Lets be Honest….


Hello Dear friends,

I haven’t been writing here or on www.deeplyrootedinhim.wprdpress.com for several reasons…‬. I have been very busy catching up on the ‪‎”Deeply Rooted In Him” – Book, which will be the next one I will Publish. I was stuck with a particular chapter for a little bit. Along with fighting personal battles: sickness, depression, and loneliness. I know all the Bible verses and but you have to choose joy vs sadness and that you have to stay tough. Even though I feel like I’ve been beaten up by circumstances, people, the devil over the many years I’ve lived. The Devil comes only to Steal from you, to Kill you , and to Destroy You! But I  (Jesus) comes to bring you Life and to Bring it Abundantly! ~John 10:10

I don’t know id you are anything like me but I hate being sick I really really Hate it! I feel so limited  and restricted from so many things I would rather be doing. However, it has given me the opportunity to gather my self control (because let’s be honest we all lose it at times and believe the Devils lies that we aren’t good enough, that the world is against us etc.) I needed this time to help me refocus my energy and mind towards God so the can put on the armor that I’m supposed to wear .

 Whole Armor of God

(Ephesians 6)

And to keep fighting through life’s challenges. I wasn’t going to say any of this to anyone but I feel it would be better to be honest and possibly help someone then to keep it to myself. It’s really hard to bear your inner thoughts and emotions that sometimes we people need to confide in someone. Especially for me, I am so used to putting on a Strong front and pretending all is well… That way others don’t worry about me, pity me, or use my weakness against me. But writing the books where I am telling my life story have helped me become more open. I choose you my friend’s. I’m not asking you to pick up my burdens. I gave them to God and let them go. I am just saying We need to stick together and build each other up. That’ is how I believe God made us to be.  Lets be honest we all could do more then we are doing, we all need to encourage each other, watch our words towards each other. My always says that she doesn’t  want to have wasteful words… Meaning words that only bring waste and poison int to others lives. Neither do I. It is a challenge.

Proverbs 18:21 – Death and life [are] in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

Moe Bible Verses About Power Of The Tongue

 I know when I get into the habit of complaining it is hard to get out of… I am glad to say I haven’t been in that  havib for a while.When you let depression and dark thoughts control your emotions its really hard to beak free. So don’t go there if you can help it. Then suddenly today I found this picture today and it was perfect for what I need and I hope it will be perfect for what you need.

Dear Child

I’m still fighting sickness but I’ll be better soon in Jesus name! I’ve been working on getting closer to God on a one on one  level.  With  all that I’ve been thinking a lot about where I have been and where I am now… Were am I now?? I thought for sure I was lost and going no where… That I haven’t done anything worth anything in years… Well that’ not true tho… Let me ask you – How often do you feel that way? How often do you wonder if what your doing has any purpose? Living is your purpose, doing the best that you can with what you have been given  by God. I can’t tell you what your calling is, someday’s I am not sure what mine is. But I refuse to let life’s troubles keep me down no matter how bad things get. My life history is proof of that. ~hugs~ If you need a friend I am here for you.  Please let me know if my blogs are something you enjoy reading. I cold use your encouragement and feedback. Thank you♥

‪God bless you today and always!

A Blessing in Disguise.

Oh Hello there,

It is that time again right… The  time to update you on all that is happening…  I can’t believe how fast time flies…

*First off: After along debate with myself and some other people. I looked into globally publishing my faith  short story “God Supplies and Miracles still Happen”. God’s  timing is always perfect. Before when I had looked into publishing on Amazon and Barns and Noble it would have cost me $200.00 each. But when I looked into it again recently I saw it  has now become free…. Seriously??? Woot!!!

