Christmas Messages

  Christmas shines with God’s grace, forgiveness of sins and salvation. It’s difficult to fathom an unconditional love so great, or ever repay it. All I can do each year is let it fill my heart with joy as I stand in awe of it and accept God’s gift. A Miraculous Birth    Photo courtesy Photobucket “God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary.” Luke 1: 26 - 27 “...the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God. You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever; his kingdom will never end.” Luke 1: 30 - 33 A Gospel of love “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” “Jesus replied, “ ‘Love the Lor

Looking Out the Window: Sherri Wilson Johnson Loving The Book Tour - To Laugh Once More

A Warm Welcome to Sherri Wilson Johnson Hi Sherri, thanks for bringing your tour to Peering Through Life's Window. First, tell us a little about yourself. Besides being a writer, I'm also a speaker and I freelance as a virtual assistant for two clients. I love to read and write and spend time with my family. I love to go to church, and I love to make people laugh. My favorite vacation spot is the beach, and whenever I get the opportunity, I go to theme parks and ride roller coasters. Tell us about your latest book To Laugh Once More is the sequel to my first novel, To Dance Once More (which re-released December 12th). It is set in Florida and Georgia in 1895. In this novel, Lydia and Hamilton have been married for several years, and things aren't going quite like Lydia had hoped. She loves Hamilton, but she's bored with being a keeper of the home. They go through some major trials which seem quite insurmountable. They struggle to keep their marriage

Looking Out the Window: Best-selling, Award-winning Author Anita Higman Talks about Her New Book, A Question of Destiny, and Shares a Beautiful Devotional.

  A Warm Welcome to Anita Higman Anita shares a wonderful devotional about something the world needs so badly. She’ll give away two digital copies of her new book, A Question of Destiny , and a mini spa packet! That Glorious Gift of Kindness By Anita Higman Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. Ephesians 4:32 (NIV) Oh, how I love presents. Don’t you? Little packages tucked into one’s mailbox. Or enormous presents with big bows that sit around the Christmas tree. Or unexpected gifts that arrive with a hug. I love all kinds. And tearing open the package with all that crisp decorative paper is fun too. Or lifting the pastel froufrou tissue out of the dainty gift bag. What utter joy!  But the type of present that I enjoy even more, is a gift called kindness. It is a generous offering from someone’s heart. These kindness donors don’t have to give, but they do it anyway, even though this quieter gift might

Tyrell stepped out of the booth and glanced at the cloudy sky. No sign of the sun, and no sign of God’s face smiling down ready to do battle for him. -- From With Music in Their Hearts. Have you ever wondered why God allowed you to go through that hard/dark/difficult period in your life? Has life always been the proverbial bowl of cherries? Of course not! It just seems worse for those of us who serve a God in heaven because we falsely assume life will always be full of sunshine.  Tyrell Walker, the protagonist in my WWII novel, lost his parents as a child. That’s a terrible blow to any child, but God had plans for him. Lovi

Looking Out the Window: Author, Speaker and Acquisitions Editor Paula Mowery Talks about Legacy and Love, Her New Book

          A Warm Welcome to Paula Mowery Paula will give away an e-book of Legacy and Love To enter to win leave a comment and an e-mail address below Hi Paula, tell us a little about yourself. When I look at the title of your blog, Peering Through Life’s Window, it reminds me of one of the roles I have in life – pastor’s wife. It’s been said that we pastor families live in glass houses. I’m glad I don’t really reside in a glass house. I would hate for everyone to see the dust and laundry mountains that are a part of our life. But, I guess this is just proof that we are just normal people who have been called into a different vocation. I’m a proud mama to a daughter who is a sophomore with Liberty University online. She is studying to go into children's ministry. I had the privilege and honor to homeschool her through all twelve years. I’m a published author and acquisitions editor for Prism Book Group. God has called me to write and for that reason, I
