She’s lost her faith.

He’ll help her find it.

Along with a love that endures.


The story you’ve been waiting for is almost here …

Yes, it’s true, I am more than 3/4 of the way through writing book 3 in my Isle of Hope contemporary series, His Steadfast Love, which has been SO fun to write! And, I hope, SO fun for you to read when it releases this summer.

And it’s even more fun for me now because I finally have a cover! I can’t tell you HOW much I enjoy designing my own covers because I hope they help convey a hint of the story inside, but you be the judge.

The blurb for His Steadfast Love is:


A bold and independent woman challenges the ideals—

and the morals—of a pastor who loves her

no matter the mistakes that she makes.


Obviously what I tried to do with this cover is show how Chase holds on to Cat via friendship, becoming her lifeline until she can finally return to her “first love”Christin order to win her second—Chase!

Please continue praying for God’s anointing on this book if you will, because I hope it will have a very special message that I myself have learned over the last year.


Update on Genevieve!

Keith and I had SO much fun visiting my son, daughter-in-law, and my three grands last week, so I wanted to share some highlights with you.

Genevieve, who we were calling Evie, has now be redubbed “Genebebe” by her three-year-old brother, so it looks like new nicknames are in play. Whether Gen, Evie, or Genbebe, she is a true sweetheart!

Gen is now over six months old and one of the most gentle babies I have ever seen. She is a totally normal little girl with a perfect heart today because of YOUR prayers, so thank you again!

LOVE my grands!! Had SO much fun playing paper dolls, Memory Game, Play-Doh, frisbee, swinging statue, tennis, and super heroes! PLUS a bonus visit with dear friends Mary Connealy, Sharee Stover, and Steph Ludwig!
