Happy Memorial Day Week, Everyone!

Today is the day we honor all those heroes who have gone before us to secure our freedom, and my heart is full with gratitude for their sacrifice and service.

I felt today’s header Scripture was most appropriate, not only for the sacrifice that our veterans have made, but for the sacrifice that God’s Son made for us as well. Our veterans gave their all to keep us free, but our Savior gave His all to SET us free! Because He laid down his life for all of us, not only to set us free spiritually, but mentally, emotionally, and physically as well.

This is a lesson that Jake Sullivan—the hero in my upcoming novel, Love’s Silver Bullet—has to learn the hard way, AND a lesson I hope blesses you as much as it has me.

I’m very excited to say that not only does Love’s Silver Bullet — Book 2 in the Silver Lining Ranch Series — release on MAY 31st, but my AMAZINGLY talented hubby made a wonderful video/trailer for Love’s Silver Bullet as well, so check out the video/trailer link below and how you can win a signed paperback copy, $25 Amazon gift card, and a character named after you or a loved one in my next book.

So, if you haven’t pre-ordered Love’s Silver Bullet yet, you have till MAY 31 to get a PRE-ORDER DISCOUNT, so don’t pay more than you have to, okay?
