Happy Release! Author Brenda S. Anderson releases “Place Called Home”

 

The word “Home” conjures up different images for all of us. For me, when someone says “home,” I think of faith, family, friends … food. 😊 To me, the word conveys warmth, happiness, love, stability, a place where people accept me for who I am, and I don’t have to wear any masks. But, as is shown in PLACE CALLED HOME, not all have the same feeling or experiences.

To my hero, Nate Brooks, “home” has a few different meanings. He grew up in a loving home, but he’s itching to hit the road in his skoolie, a renovated school bus. His idea of home is traveling around the country, seeing God’s amazing creation!

But then there’s my heroine, Tessa Chanson. She grew up traveling across the country and just wants a stable home. She wants the house with a wide front porch and a white picket fence so much that she makes a wrong choice and ends up with an emotional abuser. Suddenly, “home” takes on an entirely different meaning for her.

PLACE CALLED HOME is about Tessa’s journey to discover where Home really is, and Nate plays a very large role in her finding that true Home.

What does the word “Home” mean to you?

 

About PLACE CALLED HOME ~

All she wants is a settled place to call home.
He can’t wait to make home a life-long road trip.

All Tessa Chanson ever wanted was a stable place to call home. She thought she’d found that when she moved in with Jared—until his home became her prison. When his control escalates, the only answer is to escape—an escape that’s hampered when she falls and fractures her ankle.

While building his graphic design company, Nate Brooks is focused on the future he’s dreamed of: traveling around the country from the comfort of his renovated school bus. But when he picks up a wounded, mysterious hitchhiker, those well-laid plans take a backseat to protecting her.

Hobbled by her injury, Tessa fears she’ll never find freedom. Or has she found it with the family who graciously opens their home to her? And will Nate’s protection put his family—and his heart—at risk?

PLACE CALLED HOME is Book 11 of “The Potter’s House Books,” stories of love, hope, redemption, and second chances.

Dear Readers,

We all deal with emotional pain in different ways. Sometimes the pain is so strong, so overwhelming, that we have to find an outlet. And the way we cope with pain isn’t always a healthy one. Let’s take the heroine of my new book, Heart Healed.

Miriam Lizarraga had a rich, glamorous life as a country star, and many people probably envied her. But very few of those people knew the deep pain she carried inside and the way she dealt with it. Miriam was a cutter. Sadly, even in Christian circles, cutting happens more often than we know, especially among teenagers.

The hero of Heart Healed, Philip Barlow, has anger management issues. Who didn’t have an outburst of anger now and then? But when those outbursts become uncontrollable, it can lead to bad consequences. And Miriam knows it all too well…

In my new book, I wanted to show we need to reach out to God because only God can heal our hearts. I also tried to say that we don’t need to push our pain deep inside. There’s help available. First and foremost, from the Lord. Then there are pastors, therapists, friends, relatives, neighbors… Get. Help. Now.

Blessings,

Alexa Verde

New Release, “Gracefully Broken” by T.K. Chapin is now available to read!

Release day of Gracefully Broken, Book 9 of The Potter’s House Books!

The Bible is full of examples of second chances, and it’s through these second chances we learn the true nature and love of God. Whether it was the adulterous and murdering David who was referred to as a man after God’s own heart, or Rahab the prostitute who gets a second chance when the city of Jericho was destroyed. God shows us time and time again to meet people where they are at and not only provide a second chance but to reveal Himself to them in a variety of ways. No matter how bad a person thinks they are, they have a chance in God’s eyes.

With this fact that God gives second chances in mind, I penned Gracefully Broken and used the life of Corey Williams to tell a story of a second chance. Corey is not some hardened criminal, but a normal guy with a normal job and family. He’s relatable. He’s like most of us and struggles with making it from paycheck to paycheck. He understands the hardships of money and life and had a desire to give his family more than he had. One day that’s possible . . . but it ends up costing him everything.

Corey didn’t think about the lasting impact of his split-second decision to play Robin Hood and take from those who don’t need it. He didn’t realize how it would destroy much of the family he cared so much about in the first place. When Corey gets sent away to prison, his wife and children are devastated and suffer in his absence. But, in God’s amazing grace and mercy shows up and works it all together for Corey’s good. He starts by using Corey’s inmate Javi in prison. Javi tells Corey the good news of Jesus Christ.

Sin leads to death, and Corey Williams has to face the death of his marriage to Holly when he is released from prison. A painful reality, but one that he wasn’t surprised to see come to fruition. Who could blame her for not wanting to wait three years for him? Corey begins to a work a normal job and love on his kids the best that he can in the hopes of repairing the brokenness that he had caused. Can he do it? Will God help him? Find out when you read Gracefully Broken by T.K. Chapin.

“Unchained”, by Juliette Duncan, is now available to READ!

Unchained by Juliette Duncan

Unchained is the story of a couple caught up unwittingly with chasing material possessions more than God. In many ways, we’re all guilty of this. I know I am! It’s almost impossible to keep our hearts pure when we’re continually bombarded with advertising telling us we need new “things” all the time! To learn to be content is a continual challenge, but one that I believe as Christians we’re called to.

When Brad Richardson, a well-respected member of his small-town community, lands in jail because of his gambling addiction and fraud, he and his wife, Sally, are forced to look at their hearts, and they find themselves lacking. They’d been duped into believing that the world and all its riches could provide true happiness. What happens over the years of separation changes their lives forever as God gently molds and shapes their hearts and those of their two children.

Unchained is a love story of second chances and hope for a future full of blessing. I pray that it will bless your heart as it did mine.

God bless,

Juliette

Happy Release Day!

Restoring Faith

By: Marion Ueckermann

When love grows cold and vows forgotten, can faith be restored?

 

Charles and Faith Young are numbers people. While Charles spends his days in a fancy Fort Collins office number-crunching, Faith teaches math to the students of Colorado High. Married for sixteen years, Charles and Faith both know unequivocally that one plus one should never equal three.

When blame becomes the order of the day in the Young household for their failing marriage—blaming each other; blaming themselves—Charles and Faith each search for answers why the flame of love no longer burns brightly. In their efforts, one takes comfort from another a step too far. One chooses not to get mad, but to get even.

Dying love is a slow burn. Is it too late for Charles and Faith to fan the embers and make love rise once again from the ashes of their broken marriage? Can they find their first love again—for each other, and for God?

Book 8

By Juliette Duncan

Imprisoned by greed – redeemed by love

Sally Richardson has it all. A devout, hard-working, well-respected husband, two great kids, a beautiful home, wonderful friends. Her life is perfect. Until it isn’t.

When Brad Richardson, accountant, business owner, and respected church member, is sentenced to five years in jail, Sally is shell-shocked. How had she not known about her husband’s fraudulent activity? And how, as an upstanding member of their tight-knit community, did he ever think he’d get away with it? He’s defrauded clients, friends, and fellow church members. She doubts she can ever trust him again.

Locked up with murderers and armed robbers, Brad knows that the only way to survive his incarceration is to seek God with all his heart – something he should have done years ago. But how does he convince his family that his remorse is genuine? Will they ever forgive him?

He’s failed them. But most of all, he’s failed God. His poor decisions have ruined this once perfect family.

They’ve lost everything they once held dear. Will they lose each other as well?
