    Loved your poem. I can’t wait to start reading the books you mentioned. They all sound good.

  • Connie Isbell

    It was a wonderful poem and video Deena! Great job on the video too! I love the setting outside next to your mums. 💗 I always enjoy hearing your book recommendations and about your passion for reading and writing. Under the Turquoise sky has caught my eye and I’ll have to add to my Christmas list. Thank you for sharing!

    • Deena Adams

      Hi, Connie! Thanks for your kind words. I’m glad you enjoyed the poem, and I hope you’ll enjoy the books you choose to read. One reason I loved Under a Turquoise Sky so much was the setting. We had just visited our pastor/missionary friends in New Mexico before I read it and Lisa’s book brought back so many vivid memories of the Navajo reservation and sites we saw while there. And it was a great story for suspense lovers. Thanks for watching and joining the conversation!

  • Phyllis

    Love the poem!

    Yes, I am thankful for CF authors so much! I love Erin Bartels, Francine Rivers and Joanne Bishcoff! Thanks for the other ones to check out! There is sooo much to choose from!

    I saw your post on Avid Readers of Christian Fiction, too! Have a great weekend!

    • Deena Adams

      Hi, Phyllis! Yes, we’re so blessed with many fabulous stories by amazing Christian Fiction authors. I have you down for two entries in the drawing. Good luck!

  • Barbara Byers

    What a great poem promoting others. As a reader, not a writer, I love the suggestion of Christian authors.
    Always looking for others to appear on and share their writing story or testimony.

    I loved your poem and your video!
    You are very cool, Deena Adams!
    Christian fiction audios have been crucial for me with getting through nights that I have been spending with my Grammy in hospice the past couple of weeks. These stories are enjoyable and uplifting. They help me pass the time when my Gram is sleeping, so I can rest my eyes, doze, and then rewind as needed.
    I was listening to Pepper Basham’s The Mistletoe Countess two nights ago. I was super-tired and must have been about to doze off right when the main character was following a ghostly figure in an abandoned wing of Havensbrook Hall. I was totally immersed in this creepy situation when a hospice nurse popped into the room, startling me so much that I popped up like a jack-in-the-box with a squeal.
    It gave us a good laugh and I was able to give CF a plug.

      Thanks, Amy! My family wouldn’t agree with you about me being cool. LOL

      I’ve never been able to stay focused on audio books before but I recently listened to a couple on road trips and really enjoyed them so I listened to my first one outside of driving on a trip this month and I think I’m going to start listening to more.

      The Mistletoe Countess is the giveaway for my December newsletter going out next week. 🙂 I haven’t read it yet but I plan to. I’ve heard great things about it. I love that you got to talk CF with the nurse. So fun!

  • Debbie Williams

    I’ve never been in a poem, but my, what a lovely gesture and so, so clever. Thank you, dear friend. Honored to be included.
    Hope you’ve had a blessed day!

  • Teresa+Moyer

    Loved your poem! Oh boy do I have a long list of new to me authors to check out. 2021 i vntured into genres I never even considered trying and I am glad I spread out my interests.

    • Deena Adams

      Thanks so much, Teresa! I’m glad you enjoyed the poem. Thanks for watching and commenting. I’ve also read new genres and really enjoyed them. Happy Thanksgiving!

  • Mary A. Felkins

    You are AMAZING! I love how you honored so many authors you’ve read and shared their stories in this Thanksgiving poem. Had no idea how well you could string together words that rhyme – in addition to fantastic story telling and blogging and author Q&A-ing.

  • Janet DeCastillia

    Your Thanksgiving poem was cute!! Gave me some good future reading suggestions. Happy Thanksgiving to you!

  • Alyssa Schwarz

    I love this poem, and I’m so intrigued by some of the books you mentioned. I’ve read The Lady and the Lionheart, and I have to agree it is probably one of my favorite books to date! I’ll have to check out the others as well. 🙂

    • Deena Adams

      Hi, Alyssa! Thanks so much for watching and commenting. I do adore The Lady and the Lionheart. Such a moving story. Maybe you’ll find another favorite among those mentioned! Happy Thanksgiving!
