The tomb of St. Therese in the basilica dedicated to her in Lisieux, France.


This week I began bribing my kids to help me finish my book. They each start with $1, and lose 5¢ each time they interrupt me with discipline problems or goofing around during school hours. We’re doing lots of worksheets right now!

I wrote my final chapter of Trusting God with St. Therese on Tuesday. Now I’m doing some final rewriting and editing. i hope to send it out to a few Beta readers in about two weeks. Then there will be one more round of editing and final formatting before I make it available to select book reviewers.

If you have sent me an email lately and haven’t heard back right away, please know that I am not ignoring you. I am just really focused on my book until this stage is complete. I will try to reply to as soon as I can.

In the meantime, here are some links related to Trusting God with St. Therese that you might have missed.

Here’s my author interview at Smashwords from last fall. I don’t give a lot of specifics about Trusting God with St. Therese, but I do talk a bit about my writing process, my inspiration, and authors I love.

If you missed the post with my cover design, you can view it here.

Thanks for your continued prayers. I’m really excited that this project is nearing its climax. I can’t wait to share it with you!

      Thanks, Jenna. I hope you downloaded your free chapter today. If not, check your email (although you probably wouldn’t be reading this reply without checking your email).
