My New Book and a Giveaway!


I realize I've been remiss in not mentioning my newest book here. It is only going to appeal to Christians and that's not something we talk about here a lot, but, as Scott Danielson said, there is a lot of me on every page.
This book is for the beginner and for those beginning again — to bring us closer to Jesus, which is every Christian’s greatest desire.

Each page gently leads the reader to open up and encounter Christ in their own way — using scripture and inspirational quotes, reflection, brief commentary, and prayer.

Foster a daily habit of prayer and reflection that will continue long after you come to the end of this book.
Read an excerpt, find interviews, and read review highlights at Niggle Publishing.

 BOOK GIVEAWAY! 
A raffle for Seeking Jesus in Everyday Life ... done by Heather Ordover at the CraftLit podcast.

(She is the best - if you haven't listened to CraftLit then you are missing a real treat in literary enjoyment).

Giveaway ends May 5 so sign up!
