We Are Not Alone by Toni Shiloh

Thankful post –

In my latest novel, Buying Love, Nina Warrenton deals with the feeling of isolation and aloneness. It’s a prevalent problem among people, especially during the holidays. However, as believers, I wanted to remind others (as well as myself) that we are not alone.

“Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.” – 1 Corinthians 12:27 KJV

Y’all, we are not alone. The moment we accepted Christ as our Savior, we entered into a community. One where there’s a place for anyone who chooses to accept the invitation. One that does not care what you look like or what you’ve done. No, we aren’t perfect, but we have been made perfect by the Love of Christ.

This Thanksgiving, I’m taking the time to be thankful for my salvation and all the blessings that come with it. Knowing that I can call upon another believer if I need counsel. Knowing that if I’m lost or in need of guidance, I have access to the Word. Knowing that no matter what I go through, I have the Great Comforter to see me through it. There are many blessings and benefits of being a believer.

Let’s share the Good News with others. The holiday season is not a time to be alone. If they don’t accept the invite to Christ’s table, invite them to yours.

Be blessed!

Buying Love by Toni Shiloh

Will money ruin everything?

Nina Warrenton is ready for the next step in her life plan—marriage, but there is one problem. No one has proposed! Taking matters into her hand, she places an ad in the newspaper hoping to entice a willing stranger. But when she begins to fall for the small-town chef, she realizes how much she wants him to love her and not her money.

Dwight Williams needs fast cash to save the family restaurant. When he sees Nina’s monetary offer for a husband, he goes for it. He’s determined to save the legacy his dad left him, but can he let it go to prove his love for her?

Can Nina and Dwight find true love, once money has entered the equation?

A2Z Meme: If We Waited

Posted by Julie on June 12, 2012 in About Me, encouragement, God's Word, Julie Arduini, Life Lessons |

This little ‘ole meme is about to bite the dust! Today we blog about the letter “W.”

For me, it’s about waiting.

Oh, how I hate it.

I joke that grocery stores should have some kind of scan that if the lines are too busy, we can kind of wave with our groceries, say, “catch you next time” and pay for those things when the line is smaller. Where did I get that idea? Waiting in line.

I also call myself Sarah, Plan B, after Sarah in the Bible. She couldn’t wait for God to fulfill His promises over Abraham regarding him being the Father of Nations, so she took matters into her own hands. It only added drama, grief, and regret.

WAITING would have been WISER.

I couldn’t take the two week wait my fiance and I had before he moved closer to me. I’m the one that can handle things when it is long off, but when I can see the light at the end of the tunnel, I want the waiting to be done, or I’m tempted to bolt. I was the same way with my second c-section.

As I learn more about myself, read, and mentor others, I believe wait is a bigger topic/issue in our lives than we pay attention to. I tell people Judge Judy would be out of business if the world waited. Think about it.

If we waited, relationships wouldn’t sour and become awkward because things moved too fast.

If we waited, we’d have financial provision instead of borrowing from friends or taking on debt we can’t re-pay.

If we waited, we’d have quality people doing top notch work for us and our homes.

If we waited, we’d have resisted saying that thing, throwing that punch, or doing that deed we can’t take back.

Those are the themes for Judge Judy and the like, and it’s a good eye opener for me.

Waiting has purpose.

Our souls have holes that long to be filled.

And I’m pretty sure if we waited and asked the Creator of our soul for His opinion on how to fill that gap, we’d have a lot less regret.

And a lot less court TV shows.

WFW: Peace. Be. Still.

Posted by Julie on July 20, 2011 in About Me, encouragement, God's Word, Julie Arduini, Life Lessons, surrender |

It’s Word Full Wednesday! This is a day where you post a verse from the Bible in order to give God glory. Images are welcome too. I can’t count the times where a verse and picture were exactly what I needed. Once your post is up link up over at the Internet Cafe. By the way, I’m at the Cafe this week serving up as your marriage barista. Visit me, won’t you?









But God, what about the money we need for…

Peace, be still.

But God, I’m so worried about…

Peace, be still.

But God, that person isn’t…

Peace, be still.

But God, my marriage…

Peace, be still.

But God, the kids…
