   Elizabeth's first novel!!!

Jonathan Phelps believes it's an ordinary Sunday as he deals with the discouraging process of doing "church" one more time. 

What he doesn't know is the warrior JaKobe has arrived on assignment from God and his Sundays will never be the same again!

Join the adventure as quirky characters from the small town of Thyme mix with angelic forces bent on both protecting their charges and changing their life. Prayer request can sometimes be a dangerous things. Especially, when heaven is serious about the answer!  

Also new:

Kay Arthur: “Shake the dust from your past, and move forward in His promises.”

Elisabeth Elliott: "Let's never forget that some of God's greatest mercies are His refusals.”

Amy Carmichael: “If stupid people fret me and little ruffles set me on edge; I know nothing of Calvary love.”

Gloria Gather  “If we just give God the little that we have, we can trust Him to make it go around.”

Beth Moore: “Sometimes the hardest biblical truths to accept are [the ones] about ourselves.”

Cathrine Marshal: "If your every human plan and calculation has miscarried--if, one by one, human props have been knocked out--take heart! God is trying to get a message through to you, and the message is: 'Stop depending on inadequate human resources. Let me handle the matter.'"

Corrie ten Boom: "Worry is carrying tomorrow's load with today's strength--carrying two days at once. It is moving into tomorrow ahead of time. Worrying doesn't empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength."

            ...Through a Workday

Blogging about my day as a writer and giving the world a picture tour of my days may have a fringe benefit. It might convince certain people (aka, my sons) that I do actually work.

Is there another profession where can you be your own boss, spend most of your hours relaxing in a chair, break whenever the mood strikes and still complain about working too much?

     When you call yourself a writer, it’s only natural for skepticism to abound. After all, you don’t punch a time clock and you don’t draw a regular paycheck.

When Peter wrote his first letter to the fledgling churches, the situation looked pretty dark. They had been waiting thirty-five long, hard years for Jesus to return as He promised. Yet every day they searched the sky and every day life on earth continued to grow worse.

Under the heel of the Roman government, the tax rate for working people was 50 percent of income or higher. Corruption, bribes, and kickbacks were a part of daily life. Everyone from the priest to the local tax agent had their hand out for a share. The sex trade flourished for both males and females. Children and adults were bought, sold, used, and there were no laws against it. There was violence in the streets; political and religious intrigue on every corner, and death and disease inside the homes. Over one-fourth of all children died before the age of two and life expectancy for the average person was 50-55 years.
Do you ever feel forgotten? Perhaps it is personally forgotten as a mate ignores your needs while seeking their own pleasure. Perhaps it is socially forgotten as the culture changes and your values are regarded as archaic or irrelevant. You may even feel spiritually forgotten as God seems distant or even uncaring. There are few emotions more painful than feeling disregarded, alone, put aside. Forgotten.
