As you can see, my good friend, Sirus here (one of the characters in my book), is quite happy to announce the winner of a signed copy of my book. Congratulations to Kirk Kraft from the state of Washington! The book is on its way.

I’d like to thank everyone who entered to win a copy of my book, and for those of you who stopped by my book launch page and signed my guest book. It’s not too late to stop by if you haven’t already. The book launch page will stay up until April. I hope to give away more prizes in the near future!

News:    I officially began the 2nd book in my Golden Heart series. My main character has a big problem when he discovers there’s another heart that he must find before the Syzygy begins. But someone close to him has disappeared, and he was counting on this person for help. Will he lose hope before it’s too late? Will he discover this person in time?

More news:    I’m also working on another project for Young Adult/Adult readers. When the idea presented itself to me, the first chapter practically wrote itself. I’m excited about it, and I think you will be, too. As I get farther along, I’ll keep you updated on its progress!

It’s the Christmas season, and I’d like to say that whatever we do in life, and whatever road life takes us down, may we always be big enough to be humble enough to know that any talent we have is because of the God who gives it. “But for the grace of God, go I.” Things don’t always turn out the way we plan, but it’s during such times as these when we can reflect and realize that these times build character in our lives if we can keep HOPE and not give up.

May you have a wonderful Christmas with lots of blessings! I’m thankful for family and friends. You are what makes this sometimes mundane world go round, and who bring a bit of joy into our lives. It’s a blessing to know that there are no strangers here! It’s a place I invite you to come for lasting friendships.

The Truth of the Matter . . .

 . . . Children are so full of wonder and curiosity, yet they look to us for survival: to meet their every need. They depend on us to show them truth in a world where truth is sometimes hard to find. They look to us to show them that life is worth living, that they can grow up and become all they are meant to be. Their hearts beg being seen by us, and their voices beg being heard through all the noise.

Do we love them for who they are~right where they are? How many times do we look them in the eye, and say, “You matter to me because . . . “

They love us unconditionally. Should we not love them the same? Do we show them that no matter how many times they mess up, we still love them?

Sometimes we can learn from them . . . “out of the mouths of babes.”
