Hello from Davalynn Spencer who’s hanging on tight. The winds off the Rocky Mountains can blow every cloud from the sky and everything from the yard that’s not tied down—a perfect reason to read what today’s featured author Twila Belk has to say in her new book.
Welcome, Twila. Please give us a nutshell overview of The Power to Be: Be Still, Be Grateful, Be Strong, Be Courageous.
Relatable, honest, and with splashes of humor, this 40-day devotional reveals that we have the power to be still, grateful, strong, and courageous—even when undergoing trials, facing unknowns, battling fears, or struggling with feelings of inadequacy or insecurity. It all has to do with where our focus is.
I suspect you had some personal experience to pour into this devotional. Can you tell us why, exactly, you wrote this book? Read More →

Greetings from C. Kevin Thompson. Well, winter is officially over, I guess. I know. I know. Those of you in Minnesota and Montana might argue the point. It’s all about three words: location, location, location. We almost broke a record the other day of 87 degrees here in central Florida. So much for spring…
So, we sit here on the front porch…ceiling fans on high…ice-cold glasses of lemonade sweating on thirsty stones…welcoming Georgia Shaffer to the Guest’s Adirondack Chair.
Welcome, Georgia! Before we get going on the other questions, first tell us about your latest book, A Gift of Mourning Glories!
The reasons we face loss are many. The results, however, are the same. Our hearts ache. Life as we knew it is gone. We can avoid the most common mistakes of starting over with this book’s practical five-step approach, enabling us to move from feelings of hopelessness and despair to those of hope and joy.

February greetings from Marti Pieper in lovely Mount Dora, Florida, where we’re not quite sure what season it is. This has been the coldest winter of our ten-plus years in Florida, but I realize “coldest” is a relative term for most of the rest of the country.
But we have much better things to discuss today than the ever-changing weather. My guest is friend and author Sarah Sundin, writer of award-winning novels and wearer of multiple hats. Let’s find out about some of them—and much more—right now.
Welcome, Sarah! Please Tell us about your book.

Hello from Davalynn Spencer in sunny Colorado. On a clear winter’s day, I can see almost all the way east to Illinois where today’s featured author, Diana Lesire Brandmeyer lives.
Okay, maybe not all that way, but I know she’s out there writing her “stories from the heartland.”
Welcome, Diana, and give us the back-cover copy for your book, From a Distance.
