What Lies Ahead…

Never ending road to Death Valley California sunny desert

Even though it is mid-January and the New Year is underway, the rest of the year stretches out before us with endless possibilities.

As a grandmother, I can only imagine the possibilities of fun times ahead for me and my granddaughters.

As a Christian, I want to fill 2018 with God, drawing nearer to him each day, and trusting him with every mountain and valley that stretches out before me.

As a wife, I want to let my husband know how special he is to me every chance I can. Our time together has been amazing so far and I’m looking forward to what lies ahead for us as well.

As an author, my future holds several new releases for 2018 and hopefully many more possibilities to come.

As a human being, there are so many things I wish for in 2018. Peace, the cure for cancer. A child’s hurting to go away.

Most of these things I can control. I can spend more time with my grandchildren, tell my husband I love him every chance I get, stay focused on my writing more, and spend more time with God, drawing on His strength. And through prayer to Him, I can lift up those things that I would like to see changed and turn them over to Him.

So what about you? What lies ahead for you in 2018? What would you like to see changed this year?


Heart Of Texas Blurb:


Laney Winters gets the biggest shock of her life when she learns she’s pregnant…on the same day she finds her husband in bed with his secretary. With her blissful life exposed as fraud, and her husband wanting nothing to do with raising a child, Laney faces divorce and her greatest fear–moving back home to live with her two eccentric old-maid aunts. Hiding the demise of her marriage and helping to manage the family diner should be uneventful, but a new man in town has the gossips speculating. Laney’s two aunts create an exciting mystery around the stranger, and Laney is sucked into an entertaining game of “Save Jake Montgomery from Aunt Thelma.” When her aunts’ latest victim turns out to be the town’s new family doctor, Laney must entrust him with her secrets, and along the way, discover that when your life flips upside down it’s God’s way of giving you a different perspective…and a fresh start.
