About the Book

Just out of college and completely alone in the world, Maggie Montgomery has one shot left to save her life from an abyss of poverty and hopelessness. Clinging to the last shred of fuel and hope, she arrives at the mansion of Texas billionaire Conrad Ayer. Although Maggie is clearly not what Mr. Ayer and his wife have in mind for a nanny, they agree to hire her temporarily until they can find someone more appropriate to fill the position. However, Maggie’s whole world is about to be up-ended by two way-over-scheduled children and one incredibly handsome hired hand. As she struggles to fit into a world she was never made to fit in, Maggie wonders if she can ever learn to become a perfect version of herself so she can keep the job, or is she doomed to always be searching for a life she can never quite grasp?

Keith Ayer despises his life. As the son of Texas billionaire Conrad Ayer and the fiance to a Senator from Texas’ daughter, it looks great on the outside, but inside, he is dying. He would vastly prefer to manage and train his father’s racehorses. However, everyone else thinks that is beneath him. He needs to get into industry and build on his father’s success. Suffocating under the constrictions of his life, he meets Maggie, and she begins to teach him that wealth and power is not everything in this life. But can Keith defy the two most powerful men in Texas to follow his heart?

“Staci Stallings… Christian fiction at its best!”

The Quest For Forgiveness by J.L.Rothdiener

She had everything… fame, talent, beauty, and one of the most successful music careers in history. The world was her stage, but the screaming adulation of her fans could not fill the hole in her heart. Her past was shrouded in shadows, some of her own making, and some of which she was trying desperately to pierce.

No amount of success could bring her the one thing she needed most… forgiveness…

21 Prayers for Teen Girls by Shelley Hitz and Heather Hart

[easyazon-image align=”right” asin=”B00ESMNI4G” locale=”us” height=”160″ src=”http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41UW1rletwL._SL160_.jpg” width=”100″]

Prayer is something that we hear Christians talking about all the time – but when it comes to actually talking to God, we often don’t know what to say.

Written specifically for teen girls, the prayers in this book are the prayers of our hearts. You can pray them or use them for inspiration for prayers of your own. You can pray about anything and everything – God is always listening. We encourage you to pray along and make a habit out of praying for God to mold you into the woman He created you to be.

These timeless pieces, written by someone who went from the life of an active and involved woman to a near invalid within just a few weeks, speak to the heart of anyone who feels like they’ve’ve been put on the shelf and possibly forgotten.

Couple Corners by Paula Whidden

52 Faithful Choices for a More Joy-Filled Marriage

[easyazon-image align=”right” asin=”B00HALMPTQ” locale=”us” height=”160″ src=”http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41YeUCDg%2B8L._SL160_.jpg” width=”109″]Recall that moment on a road trip with your spouse, when you reach a corner and one of you calls out, “Turn left.” The other shakes his head and says, “No, it’s right.”

If you were in separate vehicles, you would part ways and check out your own destination. This is a couple corner.

As you read this book, you will discover 52 uniquely different corners we encounter as couples. You’ll begin as if you were taking a drive. The easiest corners start in first gear. Truly brave and daring couples will progress all the way to the final choices. When you do, you’ll be speeding down the highway of marriage in fifth gear, which moves you forward the fastest, but also contains the biggest risks.

Book #3:
21 Days of Gratitude

gratitude challenge

During a season of transition in my life, I found myself overwhelmed with negative emotions like self-pity and a complaining spirit. It was as if a dark cloud had descended over me. I prayed and asked God for wisdom on how to overcome these negative emotions. And I sensed Him leading me to do this 21 days of gratitude challenge.

Over the course of the 21 days, God began to change me as I spent intentional time being grateful for all I have been given. I did this through writing in my journal each day and also sending a hand-written thank you note to someone different each day.

And now I want to share what I learned with you in the short, but powerful book.
