I seem to be gravitating toward books in my own library. Ones I didn‘t even know I had. This one for instance by Willard Scott. Some of you may remember him from the Today Show as a weatherman? … Oh sorry…a Meteorologist. I liked watching him because he always doled-out the temperatures with a side of humor. Does he still do the Today Show? I haven’t seen him on television in a while. So anyway….drifting off the path here.

Murder Under Blue Skies is a Young Adult novel about Stanley Waters who, no surprise, is a weatherman who spews weather antics on an early morning show. He buys a Bed and Breakfast when he semi-retires then finds himself embroiled in a murder when one of his guests drops dead. This is a light read notwithstanding the mystery and red-herring clues.

 A bit of trivia about Willard Scott (1934 – ) that you may or may not know: in his earlier career he became the spokesperson for McDonalds’ restaurant chain as the first Ronald McDonald, and for a time, in the early 1960s, in addition to his radio work, Willard Scott was Bozo The Clown on a local children’s TV show.

Scott has authored many books, but the Stanley Waters’ murder mysteries are my favorite.

The Whisper of God

Years ago, I started writing down all the amazing ways God used my day-to-day activities, children, family, and nature to teach me. The more I wrote, the more I noticed our extraordinary God in my everyday ordinary life. It became an exercise of the heart and grew my relationship with Christ in a way I had never experienced. Opening up the Bible daily drew me into His will and wonderful ways. He was no longer a friend of a friend, but my personal friend. I began to hear God whisper His desires and lessons for me. Now, my goal is to encourage women to stop and listen for His whisper in their lives by sharing what God has taught me through my Bible Studies and devotionals.
