  1. I love Lori’s stories! I’m excited to read Mountain Laurel!!!

    My first line comes from Jonathan Cahn’s new release The Harbinger II The Return.

    “Where do we begin?” he asked.


  2. Happy Friday! On my blog I’m sharing from a non-fiction text called Just Show Up by Kara Tippetts and Jill Lynn Buteyn. I’m just beginning chapter 3 so I’ll share a line from there.
    “Years ago, the pastor who baptized our daughter was diagnosed with ALS.”
    Hope you have a great weekend! 🙂❤📚


  3. My first line is from The Haunting At Bonaventure Circus by Jaime Jo Wright:

    Life was not unlike the wisp of fog that curled around the base of a grave marker, softly caressing the marble before dissolving into the violet shadow of the night.

    Lori’s book is in the mail!
