Jenny Lynn’s Secret Mission is a humorous and heartwarming story of an eight-year-old that stumbles upon the true meaning of Christmas and reminds a community of Christmas’ true meaning as well. Jenny Lynn will cause us to step back to a place and time where family, church, and community were almost synonymous. She will take you to small-town USA where the beautifully displayed Christmas windows of the local Ben Franklin’s Five and Dime Variety Store, beckons you inside. She also invites you to an annual church Christmas program which will bring the whole community together and will reveal to you a little girl’s heart. Come away with her on this wonderful Christmas journey and let her reveal Christmas’ true meaning to you. Perhaps if you already know the true meaning and why Christmas should be celebrated, then simply let Jenny Lynn help you to rekindle the Christmas spirit in someone else who has possibly forgotten.

Jenny Lynn's Secret Mission

#1 Bestselling on Amazon Christine Gilliam Hornback

Jenny Lynn’s Secret Mission was the very first book I ever “called a book!”  I would handwrite Jenny’s story in a notebook for about two years to complete it. I rejoiced when I knew it was a finished story and had a whopping 128 handwritten pages.  At the time I never knew anything about Word Documents etc. but taught myself how to type it into a Word Document to have a Digital Manuscript to send it publishers.  That was way back in 2005, and it was published immediately.  However, that publisher went out of business, which was honestly one of the best things that could have happened as I republished Jenny Lynn’s Secret Mission and immediately it went #1 Bestselling on Amazon.  As with Jenny Lynn’s Secret Mission, the moral of my story is never give up, simply find another way to do your dream!  I say all of that to give this FREE EBOOK on KINDLE to you today and to wish each of you a Joy-Filled Merry Christmas and A Wonderful and Prosperous New Year!

Blessings,

I’m Leaving A Path for Other Wanna Be Authors to Follow!

23 Nov

I’m Leaving a Path for Other Wanna be Authors to Follow!

Follow those who are doing it!

Christine Gilliam Hornback, #1 Bestselling Author, Artist, Inspirational Speaker, and Owner of Birthing Your Dream Author Services! PURCHASE ALL OF MY BOOKS On My Amazon Author Page: amazon.com/author/christinehornback

I’m Leaving a Path for Other Wanna be Authors to Follow!  I am not being arrogant when I say what I say, but I am posting evidence of my books, journals, planners, diaries, etc.  Listen, believe me when I say to you that I understand the mistrust in Publishers, as I personally used a publisher that went out of business.  However, things like that can make you bitter or better.  This didn’t deter me, I simply had to find a way to continue doing the books that worked for me.  Yes, this may sound crazy, but when I was released from my publisher, I feel like it was a key to my freedom as I can now publish a book anytime I desire without waiting a year to do it. I can also market without permission and again waiting for approval!  I will always be grateful to my publishing company experience because they taught me the leg work that goes into publishing and how to create my best manuscripts to put into books!

So, I may not have had much knowledge at the beginning of the Publishing Process way back in 2005, but over the years, I have honed my craft. I’ve learned more and more about the process and will continue to be a student especially with all of the new technology that is available to authors!  However, because I have carved out a path for myself, I can and desire to leave it for others to follow and to learn.  This is why I have helped Authors do their books, to help them learn how to put in the leg work and give them their own publishing Freedom!  Below is another list of Books, Journals, Planners, etc that I’ve so enjoyed doing in that it lets me design and use my own artwork in many of them!

Christine Gilliam Hornback's Journals, Diaries, Planners, and Puzzle Books

Creating and Designing Book Covers using my own Artwork is a blast, this is just another perk of knowing how to publish my own books and having a wonderful time doing it! When you do your purpose, it doesn’t feel like work! PURCHASE ALL OF MY BOOKS On My Amazon Author Page: amazon.com/author/christinehornback

Do you have to know all that I know to get started!  Absolutely NOT!  As a matter of fact, I tell Authors if you have an idea of what you want to write about, write it, let it dump out of you onto pages.  Regardless of errors etc., simply get it down.  Worry about perfecting it afterward, so that the process will not be hindered!  I also encourage them with, “Hey, done is better than none!”  When I tell them that, it doesn’t mean that I recommend they put out trash, etc., Absolutely NOT!  It means they have to start and finish their first manuscript! Again, regardless of errors, or even researching, all of the perfecting and editing will come later, simply get it down!

