Encouraging, exhorting, equipping Christian Families in Jesus Christ

Winter with the Moodys Preface

It became very clear as I wrote Autumn with the Moodys that Winter would soon be following! Ideas were being moved to the Winter folder even while Autumn was being written. My dad encouraged me to begin Winter with the Moodys as soon as Autumn was finished. Throughout the months of working on my outline, writing, and editing, he and Mom were my biggest supporters.

Jesus, my precious Lord and Savior, guided me as I wrote this book. Without Jesus, I would have nothing to write about. My earnest prayer is that if you don't know Jesus as your Savior–the Lamb Who shed His blood to redeem sinners–you would make that life-changing decision before putting this book down. If you have placed your faith in Jesus as a result of reading a Moody book, I’d be thrilled to hear from you to see how I might encourage you. You may contact me at the address listed in the front of this book or through www.Titus2.com or www.FamiliesforJesus.com.

I owe a great deal to my family. They are incredible help with suggestions and editing ideas, starting with the outline all the way to the final stages of the book. Christopher designed the cover as well as photographing the dog on it. Thank you!

With short notice, five families graciously agreed to read Winter with the Moodys in manuscript form and give comments. Their feedback was invaluable!

Thanks to Tilaundia who did a wonderful job on the illustrations. They add a special touch to the book–especially for the younger readers.

For those of you who are wondering, I plan, Lord willing, to write Spring with the Moodys! The idea file is already beginning to bulge.

Jesus' richest blessings!
