Jacksonville, FL, April 20, 2018 – Fox’s Book of Martyrs, The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten-Boom, Tortured for Christ by Richard Wurmbrand, and the recent observance of Holocaust Remembrance Day—all of these cause us to pray for persecuted people of faith in China, Burma, North Korea, the Middle East, and the world over. Now included is Konstatin Jaroshevich’s story of unbelievable persecution as a young teen immigrant in America to a Holocaust survivor in Europe to decades of church planting in the United States and Europe as told by his granddaughter Dr. Alix Jaroshevich Walsh.
CONSECRATED is a story of one man’s faith through the trials he faced and suffered through, including the Holocaust. It’s a look into history as the reader watches it unfold with a different perspective than standard history books. It’s evidence of faith in the darkest of places and a demonstration of God’s faithfulness when it comes to His children and His servants. It depicts the impact of loving our neighbor as ourselves, about the choices we make and the courage to make the right choices. CONSECRATED is a story about miracles.
“Through a series of miracles, my grandfather survived the concentration camps.” Dr. Alix J. Walsh
Konstatin’s story stayed within the family annuals for decades until Dr. Alix J. Walsh finally answered God’s call to the ministry He had passed down through her grandfather. Her mother wanted her answer to the Most High’s calling to be authentic and not to appease her parents.
Walsh said, “I didn’t fully know many of my grandfather’s stories, his surviving the German Concentration Camps, and his call to ministry until my dying mother began sharing the stories with my daughter. I then discovered that my grandfather was a man of great faith, courage, values, and attributes that would later sustain him when he faced formidable persecution. I then began this book to honor the life of Konstantin Jaroshevich and ensure his legacy is eternal and carried forward to future generations. I pray his life encourages and blesses its readers.”
Storehouse Media Group is pleased to announce the official global book launch of CONSECRATED. Its book tour starts at Lake Mary, Florida and arrives in New York City on April 24, 2018 with the official book launch. It ends with America’s premier author showcase event, Book Expo America and Book Con in New York City, the city of the author’s birth, where she will participate in numerous interviews and red-carpet events along with several book signings and podcast interviews.
