Jill Eileen Smith is the author of the Wives of the Patriarchs series featuring Sarai, Rebekah, and upcoming Rachel, (Releases 2-1-14) as well as, the bestselling author of Michal, Abigail, and Bathsheba, all part of The Wives of King David series published by Revell (Baker Publishing Group.)

Her writing has taken her from the Bible to Israel and she loves learning how women lived in Old Testament times. When she isn't writing she can be found hanging out with family and friends, reading, bike-riding, testing new restaurants with her husband, or snuggling one of two adorable kitties. She lives with her family in southeast Michigan.

It is a pleasure to welcome my brother-in-law, Pastor Scott Bills of Faith Reformed Church to my blog today. He has some great thoughts on satisfaction with our lives and fits right in with the books on Solomon – the Loves of King Solomon series. So grab a cup of tea, sit back and enjoy some encouraging words from Pastor Scott.

This was also a fun book to write. It was a change to 1st person for me, but the voice of the story demanded it. It should release to e-book 8-1-14. I hope you enjoy it!

My comments would be biased because I'm the author. But I loved writing this story!
