My 2019 word of the year has been Breakthrough. I talked all about it back in January and just read through that post again this morning. It was a little invigorating remembering all that God had been speaking to me in those cold winter months. 

What I didn't share in that post was something God had spoken to me during a prayer time a few months earlier. It was something I was keeping close to my heart, a secret between me and...

"When a unicorn waltzes into Daisy’s pasture, a poacher shows up, who will stop at nothing to gain the unicorn horn and its tears."

     My friend and fellow, former Vox Dei author, Kandi Wyatt has a new book releasing just in time and perfect for National Unicorn Day! She was kind of enough to stop by and give us all the details. 

Background information

In my full-time job, I’m a teacher. I have dream class sizes,...

2016 was my year on PURPOSE.

2017 was my year of PROMISE.

2018 was my year of PASSION.

(Don't you love the alliteration there? I do. It makes me happy and to be honest I wasn't even trying for it but that's how much Jesus gets me.)

I didn't plan on having a word of the year for 2019, Really I didn't. Those previous three years and three words neatly tied up a season of my life, and using them as points of focus made sense. So as 2...

In just a few hours, 2018 will end and 2019 will begin. Whether you go out with friends, countdown in front of New Year's Rockin' Eve in your own living room, or go to bed early, the new year will come at the stroke of midnight. Are you ready for what it holds?

In The Chronicle of the Three: Eden Sword (the final installment in the trilogy) Zoe is struggling to celebrate as her destiny weighs on her. Thankfully, she's got Danie...

Is gifting even a word? Did I make that up? I don't know, it doesn't matter. What matters is it means giving gifts. In Eden Sword we find out that one of Claire's super powers is giving amazing gifts. 

I have to admit, I'm not quite as good at gifting as Claire but I do love giving good gifts to those I love. (It's one of my top two love languages so that could be part of it.) Birthdays, Holidays, just because...I love it when...

While for many of us the Holiday season is filled with joy and family, for a lot of people it adds up to be a blue Christmas. (I'm sure Zoe, Claire, Maggie, and the gang can attest to spending holidays feeling way less than jolly.) You don't have to be a demon slayer to have some dark shadows that haunt you and keep you in the dark when the rest of the world seems so full of light. 

But you don't have to let the darkness w...

"Everybody loves pie."

Zoe makes this assertion in The Chronicle of the Three: Bloodline and I 100% believe it to be true. How? Not everyone can love pie? It's impossible, you say. Well, think about it. There are so many different varieties of pie...fruit pies, cream pies, even meat pies. You can even have Derby pie (my personal favorite) which is basically a gooey chocolate chip cookie in a pie crust. So I think if everyone tr...

EEK! Here's an early Christmas gift from me to you, a TCO3 Trilogy bonus short.

I hope you enjoy it!

      The last couple of weeks, Maggie had been more over-the-top than normal and Lucas found it a bit exhausting. He couldn’t take much more holiday cheer or he might crack and go back to his villainous ways. 

     “You’re being a Grinch,” Maggie had told him. 

     “Well, I get where the guy was comi...

Let me begin by bursting your bubble just a little and tell you that I'm not Ellen or Oprah so these 12 days aren't coming with daily prizes. (Sorry, I hated to do that.) They do come with the gift of connection, sass, fun and a good dose of Maggie's holiday spirit (which sounds like a lollipop flavor...I'll get on that). There may also be a little surprise in the works for my readers on one of the days. (Keep an eye out on DA...

Vampires, and werewolves, and high school! OH MY!!

You'll find all of the above in The Knight's Academy series by Emerald Barnes. I've written about it before (cuz I love this series) and I am writing about it again because a third book is coming soon!! EEK!!! (Yours truly may have gotten a sneak peek at the manuscript and it is awesome!)

The Marked and The Hunted are all about a girl, Myka, who ends up at this private school wi...
