It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas!

It’s finally here. With Thanksgiving over we are now officially in the Christmas season.

And when I think about Christmas, I find myself thinking about Christmas decorations.

So today, I though I’d share some of my favorite craft ideas for this Christmas season. I plan to try each of them.

I love this idea because it seems easy enough and you can add lights to it, giving it a special look.

Not sure if I can pull this one off or not. But I’m looking forward to trying it.
This is one of my favorites from last year. The melting snowman. I think it would be fun to make with the granddaughters.
And this sign that pretty much defines the meaning of Christmas for me.
So what about you? What’s your favorite way to decorate for Christmas?

This Christmas, I have two new romances out.Love’s Sweet Homecoming, which is out now, is my First Street Church series novella set in the fictional town of Sweet Grove, Texas.



Donovan Henderson is finally coming home to Sweet Grove, Texas. Yet it is not to the sweet homecoming he’d once envisioned because he is not the same man he was before he left for the war in Afghanistan. After surviving an IED attack that ended his career with the marines, Donovan feels like half a man. Can this wounded warrior find his place in Sweet Grove once more? And will Donovan accept the love that has been standing right before him all along.

Ava Richards lost her husband to the same war that took Donovan’s leg. Even after two years, Ava is still crippled by the loss. Unable to move forward with her life, she is stuck in the past. Yet the more time she spends with her husband’s best friend, Donovan Henderson, the more Ava longs for a second chance at life…and love.

Can Ava convince Donovan that he doesn’t have to leave Sweet Grove to rebuild his life? And is it possible for two wounded souls to help each other learn what true love really means again?



And on December 1st, Christmas In Delaney Mountain, my Christmas Romantic Suspense novella, comes out through White Rose Publishing, book two of the Delaney Mountain Series.


Kara Edwards has been looking over her shoulder for years. After being kidnapped and held hostage by a man who claimed to be her late husband’s friend, she’s no longer in the trusting business. She moves to Delaney Mountain with one expectation: to outrun her stalker. Never does she expect to meet a man like David Delaney—one who not only makes her want to trust again, but to love again, too. David Delaney is drawn to Kara from the first moment he meets her. There’s an attractive strength behind her no-nonsense caution and independence. He knows Kara is running from something, but nothing prepares him for what she has to say. When Eli Redford escapes from prison, Kara and David find themselves on one side of a Christmas Eve showdown that brings everything to a deadly head.

All the best…

    We always buy our children an ornament that they get to open the night we decorate the tree. It’s not a specific decoration but more a decorating tradition. By the way, I️ saw your book in the Facebook party last night. It looks really good. I’m going to have to add it to my list of books to read!
