Blooming in Broken Places

Coming November 2017

Over the years many people have asked me to write my story. It just wasn’t the right time. Last year when I was writing the third book in the Skye Southerland Cozy Mystery Series I was led to write Blooming in Broken Places.

Even though my life’s had some gritty moments, I wanted the book to be encouraging, so I came up with the idea of weaving my story with those of women from the Bible that God used even when they were in their darkest places. While researching, I came away full of encouragement and feeling blessed. I discovered that God frequently used broken women for his glory.

Another thing I have learned through the trials I’ve endured is that God’s timing is not always our timing. Just because our goals or dreams haven’t been realized doesn’t mean they won’t be – we might have to wait longer than expected, but during that time God can and will use us.

I hope that my story, as well as the stories of Miriam, Esther, Rahab and others, will encourage you and fill you with hope. My one wish is you will learn that you, too, can bloom in your broken places.
