Mary A. Felkins

Mary A. Felkins is an inspirational romance author, administrator for Seriously Write writer’s blog, and contributor to Refresh, an on-line Bible study magazine. In 2015, she was awarded a bronze medal winner for her scene submission to My Book Therapy’s Frazier contest. Her debut Call to Love (Pelican Book Group) is set in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains.
She is a member of the American Christian Fiction Writers and My Book Therapy.

Raised in Houston, Texas (and forever a Lone Star girl), Mary and her husband Bruce moved to Hickory, North Carolina in 1997. They have four young adult children. She can be lured from her writer’s cave if presented with a large, unopened bag of Peanut M&Ms or to watch an episode of Fixer Upper. A surprise appearance by her teen idol, Donny Osmond, would also do the trick, although she’d likely pass out.

If, upon introduction, she likes your first or last name, expect to see it show up in one of her novels.

Tracy Cassidy, a self-reliant ED nurse, must choose between her dream job or staying in her hometown to help support her mother's faltering ministry. Even if it means falling in love with the kind of man she said she'd never marry.

Who wants to become Laurelton's next cop widow?

Tom DeLaney, a hyper-vigilant cop and new hire from Texas, is wearied by failed rescue attempts to save his marriage. After he moves to the foothills of North Carolina, he hadn't expected to fall for Tracy, but when Tom's adolescent son is diagnosed with a chronic illness, he faces the risk of loving another woman with keep-out issues.

Fears related to the death of Tracy's cop father and Tom's inability to forgive the past threaten to sabotage any chance at love.

To trust again means surrender. Will they risk their hearts and answer the call to love?

What the Morning Brings: 52 Story-Style Inspirational Devotions

What the Morning Brings: 52 Story-Style Inspirational Devotions

$12.99eBook: $3.99

Psalm 143:8 says, “Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you.” Inspired by King David’s desperate prayer for reassurance in the midst of an unsettling landscape, What the Morning Brings devotional harnesses the power of story and repetition to deliver spiritual insights regarding our relationship to God, our identity in him, how we relate to others, and how to respond when—not if—life heats up.

Each devotion is meant to be read every day for a week. Repeating the cycle seven times through equates to 365 days and will allow the scripture to etch more deeply into the heart, mind, soul by year’s end. For some, reading one devotional a day is sufficient.

One or more application questions follow each devotion and prompt the reader to pause for deep reflection, followed by the repetitive prompt: What truth did the morning bring?

Whether one’s morning comes at dawn or aligns with the setting sun, God longs to meet us wherever we are and to fill our lungs with his breath of encouragement in order that we may be a source of encouragement to others who’ve lost their way. Because no matter what the morning brings, God is always trustworthy, forever faithful, and his love unfailing.
