Looking out the Window: Lisa Lickel Shares A Devotional And Talks About Her New Release, Everything About Us, Book Eight in the Ponder This Series. Gives Away an E-book of Everything About You

A Warm Welcome To Lisa Lickel To win an e-Book of Everything About You, the prequel to Everything About Us leave a comment and an email address below. Lisa's Devotional Truth Philippians 4:8 (NIV) Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. For the past few years I’ve thought about truth a lot. Our contemporary first-world culture is inundated with information. In societies that treasure personal rights, we extend that right to express ourselves, often in words that irritate and vehemently disagree with the expressions of others.

A Warm Welcome to Anita Klumpers Anita shares a favorite Bible verse and a yummy recipe handed down from her mother. See below. Hi Anita, lots of writers loved to read as children. What about you? If so, what did you read? YES! I vividly remember reading Little House in the Big Woods in first grade. I moved up to the Bobbsey Twins, Happy Hollisters and Trixie Belden, Nancy Drew books by the truckload. And the biographies my dad made me read to balance out the mystery stories. What inspired you to write this particular book? My editor asked for a novella based on the virtue “Whatever is of good repute” from Philippians 4:8. While visiting Andrew Jackson’s home in Nashville, we watched a duel reenactment, and the idea was born! What do you love about this book? And what do you hope readers will tell others about it?
