Pray And Trust God

Wait For Me by Jan Thompson is a contemporary Christian romantic suspense. It is the third book in the Vacation Sweethearts series but can be read as a stand-alone.

Find You Again by Jan Thompson

Delightful And Amusing

Find You Again by Jan Thompson is a delightful Christian romance. It is the eighth book in the Savannah Sweethearts series but can be read as a stand-alone.

As Christians we need to live in the light. Old secrets must be dealt with or we will build a wedge between us and others, and us and God. “The hidden sin that had pulled him away from God was no more.” Confession is good for the soul and it is freeing.
