 I especially want to welcome 



 ~ and ~


 Jason is offering a GIVE~AWAY

Follow the directions below. . . you may copy and paste:


New Novel From Christian Author Jason McIntire - "Flight School: One Summer, Many Choices"

If you've read The Sparrow Found A House by Jason McIntire (Elisha Press, 2013), you'll already know his style: Real-life situations addressed with equal parts humor and biblical wisdom. It's a combination reviewers find powerful. They've used the words intriguing, believable, captivating, and unique - among many others - to describe his writing. The Sparrow Found A House (which is available as a free Kindle download from Elisha Press) was also endorsed by Exodus Mandate, the prominent homeschooling action group. It tells the story of the Rivera-Sparrows, a newly-blended and newly-homeschooling family facing opposition from without and within.
Today Elisha Press is announcing the release of a sequel to The Sparrow Found A House - and to celebrate, they're giving away signed copies to four randomly-selected winners. You can enter the giveaway here, or go ahead and order the book on Amazon. It's $2.99 for the Kindle version, or $9.99 for the 256-page print edition.
Flight School follows the Rivera kids as they meet new friends, explore careers, and encounter the challenges and choices that come with adult life. As a homeschool graduate himself, Jason knows the things that matter most to homeschoolers, and how to write about those things in a way that will edify, resonate, and entertain.
"If you like Flight School," Jason says, "thank God. If you don't like it, blame me."

A delight to read. I was immediately drawn in when in the first chapter Jason wrote about the CONURES. . .gotta say. . .this gal as a soft spot for Sun Conures, having been owned by a male we called Brooster. . .so Jason, you did a great hook there and I'm not talking parrot bill.
The book is a great story for ages 12 and upward. As an adult, I had no trouble staying interested through to the inevitable THE END! I'm going to have to read Jason's previous story - THE SPARROW FINDS A HOME. . .I have a nearly-nine year old grandson who LOVES chapter books. . .Christmas is coming. . .just sayin', followers! 

Be sure to encourage Jason in his writing endeavors. . .leave a comment and/or GET THAT BOOK!

Thanks for stopping by Journeys to Joy this week!

To Soar On Eagle's Wings ~ Renee Blare

Renee Blare has released two books so far this year through her publisher ~ 

Her first ~ BEAST OF STRATTON ~ which has been featured here at Journeys To Joy ~ but her latest release ~ To Soar On Eagle's Wings ~ released Saturday, July 11, 2015.

 Welcoming Renee Blare back to Journeys To Joy ~  

Raised in Louisiana and Wyoming, Renee started writing poetry in junior high school and that, as they say, was that. After having her son, a desire to attend pharmacy school sent her small family to the University of Wyoming in Laramie, and she's been counting pills ever since. While writing's her first love, well, after the Lord and husband, she also likes to fish and hunt as well as pick away on her classical guitar.
Nestled against the Black Hills with her husband, crazy old dog and ornery cat, she serves the community of northeastern Wyoming as a pharmacist and pens her Christian stories, keeping them interesting with action and intrigue, of course. She loves to interact with readers and invites you check out her website, blog, and social media.

To Soar On Eagle's Wings ~

Spring’s in the air. While the sun shines in Timber Springs, snow falls on the Snowy Range, and trouble’s brewing in the meadows. The area’s new game warden, Steve Mitchell launches his first wildlife investigation of the season but the trouble follows him—straight to town.

Rachel Fitzgerald’s on Spring Break. Or at least she’s trying. Between paperwork, and harassing phone calls, she may as well have stayed in her classroom. So much for relaxation. A ‘chance’ meeting with her brother’s old roommate offers her weary soul a shred of hope, but she discovers love, like life, isn’t easy.

He talks with the wisdom of the Lord but rejects the future. She wants to soar with the eagles but walks alone. And trusting God proves to be more of a challenge than ever before…

Leave a comment for Renee and I'll enter your name in the drawing for a free copy of To Soar On Eagle's Wings to take place Sunday night - July 19th

Become a follower of Journeys To Joy and I'll enter your name twice!

I've read both of Renee's books ~ I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the SNOWY RANGE CHRONICLES as soon as it comes out too.

To Soar On Eagle's Wings is a book filled with good characterizations, tension, conflict, romance, and the plot keeps you involved in the story! Be sure to read this one!

Thank you for coming by Journeys To Joy ~ Have a blessed day
