With the birth of our Savior, we are reminded of his teaching to forgive one another over and over again. Sometimes, the flesh side of ourselves stands in the way of doing what we know is right. Lila and Conrad have made mistakes that turned to regrets that only forgiveness could heal. Once I determined that had to happen in the story the scenes began to unfold naturally. (less)

Contract Signed for new book..."A Perfect Fit"



It was a great day today because I signed and mailed the contract back to the publisher for my fourth book... "A Perfect Fit". What an absolute privilege it is to write. I can't believe my life and how lucky I am to do this as my job. The ideas keep coming for books and my desk and office are becoming, well, catastrophic if you can imagine. I have notes upon notes upon notes. Body mannerisms... Read more of this blog post »

Wow - this was fantastic. I really couldn't wait to get home and open up the story to learn more. I fell in love with the family and my heart sank with the truth. Highly recommend.

Great start to the book of Revelation. Not sure I can read on to the others in the set but I did enjoy the visual explanation and enjoyed the fictionalized drama.
