I believe God intends us to experience more of His love, joy, and peace in our lives!
So many of us have been Christians for years, yet we don’t live the full abundant lives God longs to give us. I don’t think I’m the only one!
My life is good, but far from perfect. Just like your life probably is, too. I’m a long way from living my life “content in all circumstances”!
I struggle with difficult relationships, with letting go of past hurts, with health issues, with personal and professional failures, with finances, with walking more closely with God, with loving those around me as well as I’d like. I want to know more of the love, peace, and joy God intends for us, and I get wonderful glimpses of this. But too often I slip back into doubt; into fear; into trying to do things my way, not His.
In my devotional and inspirational non-fiction books, I focus on ways we can walk more closely with Jesus and overcome any blocks to us living the full and abundant life He designed for us. I’m in the same process we all are of learning how to live the life God wants me to live. A life filled with “the peace that passes understanding”!
Over the coming years, I’ll be learning to focus more on God, on love, on peace, on living my life the way He wants me to live. I hope you’ll share the journey with me, as I write monthly (sometimes less often!) emails sharing what I learn. If you’d like to subscribe to my special devotional only mailing list to receive new devotional posts straight into your email inbox, you can sign-up for it here.
You can unsubscribe at any time. Though I’ll share my new book releases and occasional special offers with you, I won’t ever hard sell; and your personal information will be kept safe and secure.
I also blog on devotional and inspirational topics. You can see those posts here.
I’m hoping to soon write more frequent devotional blogs, plus release one new devotional book every year, in ebook and paperback, with bonus free content for subscribers.
Be Blessed: A Bible-based gratitude & prayer journal
First in a series of Bible-based journals designed to help us surrender our difficulties and to know His peace through shifting to an attitude of thankfulness and praise. This journal centers on knowing and feeling God’s blessings, trusting Him more, and growing in faith. Each complete journal entry is four pages, with a large-format Bible verse for inspiration, and big pages with plenty of room for you to journal, color, doodle or customize the pages in other creative ways.
I hope Be Blessed and the process of gratitude journaling are a huge blessing to you!
Be Still & Know – a 2023 paperback planner/journal!
If you like journaling and keeping a physical record of what’s happening in your life (I do!), you may want to look at my new 2023 paperback journal/planner, Be Still & Know.
Beautifully decorated in black and white, it has a section for each month, with pages for setting your hopes for the month, considering where God is leading you, a week-to-two-pages daily notes section, and pages at the end of each month to pause and consider how the month went.
Unfortunately Amazon’s Look Inside feature isn’t working for this book, and so you can’t have a peek inside it. But here’s a montage of a few pages to give an idea.
The planner would make a lovely gift, too.
Lessons from Pollyanna: Living with joy!
First in a devotional series based on classic novels, with accompanying print journals. If all you know of Pollyanna is the Disney film version or reading the book as a child, you may find reading it as an adult surprising. Pollyanna has so much to teach us about living a meaningful Christ-like life, growing spiritually, and experiencing deeper joy, the joy God created us to hold fast to and cherish.
