Merry Christmas

I love, love receiving Christmas cards and photos in the mail around this time of year. Unfortunately, my hot-mess-ness has prevented that from happening around our house for a few years now. 🙂 But I still want to wish you all a Merry Christmas, so I hope this electronic version will do.




This was an eventful year for our family, with our family business keeping us quite busy. I had two books release. Her Texas Cowboy in May, which was the end of the Texas series, and The Rancher’s Surprise Daughter in August, which was the first in the Colorado Grooms series. It never gets old seeing books sporting my name on the store shelves. That little girl in me who read voraciously and dreamed of one day writing a book still squeals at the sight. My next book, The Rancher’s Unexpected Baby, will be on shelves shortly after Christmas. (1-15-19)

Our kids have been busy with school and friends and sports. They just keep on growing even though I often request that they stop or slow down. But just like in other things, they definitely aren’t listening to me. 😉




We’ve had many answered prayers this year. Some after years of seeking. Others we’re still waiting to see where God leads. Mostly, we’re just thankful. Thankful for each other, for family and friends and blessings and the promise that God never leaves us in the good or the hard.

Many blessings and Merry Christmas to you all.

Jen brought us to my absolute favorite red barn for some family photos. I couldn’t believe it when we got there!


In bookish news, I’m doing a giveaway for my January 15th release. Check it out here or over on my news page.

  1. I adore the Love Inspired series of Harlequin books and can hardly wait each month until they appear on the shelves. They’re such a blessing to be able to read romance stories that are also inspirational.

  2. I can’t handle how gorgeous you all are… especially you, Jill. Those eyes!!!!! Thank you for writing books for me, Jill. I think other people read them too, but you know, that was “bound” to happen.
