We have had a big increase in subscribers lately! We just passed 733 subscribers! Time for a celebration! We have had 500 new people since the first of 2013. This is wonderful for our site. I wonder if we can make it to 800 by January 1, 2014? Only 67 to go. We only have 9 days left to make it! You can make that happen. Please help us to continue to grow by also subscribing.

Exciting news! We have a new book on the way that I am writing with Dennis Booth, from New South Wales, Australia. It will be called, “Signs of Hope: For the Weak Days.” (Working Title.) It is a compiling of posts that Dennis and I have been doing on my blog at: www.dailysignsofhope.com. There are 0ver 54,000 followers on that site, and it is because so many people are seeking hope and it is provided there.
*Update: 12-22-13. I have have over one half of my share of the book done. We still don’t have a publishing date yet, but stay tuned to see what is happening. I will try to have an update often.
I am finding more time to write on this site lately. It could be because God is telling me I need to spend ore time with you here.
This Site will have two functions:
- Share with you what the latest news is on my writing, and new books that are coming out.
- Write words of hope at the end of each of my post that you can cling to help you through those cloudy and stormy days.
Only three more days until Christmas. I had a wonderful day today. My granddaughter turned eighteen today. It is now past the shortest day of the year, and we can look towards longer days and summer. I also bought the last of my Christmas presents today. A perfect storm for what I needed.
Are you caught up in the rush of Christmas? Have you forgotten what the true meaning of Christmas is? It is the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ, and it is the time of giving.
When I was out shopping today, there were tons of cars trying to find that one parking spot. God was good to me, because as I turned one corner in the lot there was a lady ready to pull out. It was right next to the entrance to the store I wanted to go in.
I am always thinking of buying books for people. I did that again today. I know that it can be a lasting present, and the enjoyment goes on for a long time.
Books may be moving to different forms like digital, or in tablets, but for me the hard copy is the true way to read a book. I do have a Kindle, and I have many books on it, but my shelves are full of books that I bought, and acquired an autograph from the author that wrote the book. That is one of the benefits of being an author. We look out for each other.
Books can transport you to another world. They can give you visions of beauty. They can scare you out of your wits. The unknown is lurking on that next page.
Think about buying a book for someone today. They will enjoy it , and you will know that they have gotten something they will remember you by every time they see the book.
You are never alone.
You are never forsaken.
You are never unloved.
And above all…never, ever, give up!
