BOOK BLURB: She must protect the Spear of Destiny at all costs He must bring the lady safely home But the powers of darkness chasing them have other ideas Lady Cristiana D'Clere, the new protector of the Spear, is on the run from the steward of her estate, who has kept her drugged for years. All she ever wanted was to be safe, marry well, and raise a bevy of wee ones. Instead, she is far from home, chased by men intent on killing her and stealing the Spear of Christ for its incredible powers. Sir Jarin the Just has never forgotten the woman who stirred his heart like no other. Determined to find and restore her to her proper place as Lady of Luxley Castle, he sets out on a journey fraught with more dangers than he ever could have foreseen. The biggest danger is to his heart, for he has vowed to remain unfettered and never surrender his freedom to a woman. Though the Spear protects the couple along their journey, Cristiana must learn to trust the One whose blood stains the relic, while Jarin must learn to rely on powers far above his own knightly skills. For the dark magic that is chasing them may take all the powers of heaven to defeat.

I take the innocence of childhood for granted. I need to slow down and appreciate the time I have with my little one and enjoy her innocent outlook.

I had several close calls with death growing up. One particular one had me in the hospital for a month at age seven. One treatment was left that had only been used on adults. My parents gave the go ahead and it worked. They helped me appreciate life as much as I could understand at that young age. 

Having breast cancer eight years ago makes me appreciate every single birthday and I know for now God has me here for a reason.

If we were to enter the Space Race again, I would like to see them go to Saturn.

The rings around Saturn have always intrigued me.

If the Lord tarries, then one day it might come true. 

About a year ago I joined a small group associated with my church, our focus was on a particular book about enjoying life.  It was only then during our study that  I became aware of the importance of celebrating our accomplishments. We started celebrating the birthdays of  group members in a huge way. That eye opener still has an impact on me and allows me to appreciate  life much more. Little things can have a huge impact therefore, my goal is to make a good and positive impact.

My parents, especially my mom taught me to celebrate life and to enjoy the small things because we might not ever have the big things. We thought we were rich when she made snow ice cream or homemade potatoe chips while we played board game. 


I took youth for granted. Of course we don't have the perspective we do as we get older. While I wouldn't want to go back, I sure do miss it.

My grandmother taught me to celebrate life when I was growing up. She was always full of fun and we never knew what to expect from her. I'll never forget taking her to the grocery after I was married. She liked to linger and look at everything so I got an aisle ahead of her only to hear this little voice in the other aisle calling"Pam, please don't squeeze the Charmin!" Of course I wanted to disappear then I realized that no one knew I was Pam. Still get a chuckle out of it after all these years.

I take for granted time--I need to spend more time with the Lord and less time with technology!
My Mother and Daddy taught me everything to make my life as pleasurable as possible. The main thing they taught me is to keep God first in my life. I think they should explore Mars next.

I believe we need to find a planet similar to Earth.  At some point in the future, we might need more space.  We have only explored a small portion of the galaxy.  There must be another planet with similar climate.  If something were to happen to our world, we need to be prepared.  Plus, it would be interesting to find out if our atmosphere is unique or is there another Earth-type planet.

I'm with Janet. I've always wanted to check out the rings around Saturn.

3.  My grandmother was a farm wife and mother of eight and she raised many of them during the Depression. She knew hard work but I always heard singing while she worked and I've heard so many people speak about her humor and her joy of life. She has been gone for many years but she truly is my role model!
