Those Who Went Before Us by B J Bassett

 

Those Who Went Before Us


Do you see what this means—all these pioneers who blazed the way, all these veterans cheering us on? Hebrews 12:1MSG

I loved the little church where I became a Christian. Our young pastor was seven feet tall, and we felt loved and blessed by him and his wife. I was active in the youth group and sang in a quartet.

One Sunday, my friends had come over to my house to swim in our pool, and when it was time to attend the evening service, one of the girls had forgotten to bring her shoes to my house. So the four of us decided to go to church and sit in the front row. The only one who might notice we weren’t wearing shoes would be our beloved pastor.

He asked us to stand and sing Beneath the Cross of Jesus. So we did. We got the giggles, and only one of us kept singing with her strong alto voice, which made us laugh all the more.

I’m so grateful for those who cheered me on then and still cheering me on today in the race marked out for me.

Who can we cheer on today?

Father, I pray I never forget those who went before me. Those who not only accepted me but loved me and helped me grow spiritually. Amen.

The Proposal Kick-Off Package and #giveaway!!!

 


About the Book

Book:  The Proposal

Author: Tanya Eavenson

Genre: Christian Historical Romance

Release date: June 15, 2021



Oklahoma 1891

When the sheriff’s daughter goes into hiding from her father’s killer, her
life isn’t the only thing in danger.

Jessica Thomson is fleeing the man who killed her father. But her
stagecoach is robbed, and when the stranger who rescues her declares she
will be his wife, she does the only thing she knows to do—shove her revolver
in his back. Never would she have expected he wore a star on his chest. Too
bad she vowed never to love another lawman.

As sheriff, Blake McKenny prides himself on protecting his town’s people
from danger, but his efforts didn’t include a headstrong woman bent on
putting herself in harm’s way. When outlaws threaten his town and put
Jessica’s life in danger, Blake’s failure to save his late wife haunts him.

Can Jessica and Blake forgive themselves for the past and protect each
other—even if that costs them their hearts in the process?

  

The Proposal is a poignant and action packed story from the start to the finish. This historical Christian romance is pictorial and expressive penned with dialogue that held my attention from the start to the last word. Jessica is one strong, spirited, and determined woman and is on the run.  A sudden proposal by Blake caused alarm when she discovered he was a lawman. Having no choice but to remain in town Jessica found more than she anticipated. Her choice was to leave but time wasn’t on her side.

 

The characters are likable even with their flaws and secrets. Eavenson created a fantastic story line with a solid Christian message interwoven with all the danger and caring residents of the town and ranch. It was nice to connect up with the characters from book one, The Rescue, but The Proposal can be read as a standalone. This book is appropriately titled just like The Rescue was for the hero and heroine. I look forward to the next book in the All Roads Lead to Texas series.

 

I received a complimentary e-book from Celebrate Lit without any obligation to write a positive review. I have expressed my own opinion with my review.

Fiction to Reality

Ever had those moments when you’re reading a novel and it’s as if the author wrote the story line, the characters, or included verses just for you? When your world turns from fiction to reality with the flip of a page?

 

At the beginning of December in 2014, I took a novel from my bookshelf, snuggled on the couch with a blanket, and began to read. The title of the novel is called The Rancher’s Reunion by Tina Radcliffe. The hero in the story is Will, and he has a hereditary disease that caused him to fear, not only his future, but in trusting God. And that’s when God used this story to speak to me.

 

“I’m scared, Annie.”

“I know, Will. I know.” She blinked back the moisture pricking her eyes.

“No, Annie. I don’t think you do. I’m not just scared. I’m terrified.”

 

And I understood Will’s fear. Weeks prior to reading this novel, my doctor told me I have cancer. It’s a single word that can change the course of your life, emotionally, physically, but not only yours, others around you. And though I knew God’s presence would be with me no matter what the future held, my desire to write or edit anything had vanished. Honestly, I wasn’t sure I wanted to write anymore with my future so uncertain. I wasn’t just scared, but terrified my time with my family would be shortened.

 

But as I continued to read Will’s story, God’s whispered words, Do not be afraid of things you cannot control, pray, and continue your call to write, took hold and draped around my heart.

I knew at that moment this book was meant to be read at this appointed time. That God was leading me to give Him every single fear, open my laptop, and begin to write again.

 

During the time I’d stopped writing, I was in the middle of two stories, a contemporary romance, and The Rescue, the first story in the All Roads Lead to Texas series. It took some months before I returned to writing, but I had to give my fears to God the only way I could. Like Will and Annie’s story, day by day. Moment by moment.

 

In my new novel, The Proposal, the second story in the All Roads Lead to Texas series, Jessica Thompson understands fear and must learn how to give it to God. She has her father’s killer on her trail and the only means for escape is to run, but she never counted on the sheriff of Graham, Texas, to get in her way.

 

Have you ever had a time in your life where fear caught you so unexpectedly that you didn’t know what to do next? Perhaps you didn’t know where to turn? Maybe couldn’t pray?

 

I’m here to tell you it’s okay. God knows how you feel, good or bad, it doesn’t change His love for you. Just remember, He’s with you, by your side through it all. He will never leave you.
