    Thank you Sandra for writing "Push Upward and Bloom Where You Are Planted". This is such an inspiring book. An absolute must read. You are and always will be an inspiration to others. I have picked up my guitar at times and felt lost in song. Sometimes being afraid to move out of my comfort zone. Thank you for reminding me that my talent is to glorify god and for his direction through faith. I have been so blessed to have you in my life. So excited to see you blossom in gods plan for you. I am looking forward to reading your next book. God Bless

    I met Sandra a few months ago and immediately connected with her. She loves Jesus and is passionate about helping others to walk in their calling. Most of us think that we’re not good enough to be use by God. Through her book, Sandra reveals the simplicity by showing the steps she has taken in fulfilling the plans the Lord has for her life and shows us that we can as well. I encourage you to read it and take a step of faith in fulfilling your destiny.

    Sandra is someone I met a few years ago and connected with right from the beginning. She has such a wonderful attitude and spirit about her. She talked about writing a book and I was so excited for her when she told me it was done. Of course I wanted to buy one, well I actually bought 10 and she gave me one as a gift. I've been gifting them and blessing others with her book. She is so on point about using your talents for the Kingdom of God and listen to what he says for us to do. Taking time to pray each day, journal and being of service is so important. I recommend this book to everyone one who needs inspiration and know that we are all God's Children and he is calling us to push upward and bloom. Looking forward to your next book Sandra. May God keep blessing you dear friend.

    PUSH UPWARD AND BLOOM WHERE YOU ARE PLANTED is an excellent book and a "must read" for young and mature Christians alike. It is a discerning and valuable exploration into how to identify your God-given talents and then use them for God's glory. Perhaps you are a mature Christian, and you have been feeling a gentle "nudge" from the Lord lately to use a certain God-given talent. But instead of taking action, you have been hesitant. If so, you definitely will want to read this book by author Sandra Lloyd Cranford. PUSH UPWARD AND BLOOM WHERE YOU ARE PLANTED encourages those of us who have been hesitant in using all of our gifts to hesitate no longer. Time is short! Perhaps you're a young Christian, and you've never considered the possibility that God gave you talents that could be used for His glory. If that is the case, then this book definitely belongs on your library shelf. The author helps you explore the reasons God "gifts" you with various talents.... More > Then in Chapter 6, she offers a checklist that helps you identify your talents so they can be used for the Kingdom of God. This book is an easy "read" and, as is stated in the book, a "call to action" to put your gifts to use now - NOT later! Once I started reading it, I couldn't put it down. It is highly motivating because you get a glimpse into the author's own pursuit of identifying and then utilizing her talents to her fullest God-given potential. Not only is the book valuable for the individual reader; it is a great book for study groups. It should also be noted that PUSH UPWARD AND BLOOM WHERE YOU ARE PLANTED can augment many other books about gifts and talents. It would make a great supplement to Chapter 29 - Serving God - in Dr. Warren's New York Times best seller, THE PURPOSE DRIVEN LIFE. I highly recommend this book and feel you definitely will not be sorry you invested your time or your money in buying it.< Less

    I was thrilled to receive my signed copy of Sandra's book. Sandra and I have known each other for several years now and I am honored to call her my friend. Her book opened my eyes to the realization that I was looking in all the wrong places for my talents. Thank you Sandra for your heart warming, positive influence in my life! I am so looking forward to your next book.
