I know Thanksgiving was yesterday but I wanted to wish you all a happy one and encourage  you not to stop giving thanks just because today isn’t called a day of thanks. The Word of God tells us:

Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:18 (NLT)

I need to cling to this during this season in my life where many things feel overwhelming but I know I am in God’s will. This new job continues to challenge me and I keep pressing in to Jesus.

There are days I think I was crazy to leave my easy job for this new one where I am still figuring out what I am doing. But God has this sweet way of giving me little glimpses that I am right where He wants me.

So I give thanks that He has given me this new job and I am immersed in His will.

What are you thankful for?

 

Write to the Point with Wildflowers from Winter November 21, 2012

This week’s write to the point is a little different.

Katie Ganshert, whose debut novel Wildflowers from Winter came out in May, has made available the first two chapters for you to read. To get a peek at this wonderful book  click here.

Katie’s book reminds me a lot of my novel A Bridge of Promise, which is now in the hands of some readers who are looking it over and giving me honest feedback.

The heroine in Wildflowers is a bit tough at first. There were points were I wasn’t sure if I liked her all that much. I knew that Bethany (the main character) was broken and she tried to cover up her brokenness.

My heroine, Ella, does the same thing. Instead of dealing with her wounds she attempts to conceal her hurt in destructive ways.

In honor of this peek into Wildflowers from Winter,  and in celebration of my book so close to being ready for submission, am giving away a copy of the book Wildflowers from Winter to one commentator.

This is my own copy that has been gently used but in great shape, I take care of my books 🙂 Because tomorrow is Thanksgiving, share one thing you are thankful for by November 27th at 5:00 pm and you will be entered in the drawing.

Have a blessed Thanksgiving!
