Looking Out The Window: June Foster Talks About Her New Book, A Harvest of Blessings. Gives Away An E-book




A Warm Welcome to June Foster

To enter to win the e-book of A Harvest of Blessings leave a comment and an email address below.

June shares one of her favorite Bible verses and a delicious recipe to nourish us body and soul.

"For I am convinced that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor things present nor things to come, not powers, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 8:38-39

Thank you for the comforting verse.

Chicken-Vegetable Dish

I love this recipe because it's low carb. It provides both protein and vegetables, and it's easy to make.

Chicken-Vegetable Dish
4 chicken breast halves
Salt and pepper
2 tablespoons oil
1 1/4 cups chicken broth
2 cups broccoli florets
1 medium yellow squash, sliced

1. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large skillet and brown chicken on both sides. Add chicken broth; cover and cook 15 to 20 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.

2. Add vegetables and sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Cover and cook 5-6 minutes or until vegetables are just crisp tender.

I add Swiss Cheese toward the end which made it even more yummy.





About A Harvest of Blessings

If there's one thing Nadia Maguire knows, Jon Maguire robbed her of a godly marriage and left her in financial ruin. The night he was killed in an accident, guilt threatened to suffocate her. She wasn't sorry he died.

When Nadia accidentally sits on a stranger's lap in the graveyard where Jon is buried, she's horrified to learn the good-looking guy with salt and pepper hair is her new boss.

Jared Abrams is a widower who longs to move on. He's intrigued by the beautiful woman who puts God first in her life. But as their friendship grows, an unexpected obstacle separates them—his daughter Sarah. No one can replace her mother. Especially not Nadia Maguire whose son harmed her in high school.

If Nadia can't find the funds to get her house ready to sell, she'll have to balance two jobs with no time left to nurture a relationship with the man she loves. Will she and Jared find a Harvest of Blessings, or a season of drought?


Excerpt

Talking to God brought perspective. She rose, stepped backward a few steps, eyes on the imposing head stone, and lowered to the seat she'd occupied only moments ago.

"Oh, pardon me." A man said.

Instead of the cold stone, her body met the firm, warm flesh of another. Nadia shrieked and jumped up, twirling around to see whose lap she'd sat on.

A tall, muscular man with light blue eyes and graying salt and pepper hair bolted from his perch on the bench.

Nadia's shaking hand gripped the base of her throat. "I'm so sorry. Visiting my husband's grave. Thought I was alone."

"No, please forgive me." The handsome man ran a hand through his short hair. "My wife's grave is over there." He pointed to the left. "I was lost in my memories."

Though Nadia's cheeks burned hot, the man's kind expression said he understood. "The fault is mine."
The middle-aged guy, a light covering of whiskers on his face, shuffled from one foot to the other. Then he chuckled. "Actually, I can't complain. It's not every day a good-looking woman sits on my lap."

Whoa. Was this guy flirting with her? Well, she wanted nothing to do with it.
