I Made Some Changes

Hi!

I gave the back cover copy for my new book another whirl. See what you think.

More Precious Than Gold

Have you ever thought that perhaps God wants to do a greater work in your heart instead of just fixing your problems? Or have you ever wanted to know God in a more meaningful way? “More Precious Than Gold” is Nanci’s new devotional book. Thirty-one essays make up this unique collection. Each one shares God’s heart for you including messages on: Happy Habits, Perfect Love, The 5 Love Languages, Gratitude, Things Happen for You, Mental Tenacity ~ Strong-Minded Faith, Waiting, Wholeness ▪ Healing, Find the Gift, Purpose, Get Wisdom, The Green Bean Club and more.

The four sections of the book share things everyone needs – strength and encouragement along with wisdom for your well-being and personal growth. It’s simple. Open your heart through reading, writing, and meditating. Then, tune out the noise of our culture and the expectations of others to reflect (consider, think about, or ponder) the goodness already present in your life. Learn how the kind of reflection – self-reflection – that the book shares (plus other information in the Spiritual Growth section) can help you have more peace and a lot more joy. In fact, that’s the way God intended for us to live.

So, dear friend, through the pages of the book, come and spend time with the most trustworthy friend of all — God. You’ll not only learn about Him, but you’ll find He’s a God who loves you and longs for you to draw near to Him.

Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you.

James 4:8a – English Standard Version

Make it a great day!

God Bless You!

I Made a Decision ~ Book News

Hi!

I thought about this for only a minute. Okay. My new book will be done soon — before the end of the year. But I think it would get lost in all the hoopla of the holidays if I released it in December. So, my new book “More Precious Than Gold” will be released in early 2020. That way everyone will be able to appreciate all the information contained with in it’s 200 pages and there won’t be any competition from all the advertising and shopping that is done during the holiday season.

The book is 8″ X 10″ in size and contains 31 essays all with the goal of bringing you closer to a God who loves you and longs for you to draw near to Him. There are some interesting facts too in the book where you’ll learn a bit more about our culture. There’s quite a lot packed into the text. Therefore, you don’t want to miss this special book.

In the introduction of the book I take you on a Book Tour. There I encourage each reader to use a journal as you spend time reading it. You don’t have to buy a journal.  In fact, my first journal was 15 pages or so of lined notebook paper tied with a pretty ribbon. Use what you have at home and make one! Get creative!  There are also places within the book where you can journal and spill out your heart as well.

And finally friends, let me encourage you today. If you have been praying and asking God for important things that you need — a job, a wife/husband, a car, a way to afford a college education, friends, more money to help feed your children — keep on praising God. God is working right now even though you cannot see what He is doing. For while you wait, God works!

Make it a great weekend! We’ll chat again!

God Bless You!

Did You Know ~ I’ve written my 2nd book?

Hi Friends!

Hope you are keeping cool in this hot, muggy weather.

Yes, it’s true. My second book will hopefully be out this fall. It’s way different than my first book, “Fresh Hope … Cleveland.” This time I’ve written a cool devotional book.  Below is the back cover copy which will tell you a lot more about the book.

Enjoy your weekend.

God bless you!

Nanci’s Devotional Book

 More Precious Than Gold

Words of Strength, Encouragement, and Wisdom

In this busy and chaotic world a loving and trustworthy friend is calling you. You may have forgotten Him. But He hasn’t forgotten you. Now is the time, friend, to learn about God and experience Him in a real and authentic way.

“More Precious Than Gold” is Nanci’s new devotional book. It’s a unique collection of 31 essays sharing God’s heart (His perspective) on everyday issues that we all deal with including messages on: Happy Habits, Perfect Love, The 5 Love Languages, Gratitude, Mentality Tenacity ~ Strong-Minded Faith, Waiting, Wholeness ▪ Healing, Find the Gift, Take a Drink of Great Happiness,  Things Happen for You, Get Wisdom, Purpose, The Green Bean Club + more.

