My heart is pumping wildly with excitement! My editor just informed me that The Jewel of His Heart is #19 on the CBA bestseller list for July as published in CBA Christian Retailers and Resources! It's incredible to be listed there with many of my favorite authors. Wow! this brings tears of joy to my eyes.
As an author you're always concerned about making each book better than the previous one. As I'm nearing the deadline for Deeply Devoted, my prayer everyday is to not only entertain readers, but encourage them with whatever life throws their way. One thing I'm learning in my walk is that I'm not in control of all that befalls me. It's how I react to it more than anything. Hurts, grief in many forms, illnesses, etc. happen to all of us. But we can choose to face every situation knowing that God has got our back and will see us through even in the lowest point. I choose to take it one day at the time, and that's life. It's all I can do. What about you?
