Hi!

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!

Jesus Calling: A Powerful Thought for Today

cross-66700__340

While the new devotional book that I’m writing now is different from author Sarah Young’s devotional Jesus Calling : Enjoying Peace in His Presence, read the entry below and think about your present concerns. And as you do, I hope you’ll be lifted up into high places with Him.

Make it a great day!

God bless you!

WHEN YOU ARE PLAGUED by a persistent problem—one that goes on and on—view it as a rich opportunity. An ongoing problem is like a tutor who is always by your side. The learning possibilities are limited  only to your willingness to be teachable. In faith, thank Me for your problem. Ask me to open your eyes and your heart to all that I am accomplishing through this difficulty. Once you have become grateful for a problem, it loses its power to drag you down. On the contrary, your thankful attitude will lift you up into heavenly places with Me. From this perspective, your difficulty can be seen as a slight, temporary distress that is producing for you a transcendent Glory never to crease! – Isaiah 30:20-21, 2 Corinthians 4:17 (AMP)

Nanci Gives Insight into Her Writing

fall leaves for blog

I’ve always loved words. I think it’s because I’ve always recognized their ability to bring about change, give hope, and inspire. My strength and versatility as a writer comes from a combination of elements. These elements include: my creativity, life experiences, variety of job opportunities held in management and otherwise, my interests, and my God-given talent. Having a sensitive yet outgoing personality has also helped my writing to be fresh, funny, tender, and informative when it needed to be. I’m a creative person by nature and I’ve also been blessed with training for my creative abilities in both music and design.

What has helped me to enjoy my craft and be a really good writer? Studying hard and earning my degree in Promotional Communications gave me a great foundation in writing.  My education helped me to be detail-oriented, ask questions, and make sure my facts were accurate. However, this is the most important thing I’ve learned: The secret to being a great writer is to be as concise as possible. Make each word really count. That’s what I strive to do.

Writing my first book “Fresh Hope … Cleveland”  and this blog, have been my greatest accomplishments to date. Currently I’m working on my second manuscript, a devotional book entitled “Blue Skies and a Park Bench.” I’ll be sharing more about this new book in future posts.

I hope you are enjoying this wonderful day!

God Bless You!
