Will Kathryn’s warmth and beauty melt George’s cold heart?

Monday, December 3rd, 2018

 

Lauraine Henderson lives with her husband, dog and cat on 68 acres of woodland 40 miles north of Portland, Oregon. After growing up in Oregon, they moved their family of three children to Utah. From there they moved to Hawaii and Arizona, finally coming back to Oregon in 2015. Their three children, two girls and a boy are all grown and live across the United States. 
 
After being a professional bookkeeper for over twenty years, she turned her hobby of writing into her first published novel in 2016. She loves to write inspirational romance and romantic comedy and hopes her readers will be both entertained and uplifted by her stories. When she’s not writing, she’s working her way through online university, loves to paint (watercolors, oils, and acrylics), sew, knit, crochet, make beaded jewelry, and read (of course!).
George Stone can’t wait for the Christmas season to be over and his employees, especially his executive assistant, Kathryn Gleason, focused once again on their work. When a missing report requires George to stop in at Kathryn’s parents’ home the day before Christmas Eve, he ends up as an unexpected guest. Between the haunting journals of his late grandfather and the unsettling dream of an unhappy future, George is swept away by the magic of Kathryn’s charm and her family’s love. 
 

 

Will the Spirit of Christmas show George the happiness he’s missing and will Kathryn’s warmth and beauty melt his cold heart?
 
 
 
 

 

Snippet:
Had she ever seen George’s eyes sparkle like that? Maybe when he’d been
angry. But he wasn’t angry now and Kathryn pulled in a deep breath as she found
herself drawn into George’s deep brown eyes and matched their intensity.
Time slowed. “Oh!” Kathryn’s foot slipped and she fell back, landing
softly in the cold blanket of white. George relinquished his snowball, followed
her into the snow, and held himself above her while he shook cold, white
crystals from his knit hat over her face.
“Stop! Please. You win.” Kathryn laughed. “I give!”
“What do you give, Kathryn? What do I win?”
George asked so seriously, Kathryn had to look carefully to make sure
he was still teasing.
“What do you want, George?” Flirting wasn’t really her style, but he
brought out the tease in her.
George’s eyes flitted over her face, stopping at her eyes and then
moving on to her mouth. Her lips parted of their own accord and George leaned
in.
“Oomph!” George grunted when three little bodies all jumped on him and
pushed him against Kathryn. “I’m sorry. Are you hurt?” he asked in her ear,
barely above a whisper.
“I’m great,” she answered, the eyes glimmering back at him with
unfulfilled promises.
George licked his lips and pushed the kids off his back. Kathryn was
fairly certain she heard him say, “Later,” before he turned and pretended to
attack his assailants.

Essence Of Courage from the bible

Sunday, March 5th, 2017

 

As women we encounter multiple challenges, while simultaneously wearing
many hats. We need courage to face our challenges and commitments. In Song
of Solomon 4, Solomon ascribes the essences of his locked garden to the
courageous woman he has taken as his wife. This inspirational study will
provide an opportunity for you to discover:


• The secrets of the fruit, spices, and essential oils in Solomon’s locked garden.

• A deeper meaning of these fruits, spices and essential oil essences in Scripture by studying different women in the Bible.

• How others learn through their struggles and triumphs when you meet Cinnamah-Brosia and the women with whom she does life.

• Encouragement to allow the Holy Spirit to cultivate the essence of courage in your heart.

• Fun facts about the spices and essential oils, along with ways for you to
enjoy incorporating reminders of the fruit they represent into your life.

Pulled reluctantly into women’s ministry nearly four decades ago, Lynn Watson now treasures the opportunities that were provided to lead, encourage and mentor women through relationships and Bible studies. She wrote a few of the studies, too. Drawing from those experiences, along with years serving others professionally in the complementary healthcare field and her love for essential oils, Lynn delights in bringing her readers freshly inspired insights drawn from and focused on the many fruits, plants, oils, and spices mentioned in God’s Word. Married since 1973, Lynn and Steve call Bartlett, Tennessee home. Their home is filled with handmade treasures and lots of love for family, especially their five beautiful (of course) grandchildren.

The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control…
According to Pastor Lynn Watson, the woman described in Proverbs 31 is the absolutely ideal woman and she goes about to prove it in this book.
You will find Handy Hints for Using this Inspirational Volume to its best. I believe many people young and old will find a refreshing tale, mingled with scriptures. The story doesn’t start until page 27 and that is when what this book is all about became more clear to me. The book was a bit confusing as it jumped from one thing to another.
In between the story you will find a spices, fruit, and essential oils mentioned and explored totally–What its name means, where in the bible verse it was mentioned, how it was used and its role in the arts.
The story is so full of love, compassion and real care for all characters. and this includes the readers. I found it inspiring with warmth emanating from each page. The problem is, with all the explanations about the fruit or spices, it becomes confusing to me of where one ends (Fruit, spices, essential oils, and bible histories) and the other continued (the story of Cinnamah-Brosia).
 The way it was written is quite different from what I am adjusted to reading and I am sure that is what caused my confusion. That said, I loved the story and I liked the history of the fruits and spices and where to find them in the bible. I just didn’t enjoy it mixed together. This book will be loved and enjoyed by all who have a bit of knowledge about God and His written word. Also those who love essential oils.
This is a Christian story, full of love from serving the only true God.
