Welcome back, Sharon Srock, to Home Thoughts

Happy Monday, readers. First before I forget, will anybody be in southern Ohio this Saturday, 4-27? I will be speaking at the Brown County Public Library (east of Cincinnati) on “Creative Inspiration” from 1:30 until 3:30. The address is 200 W. Grant Ave, Georgetown, Ohio. I will be selling/signing books. Please stop out if you’ll be in the area and say “hi.”GE

Secondly, I’d like to welcome back Sharon Srock to my blog. Sharon has a new book out, The Women of Valley View: Terri. perf5.500x8.500.inddYou can win a free copy of Terri if you answer the question at the end of the interview. Here’s the blurb: Despite a bustling day care center and a new foster child, Terri Hayes hungers for a family of her own. Then a plumbing mishap leaves her homeless and questioning God’s plan. Steve Evans’s gracious offer of his basement apartment as a temporary solution is an answered prayer.

Steve is a successful writer and a good father, but Terri is horrified when Steve’s book research leads him to a harsh confrontation with the parents of her foster child.  She needs to distance herself from Steve, but her efforts fall short as his two scheming daughters plot to make Terri their new stepmother. Will harsh words and sneaky plans drive Kelsey’s family further apart and put a wedge between Terri and Steve? Or does God have another plan in store? Here’s a free download to introduce the women of the series: http://bitly.com/SmQmUs

  1. I feel very strongly that God led me in a path for the occupation that I ended up doing in my life. It was the farthest thing from my mind. I had completely different plans for myself. As my life progressed, everything fell into place to a career I had never expected for myself and I have had the great joy of searching family genealogies for people and helping them find and reunite with their families, both living and deceased. They are all so happy to find their Swiss, German and Polish roots, kind of gives you the feelings of Alex Haley in Roots. It is so rewarding and I know that what I had planned for me would never have given me the joy that this has. And I know it was all “His” doing!

  2. My life is really on a totally different path for the past several months. My mom has passed & now my dad has been very ill and is living with my husband & I. I am just getting over breast cancer and I could feel bad or mad but I just want to do the best I can for my dad. He is 80 an fragil. So I’m where I should be at this moment. Easy or hard. One day at a time…

    • Pam, thanks so much for dropping by Home Thoughts. I too was a caregiver for both my parents for several years. And our own health problems often adds a new challenge to our daily struggle. But He will never leave you. I will pray for your restoration to perfect health. best regards…

    • no apology necessary! never turn down an invite to go out to dinner. after cooking for my beloved hubs for 40 years in June, I’m willing to go out often. Trouble is, hubs loved to come home to home cooking after working all day. It’s the “what to cook” dilemma that has me stymied.
