I'm including an excerpt from The Cross and The Rainbow:

From page 239,


What giants are you facing? Is it a health issue, are your parents sick, your children, or are you facing the loss of a loved one.

A friend recently shared her parents are both sick. One has the flu and the other in the hospital, not knowing what the problem is.

That doesn't seem like a big problem, but if you listen to her, you realize her young son has cancer.  He is in remission now, although he has been struggling with the disease for about eight years.

Another friend struggles with financial issues.  They lost their house, even though she works two jobs and her husband has a job and does additional work at the Church.

Another friend is on a cruise.  She's so lucky.

Maybe, but before you judge her, she got permission from her doctor. She has breast cancer, had a double mastectomy and now has lymph-node cancer and will be facing six months chemo and then radiation the day after she comes home from the cruise.

We each have our own giants to face.  Some of us have bigger giants.

Today I would love to hear from you, telling me how you helped a friend facing a giant.

Did you take her/him to the doctor and sit with them? Did you pray for them? Did you send them a card?

Or maybe you are facing your own giants.

There are so many things we can do for each other. So many ways to help each other "face their giant".

We never know when a "giant" will be lurking just around the corner.

We do know the Lord will be there waiting, loving us and giving us the "armor" we need to face those giants.

Remember, when you have a friend help "push", it's not nearly as difficult.

Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.

A new excerpt from The Shorter Version, page 204


My son thinks he wants to join the Army or the Navy. He's not aware that he won't be allowed to sleep in on Saturday.  He says he's tired of me nagging him about taking out the trash or picking up his clothes.  As he walks through the house you can tell where he's been. His shoes or boots and socks are usually in the family room. His coat is on a dining room chair. And he normally leaves a gun part or a knife on the kitchen counter, right beside the peanut butter jar.  His eating habits are strange too. It's not strange for him to eat a box of cereal, or a box of Pop Tarts in one day.  He usually sits in front of the TV with a gallon of milk and a box of cereal and a large mixing bowl.  His idea of a rough day is not shooting a deer, or catching a 50 pound fish.  When he comes home from work he likes to take a nap while I'm cooking dinner, and if he falls asleep he doesn't want us to turn off the TV because it will wake him.  He thinks military life would be a lot easier than home.  All he needs me to do is write down most of my recipes, just in case he doesn't like whatever they cook for him.

“This book is a must read. Kathy is a Christian Erma Bombeck”

“I have been taking this little book with me to read during my

Chemo therapy treatments. While everyone else in the room is

somber I am able to laugh out loud. Thank you Kathy”





I stayed up all night reading Boone's Creek-Almost Home. I couldn't wait to turn the next page. I love the way you write.


I could not put your book down. This is a book that I wanted to be 400 -pages. Have you finished the next one? I can't wait to see what happens to Jenna, Libby, and Joe. I couldn't put it down.


Being from the Sebring area, I so enjoyed reading Boones Creek-Almost Home. I felt like I was in the car with Jenna driving through the orange groves. I loved it.


This is the only book of poetry I've written.

I'm including an excerpt from Beside The Still Waters..... from page 148


We've come to love you as we do

We feel your love for us too.

You stand beside your husband proud

You're always there lost in the crowd

Quiet and unassuming grace

The Lord smiles upon your face

We've always known

Your servants heart

That's why we've loved you

From the very start.

You lead our children

And grow them strong

Your love and charm

You keep them all

Safe from harm

We love you Char

And thank God this day

For bringing you here

To love you and to pray.

A birthday is a special time

To tell you how we feel

On this great day we share

We love your quiet zeal.

We thank the Lord above

For the plans He had for you

We thank you once again

For making them come true.

Happy Birthday Char.
