  3. Oh, yum! Fried okra. Now I'm going to have to go to the store and get some.

    And Linda, I totally cracked up when you said monetarily there were many books you wish you'd written! Had me laughing. =)

    It was great getting to know you better, and your family is in my prayers.

  4. Hi Linda - so great to learn more about you. Those two hymns you mentioned happen to have special meaning for me as well. Amazing Grace was played at my wedding and Beulah Land is my husband's favorite hymn.

  5. Hi, Linda! I remember the first time I heard your name. It was called at the 2008 Romance Writers of America® Awards Banquet when you won the RITA in the Inspirational category. I clapped so enthusiastically my palms stung.

    I, too, like water, nice and cold. I often add a squirt of lime juice. So refreshing.
