Linda Shares a Devotional based on a passage from Hosea
Hosea Chapter 12 talks about Jacob's journey, how God called him and blessed him though he'd been a deceiver, how he wrestled with the angel until he submitted.

Jacob's family was riddled with strife. With two wives, sisters who obviously had serious jealousy issues, and two concubines who squabbled as well, and twelve sons who fought continuously. So fierce was there jealousy, they plotted to murder their little brother. Joseph's story is familiar. God used the dysfunction of a family to save a nation. Family rife is as old as Cain and Abel and sometimes with just as serious consequences.

In Hosea’s Heart, my main character, Aubrey Beaumont, worried for his children because of his addicted wife’s choices. Darlene became an overachiever, Paul excelled in golf and sought a…

Hi Dave, first, tell us a little bit about yourself.

I’m 60, married for 32 years, and I have 3 children and 6 grandchildren. I’ve spent the last 40 years working an equal time-on/off schedule, drilling oil and gas wells all over the world. When you hear someone say, “It’s on a slow boat from China,” I’ve been on one. Four years ago my relief and I moved a semi-submersible rig from Shanghai, China, to the Gulf of Mexico, 15,300 miles, in six months, on one tank of diesel fuel—4 million gallons.

Wow! What an exciting career. Lots of writers loved to read as children. How about you? If so, what did you read?

I survived through 12 years of informal education, and graduated, without reading a book. Not one. Not until a friend introduced me to Louis L’Amour after I graduated high school did I develop a love for reading. Since then, I’…

Congratulations, Lillian, on being a finalist for the prestigious Carol Award. Tell us about Puzzle House.

Puzzle House is the book I never wanted to write!

What??? Let me explain. Rachel Summers, the main character in my new book, Puzzle House, has brain tumors due to Neurofibromatosis Type 2.

Neuro…What?

That’s what I said when my doctor told me I had brain tumors because of something called Neurofibromatosis Type 2 (NF2 for short) in 2012. The tumors are almost always benign, but there’s two meanings for benign. One being non-cancerous and the other being harmless. The good news is that my tumors are not cancerous, the bad news is they are definitely not harmless.
That’s why I say Puzzle House is the book I never wanted to write. I would never have written it if it weren’t for the brain tumors. But Romans 8: 28 promises that God works all thi…
