Revisions and Rewrites:
I’ve been keeping my nose to the proverbial grindstone and will continue to do so for the next few weeks. Expect blog posts to be sporadic as I don’t know much about the world beyond what is happening in the story in front of me (although while I worked out this morning, I saw that OJ was arrested).
I decided to participate in the Beth Moore study, Breaking Free. It started last week. The other two Moore studies that I’ve done (Believing God and Living Beyond Yourself) were both done on my own using the on-line videos. So it is nice to be doing this with a group. I think there were between 80 and 100 women in my class. There is another class doing it on a different day and time. I’m looking forward to seeing what the Lord reveals to me through this class.
Christian Fiction Monday:
It’s that time again for me to feature another great author and great book. This Monday the book is from my good friend and fellow brainstorming partner, Tricia Goyer. Tricia is an amazing writer and her books set against the backdrop of war are intricately researched and fascinating to read. So don’t miss her latest.
Shadow of Treason
Book 2 in the Chronicles of the Spanish Civil War series
Sophie discovers that nothing is as she first imagined. When Walt, the reporter who helped her over the border, shows up again after Guernica is bombed, Sophie is given an impossible mission. She must leave behind the man she’s fallen in love with and return to the person who betrayed her. Another layer of the war in Spain is revealed as Sophie is drawn into the international espionage schemes that could turn the tide of the war and help protect the soldiers from the International Brigade … she must find a way to get a critical piece of information to Walt in time.
