From discord, find harmony.
In the middle of difficulty, lies opportunity."
~Albert Einstein, theoretical physicist
This is a quote from a book I'm currently reading, ONE B1G THING: Discovering what you were born to do, which I'm thoroughly enjoying. The cover caught my attention first, then one of my publicists recommended it. And I'm so glad she did.
I love a book that challenges me to take inventory of my life, which is good to do from time to time. As the back cover says, "If you've ever felt pulled in different directions or wondered what to do with your varied talents and interests, Phil Cooke will teach you the secrets of living a life-on-purpose that rises above the noise and leaves a lasting mark on the world." Highly recommended!
This morning I'm having fun with my editor, Karen, from Bethany House who's in town! We're meeting to chat and brainstorm. I'm currently writing book 2 in the Belmont series (title forthcoming), and I love the brainstorming process. Karen's so talented too. I'm grateful to have her on my team. She and I met for lunch yesterday with our husbands…

Would you please keep Jeff in your prayers? August 2nd marks two years since he was diagnosed with cancer (colorectal, live and lung). He has a PET scan coming up soon, and we're praying that ALL the cancer is gone! Would you please join us in that request? (And don't they both look great!)

What good books (fiction or non-fiction) have you read lately? I'd love to know. And if you happen to be looking for ideas on which historical series to read next, check this out. I asked a question on my Facebook page and am getting some fantastic responses!
P.S. A little over two months until To Whisper Her Name is released. Hard to believe after all those months of writing, it's almost ready!
