For the romance genre, the majority of readers truly do expect a happily-ever-after ending. As an avid reader of romance myself, I not only expect a HEA, it's what I LOVE! Since, I'm writing the books I would love to read, I wouldn't ever be able to write anything but a HEA! I'm of the opinion that there are too many bittersweet and mediocre endings in real life. So with fiction, I want a book to inspire me and give me courage that I can be a better person. I hope readers feel the same with my novels! (less)

“Hardships are the Lord's greatest blessings to the believer. Without them we would love the Lord only for what He does for us. Our troubles teach us to love Him for who He is." Sister Norton in "The Preacher's Bride”
Jody Hedlund
tags: faith

“When things don't turn out the way we want, about the only thing we can do is know God is still there piecing together all the scraps of the events in our lives the way He has planned. He sees the big picture even when we don't.”
Jody Hedlund, Unending Devotion

“You don't have to let his definition of success be yours”
Jody Hedlund, Unending Devotion
