Blog Tour…coming soon! :D

Hey everyone! Guess what? A blog tour for my book, Racing for Time is coming soon!

racingfortimegraphic

If you’d like to enter to do a book review, author interview(that’s me 😉 or a book spotlight, enter one or both of the surveys below.

The entries for the blog tour end this month, January 31, 2017! (Happy New Year by the way!) And the actual blog tour is from February 6-11, so that’s why I’ll need your entries and such by January 31. 🙂 Then they will close.

 

Synopsis for my book:

After a frightening car crash that lands Janefer and her best friend Melanie in the hospital, Janefer is set on bringing the culprit to justice. When Melanie is found to be missing, Janefer is even more determined to discover the person behind it all.

Through a maze of lies and deceit, spiritual questions arise, leaving her confused and troubled. As Janefer races to gather clues leading to Melanie, she gradually learns to trust God with her life, no matter what the outcome.

Can Janefer find out the truth before Melanie is hurt–or worse?

Time is ticking.

Y’all excited?! Here we go! 😀

New Brunswick Photos!

Hey everyone! I got my camera back a little while ago, and now will share a few photos with you all! 🙂 Possibly a few more to come later! 🙂

Day #11: DOC Blog Linkup!

Merry Christmas everyone!! It’s the 24th! 😀 And also, tomorrow is the ending of both mine and Blessing’s giveaways, so if you want to enter Blessing’s go HERE! If you’d like to enter my giveaway, go HERE!

Now, moving on to today’s post! 🙂 image1

I could’ve gone to DIY Christmas Cards, but since tomorrow is when my card giveaway ends, I guess I’ll do it then. Today, I’m going to be sharing a Christmas message.

Every year, Christmas is exciting, right? I like giving gifts to people, and receiving them, but somehow giving is more fun, isn’t it?

It can be hard to keep the real reason of celebrating Christmas at the center of celebrating. Jesus Christ. The “Christ” in Christmas, in which some people don’t even say. They may say, “Happy Holidays!” Or on signs, “Merry X-mas!” Why’s that? Maybe it’s because people don’t want to offend others by saying Merry Christmas. Is that what our world is coming to?

 And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.  For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.  And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.” And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,

“Glory to God in the highest,
    and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”

This great news is JESUS CHRIST! 😀 And it can be hard to celebrate Him as the center of all, especially with Christmas chaos and unwrapping gifts, etc., but maybe we should really try to put Him at the center.

He came out of really great love for us and ended up dying on the cross to save us from our sins. He made Himself lowly, coming as a baby, being 100% man, yet 100% God!

Let’s thank Him for His love not only this season, but for the rest of our lives!

Day #10: DOC Blog Linkup!

Hey everyone, can you believe that it’s Christmas Eve tomorrow? Amazing. It’s the tenth day of Christmas! unnamed

(Haven’t used this one yet) 😉

Today will be good Christmas movies and movies to watch around Christmas (although you can watch them other times during the year too. 🙂

snowcapped A Snowcapped Christmas:

Claire Benton is a figure skater who is broken on the inside and out. Driven to the brink by her coach, she is forced to spend the weeks leading up to Christmas in the picturesque mountain regions of Western Canada at a sports rehabilitation center. While resting, Claire meets Paul, a single father and former Canadian hockey player. Forced to retire early from the game due to an injury, Paul now spends his time raising his daughter while running the local ice fishing and tackle shop. This unlikely duo locks horns only to discover they have more in common than they thought. A true man of the Canadian north, Paul teaches Claire all the activities that personify a Canadian winter – from snowmobiling and ice fishing to chopping down a real Christmas tree for the holidays.

On her part, Claire encourages Paul – who has not played a game of hockey since being forced to retire – back onto the ice. Together with his former hockey teammates, Paul rouses the town’s Christmas spirit when, on Christmas Eve, they engage in a truly Canadian tradition of playing a game of hockey on the ice covered lake. Paul and his daughter’s Christmas is complete when Claire returns to the mountains having learned that there is more to life than competition. (Wikipedia) 

I watched this movie at my cousin’s house not too long ago, and it is a good, clean movie.
Rating: 7/10?

 

a_december_bride_2016_12642750

I personally have not seen this movie, but my sister has, and she said it’s good, so I’ll go by her word. 😉

Layla accompanies Seth to her cousin’s wedding, and everyone is surprised when she announces they’re engaged. They are forced to keep up the pretense, and as they spend more time together, they find themselves feeling something very real.

 

beyondthemask Beyond the Mask. SO good! Awesome movie.

The film follows William Reynolds, a former assassin for the British East India Company. To redeem his past and earn the heart of the woman he loves, he must aid in the cause of the colonists during the American Revolution. (Wikipedia) 

 

download The Identical. I have watched this movie more than once, and it is a good, clean movie! Watch it. haha. Nine or Ten/ 10

After William and Helen Hemsley give birth to identical twin boys, the brothers are unknowingly separated at birth during the Great Depression. Drexel Hemsley becomes an iconic 1950s rock and roll star, while Ryan Wade, born Dexter Hemsley, struggles to balance his love for music and pleasing his father. The Reverend Reece Wade and his wife, Louise, are sure their adopted son has been gifted and called by God to be a preacher. But Ryan challenges his parents’ vision for his life, and unflinchingly chooses to launch his own music career with his best friend, Dino. Encouraged by his wife, Jenny, and employer, Avi, Ryan embarks on an unpredictable, provocative path – performing the legendary music of Drexel Hemsley in sold out venues all across the country. As the brothers’ destinies intertwine, Ryan discovers that Drexel is his twin brother. (Wikipedia)

 

I am going to leave it off here you guys. 🙂 See you tomorrow!

Merry Christmas!
