Update with the Author

Hey guys,

I wanted to post a small message to let you all know what's going on here with my books and writing. I know that it seems like it's been forever since I released another book, but I promise I am working hard on several books. Each one of these books is in different genre however, they're still packed full of inspiration and heartfelt.

****

The Gracious Wife: Being Her Husband's Crown has had most of my attention. This book is aimed at wives who want to live a life as a gracious wife. In this small book, I give you my take on marriage and making God at its center. I'm in the process of adding in a few more things that I feel are important to talk about. I've done one major revision on it. Once I'm complete with the additions, I'll do another read through.  


Rainbow Story is one I know a lot of my readers are waiting for. This one is about my life with my rainbow baby. However, things haven't gone the way I had planned for this one. I wanted to keep a daily journal to record my feelings and thoughts during the pregnancy/birth of my rainbow son, however life got me really messed up at the time. So I didn't get to do this. Therefore, I'll be writing this book all from memory. 

I have decided that I won't be publishing the book based upon the paranormal aspects. I started writing this book in 2012 before I had given my life to Christ. At this time, I'm having an internal battle because I'm not sure if this would be a book a Christian would be writing. I'm so torn on this because I put three years of work into it. I've been praying to God for my answers but haven't gotten them yet. Once I do I'll make the final decision on the fate of this book. (I'm sorry to those of you who were looking forward to this book.)

I'm working on a book dedicated to my grandmother. She passed away before I was born at the age of 26 from breast cancer. This will be one emotional read!!!

Keep checking back here or on my website for news, events, and inspiration! 
Thanks for reading.
God Bless

FULL COVER REVEAL
Release Information will be provided at a later date.
Cover by Emcat Designs
Book Description:
Marriage can be surreal, unpredictable, and enticing all at the same time. We find and fall in love with our best friend, and all of our dreams seem to be coming true. We've heard of the princess being rescued by her prince and they ride off into the sunset to live happily ever after. Unfortunately, this isn't how marriage is in real life, especially when you're trying to be what God has called you to be. Marriage is two self-centered individuals coming together to live as one.
Given all the foes and dips that may come with marriage, this book gives the basic understanding of marriage the way God intended and not as the way fairy tales has made it out to be.

This book provides Rae-Beth's opinion with communication, getting through the tough times, fair fighting, and keeping God the center of the marriage. Dive in and see marriage from one wife's perspective.

Who is He?

It's eight o'clock on a Sunday morning. You wake to the sound of your alarm, quickly shut it off, and climb out of bed. You grab your phone off the side and head to the kitchen. It's time to get ready for church. While the coffee is brewing, you give a shout to the kids to get up and head to get a quick shower. With your hair folded up in the towel, soaked from the shower, you make take in the sweet aroma of coffee while you make yourself a cup. Midway through you nice quiet moment, the kids roll out of bed, whining that it's too early and they didn't want to get up. You inhale and prepare for your day ahead. 

The rush starts.

Breakfast.
Brush teeth.
Get dressed.

Once the kids are ready, you run off to do something quick with your hair and throw on your waterproof makeup. After a twenty minute fight to get everyone out the door, you rush off to morning church.

Does this sound a bit familiar? I know it does for me because this is my Sunday routine. However, I had the moment to ponder this past Sunday on something. As I was doing my quiet time in the morning, I decided to do my daily devotionals. This was when I realized something. I never really sat and thought about who God really is. I push myself and my family to stay on track and be sure to include God in my everyday. I talk to Him constantly. I swear if someone saw me on a daily basis, they'd think I was crazy. Especially if they're not a believer. 

A small insight to a conversation I recently had with the Lord went a something like this...

I picked up the phone bill, took a deep breath, and opened it. (I hate when the bills come in.) I see the amount owed, which is too high for my liking. "Lord, you have a phone bill down here that needs your attention. This one is yours." I call out to the Lord. 

I have small moments like this during my day. However, I never really stopped to think about besides my Lord and Savior, who is He? I took some time to finally be able to answer this. Here is my answer to who He really is...

God is good and everything He does is great. Everything... I mean everything that he made is good. All of his actions and decisions are good. God is the meaning of what it means to be good. The thoughts that He thinks are always good and not harmful. He's always slow to anger and forgives quickly. When He is angry, this anger is always righteous. 

God is perfect! He always gets it right on the first try and He NEVER makes a mistake. The power He has over sin is strong and mighty. He uses our sins to accomplish good in our lives and helps us learn more of who we are. He is sovereign over evil, yet He is entirely separate from it. However, nothing is out of His control. 

He is merciful.
He is powerful.
He is knowledgeable in everything.
He is patient.
He is faithful.
He is true to all.
He is reliable.
He is honest.

He exists out of time and space. 
He is the creator of it all, including the universe.

He is the ONLY God who was and is to come! He is eternal.

God is worthy of all to praise His name, worship Him, love Him, abide in Him, and adore Him.

****

After I fully understood who God is, I realized that He is worthy of my love. He deserves the devotion I should give Him. He is obedient to my calls and prayers, therefore, I need to be obedient of His calls and plans for my life. Once I started being obedient to His plan, I found Him at the center of my life. My life was full of pure joy, perfect peace, and many blessings. 

Who is He to you?
