My guest today is Author Carrie Turansky (shown here with her daughter). She is offering a book giveaway and tells us about a young woman that she admires. Here’s Carrie:
One strong, young woman that I deeply admire is Katie Davis, who lives in Uganda and has opened her heart and home to adopt fourteen daughters. With her deep love for God and her commitment to care for the least of these, some people think of her as a modern day Mother Theresa. I was deeply touched when read her book, Kisses from Katie. I have given copies to several friends who were also impressed by Katie’s commitment to love and serve the people of Uganda.
Katie didn’t grow up with the idea of traveling to Africa and adopting so many children. She is a beautiful, talented girl from Tennessee who was raised in a loving family. She was senior class president and homecoming queen at her high school. As she thought about going off to college another dream formed in her heart, and she visited Uganda for the first time in December of 2006 when she was 18 years old. The culture and people immediately captivated her, and she made the decision to leave her life in the US behind and move to Uganda.
I’ve always admired single mothers like Katie Davis. Parenting is a tough job for anyone, but doing it alone is even more challenging.

In my newest book Snowflake Sweethearts, the heroine Annie Romano is a single mother with a deep love for her five-year-old daughter Emma. She trains to become a personal chef so she can support her daughter and have a flexible schedule to be there when her daughter needs her. Providing a safe and happy childhood for Emma is a high priority for Annie, and that’s one reason I think readers will be captivated by her story and cheer for her as they read Snowflake Sweethearts. This heartwarming, holiday story would make a great gift for anyone who enjoys inspirational romance.
