Welcome to the Blog Blitz for The Mosaic Collection, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours! Today I am delighted to welcome Angela D. Meyer to the blog to chat about her cornerstone message for her The Mosaic Collection novel, which releases in March 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
Angela D. Meyer lives in Nebraska with her husband of over 27 years. They have two children, both of whom they homeschooled and graduated. She is the author of the Applewood Hill series and is a contributor to The Benefit Package, a devotional compilation.
Angela graduated from college with a degree in Teaching English as a Foreign Language, but instead of working overseas, she spent several years in New England as a nanny. She co-teaches a women’s Bible study at her church and serves on the advisory board of her local Christian writers’ group, Wordsowers.
She enjoys the ocean, beautiful sunrises and sunsets and hopes to someday ride in a hot air balloon. Her aim in life is to love God and love others.
My Cornerstone Message From The Collection
There is brokenness all around us and people are turning to the wrong things for answers. Only God can make whole. I want my stories to be powerful in their showing of God’s truth, love and grace, lighting the path that leads directly to God.
I have experienced firsthand the redemptive, restorative power of God’s grace in my marriage and I want to share with others that.God is able to heal, restore and redeem any brokenness.
A Deeper Dive into My Cornerstone Message
A few years ago I discovered my husband had a sexual addiction. After confronting him, he repented and got help. Between counseling, an accountability group and the grace of God he is now an overcomer of sexual addiction.
During that season of his overcoming and finding healing I grieved, I was angry, I was lost. Yet I learned to trust God when I couldn’t trust my husband. Jesus brought me through my own brokenness to healing for my own hurting heart. He remained faithful to take care of our kids in the middle of the turmoil. We aren’t perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but God continues to heal our brokenness and give us grace in the midst of our imperfections.
One of the coolest ways I saw God move during this season, occurred through my first book published. I was already in the editing stages with my publisher when I found out about my husband’s secrets. The story in Where Hope Starts is about a woman who discovered her husband betrayed her through a sexual addiction. I faced the theme of forgiveness and God’s power to redeem every day as I worked on editing. This was God’s grace. He kept me from isolating. Kept my path to healing continually in front of me. The message I poured into my book was the message God poured into my heart. He can redeem and restore. There is always hope in Him.