I’m Leaving a Path for Other Wanna be Authors to Follow!  In this path are Fourteen years of experience in writing, self-publishing, marketing, creating, and designing.  If you are an Author, what path do you want to go down?  The wonderful thing about being an Author is it’s your choice to choose which path you’ll go down.  I highly recommend you find others whom you do trust and learn from them.  You do not have to invent the wheel, simply learn from those who are carving out the pathway for you to follow!  Blessings and Happy Writing!

I Help Authors Birth Their Babies!

11 Oct

I Help Authors Birth Their Babies!

It is such an honor when someone asks me to help them do their books. Because I myself am an Author, I seriously compare it to birthing a baby, as we carry these things for a long time before they are delivered to the world. I can not help everyone who desires to do a book, but I do the ones that I feel the Lord allows me to be apart of.

I wanted to share this precious book with you my audience because of the story behind it.  This precious lady, now in her Eighties, had gotten her book published before, however, the publisher that published it for her went out of business.  Unfortunately, she couldn’t order any more copies or anything, so the only choice she had was to republish.  However, most of the beautiful graphics, etc. were copyrighted and she really had to start over.  This was where I came in, being honest, and having no idea how long it would take me to complete everything, finally, we hit Publish and her wonderful book “baby” is the result!

Hello Friends and Family,

I am so excited to announce a wonderful recipe collection just in time for the Holidays:

Family Traditional Favorites A Hug from Me to You, by a precious woman,

Mavis McCain Sapp

Pinteret Darlene's Kindle Cover

 

I had the honor and privilege of working on Family Traditional Favorites A Hug from Me to You, which is an amazing 174 pg. recipe paperback book filled with 240 time-honored traditional comfort foods and family favorites such as “Nana’s Pot Roast with Sausage” or “Grandma’s Chicken and Dumplings.” However, that’s not all, please don’t let the word “Traditional” fool you into thinking this is just another old-fashion cookbook, absolutely not! Family Traditional Favorites A Hug from Me to You, is a beautifully designed and crafted book filled with amazing images of  generational cooks from different backgrounds and countries who knew not only how to prepare meals for their families, but also the cooks in this book knew how to prepare special dishes for elegant gatherings and parties, especially for the Holidays.

You will love all of the practical hints, and recipe notes and suggestions offered to help you cook your best meals.   As, Ms. Mavis, family members, and dear friends, added their favorites to the recipe pot,  this book came together like one of the comfort food recipes in Mavis McCain Sapp’s book, which will leave you feeling the love and hugs of each of the participants and wanting more!  You will not want to let this beautiful treasured collection pass by without adding it to your recipe/cookbook library and sharing it with those you love!

Swallow Dreams One Bite at a Time!

12 Aug

Swallowing Dreams One Bite at a Time!

Swallowing a Dream One Bite at a Time!

Big Dreams require continuous steps forward to see them become reality!

Swallow Dreams One Bite at a time! Dreams are meant to be walked out!  But how?  You might ask.  My answer to you is One step at a time…

I heard the joke, how do you eat an elephant?  One bite at a time!

Dreams for many of us are like elephants, way too big to fit anywhere in our lives.  Our dreams are usually too big to swallow, too big to hide and shove down and way too big to fulfill on our own.   Isn’t it amazing, though, that they fit perfectly in our imagination and heart.  You can see them in everything you do and they are more real to you than anything else that you know. You desire it more than anything else, but still, it seems elusive.  The most unhappy people I’ve met are those who have decided that their dreams were just too big and too crazy and so they just gave up on ever fulfilling them.

Jeremiah 29:11  (KJV) 11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

You know that I found that my craziest dreams, meaning dreams that were as huge as elephants and dreams that seemed to be delusional and impossible were the very dreams that the Lord himself had birthed into my life.  These are the dreams that I know I can’t fulfill on my own.  These are the dreams that I know are not possible unless God makes provision, sets me up with divine appointments and connections and provides funds for me to do it.  But I have great news for you! God is not a respect of persons! If He did it for me, he’ll do it for you!   I will not go into all of the details about God’s miraculous provision, or how he made divine appointments for me.  You know what I am talking about people want to call it “being at the right place at the right time” or “meeting the right person.” I know when I have Holy encounters that were set up divinely.  It wasn’t fate, chance, or coincidence,  it was my Heavenly Father providing for me so that I can fulfill my dreams which give Him glory and points to his goodness…

Big Dreams require continuous steps forward to see them become reality! Being an author is one such dream that I thought was so huge and impossible for me to obtain, but here I sit with several books published, with many more finished and ready to go.   I simply took one bite at a time and now I have got a good part of an elephant dream swallowed as far as actually writing and getting published and making an impact.  Going on the adventure of where the books will take me is another elephant and so on and so on, but one bite at a time, one step at a time with the Lord’s hand leading me, I’m swallowing hard and making great strides! Swallow Your Dreams One Bite at a Time

Take Courage if Success is not to be Today!

