Amanda Tero is a homeschool graduate who desires to provide God-honoring, family-friendly reading material. She has enjoyed writing since before ten years old, but it has only been since 2013 that she began seriously pursuing writing again – starting with some short stories that she wrote for her sisters as a gift. Her mom encouraged her to try selling the stories she published, and since then, she has begun actively writing short stories, novellas, and novels.

If something she has written draws an individual into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ, it is worth it!

“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding.” (Proverbs 3:5)

Debt of Mercy (short story) (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:39PM
Description: After hearing a sermon on Matthew 18, the story of Raboc and Ancel brewed in the back of my mind for a few weeks. February 23, the Lord allowed me to finish the rough draft of Ancel’s story (2, 133 words). It is not my desire to retell Scripture or reinterpret it neither is this story intended to be an allegory. It is simply a story to demonstrate forgiveness and a few of the lessons that I have learned in that subject.
Maggie's Hope Chest (Select)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:38PM
Description: It was the gift that Maggie had desired throughout her teen years. Yet was God's purpose for this gift for her to fulfil her own desires? Or did He have something much better in store? Something that Maggie could not quite understand?

Protecting the Poor by Amanda Tero
"Actual Rating: 3.5 stars out of 5

Because this is a novella, the plot picks up with striking swiftness: the first couple of chapters aren’t too action-packed, but after that, you really hit the ground running and reach the climax quickly. There’s a..." Read more of this review »

After reading a few reviews where it said this book didn't have as much romance content as book two, I decided to read it. It was a good mystery, and yes, the romance and "close calls" weren't as detailed as in "Shattered," which I appreciated.

“Has it ever occurred to you that one hundred pianos all tuned to the same fork are automatically tuned to each other? They are of one accord by being tuned, not to each other, but to another standard to which each one must individually bow. So one hundred worshipers met together, each one looking away to Christ, are in heart nearer to each other than they could possibly be, were they to become 'unity' conscious and turn their eyes away from God to strive for closer fellowship.”
A.W. Tozer, The Pursuit of God: The Human Thirst for the Divine

“No.” Elizabeth shook her head. Resolution seeped through her, as powerful as adrenaline. “No one can command my convictions. They are mine, given to me by God and meant for my life’s journey. You can destroy my possessions, but you cannot take what is in my heart.”
Alicia A. Willis, Grace Triumphant: A Tale of the Slave Trade

“Our God isn’t stingy with His grace, like we are sometimes.”
