A Great Read: Love’s Enduring Gift

Loves Enduring Gift

I am really excited about this: a very dear friend of mine, Catherine Francis, just published her first book, called Love’s Enduring Gift! I’ve had the privilege to help edit the book and I am proud of all the hard work that Catherine put into the book.

So what’s the book about? It is a love-inspired novel focused around two people, Lynn and Scott. Here’s a snippet from Catherine’s website:

The story is about two young people, Lynn and Scott, and how their separate lives came together one sunny morning.  Scott stood and stretched, tired from work… Lynn took the walking path at their work to stretch her legs and continue reading her book.

From his window he saw her walking and decided to investigate the lovely sight that caught his eye.  Oblivious to the attention, Lynn continued her walk until a stranger in her path interrupted her reading.  It’s with this simple beginning that God took and fashioned these two into a relationship that would grow over time and blossom into something beyond their wildest dreams.

I know I am a little biased, but I loved the book and I think you will too. 🙂 I can’t tell you how many times I would forget to edit the book because I would get lost in the story, so I would have to go back and re-read for errors!

You can get the book on Amazon here.

7 Quick Takes: Random Edition

Normally, I like to do “themed” 7 Quick takes. My brain naturally works in an organized, systematic  manner and I like focusing on one topic at a time. But this week, I couldn’t come up with a theme so I figured I’d give a whirl at being random. 🙂

I’ve started my third online college course en route to getting my bachelors degree in English. This semester it’s chemistry. I found out that I have to take some general education courses that I didn’t take the first time I was in college. 🙁 I”m not thrilled that I have to take general courses, but it is what it is.

And can I just say that I’m only a week into the course and it is HARD and a lot of work. I’ve never had a mathematical or science-y mind, so I was expecting it to be a challenge and this course is proving to live up to that expectation and more!

Speaking of chemistry, if you have a simple way of explaining how to balance chemical equations let me know!

The Lord has been putting this scripture in the forefront of my mind and heart. First I read it in the bible, then a friend called and shared the scripture with me, and then put it before me again yesterday. Its 1 Peter 1:6-8:

“In this you rejoice, although now for a little while you may have to suffer through various trials,so that the genuineness of your faith, more precious than gold that is perishable even though tested by fire, may prove to be for praise, glory, and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.Although you have not seen him you love him; even though you do not see him now yet believe in him, you rejoice with an indescribable and glorious joy.”

Yesterday I finished MONTHS of helping a friend edit her début love-inspired novel. Woot! It was a lot of work but very rewarding and I’m just as excited as the author for the book to come out! She is self-publishing the book and in the next step I’ll be helping her format the e-book for Amazon.

That’s it for this random edition of 7QT. 🙂 Have a great weekend everyone!
