With more than 140 million copies of her books in print, Debbie Macomber is one of today's most popular authors. The #1 New York Times bestselling author is best known for her ability to create compelling characters and bring their stories to life. Drawing on her own experiences and observations, Debbie writes from the heart in this very personal devotional book, opening a window into the faith of the writer behind the stories. In her true first-person devotions, learn about how God transformed her marriage and her heart, how a Bible verse helped simplify her life, how she learned to not just pray but to listen, and how she sees God's fingerprints all over her life. Through chapters like 'thank-You Notes to God' and 'Be a Blessing,' readers will be encouraged to see the patterns of God's grace making their own lives beautiful.
Debbie Macomber had only a high school degree and was dyslexic. She was also the young mother of four children. No one believed she had what it took to write a book. She eventually saved enough money to rent an old typewriter, and every night she would sit down to write. She wrote for years. But each time she mailed a story off to a publisher, it was returned. Five years later, she received a letter in the mail from Silhouette Books saying they wanted to buy her story. Her first novel, Heartsong, was published as a Silhouette Inspiration in 1984, and it became the first romance novel ever to be reviewed in Publishers Weekly. Today, Macomber is an internationally acclaimed author of more than 100 novels. Big Brothers/Big Sisters of America appointed Macomber an ambassador for the national office in 1997. Several of her novels have achieved the number-one spot on Waldenbooks bestseller lists and earned spots on the USA Today bestseller list. A three-time winner of the impressive B. Dalton Award, she is also the recipient of Romantic Times Magazines distinguished Lifetime Achievement Award. She has also made the New York Times bestseller list with her novel, Promise, Texas.
