It’s been awhile

As I prepared to publish this novella, I felt very rusty. And then I realized why. The last book I published was All the Way My Savior Leads back in MAY! That is a long time for me in recent years. It’s good to be back in the publishing realm again.

My current book was inspired by a couple of minor characters who first showed up in Lily of the Valley. It was first published in an anthology I was part of entitled Where the Light May Lead. I have since updated and edited it. A few things are different, but not many. And all the changes were made after I started writing He Hideth My Soul (Orphans of the West #3)

And now here we are. I am excited to present this novella. It was fun to write and I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. Of course, as with all of my blog tours, there is a giveaway, so make sure you scroll through and enter it. I’m also including an exclusive excerpt you won’t want to miss. But first, here’s a little bit about the book.

About the Book

Trusting God is hard

Eleanor Miller has never lacked for anything, but she wanted to become a schoolteacher anyway to instill the love of learning into other children. Unlike what happened with her brother, Grover.

Grover hated school and authority. He rebelled any change he could. When he almost killed a man, their family was torn apart and he was disowned.

Eleanor understands her father’s decision, but she worries she will never see Grover again. Will she find out how sweet it is to trust Jesus in everything no matter what happens or will she stop trusting Him completely?

Have a Fruitful New Year!

 

Last Sunday, December 31, Pastor Stephen preached a sermon entitled, Have a Fruitful New Year. It was the perfect sermon. The sermon was based on John 15:1-8 and talked about abiding in Christ so we can bear fruit for Him. After the news we got the Thursday before, I needed to hear it.

Here are some of my favorite points from the sermon, summarized by me.

There are two different kinds of people. Those who bear no fruit and those who do bear fruit. Continue reading

Knowing that tribulation produces perseverance

I’m always amazed by how God often provides the teachings you need before you need them.This blog post connects many things that have happened the last four months of 2017 with what I have learned through Bible Study and from two sermons our pastor preached. This will be a long two-post blog series full of many difficult things, but in the end, and intermingled through it all, is peace that only God could provide. Continue reading
