WE ALL WANT TO EXPERIENCE successful, even dramatic, spiritual growth. Yet we often feel as though we're taking "two steps forward, three steps back." As we learn--and relearn--the same spiritual lessons time and again, we become discouraged, thinking that we are not changing or growing. But, as author Carole Mayhall gently reminds us, such experiences are a normal, even vital, part of the healthy Christian life. With heart-warming vulnerability, Mayhall explains and illustrates that spiritual growth is a lifelong endeavor--but through it all, your heavenly Father is whispering, "I will uphold you. I will sustain you. I will carry you." Painting a vivid picture of a patient God who loves and shapes you, Here I Am Again, Lord offers solid reassurance and motivation to significantly encourage you in your walk with Christ.
The second novel from the New York Times bestselling author of If You Were Here takes us back to the hair metal 80's. Twenty years after ruling the halls of her suburban Chicago high school, Lissy Ryder doesn’t understand why her glory days ended. Back then, she was worshipped...beloved...feared. Present day, not so much. She’s been pink-slipped from her high-paying job, dumped by her husband and kicked out of her condo. Now, at thirty-seven, she’s struggling to start a business out of her parents’ garage and sleeping under the hair-band posters in her old bedroom. Lissy finally realizes karma is the only bitch bigger than she was. Her present is miserable because of her past. But it’s not like she can go back in time and change who she was...or can she?
Here We Go Again continues from the book A New Groom Sleeps Clean: A Likely Story. It has been written at the request of a number of people who seemed to like the first book but wanted to know more about Margot and her relationship with Sam. What happens to themtogether or apart? In this book, Margot has a great deal to do, even more than before. She must decide where to live, what to do with her fathers house, and perhaps most important of all, how or if to manage her relationship with Sam. Apparently, Sam loves her a great deal but not enough to always tell her the truth. Margot also has Sams family with whom to deal. His brothers are a particular problem. Margot also must always consider her two sisters who seem determined to leave no stone unturned in ruining her life, perhaps even killing her. Once they are in a safe facility, it doesnt necessarily mean they stay there. Fortunately, Detective Stein becomes someone on whom Margot can rely.

I have published two books now, part one and part two on here we go again; I am really enjoying writing about the trouble these boys get in to. My characters Kyle and Charlie are like chalk and cheese, but they are best of mates. Samuel might become their mate as well. Who knows what could happen next even Ivan might return and have a chance of becoming their mates. I would love to think that these books might bring some laughter and a smile upon some ones face, and if that happens then my work is done.
