Author Calvin Edward Ballard SR’s New Book, “Number (5) of Twelve (12),” Tells the Electrifying Story of the Author’s Life from Birth Up Until the Present Time –

Princess Anne, MD, May 14, 2024 –(– Calvin Edward Ballard SR, a loving husband and father as well as a veteran of the US Army, has completed his new book, “Number (5) of Twelve (12)”: a poignant memoir that follows the author’s life as one of twelve children, documenting the struggles, trials, heartaches, and triumphs the author and his family experiences throughout the years.

A native of Princess Anne, Maryland, author Calvin Edward Ballard SR became interested in his spiritual life due to his desire to be like his father. The author was drafted into the US Army in 1966 and served in Germany during his first year, later going to Vietnam and finishing out his three-year career. After departing from the army, Calvin graduated with a bachelor’s degree and returned to the army until 1993. Now he is married and has three lovely children and a wonderful wife.

“Number (5) of Twelve (12)” brings the author’s adventures, trials, and toils as a child and as an adult to life, while giving readers an in-depth look at how his parents were able to raise twelve children. His parents instilled in them the importance of love in the home, the importance of loving God, family, and how to navigate through life.

Calvin shares, “I had started my desire to write a manuscript about my life and tell my story so that each and every individual that would have the opportunity to read these facts would be able to see how a child which grew up in a large family can grow up with certain values, principles, and morals would use them in his life and offer the opportunity to anyone who read this accountability. They may even see how they may be able to apply them to their own life.

“… These are few lines of an individual’s true-life experiences of a child that was born number 5 of twelve on a small farm in a small country town. The moral of this accountability is that as you grow in life, you can learn many things if you open your heart and mind; you can learn a lot as you travel through life.”
