BOOK BLURB: What if your child shot himself while you were in the next room? What if you held him as his heartbeat for the last time? What if Satan whispered in your ear, "Now where is your God?" Find out how Jean Ann Williams reached out with her spirit and mind to the one true Father. Discover how the Lord God answered her and walked alongside her in the most difficult grieving journey of her life.

BOOK BLURB: Fifteen-year-old Kari Rose discovers how much trouble she and her two sisters can get into when they stay at their ancient granny's for spring break. Granny gets a wild-haired notion at three in the morning, and she’s leaving with or without them. Kari makes the decision to take her sisters and ride with Granny in her old Cadillac on a five-hundred-mile-long trip north to visit family. Miles down the road, this harmless act finds Granny no longer able to drive, and Kari must take the wheel. Soon after, the four travelers are caught in a freeway-closing-down snowstorm which brings everyone and everything to a standstill. 

A second blizzard with catastrophic impact is about to descend upon them, and Kari must determine the best way to find shelter and beat the storm. Will Kari trust her gut instincts and rely upon a complete stranger to lead them to safety?

I've read (and enjoyed!) Road Trip to Delusion but would like to win the other book by this author. 

We live in a southern Mill town and the railroad still goes through here. I would love visitors to see the history as enjoy a meal at a good southern buffet v

My mom's sticky buns. Sausage and cheese with crackers. Anything my MIL makes  :)

Thank you for this opportunity to win.

in Him,

Cheri :)

I LOVE homemade peanut butter fudge.  There isn't really any special dish my family serves only at Christmas.  Maybe I should try to come up with one and start a new tradition. :)  

Quilt. I have both books, Already reviewed God's Mercies and Roadtrip is in my TBR and reviewed pile.

Family values: Love, Faith, Respect

Ive already read and reviewed the book. After I finished I gave it to a lady in our church whose son had recently committed suicide. She thanked me later and said it helped her more than anything to have read it. Thank you Jean Williams. 

Please enter me for the quilt 

Ahhh, Gail, thank you so much for passing my book along to this mother. This is my first feedback on a parent having read my book.

1. I love eating chocolate fudge with or peanut brittle...cookies candies and sweet breads :)

 I would take our guests to visit the world's largest collection of Frank Lloyd Wright buildings in the world, which is Florida Southern College.

Then I would take them to eat at the Terrace Hotel, which is our oldest hotel in our town.

I copied this post for Angela who had this new comment in the November discussion.

My year has been a hard one. I lost my oldest child to suicide 8 months ago. I have been thinking about trying Yoga classes in the new year, I really want to accomplish this goal. I also want to help others survive though this grieving process as I learn to do so myself. I hope to read your book. Thanks for writing such deep thoughts.

Hi, Angela;

I'm so glad that you made it to the giveaway. You and your family have been in my thoughts and prayers every day. Thank you for sharing your heart. I copied and pasted your response to the December contest. I'm sorry If I gave you the wrong link. Looking forward to getting together with you in 2019. You are a Blessing!
