Faith, Hope, and Gravity by Merrill Osmond and Shirley Bahlmann

On this post announcing the release of Merrill Osmond and Shirley Bahlmann's latest novel Faith, Hope, and Gravity, I am giving away a BROADWAY SONGS compilation by Merrill Osmond.  All you need to do is become a follower of my blog and leave a howdy in the comment section and your name will be in a drawing for the CD. My deadline is Sept 15.  US entries only.

I personally grew up with Osmond music, owned a few LPs, listened to them on the radio. On a tour with BYU a cappella choir in 1974 to Denmark, I met a group of girls who had investigated the Mormon Church all because the Osmond family were members and not afraid to say so. I was amazed at the far reaching influence of this family. 

Faith, Hope, and Gravity is Merrill Osmond's first novel. Along with the amazing talents of Shirley Bahlmann, this story will continue the great Osmond tradition of influencing the world. Read on.

Faith, Hope and Gravity is the spiritual, magical adventure of teenage Liam Kane as he discovers some of the same lessons Merrill Osmond learned as the world-traveling lead singer of the Osmond Brothers. Merrill, like Liam, was often misunderstood for his visionary quests to understand those who looked for answers to life's questions.

Liam's talents gain him international notoriety as 
"The Prophecy Boy" who swims with dolphins, dreams of a mysterious red door, and champions those who are misunderstood.

Surviving kidnapping, near-drowning, and imprisonment ultimately leads to the discovery that despite inherent differences, when people respect one another's unique abilities, the thread of commonality that runs through mankind grows ever stronger.

Turn the pages and join the unforgettable journey.

Merrill Osmond is a world-class entertainer, producer, author, motivational speaker and renowned lead singer of the Osmonds. Merrill and his siblings have produced 47 platinum & gold records and Merrill has written the lyrics for five #1 hit records. Merrill is a co-founder of the Osmond Foundation, which originally produced “The Children’s Miracle Network” Telethon. He has produced presidential inaugural events for both Reagan & Bush. Merrill is excited to release his first novel, Faith, Hope & Gravity. Visit his website at:

Shirley Bahlmann has written a wide variety of genres, including historical fiction, novels, biographies, how-to, and how-not-to books. One of her favorites is a children’s book titled “When the Chicken Crossed the Road” which comes with instructions and a chicken-colored washcloth so you can roll your own chicken! Shirley finds the most annoying thing about being a prolific writer is sleep, because she’d rather be writing.
