Are you in Missouri or know someone who lives there? I’m headed to Saint Charles, Missouri, next month for the Lewis & Clark Heritage Days and several Author Events, May 14-18. Join me at the setting for The Quilted Heart, also the launch city for The Boone’s Lick Wagon Train Company in Prairie Song.
Here’s my current itinerary:
Wednesday, May 14, 1:00-3:00 pm
The Frenchtown Heritage Museum; Quilt Show and Ladies Tea where I’ll talk about the appeal of quilting circles and the quilting connections that inspired The Quilted Heart novellas. (more…)
March is National Women’s History Month. Today, I’m celebrating the legacy of women in American History with a look at educator, Mary Easton Sibley. (more…)
In this final week of our Quilters and Quilts Series, celebrating the release of The Quilted Heart novellas, we’ve taken a turn and headed to Canada for a look at Barn Quilts with my reader-friend, Christina Turner.
“Barn quilts are painted quilt squares-usually fashioned on boards and then mounted on a barn or other building. While cloth quilts are usually made up of a series of squares of the same pattern placed together, a barn quilt is almost always a single square.” Suzi Parron, author of Barn Quilts and the American Quilt Trail Movement (more…)
In Dandelions on the Wind, Maren Jensen has immigrated to America, her heart full of plans to send for her family and give them a better life. When her failing eyesight narrows her own prospects for a new life, darkness begins to swallow her hope, along with her vision.
As Maren lifts a glowing match to the wick of an Advent candle to commemorate the coming of the Light of the world, she surrenders her darkness to God, looking to Jesus to be her Light.
“Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, ‘I am the light of the world:
he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.’”
John 8:12, KJV
In what ways has Jesus been Light in your life this past year?
