The book, which initially was released digitally in April, will also be available in Lifeway Christian Stores, Mardel, and other retailers.The brick and mortar release is Phase Two in Buckingham’s distribution strategy. Elevate Entertainment will handle key retail outlets and joins Serv Others, which has provided direct sales distribution for Nourishments.
“We are thrilled to offer more access to Nourishments by releasing the book in major Christian bookstores,” Buckingham says. “This availability, along with internet availability, will make nourishing our souls easier than ever!”
“I met Deborah for the first time at NRB earlier this year,” says Marty Drury of Elevate Entertainment. “After spending just a few minutes with her, I knew I wanted to work with her. Deborah is a gifted communicator with a timely, encouraging message to all.”
Deborah Buckingham recently completed a 60-day media tour covering 26 states to promote Nourishments. During the media tour, Buckingham appeared as a guest on LeSea Broadcasting’s The Harvest Show, Cornerstone Television Network’s Real Life, Christian Television Network’s (CTN) The Herman and Sharron Show, Moody Radio’s This Is The Day with host Nancy Turner, Campus Crusade for Christ radio, TCT’s TCT Alive, Atlanta’s WATC-TV-57’s This Day with B.J. Arnett and more.
Nourishments was born out of Buckingham’s time as a stay-at-home mom while her husband, Greg, was building their successful family business. Desiring to remind her children of her love in the middle of their school days, while at the same time planting Scripture into their hearts during their youth, Deborah Buckingham formed a habit of tucking encouraging notes into the lunches of her school-age children.
“The seeds for Nourishments were actually planted many years ago when my kids were in school,” Buckingham says. “I used to write little ‘nourishments’ on index cards and pop them in their lunch bag. The ‘nourishments’ included a Bible verse personalized for them. Sometimes the index card got thrown away along with the apple without being read, but many other times they would share with me later in the evening how the ‘nourishment’ spoke to them. In high school, my son would often tell me his friends would ask to hear the ‘nourishment’ of the day around the lunch table.”
“Even as adults, we all need the nourishment of Scripture on a daily basis,” says Buckingham. “That’s what this book is all about.”
The book has received rave reviews from industry insiders such as Paul Eshleman, vice president, Campus Crusade for Christ, who says “Deborah Buckingham helps us to uncover God’s love and heart for us in the nuggets of Nourishments she provides in this daily devotional book. Her insightful questions in the devotional help us to answer personally whether we are trusting in God’s marvelous promises.”