1 Jul

 

Take Courage If Success is not to be Today, Try Again, it will Come Tomorrow!

Take Courage That if Success is not to be Today, Try Again, it Will Come Tomorrow!

Take Courage if Success is not to be Today,  Try Again, it Will Come Tomorrow!

Good morning!  Today I was thinking about courage.  It takes courage to get up out of bed in the mornings.  I know that sound a little drastic, but hey, we live in a world that is full of dramatic and drastic changes every day.   Courage is the get-up and go of every success.  Without Courage, no chances of success or failure would have ever been attempted.  I would rather try and fail than to stay seated and never attempt to succeed.  The picture of the squirrel depicts a failed attempt to get birdseed, but if you’ve ever had squirrels at your birdfeeders, you realize really quickly that they do not let failure deter them.  They continue to come to that birdfeeder over and over again until they figure it out.   They take courage that if success is not to be today, try again,  it will come tomorrow, and so it goes with us. Take courage my friends if you’ve made a courageous attempt and it did not work out quite the way that you thought.  Pick yourself up and learn from it, and take a deep breath and start again. Take Courage if Success is not to be Today,  Try Again, it Will Come Tomorrow!

You Are the Chocolate to my Peanut butter!

18 Jun

You Are the Chocolate to my Peanut Butter!

You are the Chocolate to my Peanut Butter! I make the cookies pictured in this post all of the time. (free recipe included below) They have chocolate and peanut butter which my husband and children love. Chocolate and peanut butter are great by themselves, but when you combine them they are terrific.

You may be asking,” Well what is the point of this post?”  It is my belief that no man is an island. We were all created by a Master Designer to connect and intersect in each other’s lives. Why? I believe that when we connect, we have something that the other person needs or they have something that we need. When we really connect is when we both can give and take in the relationship.  

I’ve always heard that fellowship could be described as two people in the same boat going in the same direction!  My husband and I have been in the same boat for 39 years, and are in fellowship. Yes, it may sound corny but my husband is the Chocolate to my Peanut Butter.  Jesus said that if two or three come together in agreement that he would be in their midst.  When you come into agreement with someone and decide to fellowship with them, it is a powerful combination!

Matthew 18:18-20 King James Version (KJV)

18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.   

If Jesus put emphasis on the fact that when we come into agreement that He personally comes to fellowship with us and also that we can see answered prayers, how important are the right connections?  Maybe you have never found anyone that you can truly connect with. If that is the case, may I suggest that you connect with the One who designed you first.  God himself wants to connect with you.    If it is just you and the Lord in your boat, would anything be impossible?  When you connect with the Lord and put Him first, He will bring the right people into your life to connect and to have wonderful fellowship.  Everybody needs to be Chocolate or Peanut Butter to someone else.  Connecting is why we were put on this planet!   If you already have someone that you connect with and can fellowship and come into agreement with then you can relate to this post. You too can say to someone, “You are the Chocolate to my Peanut Butter!”

Chocolate and Peanut Butter No Bake Cookies

¼ c. milk

1 stick Real Butter

1 tsp. Real Vanilla Extract

1½ cups. Hersheys Cocoa Powder

1 pkg. Powdered Sugar

2 cups Peanut Butter

2 cups. Steel Cut Quick Oats

Place milk, and cut up into pats of butter, vanilla, in a 13 x 9-inch glass casserole or baking dish. Spread pats evenly in rows in the dish.  Pour in cocoa and powdered Sugar, do not stir.  Place in Microwave oven for 5 minutes on high.  Take out of the Microwave and mix with a mixer immediately. May have to use a spoon to scrape edges to get it all mixed in.   Add Peanut Butter and mix until smooth, add oats and mix.  The mixture will be very thick at this point you may have to combine the oats with a spoon.   The cookies set up like a fudge consistency very quickly.  Drop tablespoon sized cookies onto parchment paper.  The cookies will continue to set up as they cool.  Enjoy!

The Mightiest Oak In The Forest!

28 May

The Mightiest Oak In the Forest!

Little nut who held its groun

The Mightiest Oak In the Forest was Once a Little Nut that Just Held Its Ground! I know that this quote is a little simple and even a little funny, however, I believe the quote also holds a deeper profound meaning.  Are you a little nut?

