Crown of Promise Devotions – Grace and the Prodigal

Bring Her Home is inspired by Jesus’ parable of the Prodigal Son (found in Luke 15:11-32) and while it’s mostly Evangeline’s story (ie, ‘the prodigal’), it’s also very much the story of a father’s grace and incredible love. Growing up in a Christian family where my second home was our church, I’ve heard the Prodigal… Continue reading Crown of Promise Devotions – Grace and the Prodigal

Crown of Promise Devotions – The Stained-Glass Window

Like Eva in Bring Her Home, I want people to think I have it all together. That I’m strong, and confident, and unshakeable every hour of every day, no matter what life throws at me.

Behind the Book Interviews: Janelle Leonard – Managing Editor

As you can probably imagine, writing books is a pretty solitary task. The publishing of books, however, definitely isn't. There are so many people behind the scenes turning the words I write into the books you hold, from editors to proofreaders to cover designers and the publishers themselves (among others!). If you've read the Acknowledgements… Continue reading Behind the Book Interviews: Janelle Leonard – Managing Editor
