Update For The Last Month - Weight Loss, Organizing and Writing.

Well February hit with a bang, a combination of snow/ice kept this Southern family unable to drive anywhere on several different occasions during the month. The dreariness of the months of January and February are not the most motivational scenes to get me up and exercising. But, I did get one workout a week in for the past four weeks. Also, I managed to clean out and organize my coffee table and end tables. I managed also to work on my novella, The Christmas Diary, for a few weekends during the month.

Now for the worst part, my weight update. I have lost (drumroll please) 5 lbs. Yes, a whopping five pound weight loss. Don't get me wrong, I am thankful. I know it takes time, and truthfully, I really didn't start the diet part till the second week of February. The weight loss did encourage me to kept going, so that I will.  So that is my update for now. I hope by the end of March I will be able to report more progress in this slow evolution of losing weight.

MY JOURNEY AND GOALS FOR 2014

I have never been one to have New Year Resolutions, but this year I have decided to make three important resolutions for myself.

After years of "going to lose weight," I have decided to finally dedicate myself to the goal of losing weight. I have read that it takes three weeks of doing something before it becomes a habit. So I will do my best over the next three weeks to exercise and watch what I eat. With that said, goal number one, lose weight. I plan to post monthly progress updates.

My next goal is to hopefully have another novella published that I am currently working on for the next Christmas season.  And as an added bonus, I plan to make time to have some book signings also during the holidays.

The next and finally goal is to organize every drawer and closet that I have in my house.

So if you are in for a weight loss journey and organizational skills put to the test, be sure to check back monthly for my progress updates.

Two new ebook releases for the Christmas Season - A Christmas Gift For Mary Jones and Christmas Blessings.  
Mary Jones is recently widowed and lonely…very lonely. Although the people of the small town of River Oak, Tennessee, call her Grandmother Jones with much affection, Mary yearns for the family she was never blessed with. 

When a stranger named Teresa appears on her doorstep with her four-year-old child, claiming to be the daughter of her deceased husband, Mary’s world is forever changed. 

Even though Mary suspects Teresa is hiding a terrible secret, she takes her newfound stepdaughter underwing, determined to help her. Soon, the young woman garners the attention of Tom, the single and very handsome sheriff of the town, and Mary can’t help but play matchmaker. 

When Teresa’s daughter is kidnapped by her dangerous ex-husband, Mary and Teresa are forced to rely on the young sheriff, each other, and more importantly, God. Will Teresa’s daughter be rescued? Will Mary receive a special Christmas gift this year—the one thing she has always wanted in her life? 

A Christmas Gift for Mary Jones is an inspirational story of faith, family, and love. 



Christmas Blessings available in print. Contains former #1 Amazon Best Selling in Short Story - The Christmas Answer.



For the true magic of Christmas cannot be found in a wrapped gift under the tree... 

Three touching stories of Christmas blessings to warm the heart, including: 

Three Gifts 

On Christmas morning, Jack receives three precious gifts of the heart, three gifts that open his eyes to the tender grace of true love. 

The Christmas Answer 

When Donna volunteers on a mission trip, she is forced to reexamine her life, her marriage, and most importantly, her faith. Donna soon discovers the one thing she had been missing all her life. 

A Sharecropper Christmas 

The Great Depression left the Shoemaker family hungry and homeless. Alice makes the best of the hard times without complaint, 
though she dreams of giving her little family a special Christmas. 

Note: The Christmas stories contained in this anthology are each published separately as novellas. We are offering them as a bundle book for readers who would like a deal on all three, or to have them in print.

The Season Is Changing

Welcome Autumn as red, orange, and gold colors creep slowly along the trees alerting us to the changes that are ahead of us. Pumpkins will be decorated by families and lit to show little ghosts and goblins the way to candy delights. Mums will bring beauty to our porches. While the leaves crunch under our feet as we walk in the boots that we wear for fashion as well as warmth.
Sweaters will be brought out of storage. Quilts will be placed on beds, the season is changing and I love it.
