Books by George Jerjian
Spirit of Gratitude: Crises are Opportunities (2018)
This is the author’s life journey, where his challenges have acted as a springboard to new lives, where obstacles have acted as finger posts to new lives, and Jerjian uses his personal stories to engage the reader to identify their crises as opportunities, and to be grateful for them because the spirit of gratitude acts like a magnetic force drawing in joyous people and events.
Paperback, Kindle and Audible versions available.

This is a story in a million - 100 glass plates, photographs taken by Jerjian’s grandfather in the early 1900s, were stored in a grey steel box, which migrated with the Jerjian family from Arabkir, Turkey, to Alexandria, Egypt, where it stayed for almost 50 years, then onto Khartoum, Sudan, where it stayed for 20 years, then onto London, England, where it stayed for 20 years, then to Washington DC for about 10 years, before finally being exposed to daylight after a century of darkness, and finding its final home at the Armenian genocide Museum, in Yerevan Armenia.
Arabkir: Homage to an Armenian Community (2014)
The story of the Armenians of Arabkir (modern Turkey) spans three millennia and this book, which is a translation and abridged version of a book written in Armenian in 1969 in New York by 50 contributing editors, weaves together history and heartland, community and culture, food and faith, geography and genocide and its songs and famous sons.
Seeking God: A Pilgrimage in the Holy Land (2013)

Seven Ages: Personal Financial Planning (1997)
