Change is a Good Thing!
There's a country song with the line "rain is a good thing." I'm switching that up a little and making it change is a good thing.
Change is inevitable in our lives and although sometimes stressful or difficult it can also be productive.
Just like rain brings new life to growing things change forces us to grow and bloom.
This summer has brought a multitude of changes to my life. I'm teaching back at my old post here in the states, living in my own house and working on new things. Good thing the 'every-day hero' is flexible too.
New writing project
I'm hoping that things start to settle down soon but in the meantime I'm reminding myself to revel in the ability to adapt and grow. One challenge I've faced with a heart full of excitement is a new writing project. If you haven't heard I'm part of a series with a group of wonderful authors.
Whispers in Wyoming is a joint effort between yours-truly, Kari Trumbo, Lynn Winchester, Lisa Prysock, and Rachel Skatvold. This SWEET, Western, Christian series hearkens back to the elements of faith, love, and commitment passed down through generations or born anew in hearts who find redemption in unexpected places. Each story has a connection to Wyoming and an edge on modern struggles.
For more on this series join us at Whispers in Wyoming facebook page where you'll find new releases, updates, sneak peaks, cover reveals, contests and new friends. Oh, and stop by our individual pages to learn more about each of my special 'pen-friends'.
Not only is doing a group series a change for me, this series itself is my first foray into writing contemporary western romance. The first book in the series; Love Letters & Home
has actually been in my heart a long time and reconnects with the Broken J Ranch from my Cattleman's Daughters series. In writing that original series I couldn't help but think of the legacy left to me by my family. I come from a very large family on my mother's side and this raucous, loving family not only gave me great memories, but also love, laughter, and an understanding of God's amazing grace.
