New Endeavors

When I announced my retirement in my May 15 blog post, I mentioned how excited I am to embark on this new chapter of my life. One of the things I’ve been looking forward to is having time to volunteer at church.

I’ve assumed a position in our Kids World program that’s affectionately known as a Bin Babe. A dear lady and I meet with our Children’s Director once each week to fill five bins with supplies that will be used the following Sunday by our elementary teachers, making their jobs easier.

Because I love organizing, I was given permission to do some rearranging of the many supplies we have on hand. I’m just getting started, but my first project of finding a new home for the most-used craft items is complete, thanks to some clear plastic shoe boxes. Looking at this shelf makes my heart happy.
I have plans for many other organization projects, including creating an inventory of all our elementary department supplies using an Excel spreadsheet. Can you tell I’m detail-oriented?

Having time to do something that brings me so much joy is helping smooth the transition from my writing world to my new role as a retiree. There are moments I miss telling stories, but I’m helping Sunday School teachers tell the most important stories of all, which fills me with a deep sense of satisfaction.

💜💜💜

LIH Spotlight: Make-Believe Beau

Make-Believe Beau Front Med

The Courtship Charade 

As a draftswoman in a man’s world, Jessica Sinclair causes a stir as her new male colleagues vie for her attention. And the company manager has an ultimatum: fake a courtship with her boss, Flynt Kavanaugh…or lose her job. But pretending to be smitten with the handsome engineer unleashes a real, complicated attraction—and could reveal the past she hoped to keep hidden.

Jessica is certainly the best person for the job. But as their make-believe romance escalates, Flynt knows that’s not the only reason he wants her on his team. However, with his past shrouded by a shameful secret, Flynt has always focused his ambitions on building a career, not a family. Now he has designs on Jessica’s heart, but can they trust each other with the truth?

A Fun Fact About Me…

Many women dream of a diamond engagement ring. I wanted something different. When my husband asked me to marry him, he took me to pick out a ring. Although purple is my favorite color these days, blue was at the time. I chose a lovely sapphire, which I wore as a lone stone for twenty-five years. At that point, we added a small diamond on either side of it. I found out that I do like the sparkle after all. 🙂

Sometimes I work tidbits from my real life into my stories. The hero of Make-Believe Beau, irrigation engineer Flynt Kavanaugh, received a special piece of jewelry from an unexpected source. The stone is–you guessed it–a sapphire. Flynt’s sapphire is bigger than mine, but that’s all I can tell you about it without giving away too much of the story.

Your Turn…

What gemstone is your favorite, and why?

Is there a story behind your favorite piece of jewelry?
