By juggling diaper changes, soccer games, music lessons, laundry, and two more children, I finished my first manuscript—a Western—in just under fourteen years.

I have always been fascinated by the Amish way of life and now write Inspirational Amish Romance. I am drawn to the strong faith of the Plain people and admire the importance they put on enduring family ties. I have visited and studied Amish communities in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin where I met with a bis

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe was passed to me through 2 generations of very capable cookie makers. I’ve tried MANY oatmeal chocolate chip recipes, but this is my favorite. These cookies are soft, chewy and so delicious. I ALWAYS double the batch (it makes approx. 5 dozen cookies), it fits just perfectly that way in my KitchenAid, and I love freezing the extra dough or cookies. So if you’d like to do a smaller b...

“I cannot give up chasing after happiness simply because there might be pain down the road.”
Jennifer Beckstrand, Kate's Song

“Grief is a stern teacher, but I am confident I could not have learned some lessons in any other way. For that, I am grateful. Grateful to God for loving me enough to stretch me and push me and crush me, to refine me in the furnace of affliction, to force me to stretch my faith beyond what I could see.
God loves me more than I can possible comprehend. He watches over me. He watches over all of us. But if the way were easy, how could we grow into who He wants us to be? How could our faith become unshakable?”
Jennifer Beckstrand, Kate's Song

“Every choice involves some kind of pain. Choosing one path means rejecting another along with everything down it.”
Jennifer Beckstrand, Kate's Song
