Oh so Crazy

6 Sep

Life gets crazy. Some days it seems like my to-do list is only rivaled by the plethora of things I forgot to add to my to-do list, but still need to be done. Why in the great blue yonder is this list so long? I’m blessed to be home with my three kids, loved by my wonderful husband, doing a job I adore on a timeframe of my choosing, and happy to have a small, but fantastic group of friends…I should have more time to just…have time.

 

But I don’t and when the day of “aaaaaaaah!!” comes and I need to relax and I need to do nothing, I look to books. And more than just any books, I look for one that is sweet. Life is busy and crazy and sometimes, frankly, unpleasant. Sometimes I need a shot of sugar and when I do I find a sweet story that makes me sigh and giggle and smile even after it’s over.

 

With the crazy of getting back into the school routine or the crazy of having to hear about other people getting into that routine if it doesn’t apply to you, I hope you’re able to take a little sweet time for yourself. Fill it with something good that will make you smile!

During high school, Warren was just Wendy’s youth pastor. All grown up and shepherding over her own flock of church kids, Wendy Miller turns to her old friend for help. Not that Warren is that old. In fact, the two have a lot more in common than Wendy would have ever thought.

After the death of his wife, Warren was sure he was finished with relationships. Wendy changes that forgone conclusion with her bright spirit and zest for life. Lining up their desires when they’re at very different points in their lives proves a challenge that might take a little divine intervention, or at least help from friends.

Stephanie J Grace-prancing in the daisies

19 Sep

My name is Stephanie J Grace…no really it’s Stephanie Beck…no, wait, that’s still not right. Anywhoser, this is the page for Stephanie J Grace, sweet, inspirational romance writer, YA writer, and lover of all things sweet…including cake.

Inspirational romance is one of those things that needs a few specific features. The relationship between the characters and each other as well as their relationship with God come into play. Such relationships are deeply personal and getting a glimpse into them can make a story something more. It can be a gentle push into repairing relationships or into taking the first step in making one.

YA (young adult) romance also falls into the Stephanie J Grace book-bag. Romance for the 18-24 crowd doesn’t necessarily need to be all sunshine and daisies, but it does focus in more on the issues and details of the lives of younger people (I just got pushed out of the target reading age for this one, but I still love it).

A new name, a new face, a new line of stories–what a better way to embrace the changing of the season? Stop in, look around and pass on the goodness.

Lots of Love
