“Moses my servant is dead. Now then you…” Joshua 1:2

What has come to an end in your life?

I’m reading through the book of Joshua and was struck by God’s statement. Moses was dead. For Joshua, this meant not only the end of the familiar, it meant the beginning of a new path.

The same is true for you…

Last month I joined my two sisters on a week’s cruise from England to Norway. We hadn’t spent that much time together for nearly 20 years. Naturally, we talked about our parents, our upbringing, and how differently our lives had turned out.



Easter: Jesus Lives in You!

Before I became a believer in Jesus, Easter meant devouring as much of a Cadbury’s chocolate Easter bunny as I could before my mother took it away!

Our English Easter bunnies were not the hollow types that you find here in America, they were filled with little chocolates. Talk about a yummy sugar high!

But Easter is more than chocolate…

WELCOME!! I'm SO EXCITED YOU ARE HERE!!! CONTEST LINKS LIVE 19th - 21st. You can enter to win copies of the books on the front page! Enter them all - Interact with the authors!! It's so much fun!

2012 is going to be a great BOOK FUN YEAR!! We are going to have more book giveaways, you’ll get to know more authors. Bethany house and B & H have some great featured authors this year and so does the group here called CAN (Christian Authors Network)

Check out the Book Club Pages. We have review sites, Book stores have put up pages, some of them are in the process of starting a book club, it just might be in your area. This is not a site you need to be on every day, but just check out parts of it when you can.

I LOVE Book club. I’m passionate about getting the word out about Christian authors and their books to book clubs. I think this could be a great for them to meet for each to learn from the other; authors from book clubs and book clubs from authors, I’ve seen that so far. It’s been fun to watch. We’ll see where the Lord leads us in 2012. We have many exciting opportunities lined up just for you. Book Clubs are about relationships with each other and with authors. It’s a win win!

Blessings to you
