Favorite Scripture
Now also when I am old and gray headed, O God, do not forsake me, Until I declare Your strength to this generation, Your power to everyone who is to come. Psalm 71:18
This is one of my favorite scriptures. I pray this almost every day that God would use me to declare His strength to this generation and His power to everyone who is to come.

I believe books can leave behind a legacy after we’re gone. Not only do I pray that my books will touch those who read them now, while I’m alive, but even after I’m gone, they will point to the Lord of Lord and the King of Kings. What a blessing to be able to minister His love, His grace and His power after I’m in heaven! Th…

The Questions
Have you ever been to a rodeo?
If so, what's your favorite part? 
Good morning, Gail. Thank you for having me on your blog today. 

It's my pleasure. Tell us what's happening with your books.

What an exciting time this past month has been…experiencing the release of my second book of The Roped Series, TWISTED.

My office is still buried in the clutter a release creates. I keep hoping the good housecleaning fairy will appear and sweep away the mess, but Crandall, Texas, doesn’t seem to be on her work list. Yet!

LOL. I don't think Georgia's on her list either. Let's talk about your writing. When did you begin and why? 

I must confess I was a slothful student, reluctant reader, but an active artist. Always drawing on everything, participating in decorating anything that stood still lo…

Looking Out the Window: Sarah Ruut Shares an Inspirational Devotional

A Warm Welcome to Sarah Ruut



How to Heal the Problem that Separates Us
As I walked down the hallway past my daughter’s bedroom door, I noticed the distinctive smell of a struck match. Curious what was going on (since she was probably one or two at the time and didn’t have access to matches), I pushed open her door. There in the middle of her floor sat her older brother, an open box of matches before him and one black-tipped match lying on the carpet.

I tried to keep panic from my voice. “What are you doing?”

“I wanted to see how these work.”

Oh, my…

I proceeded to explain—again—why we don’t play with matches. He acknowledged that the flame had startled him, and he’d dropped the match. And I swallowed my panic yet again to gently explain to him what could have happened when he dropped that match! (Thankfully, the flame died before the match hit the carpet.)

His eyes grew huge as he realized what he might have caused, and my sweet preschooler said, “I’m sorry, Mommy!”

I gave him a hug …
