“Norah’s World”

My three year old granddaughter is a joy.

She has an incredible sense of adventure, a hilarious sense of humor and the ability to make you laugh. She is absolutely gorgeous(no bias here), loves to play dress up, go down her slide a bazillion times and buzz around the room like a race car driver.

She loves her school, friends and teachers. She has the ability to make you feel as though you are the most important person in the room. She loves fiercely. Her smile lights up the room and all my social media posts.

She is now a big sister, and handling that responsibility well. She is a typical three year old, of course. She has a fit now and then when things don’t go her way, and she is quite opinionated and strong willed!

And Norah has Cerebral Palsy. She uses a wheel chair, a walker, and sign language. She does things a little differently, but don’t we all? As a former special education teacher, I always taught by students that they just leaned differently than others, not better…not worse…just different. Norah is perfect.

McKenna, Norah’s sweet friend, began to ask her momma about Norah. Lacee found that there were very few books that address inclusivity and normal questions that many children have about friends that are different than them. So, she wrote a book…”Norah’s World.”

It can be found on Amazon https://www.amazon.com/Norahs-World-Lacee-Johnson/dp/B09MYXSPQX/ref=sr_1_1?crid=1G53O0AEW432T&keywords=Norahs+World&qid=1643833127&sprefix=norahs+world%2Caps%2C272&sr=8-1

I highly recommend this book! It is very important reading for all the children in your life. Inclusiveness and acceptance is the primary theme in this delightful book. All libraries, schools, parents, grandparents need books like this. Yes, it is my granddaughter and I might be a bit bias….but it is well written and beautifully illustrated.

Thanks dear ones..

A New Arrival

Finally. The second novel in the UNEXPECTED GIFT series has arrived.

“FICTION THAT ENCOURAGES.”

I wrote another book in between, “Seaside Change-A Novella, 30 Day Devotional and Discussion Guide.” Then, there were several bumps in the road the last three years with my Valley Fever illness, skin cancers and our global pandemic! But it is finally “live” on Amazon!! I have copies coming soon.

The first book in the series, “Peace in the Midst” came out before our first granddaughter was born in 2018. Now, our second granddaughter is about to be born and the second one is coming out! They are my inspiration.

I told my daughter-in-love that there is one more book in the series, she declined to be part of the inspiration. LOL

I have attached an “ad” that I finally paid for on FB since I could not get around the algorithm. Oh well, hopefully it will be worth the extra cost.

These books have been in my heart for over 28+ years. Many excuses were made to “not do it.” God’s timing is perfect and He has helped me through this process. I have learned to edit, proof, use tools in which to make myself a better writer.

I have been so fortunate to have teachers and friends who could help through the undertaking of writing; as well as a wonderful program I have used for grammar, punctuation, and even passive verbs..which have rocked my world! I taught special education children for years and we must have skipped that part of writing.

I have learned to format for different types of books, create and format covers with the help of my artist husband, who continues to paint the most wonderful canvas paintings. He listens as I try to explain what I am seeing in my head. He has gotten it perfect three times now. I am bragging on him!

Now, am I bragging on myself? I guess a bit. But, I also am encouraging those of you who have something on your heart that you know you are called to do.

Now is the time.

If this 61 year old gal just published her third book in three years, God will equip you to do what He calls you to do!

The series is based on John 16:33(AMP) It has spoke volumes to me since 2018. May it encourage you today.

“I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace. In this world you will have tribulation and distress and suffering, but be courageous [be confident, be undaunted, be filled with joy]; I have overcome the world.”[My conquest is accomplished, My victory abiding.]

“Seaside Change” Finally!

This took a while. This is a unique book, almost “4 books in 1.” It is a novella with a 30-Day Devotional, Discussion Guide, and scripture references reaffirming our identity in Christ.

Formatting was the challenge, because the book contains lines for notes and reflection. But it is finished!

I have not blogged in a while, determined to complete this before my granddaughter’s first birthday. It was August 5, so I almost made it.

I hope to get back to blogging more on a regular basis, but I am working on Book 2 of the “Unexpected Gift Series”, TAKE HEART. I have goals….LOL

May you be encouraged today dear ones!
