Trusting
In The Father’s Love
is the story of my life. I like to say if you love a good
love story, then my book delivers it all. There is intrigue, danger, opposition
and in the end the girl comes to a place where she cannot live without the love
of her life. This book will make you laugh, cry and give thanks.
Excerpt:
I was the product of
a twenty-nine- year old young woman, already a single mother of three children
and a twenty-nine year old young man who had no children but was married and
separated from his wife. They had no plans to wed and so there my mother was
living with my grandmother, her mother. My mother was told by her mother that
she could not bring any more children into her home. I would find all this out
much later in adulthood. The decision was made to give me up for adoption. The
rejection starts.
What
inspired you to write this book?
My
inspiration comes from many sources, but my main source is God, Himself. The
way He loves me, inspires me to want to share my story with others. Because I
had come through such difficult times in my own life, I believed and still
believe that the sharing of my testimony, openly and honestly, will allow
others to do the same.
What
exciting story are you working on next?
My
next book in the making is a 31-day devotional workbook. I believe that if each
person would just spend a little time with Jesus each day, the way they tackle
the duties of the day will be different because they will be different. My book
will not only have scripture but the reader will have to apply it to their
life.
When
did you first consider yourself a writer?
When
I had my first article published in high school. It was so full-filling to see
my name on the article and know that others would be reading it. Many years
later, I still get that same feeling.
Do
you write full-time? If so, what’s your work day like? If not, what do you do
other than write and how do you find time to write?
Presently,
I do not write full-time. I am a wife, mother, grandmother, leader, mentor,
counselor, business woman, sister, daughter, and full time nursing instructor. Wow,
finding the time to write…when I can. Because I am off in the summer, that
seems to be my most productive time for writing. My dream job would be writing
full time from home while doing speaking engagements along with coaching
individuals and teams.
What
would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
I
would have to say it is when I get up several times during the night to write. I
will begin the process of going to bed and that seems to be when I get my best
inspiration. Maybe it is because I begin to shut my mind down and God can speak
to me about what to write. My husband is getting used to me getting up and
down. Because I prefer to type instead of write, I have to get up and go to my
office.
As
a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
Like
most children, I wanted to be many different things. The one that I remember
the most is a business woman with a secretary who works in a tall building.
Most of all, I wanted to be loved and treasured. I think most little girls, and
big girls, want that.
Anything
additional you want to share with the readers?
I
am grateful to God, honored and humbled at what has taken place in my life
since the writing of Trusting In The Father’s Love. I have the wonderful
opportunity to meet and share my life story with many women. It is a joy when a
woman comes up to me and shares how my book has touched her life. What I know
is that if I can go through all that I have and come through it, anyone can. You
have to have faith in God and know and trust that He loves you and wants the
best for you. You can connect with me on my website, blogFacebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. I am offering a special book tour price on my website.
Thank
You.
