MARCH 20th

BOOK BLURB: Samara lives a life filled with fear. After being discarded and beaten by her drug dealing boyfriend, she takes one easy out after another. Her choices lead her down the road of self-destruction, into the degrading world of stripping and a life spent looking over her shoulder. Until an encounter with a stranger on a Kings Cross Street provides the catalyst for a life changing event that leads her back home. She is forced to face the mess she left behind, the disappointment of her father, and the memories of the man who broke her heart. What will she do when danger follows her to paradise? From the bright lights of Sydney to the blue waters of Resolution Island, Beyond Resolution is a story that provides a window into the joy of forgiveness, trust and peace.

ABOUT AUTHOR: Rose Dee, who holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree, was born in North Queensland, Australia. Her childhood experiences growing up in a small beach community would later provide inspiration for her first novel, Back to Resolution. Beyond Resolution and A New Resolution are the second and third books in the Resolution series. 

Back to Resolution won the Bookseller’s Choice award at the 2012 CALEB Awards, while A New Resolution won the 2013 CALEB Prize for Fiction. She has also released The Greenfield Legacy, a collaborative novel, written in conjunction with three other outstanding Australian authors, and has recently released the standalone novel, Ehvah After. 

Her novels are inspired by the love of her coastal home and desire to produce exciting and contemporary stories of faith for women. Rose resides in Mackay, North Queensland with her husband and son.

!. When I am anxious or fearful I start reciting the attributes of God. My God can move mountains, etc. It may take a bit, but it really helps. It puts my thoughts where they should be.

That is a good thing to remember Victoria! Thanks for sharing!

What a wonderful way, Victoria. If you don't mind, I might do that myself. Thank you for sharing. xo Rose. 

I can do all things through Christ who gives me my strength.

i love the song I learned as a child and now I sing it to my grandkids: Happiness is the Lord.

Happiness is to know the Saviour,
Living a life within His favour,
Having a change in my behaviour,
Happiness is the Lord.
Happiness is a new creation,
Jesus and me in close relation,
Having a part in His salvation,
Happiness is the Lord.

Real joy is mine,
No matter if the teardrops start,
I've found a secret,
It's Jesus in my heart.

Thanks for sharing this Gail!

I don't know that song, Gail, but I love the lyrics. Isn't it amazing how we recall those childhood songs and old hymns? I was walking along the beach last week and I just found myself singing a song my Dad would sing all the time. As my Dad passed some years ago, it was a lovely reminder of him. 

This song of yours would certainly put my anxious heart at ease.  Thank you for sharing with us.

xo Rose. 

When I am fearful, I stop and pray. It usually helps to calm my spirit and remind me that I am never alone. 

It is a comfort Cathy!

I do that too, Cathy. Although sometimes I pray 'on the go', in the car, in the office, while making dinner. Every time I think it may not be the 'place' I remember that call to 'pray without ceasing'. There are times in life where you just know you have to. 

Thank you for sharing with us. 

xoxo Rose.

I've been out in some rough oceans, Deana and most of those times I was in very small boats. That song sounds like one I could have used many, many times. And I have no doubt that it makes a big difference in those storms of life. I'm going to look up that song. 

Thank you for sharing with us. 

xoxo Rose. 

I have found the best way to deal with fear/anxiety is to ask Jesus to help me.  If you ask, you will feal His peace flood your soul.  And not only that, whatever the issue is - He will help you by showing you the path you should take to take care of whatever is bothering you!
