writing... and thought that the positive I would pull out of this negative period of time in my life would be to start that first book, about encouragement. I then spent 3 years of writing and editing my book, as I also had many other things going on - working full time, going through 2 surgeries and recovery periods, and completing 5 semesters of college classes.

Over the years I have helped hundreds of people, one on one. That contributed to my book title. It is about uplifting one life at a time. Each of us can do that. And then we change many lives.

The cover of my book is very special, in that the picture was painted by one of my close friends, who is an amazing artist. She read my book, and then painted a picture from her inspiriation after reading it. Having a book cover that has a picture painted by a dear friend added to the joy of the experience.
