Hold Tight to the Call

failJennifer Slattery joined me on Tuesday for a visit. And today, she’s back to share some of the inspiration found in her new novel, Beyond I Do!

“Success is the ability to go from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm.” – Winston Churchill

Get Ready for Ruby! Guest Post by Sheryl Holmes

Sheryl HolmesI’m so delighted to welcome Sheryl Holmes, a co-author of The Christmas Tree Treasure Hunt and author of her own story, Towdah.

The aroma of turkey dinner still lingers in the air.  The countdown begins!  Sales abound and stores compete to fight for your attention, the kid’s lists are set before you, and there is no more room on the calendar squares to write-in one more party, gathering, or place to be!  The Christmas season is upon us all and the flurry of chaos lures us, draws us, pulls us into the whirling funnel.

Inspiration from Jennifer Fromke

Paths of Faith

I LOVE this man’s analogies! Great stories to drive home his viewpoints!

like a child for Jesus

Have you ever been hiking in a densely wooded area and you came across a path that look interesting; then as you turned onto that path and continued down it, you realized that it was a very low-traffic path, sometimes disappearing altogether and making you feel nearly lost?hiking1

Yeah me neither,

I don’t get a chance to hike much. I wish I could, because I know that I would love it, but the climate and topography of Dallas, Texas doesn’t allow for much hiking fun; or if it does, I have yet to know about it. Despite my physical hiking drought though, I have come to realize that my Spirit has been doing a lot of hiking over the past few years.
