Stacey, first I would need to know what your reading preferences are to recommend just one.

If you like historical romances, then I would recommend A Vote of Confidence (first book in the Sisters of Bethlehem Springs series).

If you like contemporary romances, then I would recommend Love Without End (first book in the Kings Meadow Romance series).

If you like women's fiction, then I would recommend A Promise Kept or Ribbon of Years.

I hope that's some help.

That's a hard question. My characters become very real, very individual people in my mind, so even when they are like me, they are more like themselves, if that makes any sense.

I put a lot of my own experiences into Allison (A Promise Kept) and Deborah (Beyond the Shadows) and Claire (The Forgiving Hour). And I think Cleo (Fit to Be Tied) has some of my quirky sense of humor and stubbornness. And I adore Katie (Catching Katie) because I love her spirit. I hope I have some of that without having some of her tendencies to march headlong into trouble.

Scripture Writing in my Faith Edition of the Happy Planner

[image error]

I have been a follower of Christ for over 41 years. I was passionate about His written word from Day 1. One wonderful spiritual discipline is to write out Scripture. It seems to go deeper when I take the time to write it down in my own hand.

In June, I saw a YouTube video about the One Book July 2017 challenge. In the planner community, there are more types of books and planners

I can always trust Angela Hunt for a wonderful read. Daughter of Cana transported me back to the time of Jesus. I especially loved seeing Yeshua through the eyes of one of His brothers.

“God makes each one of us for the time into which we are born. He creates us for a purpose. Our job is to know Him well, discover what He created us to do, and then do it for all we're worth for the rest of our lives. Ask God to show you your purpose. He will answer.”
Robin Lee Hatcher, Fit to Be Tied

“My child, never judge a man because of his race. Never. God looks at the heart. So should we. We are all made in God's image.”
Robin Lee Hatcher, Wagered Heart

“He walked as he'd learned to walk, with only a minimal limp, back straight, head held high in confidence rather than cockiness. He walked like a man who had learned to lean into God for whatever strenth he needed.”