So I  started proof reading my  book that was out for sale and re-formatting it for the global copy and I caught some big errors… Some how I had published the wrong copy of my book… How embarrassing…  I sure hope no one bought any of those bad copies… The story is still good. However some key things had errors. Such as:  my parents rode a train to San Francisco not a plane… Since I had some how deleted the better copy I had to start editing all over again…  This turned out to be a blessing in disguise. I increased the book by almost 10 pages… And I rearranged some things, so it flows much better. I sent the  final copy to  someone I trust to edit it further.. When I get it back I’ll re check it, make the appropriate changes and  re-publish  it on http://www.LuLu.com

Since the books I have up are glitched. I removed the links to them  for now. Once I get it back I will  re format those books and put in the new content… I have to do it for  both books.  You will be able to order copies of these exclusively  from LuLu when I put them back up… And Now  I’ll have a third copy… It will be saddle stitched.  I have to order  a copy to see how it turns out, which can take up tow weeks, and once I give the go ahead they will send it to their approval team to make sure everything is good and it is presentable to be mass produced.  That  can take up six to eight weeks. EEk! Once it is approved, which I know it will be, The book will be available  for sale and  at more then the two places.  I am so excited and Scared!!!! I never dreamed this would be so realistic and my dream is finally coming to it’s beginning… I know some of you have been waiting literally years…

*Second: Now that I have that taken care of I am back to working on the other three books. I am honestly  re- Thinking Amy Jane’s Mini Assortments… I still wanna  do it, however. I am not sure to what scale and what  exactly do I want the contents to contain now. I just don’t seem like the grand example of my work as I first thought it to be.. So while I barley work on that I am currently  working on finishing “Deeply Rooted In Him”  The next book I hope to publish and by the end of the year too….  And of course I’m working on my main. “Miracles still Happen Today”.  Both are coming along very nicely. I am debating changing  the name, of ” Miracles Still Happen Today”.  I’ll cross that road once it is done..

*Third: I found 3 of my fictions… Two of the three are mostly up  to date, which I am pleased to have printed notes on… And one that is really out of date. I don’t think I will dare even touching that one till much latter.. But now when I get burned out and fried from working on my personal and faith stories I now have another set of outlets  to work on and relive my stress.  I am so happy about that.. But  Don’t get your hopes up.. They are far from being done and I still have some plot kinks to figure out Before get get to deep into the story.

*Lastly: Thank you so much for reading and caring about my work. It means so much to me and encourages me, even-tho I revive so little comments. I am so pleased my ambition and passion matters to you even if it is the tiniest bit…  ~HUGS~

Updates Finally!


Hello dear readers,

I finally got around to editing the links and my work page! Whew… It’s a pain to do, I’m not entirely happy with it. But my coding skills are limited… @.@ Anyways I added  a few books I am working on. Normally I would do a full detailed progress report with lots of fun little  details. But I am taking care of my nephew this week, he is currently  occupying his self with the movie Frozen… His favorite character is Olaf of course…  One of Mine too. 😛   Great Movie you should see it….

 So I have to keep this short.. 

Some of my books are on hold, oddly enough all my fictions.. Due to a past virus I had my  updated versions were  deleted from my laptop. However I was smart and backed them up on my External Hard drive…  The bad news is, since the move I can not find the power cord to it…  I had kept them together but somehow the  cord has vanished…  I however was smart enough to back up my faith based books in 2 other places. So I am currently working on  those when Time permits..  Those being:  “Miracles Still Happen Today”, “Deeply Rooted In Him”,  and “Amy Jane’s Mini Assortments”.  The latter being a book I  was able to compile really quickly…    I was not gonna announce it, I was gonna leave it as a surprise. But since They are all coming along so nicely I couldn’t help but share my Joy.  Although I seem to be busier then usual, and i have a small desk…  I am  doing a lot better with staying focused and writing more often then I used to.

I long so much to finish them as soon as possible, and I get so stressed when I want to write and can’t. However Life is precious and people are too. So  I tend to choose  experiences and people over time alone writing if presented the option.  God’s timing is perfect  so I try not to get mad at myself  for not being done yet. I want them to be perfect… Well as perfect as I can be and I am looking for publishers on two of the three books too… Tho I will probably self publish also…. I want to follow God’s will.. I am really pleased with how “God Supplies and Miracles  Happen” Turned out!   You need adobe reader for the e-book.. I’m debating paying the money to get it on Amazon, Nook and ibooks….  What do you think? Should I? And  I adore how the print book turned out… You should totally check that out.  http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/AmyJane27

Well that is it for  now…

Lots of Love, God Bless you today and always!
