God’s grace is what saves us


Ephesians 2:8 says, “God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God.” (NLT)

So, to extrapolate on that verse, we are saved by God’s grace—not by our own deeds. In the same way that our good works don’t save us, our bad ones—or sins—cannot keep us from salvation.

In my latest book, Her Brother’s Keeper, Charlotte’s brother took his own life. Charlotte travels to Pennsylvania to investigate his life and troubles there. Why did his friends not get him the help he needed for his depression? Charlotte has many conversations with characters that knew her brother, trying to decide for herself if his sin of taking a life keeps Ethan from Heaven.

Her Brother’s Keeper will be released on July 7, 2015.
