Upheld

 

Five women have joined together under the pen name, Grace Lane, to write about their personal experiences in hopes to inspire and uplift others.  The following character sketches will give you a little insight about each author.


Rebekah: 
Writing about motherhood and her husband’s health struggles, Rebekah lives true to the meaning of her name—to bind. Life’s experiences have shaped her into a wise, steadfast daughter of God who has the beautiful ability to make others laugh through her clever wit.
Jeni: 
Jeni’s stories revolve around the loving care of her son with special needs. Knowing that he will not live out his childhood, she’s armed with strength and determination to give him the best life possible. The bright hope Jeni finds through the Savior will encourage the lowest of hearts.
Elizabeth:
Elizabeth is passionate about sharing the Light of Christ. You’ll feel this in reading about the challenges she faces with her spouse’s addiction and divorce. Through sophistication, uplifting words, and a touch of spunk, she’s a modern-day disciple “gathering in the fold” and feeding His sheep.
Faith:
A woman of intuition, Faith has a distinctive gift for understanding people. Her personal goal in life is to help women recognize their potential in whatever role they fill. She writes about her battle in overcoming abuse as a child and her fight with low self-esteem.
 
Dawn:

 

A single mom for ten years, Dawn not only believes the motto “Light trumps darkness”, but she lives it every day. Her short stories are about finding God after a heart-crushing divorce. Dawn touches many lives through her unwavering testimony and simple ways.

Upheld: Ordinary women discovering an Extraordinary God
Life happens. Ordinary and extraordinary events fill the days and nights, but regardless of the circumstance, God is there. We’re five friends who, over the course of a decade, learned to recognize the heavenly touches in our lives. We share our stories in a series of short vignettes, as glimpses of the profound and practical ways God lifts us.

First as a newlywed and then as a young mother, Rebekah awakens to the daily light that comes from realizing how often and simply the Lord touches her life. Jeni nurtures a child with special needs and learns that strength and support are only a prayer away. Elizabeth forges a new path towards renewal and regeneration after she exits the roller coaster ride of her spouse’s addiction. Faith discovers the beauty of reminders from a loving Heavenly Father that she has worth and the precious gift of agency. Dawn opens her mind to the understanding that no matter what happens peace can abound and everything will work out.

In Upheld: Ordinary women discovering an Extraordinary God we invite you to walk with us, explore the nooks and crannies of life, and have joy in the knowledge that you are not forgotten. As you read, we hope you will also discover God upholding you in your own life.

For Serena Richards, fear and entrapment wasn’t something she signed up for. Her mother has changed since her best friend Brandon left. College seemed to be her only way out. Then it happened. Brandon returned, not as her best friend, but something so much more. He is her taste of freedom. A look at a future she didn’t think she could have.

For Brandon Eliot, coming back to Stewartsville meant peace and a second chance. Leaving was a mistake, and he regretted letting her get away. That all changes when he sees her wild hair and chocolate eyes.

Finally Gertie (Raineyville Series)

Publication Date: March 2, 2018

My name is Gertie Meyer. At thirty-eight, I’m perfectly happy being single and living the life of a hermit. Social interaction? Loathe it with a thousand passions. It ranks number one on my list of things to avoid at all costs. The walls around my heart give me the quiet protection I desire until they’re shattered one day in a mere blink of an eye. When a man crashes into my life and tries to make me feel again, I realize that I can’t fight change, it’s inevitable. I don’t like it, but what choice do I have when he’s helping me accomplish my life’s dream? And why is he stirring something inside I’d kept locked in the dark depths of my soul?

My name is Zeke Bradley. If I was alive, I’d be a forty-year-old man. But no, ever since my life ended eight years ago, my soul has been trapped in limbo. Now I’m the guardian of a woman who is physically alive, but emotionally dead. Helping her become the woman she is meant to be, I might just find the answers to help me move on from my own self-imposed hell. Finally, I’ve discovered a purpose. It shouldn’t be too hard, except Gertie has serious issues with change. Leaving me with quite the task to accomplish, having us both face ourselves.

Teenager Sam Timmins, school outcast and total nerd, is saved one day from getting run over by the wind. Only it isn’t the wind that saves him, but a mysterious wind-sprite named Esther. The result of a botched lab experiment, Esther and her mother, Nita, the lead scientist on a matter-transportation project, now exist as wind beings.

Sam begins a relationship with Esther, even though he cannot see or even hold Esther, but they grow as close as two people can under the circumstances.

The forces of evil, though, will not be denied. Morton Ramsay, the head of the project, needs Esther and Nita back for his own purposes. He sends his two chief henchmen, Harsky and Stutch, to intimidate Sam. When that doesn’t work, they resort to murdering his mother.

Now, Sam is out for revenge. Aided by Esther and her mother, he finds out just who he is and what he is capable of. More than that, he finds out what science is capable of creating—and destroying.
