News to Share


The something I have to share is the new back cover copy for my new book, “Take a Seat  on this Park Bench.” Still much to do on the book. It will probably be ready this May — I’m hoping! The text is below.

Make it a great weekend!

God Bless You!



Hanging out with friends, that’s cool. Yet in this busy and chaotic world another much more trusted friend is calling you. You may have forgotten Him. But He has not forgotten you. Now is the time friend to learn about God and experience Him in a real and authentic way.

Have you ever wanted to have just a few quality minutes to sit by yourself and reflect on your day or things that you’re passionate about? Well, here’s a way to get your wish and more. Nanci’s new book Take a Seat on This Park Bench is a unique devotional book which shares a collection of essays. The book is divided into four different sections sharing messages of strength, encouragement, well-being, and personal development. Devotional pages for reflection appear after each essay and in the back of the book. They provide you with ways to nourish your soul through reading, writing, meditating on scripture, and praying. Through the pages of the book, hang out with this trustworthy friend — 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 (ESV)

Blue Skies and a Park Bench



The words blue skies and a park bench sound wonderful — maybe even relaxing. That’s the title of my new book.  I don’t know if you’ll be able to relax  on those park benches but you certainly will be able to reflect on how things are going in your life. That’s the purpose of the book besides bringing information to you.

Book Update:

Next week I’m conducting two focus group studies. We’ll discuss the book as it is thus far and recommend any changes. We’ll probably discuss the title and subtitle as well. Today I Googled the title and found it wasn’t taken so that’s a relief.  And since the book is a collection of essays, I do have a few more to write! After that it’s onward to discuss the book’s cover, editor, and publisher.  I’ll keep you all in the loop.

Hope your are enjoying blue skies where you are today. We have our first snow fall coming later on. Oh Joy!

Make it  a great day!

God Bless You!
