Hi Friends,

Thanksgiving may look different for all of us this year, but as you look back through the past eight months at the ways you have been cared for and blessed, I hope it will inspire you to have a grateful heart and a reason to celebrate.

I am thankful for your support, encouragement, and kind reviews of my books! I appreciate every reader who invests time reading my stories.  Keep reading for a special sale price on two holiday novellas!

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. I enjoy decorating the house, setting a pretty table, and sharing the day with family and friends. I look forward to making some of our family’s favorite dishes for our Thanksgiving meal. We’ll be roasting a turkey and making stuffing, gravy, mashed potatoes, green beans, cranberry sauce, and a 7-layer salad. For dessert I’m making a gluten-free apple pie and mini pumpkin tarts.

Creating the 7-Layer Salad is a fun project you might like to try. We cut colorful peppers into small squares, and then use them to add a special design to the top of the salad. The design usually relates to some event in our family that year. We’ve featured the flag of Sudan when our daughter Melissa and her husband Peter were working there, and one year we topped the salad with the name of our daughters’, Megan and Lizzy’s, new business, Dog Wash Depot. Some years it’s just a pretty design. I’m smiling just thinking of all the fun we’ve had making those pretty salads.  Here’s a link to the recipe for the Seven Layer Salad. Just scroll down on the Extra Page at my website to find it.

 

No matter what the circumstances are for you this year . . . there is always one thing that never changes . . . and it’s always a great reason to be thankful:

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.
1 Chronicles 16:34
 
I have two novellas with Thanksgiving scenes for you to enjoy reading this month. Moonlight Over Manhattan is a heartwarming contemporary romance set in New York City during the holidays. Waiting for His Return is a Civil War inspirational romance. Both are on sale for .99 cents November 19 – 21! Just click on the images below to download your copy from Amazon!
 

I hope your Thanksgiving is fun and relaxing and you enjoy some good food and fun times with family or friends. Have a Blessed Thanksgiving!

Hi Friends, I hope you’re having a wonderful Thanksgiving week and you’ll be enjoying time with family and friends. I’m getting the shopping done and the guest room ready for our out of town family. We’ll be enjoying our kids and grandkids, roasting a turkey, and I’ll be making our Seven-layer Salad. I love this special holiday! Thanksgiving helps me remember to count my blessings and thank the Lord for all His goodness toward us!  Visit the Extra Page of my website for the Seven-layer Salad recipe.

The design usually relates to some event in our family that year. We’ve featured the flag of Sudan when our daughter Melissa and her husband Peter were working there. The year our son Ben married Galan, we created a design with wedding bells and their initials. Last year we topped the salad with the name of our daughters’, Megan and Lizzy’s, new business, Dog Wash Depot. I’m smiling just thinking of all the fun we’ve had. Here’s a link to the recipe.
