Reading Again

So, I've been reading A LOT! Which means I haven't been writing a lot, but that's okay. I think sometimes we need a break and we need to read some amazing books. As I read, I learn. I get lost in story and I learn.

I read books 1 & 2 of Carol Moncado's The Montevaro Monarchy Series

Good Enough For a Princess


Such a sweet story!! Loved it and moved on straight away to book 2--

Along Came a Prince


Ha!! So good! Will be reading book 3 shortly

More Than a Princess


I love reading about royalty, kingdoms, princesses, princes, kings and queens. And islands! All their own. Seriously. This is good reading.

Won't you join me?

My Word of the Year

I'm a day late! Apologies. But not sure anyone is reading this blog anyway. :)

So my WOTY is:

Renew!

Dictionary.com defines it several ways:

1. To begin or take up again

2. To restore or replenish

3. To revive or reestablish


I'm viewing my WOTY as a spiritual renewal. Not that God has every left me. But I'm to be reminded that He never leaves us. His spirit within us is always renewing us to be the person He wants us to be.

We have continual renewal through Him. I tend to forget that. When I worry, I'm forgetting that He is faithful. When I choose a wrong path, I'm forgetting to look to Him for the way to go. When I say things I shouldn't I'm forgetting to wait for His words.

The list can go on and on.


Psalm 51:10New King James Version (NKJV)

10 Create in me a clean heart, O God,
And renew a steadfast spirit within me.



So, this is where I'll live in 2015. 

What about you? Do you have a word?

Word of the Year

It's 2015---Any resolutions?

A lot of people talk about how they don't make any resolutions because they never keep them. Like 1 day into the New Year and they're done--broken.

I know the feeling.

So, a  lot of those same people now pick a 'word of the year.' I really like this. I've done this in the past. I've had people ask me how you get your word for the year. The simplest way, in my opinion, is that the word will settle in your spirit. It will feel right and give you a peace.

Have you done this before? Do you have a word for 2015?

Or if you have resolutions, that's awesome, too.

I'll be posting my word on Monday.

How about you? Will you join me?

Rich in Hope--Coming November 2014



Book 2 of the Richness in Faith series is coming soon--and I'm VERY excited. Jenny and Stephen's story is one of hope-something we all  need at one time or another.

Blurb--
When beautiful underwear model, Jenny Harris, is scarred from a botched facial surgery she finds herself distraught and unsure. Her best friend, Katherine, offers her wildlife photographer brother’s waterfront home for a holiday sabbatical, since Stephen is on assignment in another part of the world. But Stephen returns home unexpectedly. It seems he was somewhere he wasn’t supposed to be, again, and his employer has grounded him.  While Jenny doesn’t understand Stephen’s lack of compassion for her situation, he can’t understand her obsession about her looks. When Jenny, in an attempt to help Stephen out, announces to his boss that she's his fiance, a whirlwind fake courtship starts. But Jenny soon finds herself falling for the renegade photographer who’d rather spend his time in the wilds of the jungle than in civilization. Will Jenny’s new perspective on life give her the hope she’s been searching for or will it only lead to broken dreams and a broken heart?

Book Review-Running Lean-Diana Sharples






When I started this book, I really didn't have an idea of how it would end. Would it be the 'tied up in a pretty bow' ending? Or would it be a sad ending? Diana Sharples did an amazing job with the book. The ending was perfect! Of course I'm not going to tell you the ending--you have to read. This was a great Y/A book with issues that so many teens face. I've personally not dealt with these issues, but I felt Stacey's struggle--and Calvin's as he tried to help her. This is a book I would recommend. Well written, characters that act true to their situations. Passion, heartbreak, sadness, joy--yeah, it's all there.


When you cause me to cry in the airport while waiting on my plane--I say you've done a great job as a writer. Well written, Diana!!
