Long Way Home by Author Brenda S. Anderson is now availabe to pre-order for only $0.99

What would you do if you learned that the person you’re about to head out on a long road trip with was the same person who bullied you when you were young?

That’s the very dilemma Lauren Bauman faces in Long Way Home. Her brother has offered to help her move across country to start her new job, and he’s also invited a new friend, Jet Wurm, to join them. But Jet happens to be the guy once who bullied Lauren.

Only recently has she overcome the insecurity that was born due in large part to his bullying, and she fears that being near him will re-birth those old self-doubts.

So now, Lauren has a decision to make: will she continue on the road trip and face her fears, giving Jet a second chance? Or should she skip the road trip and fly to her new home?

She chooses to go on that road trip, and thus begins a faith and growth-filled journey toward home for both Lauren and Jet.

To pique your interest further, here’s the back-cover copy for Long Way Home, The Potter’s House Books, book 4:

Can she forgive the man who once bullied her, and

learn that love keeps no record of wrongs?

Having overcome the crippling insecurities of childhood bullying, Lauren Bauman is eager to start her new job 1,000 miles away, and road-tripping across the country with her brother Nate and his new friend seems to be the perfect way to celebrate the move. But her confidence is shaken when she meets Nate’s friend—the kid who’d bullied her years before, trapping her in a decade-long shell of self-doubt.

For Jet Wurm, losing his job and getting kicked out of his apartment were the best things that ever happened to him. Thanks to the friend who rescued him, he’s finally shedding the loser label he’d worn for years. Nate even invited him along on a cross-country road trip with his sister, and Jet couldn’t be more excited. But then he meets Lauren, and her fearful reaction tells him they must have met before. Where, he can’t recall, but he has no doubt he’d somehow hurt her—like he’d hurt so many others in his past. And now he’s stuck on a six-day road trip with a woman who obviously deplores him.

Though Jet is clearly not the same person who’d bullied her years before, Lauren still struggles to forgive him. But if she doesn’t find the courage to forgive, will that convince Ryan he’s as worthless as he’d always been taught to believe? Or will they learn that real love keeps no record of wrongs?

Release day of When it Rains, Book 2 of The Potter’s House Books!

We each have hopes, dreams and certain ideas of what our lives will be. Especially when we say the famous words “I do” at the altar. It’s not very often we think for a second something horrible can happen to us, to our marriage, our families or to our precious children.

When it Rains is about one woman’s journey and her hope of giving her daughter a fresh start somewhere new. Trusting God, she goes just like Abraham went when God told him to leave.

In our lives, we can get stuck in ruts in the road and be blinded by the reality happening around us. For instance, a mother, like Hannah in “When It Rains”, can be so focused on her own healing that her daughter is neglected in the process.

God desires for us not to have a perfect life, but to walk in Spirit and in His Truth revealed through the Bible. When you pick up the Bible and read about the pillars of faith and even our Savior Jesus Christ, you don’t just see amazing faith come to life on the pages, you see real people with real struggles! Whether it was David’s sin with Bathsheba or Jesus sweating blood in the garden or being tempted by Satan. Real and authentic people are not merely suggested for God to do a work but needed!

My prayer through writing this book wasn’t merely to write an entertaining story but to shine a light on God’s never-ending and always abounding grace. We as Christians need to start learning and understanding that we cannot walk in Spirit and in Truth without a true relationship with our Creator. It’s through a relationship, reading His Word (listening) and praying (talking), that we can experience all that life has to offer!

Paul was killed, along with most the founders of the church. This is sad but true. God doesn’t promise us we won’t experience difficulties, but He does promise to be by our side along the way if we allow Him into our lives.

May this story bless you as much as it has blessed me to write it.

Pre-Order “The Homecoming” now!

We all have family members who’ve chosen a different life path to what we’d hoped they’d choose. Christian parents pray diligently that their children will retain their faith as they become adults and leave the family home, but so often they’re drawn away by the glitter of the world and the parents are left wondering where they went wrong and why God didn’t protect their loved ones from the ways of the world.

In “The Homecoming”, Stephen and Marianne McCormack struggle to accept the lifestyle that their daughter, Kayla, has chosen. Despite Kayla’s success as a pop star, they’re grieved that she’s exchanged the glitter of the world for her soul. Much to Kayla’s annoyance, her mother reminds her of that almost every time they speak.

Kayla’s life revolves around her concerts, tours, fans, and her married boyfriend. As far as she’s concerned, her life is perfect and she has no need for old-fashioned religion. But to God, she’s a precious child, a special creation, and He loves her with His whole being. He can’t force her to return His love, but when her life starts to implode, He uses an unlikely friend from the past to teach her gently about Himself.

Kayla’s parents also begin to understand God’s heart, and instead of continually casting judgment on Kayla and her lifestyle, with God’s help, they learn to love her unconditionally.

It’s a real challenge when we long to see our loved ones saved but their hearts are closed. When we see them self-destruct. When we don’t see answers to our prayers.

But we should never give up hope. We don’t know what situations might cause them to reconsider their lifestyle and their beliefs, or what person God might use to draw them to Himself.

Our job is to pray for them and to love them unconditionally. It’s God’s job to woo them and draw them to Himself.

Here’s a prayer you can pray for your unsaved loved ones.

Loving Father,

Please work in me so I can share your love, life and message with (….). Reveal your love to them in whatever way you see fit, that they might come to know, love and follow you, and to experience all that you have planned for them, for your glory.  In Jesus’ name. Amen

I pray that Kayla’s story will encourage you to never give up hope. To know that God “wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.” 1 Timothy 2:4

Take care, and God bless,

Release Date: 27th March, 2018

Can she surrender a life of fame and fortune to find true love?

After leaving the small sleepy town of Shelton for the big city, Kayla McCormack struck it big time in the music industry. Her new life gave her everything she needed and wanted… fame, fortune, and fun. She even snagged a famous movie star for a boyfriend.

Just one problem – he’s married, and her conservative Christians parents don’t approve.

Dane Carmichael has had a crush on Kayla since she performed in the school Talent Show at age ten. Now carrying a war wound, Dane’s life revolves around the group of young teens he mentors at church, instilling in them the importance of remaining pure and following Jesus, not the world.

When Kayla rushes home to visit her father after receiving devastating news, she and Dane reconnect. His simple faith and life fascinate but scare her.

Kayla is challenged to assess her chosen lifestyle, but she’s also harboring a secret. She can’t forgive herself for what she did, so how can she expect God to? As He gently draws her to Himself, molding and shaping her, just like Dane does with his pots, she begins to understand how forgiving, loving and kind He really is.

Let this story of love, hope and second chances warm your heart and draw you close to the One who loves you without condition.

Pre-Order will be available 27th February
