First, we have fellow Harvest House author Hillary Lodge with a great fiction read. Plain Jayne is the story of a journalist who has lost her edge (um, there are many days I can relate to Jayne life just with that one little fact,) and so to regain some perspective she goes to live in an Amish community for three weeks. I love Hillary’s straightforward writing and her meshing of two worlds. To find out if your as big a fan as I am, check out the first chapter here.
Karen Porter is a national retreat and seminar speaker, the author/co-author of six books, and a successful businesswoman. You can check out her website at karenporter.com
Karen says her marriage to George is her greatest achievement. Karen’s favorite activity is continuing her life-long quest for the perfect purse.
Karen’s book is I’ll Bring the Chocolate: Satisfying a Woman’s Craving for Friendship and Faith. About her book: Stimulating. Satisfying. Tantilizing. Delicious. Chocolate is that sweet “something extra” that infuses anything ordinary with delectable flavor and zest. In the same way, loving friendships can sweeten a woman’s life and make almost any situation — good or bad — taste even better. Blending true stories and several original choclate recipes with rich biblical examples, Karen Porter explores eight ways that friends can help one another enjoy life — and point each other to the God who made every good and perfect gift — especially chocolate!
