New Xulon Title: The Woman Who Spent Her Life Helping Others

Shafer leaves behind a touching memoir of the life journey she called 'home'

MAITLAND, Fla., Nov. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Margaret Loehlin Shafer led an extraordinary life and her legacy lives on in this new release. The author's roots were in India, as the daughter of Western missionaries and her final career placed her in New York City, working on behalf of homeless individuals as the founder of a large congregation's ministry. Within the pages of Margaret Loehlin Shafer's new book, Home Is the Journey: My Life ($22.99, paperback, 9781628397192; $9.99, e-book, 9781628397208) readers will gain a particular insight that the author held, that "true 'home' here on earth was not any particular place but the journey of life itself."


"[I hope readers take away] the challenge to walk the particular journey of life [that] God has given them by selflessly helping others," states Byron Shafer, the author's beloved husband. "It's a good read; it's informative on critical social issues like public education and homelessness; it will inspire readers to 'go and do likewise' (Luke 10:37)."

Margaret Loehlin Shafer's authority came from the quality of her accomplishments as: an educator of troubled youth in Mt. Vernon, New York; a recognized expert on public education issues working for the National Council of the Churches of Christ (USA); the planner and supervisor of a congregation's adult Christian education program with some 1,500 enrollments annually; and an honored worker in behalf of New York City's homeless persons, appointed to the boards of many relief organizations—such as Habitat for Humanity New York City, the Partnership for the Homeless and the Interfaith Assembly on Homelessness and Housing. Although she was called to her eternal "home" in 2012, the words of author Margaret Shafer live on through this memoir, "Home Is the Journey: My Life."
