Last month, I had a new novel release: Sewn with Joy!
It’s a story about an Amish woman who was asked to sew for a new Amish TV show but before she knows it they’re asking her to get in front of the camera, too! This novel was fun to write, but it also is very heart-tugging. In addition to Joy’s story I get to dig into the heart and thoughts of an actress who’s sure that she’s made too many mistakes to be loved by God. The friendship these women build truly becomes a beautiful thing.
Here is the official summary:
Joy Miller wanted nothing more than to be a wife and mother—especially now that her relationship with Matthew Slagel, the bishop’s son, was deepening. But when a television crew rolls into Pinecraft, Florida, to film a new show about the Amish, tension threatens to rip apart their relationship…and the entire Amish community.
Joy is initially hired to sew costumes for the show, but she soon finds herself becoming increasingly involved in the production—a fact that upsets Matthew and his father. Yet the more Joy befriends the Englischer production crew, the more she senses God working in their lives through her. Can she turn her back on this opportunity to share God’s love? Will she and Matthew somehow be able to stitch together their dreams for the future
Experience love, heartbreak, and hope in this sweet story of two worlds uniting in unexpected ways.
Even though I took two years of home ec, I’m not much of a seamstress, but one thing I do love is paper dolls. Recently my daughter Alyssa was enjoying Little House on the Prairie Paper dolls, and I thought it would be fun to create some Amish ones for my readers!
These paper dolls are FREE for you to enjoy! You can download them here: http://bit.ly/2cPPB6B
They work best when they are printed on card stock. Have fun and please spread the word. Also, check out my new novel Sewn with Joy!
How about you? Did you love to create paper dolls as a kid? Do you now?!
