More on James – Missions

In the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, young men age 18 are asked to serve a 2 year mission. Young women age 19 and older can serve if they so desire for 18 months, and many do (my daughter is serving in South Korea right now and loves it).

My character James in Eyes of Lightwho you were introduced to last week–serves a mission in Guatemala when the story begins. I based his experiences off my little brother’s mission there about eight years ago. His letters fascinated me. I tease my brother that my character James is like him—only cool. (Siblings can get away with being rude in a loving way like that) 🙂 Continue reading

BW TrilogyMy daughter is in the process of redesigning my covers for the Bending Willow Trilogy. I’m so excited and love her ideas! This series has been four years in the making (shhh! I know I’m slow, but please don’t taunt me).  As I’ve written and revised each volume, my overall vision for this set has transformed as characters have surprised me and done things I haven’t expected. As I watched my characters suffer, this quote became my new theme.

Share the Gift

I love the Christmas season…usually. In the video clip at the end, the first part shows the stresses of this season, and I think we’ve all had our moods affected by those at times. But the true reason for this season is to remember our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. This video makes me cry as it reminds me that Heavenly Father gave all of us the ultimate gift in His Son over 2,000 years ago. Jesus Christ came to earth in the most humble of circumstances and He lived a humble life. Continue reading