It’s simple. Nourish your soul through reading, writing, meditating on scripture, and praying. Then, take a few minutes to tune out the noise of our culture and the expectations of others to reflect [consider, think about, or ponder] the goodness already present in your life: Learn to let go of all the rest. Maybe you remember? It was 1964. The Beatles were new here on the scene. And you? You talked with your Aunt Mary on her back porch. She listened. That kept the blues away and there was no need for counseling or medication. Today, everything is different and the hurried-pace of life creates stress that drains us all. That’s why you need the kind of reflection, self-reflection, that the book shares. It can help you live smarter and with a whole lot more joy.

So, dear friend, through the pages of the book, come and spend time with the most trustworthy friend of allGod. You’ll not only learn about Him, but you’ll find He’s a God who loves you and longs for you to draw near to Him.

Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you.

A Little More About My Devotional Book: Take A Seat On This Park Bench

Hi! Happy Tuesday to You! Thanks for coming by today!

Today I’m sharing what you’ll see on the back cover of my new book. It will give you an idea what the book’s about.

Back Cover Copy

 Take a Seat on This Park Bench: Essays for Strength, Encouragement, and Healthy Living with Devotional Pages to Help You Grow Closer to God

One night I heard a Christian psychiatrist being interviewed on TV. He was asked if more people today are depressed and go for counseling than say 40 – 50 years ago. Without blinking an eye the doctor answered “yes” to both parts of the question. He went on to say that one of the reasons for the depression and the increased need for counseling was that we no longer take time to reflect on our lives. The word reflect grabbed my attention. As a result, I was inspired to combine contemporary informative topics into a new book that also presents spiritual truths to help you grow closer to God.

In Take a Seat on This Park Bench you’ll be encouraged to explore your faith through a series of essays and descriptive devotionals. Each devotional is written just as if you were sitting on a park bench. I chose a park bench because the outdoors and a bench are great places to relax and enjoy God’s creations. They’re also fabulous places to get away from the busyness of life and reflect on the goodness of God in your life.  Here you can listen closely for God’s voice. Why? That’s because only God has the answers that you need.

Take a Seat on This Park Bench and you’ll be refreshed mentally and spiritually while you sit, read, and reflect. And without a doubt you’ll learn more about God’s character and His great love for you. Each essay and devotional share messages of strength, encouragement, and healthy living ideas. Take a Seat on This Park Bench and gain some new perspectives for your life from these and other essays including:

Things Happen For You, Waiting, Mental Tenacity, Even in the Storm, On Your Knees, Gratitude, Take a Drink of Great Happiness, Right Thinking, Wholeness ▪ Healing, Happy Habits, It’s What’s in Your Heart, Get Wisdom, Kindness, On Love and the Five Love Languages, Purpose, The Green Bean Club, and more!

Make it a great day!

5 Great Things to Know About My New Book

 

Before I share some of the great things about my new book, I think it would be fitting to share the title and subtitle with you.

Title: Take A Seat On This Park Bench

Subtitle: Essays for Strength, Encouragement, and Healthy Living with Devotional Pages to Help You Grow Closer to God

Tomorrow (we are Tuesday people, remember?) I’ll share what’s going to be on the back cover of the book. But for now, here are a few things you should know about this book:

  1. Yes, Take A Seat On This Park Bench is a special devotional book.
  2. All the essays are grouped together for strength, encouragement, well-being, and personal growth.
  3. My book offers some interesting essays on a variety of subjects that will inform and educate you the reader.
  4. The book has a few areas for you to write or respond to scripture. However, I do recommend that everyone who reads or studies this book use a journal. That will make what you learn even more powerful.
  5. Here’s the most important point that you should know. You’ll find the book shares how to know Christ as your Savior. I believe this will be a great book for those who have a belief in God — but don’t yet have a personal relationship with Jesus.

See you tomorrow when I post the back cover copy of the book!

Make the last minutes of your Labor Day great!

God Bless You!
