Jesus is NOT Your Homeboy

Jesus  is GOD. The Great I AM. The Lion of Judah. The Lamb of God. Creator. Healer. Almighty. Messiah. He is NOT your “homeboy.” Can we talk to him any time we want about anything we want anywhere we want? Yes! And that is AMAZING. We can know Jesus through the Bible, we can experience Him through the Holy Spirit, we can have an intimate, personal relationship with GOD in the flesh! But we cannot forget that He is holy. We cannot relegate him to “buddy” status. What Jesus has done for us is unbelievable – He didn’t just teach us some good things or give us a great example to follow – He SAVED us from eternal separation from God. He GAVE us the opportunity to spend forever in heaven with Him. He HELPS us every day in so...

LUMINARY Is My ____ Book

WOW!! SO many guesses for the Luminary giveaway. Yay! I decided to go ahead and announce the winner this morning rather than tonight because my comment box was so filled up. That sure is a nice problem to have ;). But you know what’s funny?? NO ONE guessed the actual number! I’m feeling pretty proud of myself right now. So here’s what it is and why it is: So far, the books I have had published are: First Date, Starring Me, Right Where I Belong, and Anomaly. Making Luminary number…. The closest guesses were 3 (Jojo) and 7 (Tonja was first to guess that number. I’m sorry, Carolyn!). You ladies will be getting an email from me shortly with the info. THANKS for playing. This was so much fun.  You guys are the best! ~Krista...

LUMINARY Giveaway!

I’ve gotten lots of notes about how cruel I was to leave Anomaly readers hanging at the end of that book. I feel badly about that – I love my readers! So here’s what I’m going to do: I just got some Advance Reader Copies (ARC’s) of Luminary, and I want to send a couple of those out to those of you who can’t wait until January to know what happens next. SO…pick a number between 1-100. I already did. Thomas is holding it for me, behind that sheet of paper. The two readers who get closest to the number get a signed ARC of Luminary. Enter your number (just one per person, please) in the “comments” section below. I’ll announce the winner Friday evening. Or, er, Thomas will announce the winner Friday :). Guess...

My New Year’s Resolution

Because I am a teacher, my New Year does not begin in January. It begins in August. I have always enjoyed the start of a new school year, even as a student. I liked the smell of new school supplies, the feel of a new backpack. I wasn’t terribly academic, but I did enjoy school, my friends, extracurricular activities (anything to do with drama or music). And I walked into every new school year hopeful – “this will be the best year EVER.” As a teacher, I feel much the same way. I want every new school year to be better than the one before. I want to be a better teacher, a better mentor, a better mom, a better wife. In the last month, I have started exercising more regularly. I have read books that will stretch me, not just the books that I...
