AND SO IT BEGINS . . .LOST AND FOUND
A new government and a new beginning--free of financial and healthcare worries. That was the promise to the country.
The changes are subtle at first, but the people soon learn that promises made for the good of the country are not what they expected. The government that once swore to care for its citizens has revealed its true colors.
Our military returns home from the war by order of a government they do not understand to a country they do not recognize. However, one soldier will not be coming home.
While Sandy Parker struggles to cope with her loss, care for her two sons, and run the small family ranch, Tom Connelly and Kyle Johnson make their way to the small town of Willow Creek--their objective, deliver a message to the wife of their fallen brother-in-arms. The arrival of the two soldiers could not have come at a better time and Sandy and her family realize that God's Hand is at work in bringing them all together. Friendships are made, and bonds are strengthened as they begin a journey to find others, like themselves who still believe in their country and have faith that God will bring them through the inevitable war that will be waged on the good citizens and faithful Christians of the United States... a war with only one viable outcome. Some will pay the ultimate price to defend their beloved country and deliver their loved ones from an enemy that will go to any length to get what it wants.

Tell us a little about yourself. I am blessed with a wonderful husband, two wonderful young men, a beautiful daughter-in-law and a precious grandson. I love dogs, horses, reading and writing.
What was your motivation behind this project? I believe that God's hand was always pushing me, motivating me to write this book. Both my sons were serving their country as United States Marines and both were deployed. The book was an escape for me, but soon I realized that as I wrote I understood more and more how God's love and comfort was all around me, especially when I was fearful for my sons and for my country.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? My biggest hope is that the readers will see that even when things get very tough, God is always there and He will always, always be a stronghold for us and a guiding light in the dark places. And that no matter what happens His love and forgiveness is constant and ever present.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? The thing that impacted me most was when I was in doubt about my motives for the book, God would always show me that the book was our project, not just mine. The Bible verses that I researched for each chapter always seemed to fit perfectly into the chapters showing me that no matter what happened in life, be it good or bad, God is always in control.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? Before, during the writing of the book and now, one of my main sources of inspiration is my minister, Kent Hawkins. He speaks the truth in his teachings, but isn't afraid to add a little humor. Some of my favorite authors include, Marcus Luttrell and Robert Ludlum. The Newsboys, Michael W. Smith and Third Day are some of my favorite musical artists.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: I would like my readers to know just how much I appreciate their interest in my book. A lot of heart went into it as well as a few tears. Some of the story was pulled from my own life experiences and reliving them was painful at times. I pray that the reader will take away with them the feeling that God will always be faithful, even in the darkest times.
