Some time during Holy Week--maybe it was Sunday afternoon when the crowd was still cheering their Messiah--Jesus warned his disciples of his coming death.
“The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds. Anyone who loves their life will lose it, while anyone who hates their life in this world will keep it for eternal life" (John 12:23-25).
I started blogging in August 2007. Every writer is supposed to have a blog. “It’s how you maintain contact with your readers,” someone had told me at the Cape Town Book Fair a couple weeks before. “You write about little things that strike you during the day.” I couldn’t imagine anyone wanting to read about “little things that strike me during the day.” Besides, I was too busy writing a novel.
Sharon Souza's Unraveled starts slowly (way too much background in chapter one and a bit too much general niceness in the early chapters), but wow! when it gets going!
Sharon describes her writing as “heart-of-the-matter fiction with a good dose of humor.” The humor in this case comes from the quirky voice of Aria Winters granddaughter of former-hippies-turned-Jesus-people krystal and blue karma. Ree, as she is called, grew up on the nut farm (walnuts, almonds, and pistachios, that is), and runs off to Moldova (check your map of Eastern Europe) to be a missionary.
LeAnne Hardy has lived in six countries on four continents. Her books come out of her cross-cultural experiences and her passion to use story to convey spiritual truths in a form that will permeate lives.
