A Flash of Romance by Sharon Rene

Posted by Julie on January 11, 2018 in ACFW, encouragement, God's Word, Guest blogger, Julie Arduini, Writing |

A Flash of Romance by Sharon Rene

 

My name is Sharon Rene. In December, I published a collection of flash fiction stories on Kindle entitled A Flash of Romance. This was a new experience for me. I’ve recently had some publishing success in the world of flash fiction, having had six stories published by the Splickety Publishing Group. After a lot of thought and prayer, I decided to plunge into Kindle. And it was a plunge! I’m not a computer master, so Kindle didn’t prove to be as easy as I anticipated, but I persevered. The Kindle version is now available as well as a print version, and I’d love to share my stories with all of you.

A Flash of Romance by Sharon Rene

From Heathcliff to Santa, the heroes in A Flash of Romance will win your heart. Experience the magical world of mermaids and fairies then travel to the old west and the Roaring Twenties, all in less than seven thousand words. I am especially proud of Masada Whispers. In this story, I tell the fate of a young couple trapped in Masada surrounded by the Roman army. The tragic deaths of the Jews on Passover speaks to my heart, and I believe it will bring a tear to most eyes.

 

 

I am offering twelve signed copies of A Flash of Romance on Goodreads beginning January 8 and running until January 31, 2018. If you’re on Goodreads, please go to the giveaways page and sign up for my book.

 

My writing journey is just beginning. God is directing my every step, and offering needed encouragement. TouchPoint Press will publish my book of short stories for elementary age children tentatively entitled A Mixed Bag of God’s Grace sometime this year. I am excited that God has given me the honor to write for His little ones. What a precious audience.

My favorite genre to read, and to write, is young adult speculative. I am now working on my third novel in a young adult series. The Lord has not yet opened the door to publication for these books, but He has used flash fiction and short stories to encourage me along the way. I was surprised when my first flash fiction was accepted by Splickety, and I realized that God had open an unexpected door. God is good at that. Let me end this blog with some encouragement and one of my favorite Bible verses.

“Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen. Ephesians 3: 20-21 (NIV)

Sharon Rene loves to write speculative young adult fiction, children’s short stories, flash fiction, and devotions. She has published a collection of flash fiction on Kindle entitled A Flash of Romance. TouchPoint press will publish her book of short stories for elementary aged children tentatively titled A Mixed Bag of God’s Grace in 2018.

She is a member of ACFW and works as an executive assistant at a major corporation.  She has a Facebook page with devotions, scripture and inspirational thoughts entitled Creative Grace with Sharon Rene and her author page is also on Facebook – Sharon Rene-Author.

Sherri Stewart: A Day in the Life of a Fool

Posted by Julie on January 4, 2018 in encouragement, God's Word, Guest blogger, Julie Arduini, Life Lessons, Writing |

A Day in the Life of a Fool

Remember that verse in I Corinthians 1: 27 where God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise? I am so glad God chose me as one of His little fools.

It was colder than most January days in Calgary, Alberta—so cold that I was reluctant to drive my old Volvo too far from home, but I hated to miss the first day of the new semester. After dropping my son off at the babysitter’s, I decided it would be safer to take the subway, something I had never done before. A small voice inside reminded me that whenever I do something for the first time, I make mistakes, but I told myself that taking a subway wasn’t rocket science, was it?

I bought my ticket, but knew I would have to transfer downtown to another train that would take me to the university. I wasn’t sure how to do that, but surely someone would help.

When I arrived downtown, I jumped off the train and was waiting for the corresponding one to arrive when a thought struck me. I had left a pot of potpourri simmering on the stove. Great. Why hadn’t I thought to turn the stove off? It had been two hours, and soon the water would evaporate, the pot would catch on fire, and we’d lose everything. I thought of my poor dog as I dug a quarter out of my purse to call a neighbor with a key to my house when I realized my purse was missing. (this was before cell phones). I’d left my purse on the train. No car, no keys, one quarter.

I prayed for God’s help.

Taking a deep breath, I called my next-door neighbor who wasn’t home, but my husband was in town, which was rare since he worked for a hockey team that was always on the road. Bobby was gracious as always and didn’t reprimand me for being an idiot.

While I waited for him to pick me up, I stopped the conductor of an arriving train and told him about my purse. He said he would alert the other drivers to be on the lookout.

