BACK TO SCHOOL

Judith Here: 

When things like our job loss happens, I want time to stop until that one thing is righted. But no matter how much I want it to, it doesn’t.

Public school is back in session here, so that means it’s time to start home school too. I am really grateful that I never got rid of any of our past curriculum because this year one child moved up into their older sibling’s stuff. Like a hand me down but for education.

I like us all being here together. When is this time ever going to come again? Life just moves forward whether we want it to or not. As to what direction it takes depends on our decisions. We have learned to worry about what we can control today and let tomorrow take care of its self.

MORE TIME

Judith here:

With Scott unemployed people at church grab my hand and look into my eyes and tell me how sorry they are.

But I feel blessed. I feel blessed because one thing we have more of, is time. More time to be together, more time to write and more time with God. We are able to read his word more as a family and as individuals. We have more time to seek Him in prayer. I feel grateful for this time.

The world is on fire. From the ashes like a phoenix rises a new America, one that will save it all. Under one condition; absolute and complete surrender. The world complies without question. Those who don’t are destroyed. It is in this world, John is born. His very name is treason. If the New America, now known to everyone as the State, knew what John was, they’d kill him, but instead they give him a gift.

This is an awesome book about a 15 year old boy named John trying to survive in a world that is controlled by a corrupt government. His family installs into him deep Christian morals and beliefs that him see beyond the mask of the government tries to portray. Also his martial arts training that his dad comes in handy throughout the book. – Amazon Customer

This book took me by surprise, I felt everything John was describing and found myself rooting for him throughout the story! He is not like other teens and he is so smart. Loved reading about his family, his faith, and his courage. I hope he makes it, but he is definitely capable of anything and a worthy hero. –Amazon Customer

How Our Marriage Works

Judith here:

Last week I came to the realization that despite the fact that Scott is the most wonderful awesome husband and best friend a girl could ever want, he is not what makes our marriage work.

You see I am shy, introverted and sometimes difficult to get along with and so I thought Scott was so amazing that he filled in all the gaps in our marriage. But as great as Scott is he is not the one. The one that makes our marriage work is Christ (Scott already knew this).

Christ is our mediator, our marriage councilor; he is our best friend and closest confidant. When we cannot talk to each other we can always talk to Him. And He helps us find our way back to Him and to each other.

He even makes it possible for us to write together. Scott sees what I see, he knows what I know and when I don’t know what to do he does and vice versa. Scott always reminds me to say prayer before I write, “Pray first Judith.” If it is not going well he will ask, did you pray?

To keep everybody updated we are still without work this week, no interviews in sight, we have applied for so many jobs that I can’t keep track but luckily Scott does. But we have Christ, He is here and He wants what’s best for us. One of the reasons I know that is because he gave me Scott.

Judith Here:

Well we are still unemployed. We have been unemployed since March. I am not really sure what is going on. We’ve applied for a number of jobs. Even some with a great pay cut, but nothing. This is not surprising since there is only around 31 banking jobs in the Birmingham area right now. This from a city whose main industry was once banking. We are very frugal and could easily live off less than what we were making but this does not seem to make a difference. We have tried to look out of state or in other industries but no one will interview us.

Despite all this I do not think you could find a happier woman anywhere. I love hanging out with Scott, there is no one else I’d rather be with. I think I have some of the most wonderful children. And we love to spend time together. I believe all of us have become closer during this time.

I trust in Jesus Christ, who I know loves me and wants what’s best for me. He is actively involved in my life.

I feel peace in knowing that he loves me and that the things that we are going through have a reason and a purpose. God is doing a work with us, He is making us more fit for his kingdom I truly believe.

Good News

Judith Here

Good news we just finished the first draft of The Unexpected Kingdom, The Last Enchantress sequel.

Bad news Scott lost his job this spring.

Good news this gave us some extra time to write.

Hopefully we will have the first pages up for everyone sometime next week.

Sorry to everyone who has been waiting and wanting more from us. About 2 years ago we lost our job the first time but we picked up a temporary job. We looked and looked for work. Looking took all our extra time. That job ended February this year. As much as it has been hard it’s also been great. Scott’s my best friend and I love spending time with him.  The Unexpected Kingdom, has turned out better than I imagined. I am grateful to a loving God for this time.

7 Things to Do or Get Your Co-Author Wife When She is Angry With You

 

  1. Give her the day off from the kids. Seems easy but Nyquil may be needed in order to survive the event!
  2.  Cook dinner. Unless you can actually cook you may want to order out or she may become even more upset with what you serve. Ramon noodles is not considered a romantic dinner.
  3.  Say you will clean the entire house. Sounds simple but have you ever tried doing all the laundry for five people! How do kids go through so many clothes!
  4.  Buy her some cool outfits. Yes this requires opening up the wallet but what’s more important your wallet or surviving the Tsunami? If you think the latter I hope you can hold your breath for a very, very long time!
  5.  Gift card to Amazon to buy digital books! Trust me this goes a long way for book lovers!
  6.  Membership with Scribd. Let me tell you if you are looking to save money and still appease the book goddess this is the way to go! My Co-Author Wife can read a book within hours! It’s like me at the all you can eat shrimp bar!
  7.  If you are in real deep then I would apply all of the above and hope for the best! Remember eventually she has to forgive you, right?
