Charlotte is a successful romance novelist who escapes city life and moves to the small town of Crispens Point in Blackberry County.

When a friend invites her to attend a local community church, Charlotte is attracted to the pastor, but refuses to acknowledge that attraction because of some dark things in her past.

What is unique about JoHannah Reardon’s romances?
JoHannah Reardon loves to write “Jane Austin” type of romances in contemporary settings. For example, the pastor’s personality in this story is similar to Mr. Darcy’ personality in Pride and Prejudice. Just as Darcy seems one way at the beginning of the book and quite another way at the end, so does the pastor in this story. So, at the start he may not be everyone’s idea of a romantic lead, but by the end he proves himself truly loving.
Also, you will never find gorgeous women and extremely handsome men in JoHannah Reardon’s stories. She prefers to write about the person next door who you may wave to as you pull out of your driveway each day. Her romances are lighthearted and funny, but not mushy. And her characters’ faith informs everything they do.
What will rule our hearts: fear or compassion?
We can’t ignore the refugee crisis—arguably the greatest geo-political issue of our time—but how do we even begin to respond to something so massive and complex?
In Seeking Refuge, three experts from World Relief, a global organization serving refugees, offer a practical, well-rounded, well-researched guide to the issue.
Who are refugees and other displaced peoples?
What are the real risks and benefits of receiving them?
How do we balance compassion and security?
Drawing from history, public policy, psychology, many personal stories, and their own unique Christian worldview, the authors offer a nuanced and compelling portrayal of the plight of refugees and the extraordinary opportunity we have to love our neighbors as ourselves.

A memoir of overcoming pain, fear and doubt, and allowing faith to lead the way to a miraculous life.
You can only resist God’s call for so long. Ask Moses, ask Paul… ask MaryAnne Connor.
As the owner of a successful real estate marketing firm, MaryAnne Connor, appeared to have it all. A happy marriage, the respect of her peers and a thriving career. But denial was her stronghold, and her enemy. She suffered from chronic pain, a dependency on pain medication and her marriage was failing.
And then there were God’s whispers. They were getting louder. He wanted her to shift to a life of helping others. But how could He use her when she was so broken?
After years of resistance, she surrendered to His call, left everything behind and stepped onto the darkest streets of her city. There she found a kinship with other broken-hearted souls and the burning desire to help the poor and hungry. And so the genesis of NightShift Street Ministries began, along with an incredible series of miracles to conquer every obstacle put in her path.
Purchase The Shift today, walk in MaryAnne’s footsteps and take a remarkable journey to a place of love, hope & purpose.

Two Hearts, One God.? Should Anything Else Matter?
Zora Nella Hampton Johnson knows exactly where she comes from—and her daddy won’t let her forget. Of course for that privilege he keeps her in Prada and Kate Spade, Coach and YSL. He chooses her boyfriend, her car, her address, and ignores her love of painting, art, and the old ways of her grandaddy’s soulful AME church—where the hymns pleaded, cajoled, and raised the roof. Her daddy may be a preacher, but some-where among the thousands of church members, the on-site coffee house, and the JumboTron, Zora lost God. And she wants Him back.
Nicky Parker, a recent graduate of Berkeley and reformed playboy, also suffers the trials of being a preacher’s kid, and he can’t remember the last time he saw eye-to-eye with his white, racist, Southern Baptist father. What he does remember—and it will be forever burned in his brain despite myriad prayers to Jesus—is the way Zora looked the first time he saw her. Like Nefertiti. Only better. When they meet at a bible study far from their respective home churches, the first churlish, sarcastic sparks that fly sizzle with defensiveness. But God has a special way of feeding the flames and though of different flocks, these two lost sheep will find Him and much, much more.
