Author Bio:

Isn't life sweet and wonderful! I love every minute this side of heaven while waiting to cross over to heaven! Like every woman, I face my own challenges and difficulties in life - like right now, I'm under treatment at MD Anderson Cancer Center for a serious form of breast cancer after surviving breast cancer 9 years ago. But I know that God has His arms firmly around me and I will not despair!

I have loved encouraging women in my home the first Monday of every month for more than 18 years. Tea and a sweet treat each Sweet Monday of the month is a special time to fellowship with other women. "Sweet Monday" started out of loneliness after becoming a stay-at-home mom and wanting to connect with other women. This special day of the month is always a priority for me and I get so excited to see who will arrive every time! (You'll learn more about this throughout my devotional).

I love helping all women grow in their faith and my faith is strengthened by sharing with women. That's one reason I decided to write my new devotional, "The One Year Sweet & Simple Moments with God Devotional," (published by Tyndale House Publishers in September, 2013 and available for pre-order now). What better way to sweetly interact with women and encourage each other?!

In my new devotional, I have tried to share insights gathered from pausing and listening to God in my day-to-day life, encouraging us all to take a sweet and simple moment to be still with God every day. I've read the Bible through every year for the past 10 years and I hope to encourage other women through what I have learned through God's powerful Word and by seeing His Hand in my life.

I also love hosting tea parties for my friends and their daughters, and wearing my big pink hat makes it so much fun! I even have a big PINK TRUCK (I really do!!!). I hang my pink hat in Richmond, Virginia, sharing life with my best friend and husband, Mark, a former state director for Fellowship of Christian Athletes and a basketball player at the University of Virginia, and my precious college daughter, Kali.

Please visit my website to learn more ( and thank you for sharing God's Word every sweet day! I hope you will find "The One Year Sweet & Simple Moments with God" inspiring and encouraging - and even a little bit funny and sweet!

Kevin has written over 20 books for youth, including Can I Be a Christian Without Being Weird?, Does Anybody Know What Planet My Parents are From?, What's with the Mutant in the Microscope?, Pray Hard, Bust Loose, Catch the Wave and his recent release, Get Smart.

    My Review Of Just Like Jesus Devotional: A Thirty-Day Walk with the Savior By Max Lucado


    What does it mean to be "Just like Jesus?" This personal month-long journey with the Savior offers Scripture, practical devotions and application sessions to pattern one's life after Christ.
    Starting at day one, readers meet the Savior and find their way of thinking challenged. Who is this Nazarene? Who is the Son of God? How can we become more like Him? How can I reflect His grace and goodness to others?

    As readers begin to think more like Christ, they are challenged to put words into action as the journey escalates into a full force, radical retracing and renewal of what it means to be a follower of Christ.

    Just Like Jesus, The Devotional is daily encouragement and instruction for becoming a "do-er" as well as a follower of Christ.

    My Take On This Book:

    I being a Max Lucado fan absolutely love this devotional. I have
