Welcome to the Blog Blitz for The Mosaic Collection, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours! Today I am delighted to welcome Lorna Seilstad to the blog to chat about her cornerstone message for her The Mosaic Collection novel, which releases in January 2020.
ABOUT THE COLLECTION
For His glory…
The Mosaic Collection is an international community of women authors who use faith-based fiction to touch hearts with the good news that Christ’s finished work on the cross has made us one family, and to nurture affection for the people God has placed within our circles of influence, so that the grace and glory of God may become visible and personal to everyone we meet.
…and our good
We are sisters, a beautiful mosaic united by the love of God through the blood of Christ. We have experienced the redemptive, restorative power of God’s grace in our marriages and families, and we believe our God is able to heal, restore and redeem our brokenness. His love fills us with the courage to persevere, and to offer others a Christ-like compassion that is full of His wisdom and grace.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Fan favorite Lorna Seilstad writes multi-layered stories which contain a generous dash of humor. She is the author of the Lake Manawa Summers series and Gregory Sisters series (Revell) and has stories included several novella collections. She was a Carol Award finalist in historical romance, but today writes both historical and contemporary stories. When she’s not eating chocolate, she enjoys doing flowers for weddings, teaching Bible classes, researching history, baking cookies, and working with her 4-H club. She and her husband live in Iowa with their three adult children living nearby.
My Cornerstone Message From The Collection
God loves you more in this moment than anyone could in a lifetime.
A Deeper Dive into My Cornerstone Message
Over and over, I see people searching for love. Sometimes this search leads them into relationships that are painful, but other times they still end up feeling like there’s something missing. But the love of God is perfect and unfailing. We have a hard time understanding God’s unconditional love. We cannot grasp the breadth or depth of it. We cannot earn His love and we don’t have to. God loves us because He loves us and He is love.
Three years ago, my husband had a massive heart attack at the age of 57. His heart stopped for over 45 minutes, and he ended up in ICU. During the ten days of waiting, I faced paralyzing fear. What would I do without the man I loved? Then, I remember thinking that God loved me more than even my husband, and He loved me more in this horrible moment than anyone ever could. My husband did recover, and he’s doing well today, but I know tomorrow holds no guarantees. However, I know God is faithful.
