and thank you for taking the time during this holiday season to stop by my page.
This has been such a fun month for me. I recently learn that The Christmas Quilt made the ECPA top 10 fiction list. We are also having a fun, Facebook chat party where we are giving away a Kindle Fire HDX. You can enter to win here, and you can join the Facebook party here.
Fun stuff. But most importantly, folks are emailing me sharing how The Christmas Quilt has touched their hearts–which is all I really need to hear to stay motivated and keep writing.
Blessings to each of you,

Mid-week Inspiration, Christmas Surprises
Christmas is a fun time for surprises – folks coming to visit, a special gift under the tree, maybe an unexpected snow fall (okay – many of us had too much of that one this past week). Christmas surprises are some of my warmest memories.
Like the time my parents hid the “one important present” in the washing machine. Or when my son handed me a box full of “gifts” that he’d collected from his room. Or a Christmas Eve service that touched my heart and eased my soul.
Christmas can be a stressful time of year–financial burdens are more difficult to bear. Health problems can spoil a special day. If you are having an argument with a friend or family member, then Christmas seems to make that situation even more painful. I want to encourage you to look for Holy Surprises – special moments that God has placed in your life to heal your soul and draw you close to him. It might be as silly as a cat in a Christmas bag, but sometimes it’s the small things that lift our spirit.
ps – I’ll draw a winner from my latest Christmas drawing tomorrow (Thursday, December 12). If you haven’t entered yet, you can do so here.
