Conveniently Wed 

Pony Express manager Clayton Young arrives for his new assignment at a Wyoming ranch just in time to save Maggie Fillmore’s ailing baby. The lovely young widow is struggling to care for a ranch, her sister and a newborn, and Clayton plans to pursue medicine—not marriage. Yet Maggie’s dire situation spurs him to offer a match of convenience…

Maggie hoped never to rely on any man again, even one as kind as Clayton. But with her late husband’s greedy cousin trying to take away her ranch, she has little choice. And though Maggie worries her union with Clayton might not be enough to save her ranch, she soon sees it could be just what her heart needs.

Sipping in the Summertime

When the temperature hovers in the high nineties for days on end here in the Sierra Foothills where I live, I get mighty thirsty. While I enjoy ice water, my drink of choice is limeade.


I’ve downed numerous glasses of Simply Limeade this summer. It’s refreshing as well as being lip-smacking good.

LIH Spotlight: Mail-Order Marriage Promise

This week I’m shining the spotlight on
Mail-Order Marriage Promise, a September release from
Love Inspired Historical author Regina Scott.

Learn more about the story below, and then scroll
down to enter the giveaway for a print copy.

Wanted: Husband and Father 

Stunned that his sister ordered him a mail-order bride, John Wallin insists he’s not the husband Dottie Tyrrell needs. The scholarly logger knows Dottie will make the perfect wife—for some other man. Yet he’s compelled to invite the lovely widow and her infant son to stay with his family…but only until she can find her own way.

Dreams of true love are for other women. Betrayed by her baby’s father, Dottie just wants a safe home for her precious child. But who could resist a man with John’s quiet strength? When her secret past brings danger to their door, they may yet find this mail-order mix-up to be the perfect mistake…

New School Year

School started today for many of the students in our area. The new year will begin Tuesday for my daughter, and it’s an exiting one. Adri will be doing her student teaching this fall and will earn her credential around the middle of the school year, although she’ll still be taking classes for her Master’s of Teaching program. I’m one proud mom!

When I was a kid, few things excited me as much as the first day of school. I welcomed the end of summer and eagerly awaited the return to the classroom.

One of the ways I prepared for the Big Day was to restock my school supplies. New binders, Pee Chee folders, paper, pencils and pens could put a huge smile on my face.

Thanks to my new Bin Babe position at church—filling the bins with supplies for our Sunday School teachers each week—that I first mentioned in my May 29 post, I had a wonderful excuse to visit the Back-to-School sales this year. I snagged some great deals. There’s nothing quite like the thrill of getting four glue sticks for 1¢!

Another reason I’ve been looking forward to the start of the new school year is that our break is over and my Bin Babe buddy, Carol, and I are back to work.

In preparation for the new year, I spent several days completing the organization of the craft supplies that I’d started in May. I’m delighted with the results.

That project was both fun and functional. Carol and I can quickly find the craft items we’re looking for, which has cut our prep time, leaving more time for me to assist our children’s director in other ways.

LIH Spotlight – Inherited: Unexpected Family

This week I’m shining the spotlight on
Inherited: Unexpected Family, an August release from
Love Inspired Historical author Gabrielle Meyer.

Learn more about the story below, and then scroll
down to enter the giveaway for a print copy.

An Unexpected Partnership 

After arriving in Minnesota Territory with her sisters to claim their late father’s hotel, Elizabeth Bell is shocked to learn her inheritance comes with a handsome co-owner. After too long working for a domineering boss, Elizabeth yearns to be in control—of the hotel and her life. But Jude Allen won’t sell his share, and Elizabeth refuses to leave.

Rescuing soiled doves and giving them hotel jobs is Jude’s way of redeeming his past. He’s counting on rough frontier life driving his new business partner away before she learns the scandalous truth and demands he stop his mission. But he may have underestimated Elizabeth…and the power of love to turn a complication into a bright new beginning.

Bling!

When it comes to jewelry, my collection is fairly small. It consists primarily of earrings, although I do have a few necklaces.

My writing partner, Anne, knows how much I love purple and sent me this lovely set of bracelets for my birthday a few weeks back.

Before receiving Anne’s gift, I didn’t wear bracelets very often, but I’ve been won over. They give an outfit some welcome pizazz.

I added the bracelet below to my jewelry stash at a bling exchange recently and am having fun wearing it, too.

Now that I’ve discovered how delightful wearing bracelets can be, I’ll be keeping my eyes open for others to add to my jewelry stash.
