I recently went to a marketing conference in Austin, TX and met some fantastic authors! I can't wait to share some of their books with you!

One of the big decisions I have to make is how to publish my next book. The publishing agency I was with is going in a different direction, and now I am faced with going with another publisher or ultimately going indie! Do you have a preference when you are reading books? Do you only read traditionally published books or give an indie author a chance? Please reply back and let me know! I greatly value your opinion!!

Author Spotlight:

Children's Author Melissa Ray

I had the opportunity to meet Melissa Ray at a book conference a couple of years ago. I love her books and the much-needed message she brings to the world. Her children's books are inspired by her grandpa, a sharecropper who later worked for NASA!

You can check out my interview with her on YouTube. Her books are available on Amazon and her website,

Keep making the impossible possible with God!

Chrystal Gilkey

“God is looking for those with whom He can do the impossible – what a pity that we plan only the things that we can do by ourselves.” ― A.W. Tozer

Merry Christmas! We spent a lovely morning at church with my mom, listening to one of my favorite preachers—Dr. Raymond Barber. He always begins preaching quoting Scripture from memory and also this saying "When you open the Bible, you are opening the mind of God." I am so thankful for God's gift of His Son and that we have easy access to the Word of God.
