Debbie Macomber


To Hope-Inspired Stories, for anyone who'd like to discover more about books and stories that uplift and encourage.

Several years ago, while teaching high school art, I found out I was as thrilled as my students when they won awards or were acknowledged for their accomplishments, and that promoting other people's good works was very gratifying. 

So it's my hope you are blessed with a message of grace through the words of authors featured here. Please join me each week as writers of fiction, nonfiction, and devotionals; of romance, mystery, historical and contemporary stories share their work. 

To help me celebrate the upcoming holidays this month, it is my privilege to have as my guest Debbie Macomber, with her latest novel, "Alaskan Holiday." Debbie has written numerous stories that have become all-time favorites! Please join me in welcoming her this week, by leaving a comment to be in a drawing for her latest book.

Reminder: The authors presented here value your insights, so don't forget to leave a comment. You will be included in a drawing for a book by the author featured during that week. 

...And if you become a Follower of Hope-Inspired Stories, your name will be
added to a multiple-prize drawing at the end of this month. December's big giveaway: a pretty tote filled with gifts that include this week's DVD choice--(another story written by Debbie!): "Dashing through the Snow," a journal, a 25.00 gift card, a sweet "Let Heaven and Nature Sing" mug, and more, all reflecting this month's holiday mood.

“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable — if anything is excellent or praiseworthy — think about such things and the God of peace will be with you” (Philippians 4:8).
