9781622083343: I Prayed for Patience God Gave Me Children

Parenting is the hardest job in the world. God knows we are frail and forgives our mistakes. What’s more, He stands in the gap, making up for our deficiencies. “I believe God invented parenting to show us His wisdom, grace, and mercy as our Father,” says Rondeau. Parents are also God’s children, experiencing the same chaos, misadventure, and heartache as their charges, humorously demonstrated through a compilation of vignettes, quotes, illustrations, and witticisms. Award-winning author, Linda Wood Rondeau has maintained a religious column in The Malone Telegram since 2005, currently entitled, This Daily Grind, Her blog of the same title features vignettes that humorously demonstrate how God speaks to us through the mundane of life. Mother of three and grandmother of nine, the author is a veteran social worker, now residing in Florida with her most patient husband of thirty-five years. When not writing, her second passion is golf. You may find out more about Linda Wood Rondeau at her website, www.lindarondeau.com. She enjoys hearing from her readers through Goodreads, Facebook and Twitter.

About the Author:

A native of Central New York, Linda Rondeau graduated from North Syracuse High School and later Houghton College. She moved to Northern New York where she met and married Steve Rondeau, her best friend in life, and managed a career in human services before tackling professional writing. After thirty-four years she and her husband have relocated to Jacksonville, Florida to start a new adventure...leaving rural America to live in a city of one million. Of course, the more favorable temperatures allow her to follow another great passion--golf. While writing is her greatest passion, the author takes even greater pride in being a wife of one patient man, the mother of three, and the grandmother of nine. Rondeau's romantic suspense, The Other Side of Darkness, is the winner of the 2012 Selah Award for best first novel. Her romance, It Really IS a Wonderful Life is already a best seller. Joining her contemporary works is her first non-fiction, I Prayed for Patience/God Gave Me Children. Her next romantic suspense, Days of Vines and Roses will be available on or about March 21. Rondeau enjoys mentoring senior writers as evidenced by her multi-author, humorous blog, Geezer Guys and Gals, written by and for seniors. Her blog, This Daily Grind, is devotional in nature but also features the wit for which this author is known. The author is a breast cancer survivor and is available to speak to your groups about health and/or her books and ministry to senior writers. The author loves to hear from readers. You may contact her through her website http://www.lindarondeau.com, on Facebook via Author Linda Wood Rondeau, oodreads, twitter, pinterest or via any of her publishers.
