Christmas: Simple Beginnings

One week from today, we’ll gather with family, friends, or neighbors to celebrate Christmas with merry decorations, gift-gifting, and a festive feast.

As I reflect upon God’s provision of a Christmas baby, who would grow to become our Easter Savior, I find myself contemplating the simplicity of His plan. Not an easy plan, but a modest one.

Jesus would come to earth as both God and man to simple folk: a teenager and a carpenter. Not to be birthed in a pristine palace, but on a gritty road trip instead. (more…)

Devotional Books for Girls

Real Girls Devo Banner

Long before I saw my first historical novel published, I was writing children’s books. As we end one year and begin another, I have exciting announcements to make about two devotional books for girls. (more…)

A Devotional Book for Girls

Real Girls 31 Day

Before I began writing historical novels–The Sinclair Sisters of Cripple Creek–for WaterBrook Press, I was writing children’s books for Zonderkidz.

A FaithGirlz Devotional

Featuring thirty-one women from both the Old and New Testaments—including Esther, Leah, Rhoda, Mary, Sarah, Ruth, Martha, Anna, and Elizabeth—each devotional centers around the woman’s faith-journey and includes a scripture verse, prayer, suggestions for further reading, and even an item called Body Talk intended to promote a godly self-image.

The text is sprinkled with Fun Facts (Miriam led the singing of the first song of worship ever recorded in Scripture!). In every story, girls see God’s holy character and glimpse their own potential in relationship with Him.

What Readers Have Said

“Real Girls of the Bible (A Devotioanl) is a HIT! I would love more of your books!” Samantha, Age 10, from Canada

“I am the children’s director at our church. We started using Real Girls of the Bible in our Girls Tween class in January. The girls are taking two of the Girls in the Bible a week and each girl “teaches” on this particular Girl in the Bible. I have talked to many of the moms who have said they do not have to remind the girls to do their study They are doing it on their own! Praise God they are developing ownership of their walk with Jesus! Thanks for writing this book. I have also enjoyed going through it and gleaning from it!” Jennifer

“We used REAL GIRLS OF THE BIBLE as our devotional presentation this week. The oldest girl in the group, age 16, gave the devotions and did a nice job.” Diana, Girls Club Leader 

While I wrote Real Girls of the Bible with girls ages 8 to 12 in mind, I’ve heard from both younger and older girls who enjoyed it, and from adult women who used Real GIrls of the Bible in their personal Bible study time.

Yes, Real Girls of the Bible: A 31-Day Devotional is also available as an eBook.

As you consider gifts for your children and grandchildren, nieces and nephews, your neighbor children and the children in your church, please take a look at my children’s books.
