Yesterday, I woke up in the morning and felt an urge to pray.
I am so happy to introduce to you my Christian friend Julie-Allyson Ieron. Julie is an author, writing coach, editor, and conference speaker. Two of her e-books are doing the Amazon Prime free promo in the next few weeks.
Book summaries are:

Practical Models of Integrity for the Workplace and Beyond
Have you ever found yourself in a moral dilemma at work? Something seemingly insignificant that tested your resolve and challenged your integrity.

It is a timely, practical resource filled with stories of real people that will reinforce your commitment to Christlikeness—and energize you for the long haul. Then, rebuild your life around God’s character expectations using the bonus 12-session Bible study.
Praying Like Jesus (free on Amazon Kindle April 5-7, Easter week)
Updated Second Edition with Study Guide
Prayer is more—much more—than a laundry list of requests. It isn’t about getting the answers we want just when we want them. Actually, it isn’t about us, at all. Prayer is about relationship between Almighty God and you. Praying Like Jesus introduces you to prayer from a close-up perspective—that of God the Son. This dynamic study of 52 ways Jesus prayed for you will challenge your heart to come into contact with the Heart that beats to intercede for you. Savor one chapter at a time or one each week for a year. And dig in for yourself as you use the 9-session Bible study included in this updated eBook package.
Julie-Allyson Ieron (pronounced: I-RUN) is a perceptive journalist who investigates God’s truth and crafts her discoveries in ways that engage your mind and resonate with your heart. Her passion is to open God’s Word alongside you to equip you to apply its riches to your daily joys, questions, and challenges.
She recently celebrated 25 years as an author, writing coach, editor, and conference speaker. Her ministry-defining project released in 2010: The Julie-Allyson Ieron Bible Reference Collection on WORDsearch 9.0. It features 9 of Julie’s books linked with 75 Bible reference resources. Additionally, most of her books are available in MP3 audio and e-book formats, as well as print. Her book, The Overwhelmed Woman’s Guide to … Caring for Aging Parents is a featured resource for Focus on the Family, where she was a radio guest.
Julie is excited about her newest book: The God Interviews: Questions You Would Ask; Answers God Gives, scheduled to release from Leafwood Publishing in Autumn 2012.
Julie’s personal life is as dynamic as her writing. She is her dad’s medical advocate, and along with her mom Joy (who is quick to point out she’s not Julie’s aging parent!) daily administers his tests, meds, and shots. In more relaxed times, Julie and Joy play violin and organ duets for weddings and church services (sometimes for funerals, too). Julie plays violin in her church’s orchestra, dabbles in art for fun, and plays a killer game of Scrabble™.
Today we celebrated my first son’s birthday.
He is now twelve years old and has his own circle of friends. He is just like me: a mind full of questions. Plus he loves to write. He writes beautiful poems and short stories like a professional novelist. I believe that is one of the talents that the Lord gave him. I ask myself: how can a little boy write like a professional novelist without any training? I can only praise God for this gift.
I remember the minute my son came into the world as a new-born baby. So cute. As his father, I will continue to watch over him until the day I return to the ground.
For his birthday, I pray that the Lord may keep him safe and protected in all circumstances, and that the Lord may keep watching over him as His eye is always on the sparrow.
I haven’t written a real article since December 2011 because I have been very busy working on my first Christian romance novel and learning the craft of writing. I am sorry that I haven’t had the time to visit your blogs. Please accept my apology.
Some of you have already known that my very dear friend Kody went home to be with the Lord last October after battling his cancer for a year. He was only 32 on earth. I said this because he still lives in my heart and is enjoying his eternal life in the Kingdom of God, where our Lord Jesus Christ is. Read the rest of this entry »
