It has been a while since the last Romano Family book, so I was glad to see that Kiss Me at Midnight is here now. As a single mother, Celeste has her hands more than full. But this is nothing new. Even when she was married, she didn’t have support […]
I have really been enjoying the Return of the Blackwell Brothers series! Each of the authors has written a story that works so well with the others. I love the concept of each of the five brothers being called back to help with their grandfather’s ranch, one by one, in […]
Hide not your face from me. Turn not your servant away in anger, O you who have been my help. Cast me not off; forsake me not, O God of my salvation! For my father and my mother have forsaken me, but the LORD will take me in. Psalm 27:9-10 I can’t […]

“Why should I lock my computer? This is a Christian ministry,” Rick asked me when I questioned him leaving it unlocked in a high-traffic common area. I sometimes wonder at the false sense of security that working for a large Christian organization brings to those who are there. We work […]
I checked my watch again. Fifteen minutes had passed. Still no sign of her. Sigh.
The lady I “carpooled” with (she didn’t have a car so I did all the driving) was sooo chronically late. Not five minutes late. Twenty to twenty-five minutes. Every day.
