I have a thank you. A thank you that’s been two years in the making. Because it was nearly two years ago that I posted this picture on my blog. And I told you all that I would be writing three books for WaterBrook Multnomah.

My how two years have flown by!

A very special thank you to WaterBrook Multnomah for giving this newbie a chance. I had absolutely no idea what I was doing, but you walked me through the steps and you gave this story wings. I will be forever grateful. You gave these books some of the prettiest covers a girl could ever hope for, introduced me to the most amazing marketers and publicists and sales reps in your publishing family and you showed me how to be a better writer. I will be forever grateful. 

And thank you to all the readers who met Lonnie and Gideon in Be Still My Soul and walked with them through the heartache of Though My Heart is Torn, all the while hoping that joy might be on the horizon. You braved the rough and mighty river with me and I am so thankful to you for your friendship and encouragement along this journey. 

It is my absolute joy to share with you My Hope is Found. I pray these pages might bless you. I pray they might encourage you. I hope they’ll make you smile and maybe even laugh and if you shed a tear or two know that you are not alone for I did too. 

And I hope above all hopes, that the promises of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, might live in the pages.  If He ever gives us more than we think we can handle, it’s only so that we might cling to Him. I can’t think of any better place to be.

Hugs, hugs and more hugs to all of you!
