Your worst nightmare has come true, the love of your life is gone.

Chris wakes up from what he thinks is a dream, but in fact it is the news that his wife has passed away. Left with a young daughter to care for Chris moves back to his hometown and takes refuge in his parents home. What he doesn’t expect is to awaken feelings he didn’t know existed in a childhood friend.

Hurt, betrayed, mistreated and abused.

Tina thought she had someone to love her, but what she found was a monster in disguise. Moving back to her hometown and settling into a simple routine. Tina offers her condolences to childhood crush Chris. He accepts her condolences but what he wants is her heart.

Walker takes you on a journey of love lost and love gained. She allows her characters to feel every emotion possible while repairing their hearts and bring them together so they both can heal. Could you wait all your life for the one person that you are truly in love with?

I truly enjoyed this book and read it in one sitting. Overcoming life’s obstacles is a hard thing to do but when you have someone you can trust to help you get through the tough times, it makes things so much easier.

Being a bookworm has paid off!!

Growing up I was always reading a book. Birthdays, Christmas and even Easter all I wanted was a book. I spent a lot if time reading and writing in my notebooks. Don’t get me wrong, I played with other kids, I had my toys but something about reading a book excites me.

Books kept me out of trouble, books kept me sane when things got bad. When I needed something to uplift my spirit I turned to a book. I have so many books that I had to have a bookshelf built. Then when I ran out of room, I had a chest built. Once that was filled my parents bought me a Nook, they said it should hold me over for a while.

My taste in books has grown over the years but romance will always be in my heart. Fiction, non-fiction, spirituality, religion, business it doesn’t matter I have a fascination with books.

My challenge to myself this year is to write a book review for every book that I read. Being that I just started my internship with a publishing company I thinks it’s only fitting. Here’s to pushing myself and stepping out of my comfort zone. As much as I love being a bookworm it’s time to share with others what I’m reading.

I just finished reading this book. There are twists and turns, coming from every angle in this book. It is definitely a page turner. I love the way she sectioned off the book so you know right away which characters are speaking. Join Delphine Publications tonight for their bookchat with author Tammara!!

Tired of waiting?

God has given you a promise and you have been waiting for it to prosper. Be patient it is coming. Noah had to preach the same message for over 100 years before it rained. Just hold on a little while longer, your birthing season is here. Your promise will be fulfilled.

This was the text message I sent a few of my friends this morning. After reading through some scriptures, and thinking back on yesterday’s sermon in church, a few people came across my mind this morning so that’s what I sent them.

I don’t send a lot of these and I should but I get nervous and I’m not sure how people would perceive them. Often times The Lord will lay things on my heart and I’ll just pray about them but not follow through on the rest of His instructions which is to send that person or persons a simple message. Well today I just went ahead and did it. I didn’t make an excuse about it, I just did it.

How many times has God placed something on your heart and you have waited for it to prosper? You wait days, months, and sometimes years for the promise He told you to come forth. Don’t worry it is going to happen. It just takes time and preparation.

I have been a nervous wreck about some things that God has laid on my heart. Many of them I can’t even speak about yet because He has said, now is not the time. As I prepare for those other gifts to prosper, He has allowed some gifts and blessings come to life. My life is a testimony that I have not shared with many like I should have all because of fear. Well my fear of not telling my story is hindering someone else’s growth.

No more waiting, no more fear. Stop making excuses and remember the promises God has on your life. Be patient and know that your time is coming but preparation is key. Are you doing what you are supposed to be doing so that God can manifest the other gifts in your life?

I just want to write!

After years of trying I started school again last summer. I am extremely grateful for this opportunity. Most of my classes have been pretty interesting, I did have one class that I struggled with and the professor wouldn’t explain anything.

I really like my program, I haven’t started my actual journalism classes yet. But the communication courses that I have taken have really helped analyze a few things in my life, especially with the way I interact with people. I’m looking forward to learning more. I’m even considering becoming a teacher. I’ll start looking at Master’s degree programs this summer since I graduate next summer.

My dreams and goals are already becoming a reality. My food blog Southern Root Kitchen is doing better than I ever expected. I love food and writing, being able to incorporate both is fun and exciting. This year I have decided to expand my topics and discuss more topics about the kitchen, the decor, and appliances.

Writing has always been a passion of mine but I let others talk me into believing that a career wouldn’t get me anywhere. I know that’s not the case. I can do this and have the flexibility to be there for my family when they need me.

The opportunity to write for a living is a goal of mine that I will achieve.
