South in the summer 2014. South Carolina is a beautiful area. I've enjoyed being a recipient of the Southern Hospitality I used to only read about! :)

 It is my desire that God will lead and direct the "reach" of this material even further!

Precept Publishing is my publishing business, an independently- owned company, initiated in September 2011. After two years

of attempting to get my manuscript published with a Christian publisher, I was encouraged by a (small) Christian publisher

  in Arizona to self-publish. She provided me with many of the resources I needed to get started. "Is Your Fruit Sweet or

Sour? A Teen Girl's Guide to Christian Living" is

Precept Publishing's first publication.


"Is Your Fruit Sweet or Sour?" is a result of my familiarity with young women. I came to know the Lord in 1987, long after my teen years!

I began working with high school girls in 2002, when asked to teach a Sunday school class. I saw the need for solid, fundamental material

which would challenge and convict them in their walk. I had been

freelance writing for both secular and Christian publications,

so the next logical step seemed to pen a book!


Can the character flaws of the flesh actually resemble a disorderly, neglected garden?  Absolutely! God's Word is full of wisdom, assurance and promise! Ultimately, tending to one's spiritual garden will reflect a finer product, one which is pleasurable and productive. "Is Your Fruit Sweet or Sour?" is intended to assist with spiritual growth and can be used to stimulate discussion of ordinary topics which are age-old temptations and trials for any Christian.
