BUT…what if?

What if two people who were meant to be together for eternity had to live their earthly lives separate for many years? And what if when they did finally meet, they were a little broken and the miles apart helped them ease into their destiny together?

Years before online dating became a respectable option, two broken and imperfect souls digitally crossed paths on their journey back to God. Join Papabear38 (Duane) and Moongoddess (Selena) as they share the emails and notes that eventually brought them together.

Unafraid to dig deep, this fascinating love story is a book you won’t be able to stop reading. From the first page, you’ll find yourself smiling, laughing, and maybe shedding a few tears as you see the hand of God in their lives. Engaging and entertaining, this book is the perfect reminder of the power of God’s love, redemption, and hope.


About the Author:

Duane and Selena Pannell first “met” online while living in Virginia and Alberta, Canada, respectively. After a complicated long-distance relationship spanning four years, they married and have a son together.

Their first book is born of a separation in their lives when Selena was in Alberta for several months in 2013 with her dying father. Duane was going through their old correspondence because he is a “mushy man” and thought this was a story worth telling. After some coaxing, he convinced Selena and, with a little help from Google Docs, they began their collaboration on 3,000 Miles to Eternity.

They’ve just completed a three-year mission in the LDS Addiction Recovery Program, where they served as group leaders and led two twelve-step meetings a week in Vernal, Utah. Duane is putting the final touches on a manuscript addressing addiction recovery while Selena home schools their son and teaches archery in her spare time.
