Fort Wayne, IN, August 23, 2018 -- Mary Hilger, artist and educator, announces the release of her first book, Finding Beauty in Ashes. This book tells the story of resilience, faith and the ‘angels’ that God sent along the way, as Mary navigated the challenges of losing the love of her life in a foreign country. Readers, regardless of their background, will discover their own resilience and hope through the story of Mary’s journey.

 

When Mary and her husband, John, traveled to Amsterdam to take a river cruise to the Cologne region of Germany, they intended to share a once-in-a-lifetime journey, visiting the places where John’s ancestors had originated. But tragedy struck on their first night in Amsterdam; John collapsed shortly after dinner on the river boat and was rushed to the hospital, where he later died.

 

“Writing Finding Beauty in Ashes immediately following John’s death is one of the hardest things I have ever done, but also the most healing,” Mary commented. “It has already touched people’s lives in ways I could never have imagined.”

Mary Hilger has a Master’s in K-12 Art Education from the University of St. Francis and spent 34 years as an art educator. For the past 16 years, Mary has spread her art ministry throughout the world. Her chalk drawings on religious themes and her spiritual testimony have inspired groups and individuals to a deeper connection with God.