As Bobby and I raced toward our house, I scanned the sky for rising smoke in the northeast. Bobby reminded me that we would have to cancel our credit cards and get a locksmith to unlock my car since we didn’t have an extra key.

No smoke billowed out of the house, but I didn’t wait for the car to slow down before I jumped out, opened the garage door, and ran into the kitchen. The red light on the stove was still on, the burner under the small pot was red hot, but the potpourri floating inside the pot wasn’t simmering. I dipped my finger in the brown liquid. It was ice cold. ICE COLD.

The same God who parted the Red Sea and made the sun stand still made the liquid on a red-hot burner ice cold.

But that’s not all. A few hours after I cancelled my credit cards, I received a call from the transit company. They found my purse in a plastic bag. Someone had taken the cash, but left everything else—my passport and visa, my checkbook, credit cards, keys, and driver’s license. I called the bank to see if they would disregard my request to cancel my card,s but knew it was a lost cause. The woman at the bank said that the system had gone down after I called so my credit cards were still good.

I made a lot of mistakes on that cold January day, but God didn’t reprimand me. I was doing enough of that myself. He made simmering water cold and made the bank’s system stand still for a few hours for me. Instead of being the worst day of my life, God gave me a story to tell.

A Child’s Life of Christ: COME FLY WITH ME

Storybook #8 in Series THEY MET JESUS

 

This book centers around Jesus’ appearances to his apostles an what they did after he went back to heaven.

In storybook 8, your children meet….

 

*10 Apostles where they learn about people not being believed because what they say is too good to be true.

*Thomas where they learn that it’s okay if they are unsure if they believe in Jesus until they are older because Jesus will wait for them.

*7 Apostles where they learn some people they tell about Jesus to won’t believe, but some will.

*11 Apostles where they learn Jesus will help everyone who tries to tell Jesus about him.

*500 Witnesses where they learn they may not be the only believer in Jesus at school, even though the others don’t say so.

*Brother James where they learn sometimes children have to wait until they are grown up to find out how valuable they are.

*11 Apostles where they learn that, even though Jesus has gone back to heaven, he still loves them.

*Ruling Sadducees where they learn to decide now that, when they are grown, they will always admit believing in Jesus, even if they go to jail for saying it.

*Thaddeus where they learn to invite both children and grownups to go to church with them.

*King Jesus in Heaven where they learn what heaven is like.

 

Here is a sample from one of the chapters:

 

500 WITNESSES

 

There was Jesus standing in front of all 500 of them! At his own funeral.

 

Jesus announced that he would like to say hello to every one of them. So, they lined up, and one by one were able to talk to Jesus and touch him. “Thank you, Jesus” they all wanted to say.

 

First was Michel, one of the wise men. He was old now and happened to have been visiting in Jerusalem when Jesus had been crucified. Michel bowed to Jesus just as he had when Jesus was a toddler. “Thank you, Jesus.”

 

Here came one of the shepherds ~ now old ~ that the angels had appeared to when Jesus was born. Then some people from the wedding where he turned water to wine. “Thank you, Jesus.”

 

Then Nicodemus and Joseph who buried him. Then the woman Jesus met by the well in Samaria. Then Captain Demetrius, his maid, and the little boy Jesus healed. Then Chuza and Joanna and their little boy who Jesus healed. “Thank you, Jesus.”

 

There were people he had healed of blindness and deafness and various diseases. There were people with missing legs and hands that he made grow back, and people with shriveled legs and hands that he made fill out and whole again. “Thank you, Jesus.”

Katheryn Haddad was born in the cold north, but now lives in Arizona where she does not have to shovel sunshine. She enjoys hot weather, palm trees and cacti in her yard, and a computer with the letters worn off.
With a bachelor’s degree in English, Bible and social science from Harding University and part of a master’s degree in Bible, including Greek, from the Harding Graduate School of Theology, she also has a master’s degree in management and human relations from Abilene University.
Her newspaper column appeared for several years in newspapers in Texas and North Carolina ~ Little Known Facts About the Bible ~ and she has written for numerous Christian publications.
Currently she teaches English over the internet every morning, using the Bible as a text book. Most of her students are Muslims. She has taught some 6000 thus far, and has former students, now Christians, in hiding in Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Yemen, Somalia, Jordan, Uzbekistan, and Palestine. “They are my heroes” she declares.
She is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers, Christian Writers of the West, and is also an energetic public speaker who can touch the heart of audiences.

