Hello Inspy Friends! How is the new year treating you? I hope it’s been a great start for each and every one of you. For me, it’s been a very busy one! (which I’m loving) For one, I’ve started my new year out with a new Bible. It’s called, Mornings with Jesus Daily Bible. It’s arranged the Bible into 365 portions to help you read through the entire Bible in one year. It’s filled with encouraging words from women who shares their personal reflections, prayers, and faith steps that will help you experience a deeper relationship with Jesus.
My husband and I have began a new ministry, too. Our very first service in our new church was November 20, 2016. It has taken us a few weeks to get the ministry established. But now, we have hit the ground running :-) We are all so excited to see what God has in store for our ministry in 2017!
I’ve also been busy working on my next novella. I can’t share too much right now, but I can say, there’s a runaway bride, a handsome stranger, and the beach :-) Hopefully, it will be released very soon.
Here’s another also, (I told you it’s been a busy year so far) I have some exciting news to share with all of you about my American State Flower story, Camellia’s Smile. IT IS THE SAME STORY, but it has a new look :-)
Here’s the new cover for Camellia’s Smile. I absolutely love it. Tell me, what do you think? Doesn’t it look more romantic?
When Camellia Stewart’s grandfather has a heart attack, she returns to Midvale, Alabama to help her grandparents on their farm until her grandfather is back on his feet. The morning after her return, she confronts Brody Tarvin, her grandparent’s new neighbor, with a shotgun.
Even though the neighbor’s granddaughter threatened to shoot him, Brody can’t stop thinking about her. After hearing about her grandfather’s heart attack, he decides to lend Camellia a hand on her grandparent’s farm. He finds himself falling for the woman with the beautiful smile until he discovers she has a boyfriend back home in Birmingham.
Can Brody win her heart and convince her to stay in Midvale, or will she go back to the big city and leave him behind?
