About the book:
Miracle Drug (Abingdon, September 2015)

Overcoming these odds will take more than a miracle drug—it will take a miracle.

The infection wasn’t supposed to happen, but it did. The treatment was supposed to take care of it, but it didn’t. Then Dr. Josh Pearson discovers why—his patients, including the former President of the United States, have been dosed with a different strain of the original virus, one that is universally fatal. The only chance for survival is treatment with an experimental drug, but the manufacturer might already have discarded its supply.

As if treating the President of the United States isn’t stressful enough, the situation goes from bad to worse when Rachel Moore, a nurse Josh is falling in love with, falls ill. With the nation’s eyes on him, Josh must pull off a miracle to save a man who holds a good deal of power and the woman who holds his heart.

Wow, what a truly amazing book! A book of courage, faith, hope, love,determination and never letting go! This book truly moved me to tears at key points of this story.

This is truly an inspirational story.This is not the type of book that I would have normally picked to read. There was something about it that kept nagging at me, when the opportunity was offered to review this book. I am so glad that I took the opportunity to read and review this book. It has given me a new found hope in life. Now that I have read this book through, I plan to re-read and highlight key parts that…

About the book:
Just Show Up (David C Cook, October 2015)

Kara Tippetts’s story was not a story of disease, although she lost her battle with terminal cancer.

It was not a story of saying goodbye, although she was intentional in her time with her husband and four children. Kara’s story was one of seeing God in the hard and in the good. It was one of finding grace in the everyday. And it was one of knowing “God with us” through fierce and beautiful friendship.

In Just Show Up, Kara and her close friend, Jill Lynn Buteyn, write about what friendship looks like in the midst of changing life seasons, loads of laundry, and even cancer. Whether you are eager to be present to someone going through a difficult time or simply want inspiration for pursuing friends in a new way, this eloquent and practical book explores the gift of silence, the art of receiving, and what it means to just show up.

EXCERPTS (Exclusive Excerpt)

As Dan and Leah moved through the line, Josiah noticed that a black-haired man with a close-clipped beard, piercing eyes, and a commanding presence had taken a plate. The stranger stood for a moment, assessing the various pans of food on the buffet line. His face eased into a debonair smile as he leaned closer to speak to Savilla. “Do I understand correctly that you are in charge of these fabulous side dishes while Josiah grills the meat?” he asked in a melodious voice.

Savilla returned his smile, and then gestured for Adam and Matthias to pull their loaded wagons into the space behind her. “Jah, we stick with what folks seem to like best. Nothing fancy, just gut food.”

When the man’s focus shifted to him, Josiah got a prickly feeling in his stomach. The charm that had oozed while this fellow spoke to his sister was hardening into an expression of extreme ill-will.

“Hiram Knepp,” Matthias muttered. “What brings you to this party?”

“If you figure to bother Annie Mae and the rest of our family, ya better get on out of here,” Adam said sternly.

In a flash Josiah realized he’d made a couple of huge mistakes: hooking up with Knepp in the first place, and then not contacting him as Ben had recommended. He also knew he was about to start paying for his lack of judgment right this moment. Was it his imagination, or had the whole dining area—where a couple hundred people were eating—gone totally silent?

“My business doesn’t concern you, Wagler,” Hiram replied in clipped tone. “I have an agreement with Josiah Witmer, who signed on to cook for me in Higher Ground. It seems he’s made himself right at home in Willow Ridge instead, and I demand an explanation.”

Savilla’s face had gone pale but she found her voice before Josiah did. “The way I understand it, Mr. Knepp, my brother merely talked with you over the phone. So—”

“We stopped in Willow Ridge because we got lost in a snowstorm,” Lena spoke up behind Josiah. She came to stand beside him, glaring up at Knepp. “And since then, we’ve been told that things in Higher Ground aren’t the way you made them out to be.”

“This wedding party’s not the time or place to be bringin’ up such business, and you know it, Hiram.” Ben, who’d been chatting with folks at a nearby table, stepped up beside Savilla, crossing his arms as he scowled at Knepp. “We’ve told ya not to return here, so you’d best move along.”

Hiram’s smile turned menacing. “And I’ve told you that I’ll go wherever I please, Hooley,” he shot back. He sneered at Josiah. “Cat got your tongue, Witmer? I’m hearing from everyone except you—excuses that have nothing to do with your agreement to cook at my supper club.”

AUTHOR Bio and Links:
