Thank you!

My re-release for Entertaining Angels was on Tuesday, and it was a blast. You all made my day so much more special.

Entertaining Angels holds such a special place in my heart. I want people to learn how to love themselves, but I also want them to know how much God loves them. I’ve been trying really hard to get that message across, and for everyone to celebrate that fact with me means more than you’ll ever know!

I have to thank my team at Vox Dei and Vox Dei Publishing itself for believing in me and my book. Without them, I don’t think I would have pushed myself into believing that this little book of mine could change the world, but that’s what I’m hoping for. The fact that someone could love themselves more and understand what true beauty means is what keeps me believing in this book. If I could help one person, that’s what matters most to me.

So thank you all! To those I met in my Facebook party, y’all were a blast! To those who missed it, I hope we can party again. :) I do have another release coming up soon! (the re-release of Before We Say I Do, the Entertaining Angels short story)

Again, I want to thank you all for making this journey amazing. I know this is a fairly sappy post, but it was on my heart!

I want to leave y’all with this thought. I asked the people in my party what they thought their flaws were. Then, I asked them to tell me what made them beautiful. The whole point of that was for them to realize that none of us are perfect, and we need to stop trying to make ourselves so. We’re unique because of who we are, and we all have beautiful characteristics and strengths.

What do you think? What are your flaws? What makes you beautiful? Tell me in the comments!

P.S. You can use the hashtags #youarebeautiful and #loveyourself to get my attention on Twitter or Instagram! I use those to share encouraging posts about – well – loving yourself and reminding you of your beauty!

It’s re-release day!

The day is finally upon us! Entertaining Angels has been re-released through Vox Dei Publishing, and you can finally buy your new copy of the book!

It has been re-edited (although we kept EVERYTHING the same), and we added discussion questions for book clubs and youth groups.

We’ve also given the cover a brand new look! I’m guessing you’d like to see it? Well, here it is! The new face of Entertaining Angels!


And the full jacket:


Beautiful, right? I’m so excited!!
