Can I just take a moment to tell you how comfy this Express Sweater is? I LOVE it! I literally felt so comfy yesterday – and it was a perfect day to be cozy. I… More
Have you ever battled with your faith? Have you ever had one of those seasons where things just cannot seem to fall into place? You can’t seem to make anybody happy? You can’t seem to get the bills paid on time? You can’t seem to keep from making your significant other upset? You can’t do anything right at work? You can’t seem to stay on track with your diet? The list can go on and on of things that can go wrong all in the same season.
Life has taught me that things in life are never consistent. Relationships, finances, work load, and even at times our hope is not consistent. I have learned there is one thing that is always consistent, God’s love. His love is everlasting. He is faithful to us even when we are not so faithful to Him. He stands by our side even when we are pushing Him away. He hears our hopes and thoughts even when we are not praying.
I have had moments in life where I literally felt drained of all hope. I wasn’t even sure if I could put my hands together to pray, but then God reaches in and puts my hands together FOR me. He gets me out of the pits of hell when I’m not sure how I even got there. I have had moments where life overcomes me and overcomes my ability to believe….. but then there He is to remind me, BELIEVE!
Faith is sometimes a battle. Sometimes it is so hard to have faith that there is a better tomorrow. Can you imagine what life would be like if we had the faith in God that He has in us? God’s faith in us is so remarkable. He believes in us more than anybody ever will. He knows we can change lives. He knows we can get that promotion at work. He knows we can get that degree, write that book, or get that job. He knows we can be who He called us to be. He doesn’t give up on us. He knows what He created us for and He knows WE-ARE-CAPABLE!
Sometimes it might seem easier to just give up and stop having faith, but doing that will be more painful and a lot harder in the long run. God’s love is everlasting and His faith in us is phenomenal. Just remember the next time your faith seems to have disappeared, that God’s faith in us isn’t going anywhere.
Maybe everybody in the world has given up on you and you have given up on yourself but He hasn’t……and He never will.
His love and faith endures forever.
The small Montana town of Timberton has a way of bringing magic to the holidays, especially for guests of the local hotel. Resident artist and chef Mist has a way of touching people’s lives with exquisite cuisine, imaginative art, and her own ethereal nature.
When a nearby theater burns down just before Christmas, cast members of The Nutcracker arrive at the Timberton Hotel with only a sliver of holiday joy. Camaraderie, compassion, and shared inspiration combine to help at least one hidden dream come true. As with every Christmas season in Timberton, this year’s guests will face the New Year with a renewed sense of hope.
*Cookie and candy recipes included!
The only complaint I have about this book is not knowing how to check into Timberton Hotel for the holidays or how to become besties with resident chef, Mist?! I LOVE these books! Such a comfy read for the holidays that provide holiday cheer and hope.
I have been sick in bed with the flu for the past week and this was the perfect read for me! It was nice and cozy and reminded me of the wonderful holiday season that we are in! I can’t wait to feel 100% better and try out the recipes!
If you are looking for a good Christmas read, then grab this book! It can be read as a stand alone, but I would encourage you to get the whole series! They are a perfect holiday treat!

Mistletoe at Moonglow, The Moonglow Series, Book 1
The Timberton Hotel has always provided a perfect Christmas retreat for regular guests, as well as newcomers. But the small town of Timberton, Montana, hasn’t been the same since resident chef and artist, Mist, arrived, bringing a unique new age flavor to the old western town.
When guests check in for the holidays, they bring along worries, fears and broken hearts, unaware that Mist has a way of working magic in people’s lives. Old-fashioned time spent together, exquisite food, conversation and a snowball or two offer guests a chance to trade sadness for hope. One thing is certain: no matter how cold winter’s grip is on each guest, no one leaves Timberton without a warmer heart.
Silver Bells at Moonglow, The Moonglow Series, Book 2
Christmas at the Timberton Hotel arrives each year with a unique set of guests, some returning, some new. When this holiday brings a celebrity seeking reprieve, sisters who are distant yet closer to each other than they think, a widow approaching a new horizon, and an eclectic smattering of local townsfolk and visiting relatives, the season is certain to be eventful. Add in a hint of romance and there’s more than snow in the air around the small Montana town.
Elegant decor and exquisite cuisine from resident artist and chef, Mist, form a backdrop to much needed camaraderie, bringing strangers and friends together. When the last note of Christmas carols has faded away, the soft whisper of silver bells from the front door’s wreath will usher guests and townsfolk alike back into the world with hope for the coming year.
Gingerbread at Moonglow, The Moonglow Series, Book 3
The small town of Timberton, Montana, boasts an ambiance of near-magical proportions during the Christmas season, due in no small part to resident artist and chef Mist’s mysterious way of working small miracles in people’s everyday lives. Each year, return guests and new arrivals mingle with local townsfolk to enjoy companionship, exquisite decor, and exceptional cuisine at The Timberton Hotel.
As the aromas of ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and molasses mix with heartfelt camaraderie and sweet romance, guests share reflections on family, friendship, and life. Although decorating the outside of a gingerbread house may prove easier than deciding what goes inside, no one leaves Timberton without renewed hope for the future.
