Pieces on Earth by Cathy Bryant and a *GIVEAWAYS*

You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast,

because they trust in You.
Isaiah 26:3

As the wife of a naval aviator in sunny Pensacola, Florida, Liv Tulley eagerly anticipates the first Christmas in several years with her husband, daughter, and extended family. Then her husband is unexpectedly deployed for an undetermined amount of time, smashing her white Christmas dreams. Can she find God's peace in the midst of life's pieces?

About the Author:
Amazon best-selling author Cathy Bryant loves to write heart-stirring stories of God's life-changing grace, and has done so through six Miller's Creek novels, two Bible studies, one Christmas novella, and two devotional books written in collaboration with other Christian authors. She's also written for The Upper Room devotional magazine. When she's not writing, you'll find her rummaging through thrift stores, romping in the great outdoors, or up to her elbows in yet another home improvement project in the mountain cabin she shares with her minister husband of over thirty years. You can connect with Cathy in the following online spots, including her website:, where you can download a free eBook copy of one of her novels.

My Thoughts:
I just started this book last night and I am about half way through. Although, I haven't finished it yet, I can tell you this much, you are going to love this book! I am wishing I did not have to do my "chores" and could instead curl up with a cup of coffee, hot tea, or hot cocoa (for it is chilly out today) and read the rest. But I guess it will have to wait until this evening. 

So far I am enjoying the wondering. Liv is struggling with the fact that her "perfect" Christmas has been ruined. This, her first year in forever, with her husband at home for Christmas has been ruined by his sudden deployment. She is battling the anger, bitterness, and lies the enemy is feeding her. The solution... shopping!! It's the American way... Fill your void with stuff, fun, only... sadly she is still empty. Can she give up her grip on control, anger, and let God have His way?

A few surprises have shown up so far... But I can't wait to see what happens. This is a quick read, by one of my favorite authors, who writes from the heart and loves the Lord. You can feel it in her books.
