Kindle Fire Christmas Giveaway

Today I’m writing to ask a favor and offer a great opportunity to win a Kindle Fire in my Kindle Fire Christmas Giveaway!

It’s about my book, Land of My Dreams

If you own it or have read it, will you take the time to head over to Amazon and leave me a review?

(Either scroll to the bottom of the reviews and click the button that says “Write a customer review” or go to your orders screen, find Land of My Dreams, and click the button that says “Leave a product review.”)

Brief is fine!

Just be honest and share what you thought about the book or why you would recommend it to someone else.

Why? I love to read the reviews for one thing. But also, the more reviews a book has, the better its rankings on Amazon and also the more likely other people will be to buy the book or seek it out through their library.

Christian Fiction Changes Lives

My 92 year-old mother-in-law passed away earlier this year. In the last years of her life, two of her greatest joys were attending church with us and reading Christian fiction. I saw Christian fiction have a major impact on her life. This Mother’s Day, in her honor, I will be giving away a Land of My Dreams Mother’s Day Gift Basket. It includes a copy of Land of My Dreams autographed to the person of your choice, a book mark, a book of Favourite Scottish Tea Recipes, a small teapot, a tin of tea from the Edinburgh Tea Company, some Scottish shortbread cookies, and some Scottish strawberry jam. Leave a comment and sign in to the Rafflecopter at the bottom to find out how to enter!

Change of Plans

Posted by on Apr 16, 2012 | 0 comments

“Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and He will establish your plans.” Proverbs 16:3
            The tiny bundle placed in my arms was warm and sweet, the answer to years of prayers, heartache, and uncertainty. My husband and I stood in the chapel and the adoption agency with tears of joy in our eyes as we looked at our son. The day of delayed flights and rushing through airports was a microcosm of the turmoil of tests, surgeries and years of waiting.
            Four long years of hoping for a child were over, culminating in the joy of a three-week-old baby boy, wide awake and somehow aware that his world was changing forever. He looked around, taking everything in. A sensitive, reflective child, he has always had a tender heart and gentle spirit.
            Twenty-one months later a phone call during the Super Bowl brought us a baby girl who has never ceased to bring excitement into our lives. Arriving two years earlier than we thought possible, becoming an amazing athlete and never slowing down once, she never fails to surprise us.
            My husband and I had often talked about adoption when we were dating. We were products of the “zero-population” generation. We talked about having two children and then adopting two more. God’s plans didn’t include the biological children. He had something so much more special, a plan to show us His loving control over our circumstances, while accomplishing His perfect purposes.
            As friends had two or even three children in the time it took us to have one, we learned that God’s plan is unique for each of us, but always meant to make us fall on our knees and acknowledge His loving sovereignty.
            Perhaps you have seen your dreams all turn to dust and your hopes fall to the ground, nothing growing to fruition, nothing turning out the way you planned. You may carry the scars from battling disappointment and confusion about where God is leading you. It may seem He doesn’t care and has turned a deaf ear to your prayers.
            When doubt and disappointment seem to follow you everywhere you turn, turn to Jesus and lay your hopes and dreams at His feet. Commit to serve Him no matter where He is leading and He will establish a way for you that is far higher and better than anything you ever imagined.
