Read Four Sample Chapters from My New Novel, A Young Mother’s Redemption, for Free

Hey y’all!  About almost one year ago, I was going through a bit of a funk.  My family had recently left our church (…it’s a very long story.  Basically we were sitting underneath a very authoritative pastor, who among many other things, told us that we were going to have to undergo church discipline for not hanging around to fellowship after church.  Our children were continuously being hurt by rough children, and when I voiced my concerns to the pastor’s wife, they were ignored.  We were told that putting our children’s safety over fellowshipping after the church service was indicative that our priorities were out of order.  Seriously.)  Anyhow, that is another story for another day, but the pastor and his wife were also very critical of this blog…I was contacted quite often if they didn’t approve of something I mentioned or my tone, and was given the “not everyone is called to teach,” talk.   This experience left us battered and bruised to say the least, and for awhile I stopped blogging.  I seriously questioned my ability to share (I wouldn’t even call it teach) on this platform, but I still yearned to write.  I decided to enter an inspirational fiction writing contest.

While my story wasn’t chosen for publication (for too strong of a faith element, and a disagreement about story line), my oldest two daughters have been nudging me to self publish, instead of rewrite and resubmit.  I would never write faith out of a story.  I decided to give it a go, and the story will be available on January 1st, 2016!

The storyline is based loosely off of this blog…

Lord, will I ever be enough?

Young, unwed mother Claire Taylor has had more than her share of heartache. After fleeing her childhood home since her father heartily disapproves of her choice to raise her daughter, she finds a place of refuge at her aunt’s seaside abode in coastal Georgia. To her dismay, a handsome stranger catches her eye, who is none other than the local minister’s son, Jackson Reed. A friendship begins to blossom between the two before a devastating hurricane racks their community, and the pair are forced to evacuate to her childhood home. Can Claire and Jackson’s relationship withstand the storm? More importantly, will Claire ever find redemption from her past?

2 Thoughts on “Read Four Sample Chapters from My New Novel, A Young Mother’s Redemption, for Free

  1. wow quite the opposite of my church, which doesn’t even have a social hall due to the concerns of some about an overemphasis on social things. It’s funny to me how the things we get all worked up about varies from church to church. There are some I know that would even feel it sinful to have a social hall connected to the church or eat in the church.

    • I agree with you, I don’t feel like there is a place for a social hall in a church, but I’m not sure how that applies the fiction novel I’ve written. Blessings! 🙂