Defining Thankful by Sue A. Fairchild

DEFINING THANKFUL

By Sue A. Fairchild

Merriam-Webster’s dictionary describes “thankful” as being “conscious of benefit received.” For me, the definition doesn’t seem to say enough about this word. Being conscious of a benefit we have received is a good thing. It helps us to say “Thank you” and to show appreciation. It helps us not to dismiss important events in our life and assists us in seeing the good when sometimes life is just too hard. But simply being aware of the benefits in our life doesn’t seem to truly define the emotions behind the word.

When I think about all the things I’m thankful for in my life—my husband, my health, the health of my loved ones, God’s never ending blessings and His ever present care in my life—it simply is not enough to say I’m “conscious of the benefits” of each. Each thing I’m thankful for in my life affects me deeply and I want to express my joy for each of those things in the right way.

My husband loved me at my most broken stage and has helped me become the strong entrepreneur I am today with his love and never-ending support. Simply being aware of all he has done for me doesn’t begin to describe how I feel about him. Joy fills my soul when I think of him. My heart sings when I consider his sacrifices, the parents who made him who he is and the God who placed him into my life. In turn, I seek to show him how thankful I am for all he’s done, by doing things for him, verbally thanking him, and loving him in a tangible way.

When I think of my health and the health of my loved ones, I marvel at a mother who has persevered through years of debilitating illness, admire a father who worked two jobs to make ends meet despite heart issues and am proud of how I’ve battled weight loss and depression problems. Being thankful means understanding how hard it has been and yet still finding joy—being grateful—for every minute of the process. (Check out my post here about how thankful I am that my mom recently turned seventy-five!) In addition, I need to remain aware that God has placed each moment in my life as a means to grow, learn and achieve.

It’s good to be aware of our blessings. It’s right and positive to say “Thank you” at the appropriate time. But it’s so much more. It’s a feeling, deep down, that life could have possibly been better, but without the hard things, it’s difficult to recognize the good. We must not only be aware of the benefits of our life, but also seek to extend thankfulness, graciousness and admiration for everything God has placed in our lives.

 I have seen the burden God has laid on the human race. He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live. That each of them may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all their toil—this is the gift of God. I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it. (Ecclesiastes 3:10-14 NIV)

Count Your Blessings by Elle E. Kay

Count Your Blessings ♦ Elle E. Kay

 

Lately my world is crazy. We moved to a new home in October and a couple of weeks later my son moved in with his family of four, soon to be five (c-section scheduled for December 27th). Many things have fallen through the cracks and although I had this guest post scheduled and on my calendar, I forgot all about it.

 

God didn’t forget. The past week has been filled with not-so-subtle reminders of why I should count my blessings. We sung Count Your Blessings at church this past Sunday. I listened to two Sermon Audio sermons from David Peacock about gratitude and recognizing the blessings that are more difficult to accept. My struggles with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome are a blessing. My son’s difficulties and move home were blessings. Even the things that are hard and seem to be more of a curse than a blessing are often blessings.

 

Where would we learn patience if it weren’t for the trying of our faith?

 

James 1:3

“Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.”

 

How would the power of Christ rest upon us, if we weren’t weak?

 

2 Corinthians 12:9

“And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”

 

I’m not suggesting that I immediately recognize my adversities as blessings, but with God’s help and guidance, I usually find my way around to that point of view.

 

So, this past week as we left Thanksgiving behind and started looking forward to Christmas celebrations, God reminded me of the importance of giving thanks and recognizing the blessings He has bestowed on me and my family. One of those blessings is my latest novella release, Holly’s Noel, which will release on December 1, 2017 as part of the Under the Mistletoe anthology (it’s available now for pre-order). I hope you’ll check it out. It’s a romantic comedy with its share of both difficult and joyful blessings.

Elle E. Kay lives on a farmette in the Back Mountain region of Pennsylvania. She is a born-again Bible believing Christian.

Stella was her debut novel. Claudia, the next book in the Endless Mountain Series, releases on December 15, 2017, with Sofie following shortly after. Holly’s Noel will release on December 1, 2017 as part of the Under the Mistletoe anthology.

Elle writes children’s books under the pen name, Ellie Mae Kay.

Her website is updated with the latest information about her upcoming books. http://www.elleekay.com/. She also has a blog, where she writes mostly devotional posts based on traditional hymns http://www.elleekay.com/blog/.

Elle is on most social media platforms.
