“What you do

matters far less to God

than how you do it.”

— Anonymous

I am a Christian author. That’s what I do. But you know what? I’ve discovered that although this is a ministry given to me by God, that’s not the most important thing to Him. Nope. What’s important to Him is how I do that ministry. Am I going to rely on my own efforts and talent? Or am I going to rely on Him?

I decided I want to rely on Him, so as most of you know who read this blog, I am stepping back from most promotion to focus on writing for a season. But … it seems the moment I did that, promotion opportunities fell from the sky to literally drop in my lap. First one of my favorite Christian magazines asked me to be on the cover of their December issue with an interview inside, then one of my favorite bloggers asked me to be a part of her 10-year blogaversary, and finally one of my favorite authors  asked me to do a Flash Christmas giveaway with her on Facebook today. So, since giveaways are involved in two of these ventures, I thought I better tell you about them to win some free books!

Today Only!       (Friday, Nov. 4)

Head on over to my Facebook  page today to enter the dual giveaway of two signed Christmas books for two winners! All you have to do is leave a comment on my FB page and then click on the link there to my good buddy Denise Hunter’s Facebook page, too, and you’ll have TWO chances to win TWO signed Christmas books, both Denise’s wonderful novel, Falling Like Snowflakes, and my Irish Christmas love story, A Light in the Window. And if you already have A Light in the Window, then I’ll give you your choice of another of my books, okay? Here’s the link to my FB page (where you’ll also find Denise’s FB page link), so hope to see you there!

And … I invite anybody who’d like to see the cool video my artist hubby did for A Light in the Window using my daughter as the model to do so HERE.
