Hi, Gail. Please let me begin by thanking you for having me here. I appreciate the opportunity to share with your readers.
It's my pleasure to have you. Tell us a little about yourself.

I am the wife of one, the mother of two, and the grandmother of five. Retired, I enjoy spending time with my husband and Zoe, our Jack Russell “Terrorist.” I have a BA in English/Education and have taught children from kindergarten to high school age. My last job was in the international sales department of a medical device manufacturer.

Were you an avid reader as a child? If so, what did you read?

Oh, yes! I read everything I could find. I particularly enjoyed mysteries and tales of adventure. We lived in England during part of my childhood and got hooked on the Fantastic Five series. Two of my other favorites were Heidi and Robinson Crusoe.

It's always interest…

June shares a devotional about faith that David Maguire, the hero in The Long Way Home, can relate to. He learns what real faith is. He has no other choice when kidnappers leave him and the heroine for dead in a Pennsylvania forest.

Lately I've lifted a lot of prayers up to the Lord and in many cases, I've received a glorious yes. Which of course delights me, but it's also got me to thinking. Thinking about not just the answered prayer, but my feelings and my faith before the prayer was answered.

The period of time before we get an answer, be it yes, no, or wait, is precious…

Looking Out The Window: Kathleen Neely Introduces Her Upcoming Book, The Street Singer. Shares a Devotional.

A Warm Welcome To Kathleen Neely
Hi Kathleen, thanks for visiting and sharing your devotional about the New Year
Here it is, mid-January, two weeks into the new year. If I’d made New Year’s resolutions, this is about the time I’d be feeling the disappointment of breaking them. As 2018 stepped aside and ushered in a new year, I was reminded that time is a tool of man. Using God’s creation, we divided it into years, months, weeks, days, hours. I could go on, but you get the picture. We look at the changing of a year as a monumental event, but the Bible has something different to say.

God’s word shows time as a continuous phenomenon. He says that his mercies are new every morning (Lam.3:23). He says that the old has passed away (2Cor.5:17). And He says that He is making all things new (Rev.21:5).

There isn’t an isolated moment in time when we receive His mercies. Instead, they are bestowed on us daily. God knows how hard it is to stay the course, whatever your goals may be. He knows we …