When the circumstances of life come to uproot your peace or attempt to destroy you or your family, do you know how to hold your ground? Many times until the circumstances come into our lives, we do not know how strong we are.  However, I view faith like a muscle.  The more you use your faith muscle the stronger faith you have, but much like the muscles in your body, you can’t just go to the gym one time and have rippling muscles, right? No, you must continue to work those muscles to cause them to be built up and strong.  So, must you give your faith muscles regular workouts.

 There are three things that I have found a must that has helped me to build my faith muscles and stand my ground like this little nut.  I numbered them 1-3, however, I feel that all three are equally important and necessary to build my faith and I use all three of them together.

  1. God’s Word:  God’s Word is the final authority.  Because His Word is unshakable.
    Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. 

    When I deposit the Word of God into my spirit, His Word is the nutrition that my faith muscle needs to grow. When I keep putting in the Word and using it by faith it causes me to be stedfast and unmovable.  Yes, I am like that little nut who will hold her ground, especially when it comes to my family and friends.

  2.  Prayer:   Prayer is key to trusting God and believing His Word.  Prayer is not just giving God our list and expecting Him to fulfill our every wish.  No, prayer is communication between The True and Living God and ourselves where we build a relationship.  Because I have His Word and I am in Relationship with  Him, I know He can be trusted.  All of His Promises are Yes and Amen.  So by knowing He is trustworthy, and His Word doesn’t change, and He doesn’t change,  It causes me to be strong in faith and again stedfast and unmovable.  In prayer, God can direct me and show me what to do, how to do it, or if I need to do anything at all.  Because of Him, I can stand my ground.
  3. Worship:  I have found worship to be the vehicle between Prayer and God’s Word but also between Heaven and Earth.  Worship helps me to get my eyes off of everything and to put them on God who is the one who perfects all that concerns me. He is the One who is all knowing.  I worship Him for who He is, not just for what He gives.  I worship Him as the Creator of the Universe, the One who has created me and given me a purpose and a plan.  He is the One who holds all my days and knows every minute detail about me.  I also worship Him in Adoration. He is the One whom my soul loves and I search for Him, in a deep and personal way to love Him more.  He is my personal Heavenly Father who loves me with an everlasting love.

    Psalm 139:14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. 15 My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. 16 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them. 17   How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them! 18  If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee.

    Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

My desire for writing my blogs is to always encourage.  If you are facing circumstances in your life which may seem too strong for you, I hope that you will begin seeing yourself and your faith as powerful and strong in God.  Our God is never surprised by what we are going through and will cause us to triumph if we stand our ground in faith trusting Him to help us.  Remember, The Mightiest Oak In the Forest was Once a Little Nut that Just Held Its Ground!

Consistency Wins the Race

24 May

Consistency Wins the Race!

Consistency Wins the Race

Consistency Wins the Race! Have you ever just had a week of being busy, but still it seems like nothing is getting accomplished?  Face it, life happens!  Sometimes our great plans of what we were going to do for the week, year, or even our lives, simply change. The key is to be willing to roll with the changes!  Be consistent in taking the small steps regularly. Yep, that has been my life recently, but yet when I look back I can see that I’ve accomplished much more than I thought I had.   I’ve actually made some huge strides toward some goals that I’ve been trying to meet this year by being consistent in doing the small things.

It may sound wonderful to go through life without any bumps in the road, but I believe it would also be very boring!  I have found that when the bumps of life happen, I can use them to my advantage. They can show me a true picture of what I am made of. Sometimes they detour me to another pathway that was good for me.    I admit there have been some huge bumps at times, so huge in fact; I really never thought that I would make it over them. However, God’s grace is always sufficient for me!

2 Corinthians 9:8  (KJV) And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:

This post is not to brag on how much I’ve gotten done, but rather I want to encourage you to see how much you are getting accomplished! Take time to realize that God is co-laboring with you by making all grace about toward you!  I want to encourage you… don’t give up on your goals or dreams, but press in even when it seems that nothing you do is accomplishing much.  Do you remember the story of the Tortoise and the Hare? It was the Tortoise that won the race, not the Hare.  Why?  It wasn’t the speed, but rather, a consistency that caused the race to be won.  If you haven’t quit, then you are still in the race, the prize is up ahead!  Keep contending! Life is a marathon, not a sprint! Can you see that you too have made great strides? I cheer you on my friend! Again, Consistency Wins the Race!
