Books and More Books to Celebrate Mother’s Day

Question of the Week on Welcome to My World blog challenge is:

What book (paperback or ebook) would you recommend to your readers this week?

In view of Mother’s Day being just around the corner, it seems obvious that my answer needs to be something for Mom. And I have some really lovely books to suggest. Some written by me. Others written by friends. Many … written by awesome authors.

So in answer to the question, I’m going to suggest a new boxed set I’ve compiled especially for mothers.

To Mother with Love is a selection of three devotional books especially for that person you call Mom. (Or if that’s you, then treat yourself!) read more

Dianne J. Wilson chats about 7 Lights in Dark Times

This entry is part 16 of the series In All Things

Hello again! Here comes another Friday!  And here’s a bit of trivia you probably don’t want to know. At the point I’m writing this, there are only 46 more Fridays until Christmas! I wonder what those 46 weeks are going to bring? Will we still all be in various stages of Lockdown? Or will COVID have faded into the history books? Or at least have been brought under control? Who knows? (Apart from God and He’s not telling!)

So we’re still doing a weekly chat with the authors of our fabulous boxed set, In All Things, into its second AND FINAL phase on Amazon. So if you don’t have it yet, make sure you grab it while it’s still available.

Today, we’re talking to a friend of mine, author Dianne J. Wilson—also known as Di. read more

Shirley Corder – Peace in Life’s Storms

This entry is part 15 of the series In All Things

Last Friday of January!

And we’ve reached the last Friday of the first month of the year! How crazy is that? It’s surreal how the days are galloping past. I wonder if, at the end of this year, we’ll make the same comments as we did at the end of 2020. “This year seemed to last for years!” So it’s time for another interview.

Seeing we’re looking at one of my books this week, I’ve asked a friend and writing colleague to conduct an interview with me. Anna Jensen and I both have two books in the boxed set, In All Things. So thank you Anna. Over to you, as we look at my second book in the set, Peace in Life’s Storms! read more

Marion Ueckermann – and her Reflections from the Ocean

This entry is part 14 of the series In All Things

And it’s Friday again!

I thought time was supposed to be going slowly. Yet it seems to be speeding by as if someone has his foot stuck on the accelerator of his new Ferrari. It’s time once again for another interview with one of the South African authors involved in the boxed set, In All Things.

Today it’s my pleasure to introduce you (or re-introduce you) to popular Christian Romance writer, Marion Ueckermann, who took a break from her romance writing to share some devotional insights in her book, Reflections from the Ocean (and Surrounds).

Opening the Year with Val, Author of Saints in Lockdown

This entry is part 12 of the series In All Things

Happy New Year!

It seems impossible that it’s a whole year since our last interview two weeks ago with Vida Li Sik!

Talking to others, I’ve found it fascinating how many people reporting that 2020 seemed more like a decade! That although the days seemed to fly past, the weeks went on forever. I was chatting on WhatsApp with my daughter in Montenegro. She said she’d been talking to her teaching colleagues the day before, and they had all said the same thing!

Isn’t it strange?

How about you? Has 2020 seemed a particularly long year for you?

So today we return to one of the last interviews with authors who participated in our boxed set, In All Things, and today we’re chatting to Val Waldeck, a multi-published author who lives in Durban, on the South Coast of South Africa.

Welcome Val!

Steps of Faith – Spending Time with Author Crystal Warren

This entry is part 9 of the series In All Things

It’s Friday again!

Time to interview one of the authors of our beautiful boxed set, In All Things. This is a 13-book boxed set of devotional writings, with each book covering seven days of devotions, and based in Africa. Every one of these books has a totally different theme, each chosen by the authors, and yet wow! They all gel together so beautifully. So today, I’m going to be chatting to Crystal Warren, author of the book, Steps of Faith – Seven Journeys.

Crystal lives in a small town which has actually earned its right to be called a city called Makhanda, recently renamed from the old name of Grahamstown. This is a small town in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. One must travel an hour and a half to Port Elizabeth or two hours to East London. The part of that which excites me the most is the distance from Port Elizabeth – my hometown! So she’s a fairly near neighbor! We have worked together on NaNoWriMo a number of times, acting as twin MLs on two occasions.

Talking to Crystal Warren, author of Steps of Faith - Seven Journeys, one of thirteen books in the boxed set, In All Things. Click To Tweet read more

In All Things – A Compilation of Devotions by Authors of Africa

This entry is part 5 of the series In All Things

In All Things

Lockdown!

As the very strict lockdown imposed on South Africa was prolonged, I decided to suggest a 13-book project for some of the writers on my Christian Writers of Southern Africa Facebook group.

On the 10th July, eleven authors stepped to one side to work on what was to become an extremely fun, and at times very challenging, project. Over a period of 16 weeks, we tackled and produced a 13-book boxed set of daily devotions, all with a covering theme of Africa.

Sunrise to Sunset – Chatting to Deryn van der Tang

This entry is part 6 of the series In All Things

Interview with Deryn

As it’s Friday once again, here is an interview with one of the authors published in In All Things, a 3-month boxed set of daily devotional readings, all linked to Africa. Each small book of seven devotions is written by an author who was either born in Africa or was born elsewhere but has lived in Africa for some time. So we all share the theme – Out of Africa! Today, I’d like to introduce you to Deryn van der Tang. read more

Seven African Animals and What They Teach Us About God

This entry is part 4 of the series In All Things

7 African Animals Author Interview

Over the next three months, I’m going to be looking at the authors who compiled the thirteen one-week books that make up the boxed set, In All Things ~ 13 Weeks of Devotions from Africa. I plan to interview all the authors and give you some insight into the background to their books, the motivation behind the themes they chose, and their general experiences of the project. 

I’m starting with the first book in the box. This happens to be my own, 7 African Animals, and what they teach us about God. Because this is my book, I obviously won’t do this in the form of an interview, but I’ll try to cover the same issues.
