Be The Blessing by Paula Mowery

"We all wonder why bad things happen to good people. Can God use even the worst events in our lives to help us feed the world around us? Be the Blessing skillfully provides both food for thought and food for discussion." -- Lisa Wingate, national best-selling author of The Sea Glass Sisters and The Prayer Box.

Addy Townsend hadn’t strolled with Conrad or had a vision in five years. Now Conrad has returned to challenge her to be a blessing to those around her. The Holy Spirit begins to nudge her into service in new ways and she follows.

But when she is blindsided with personal problems, can Addy learn to be a willing vessel even in times of struggle and suffering?

The Inspiration for Be the Blessing

One evening I was thinking on an illustration I hear pastors use sometimes. A man went to Heaven and was touring with one of the angels. They arrived at a warehouse filled with beautifully wrapped gifts. The man asked what they were and the angel said: “These are all of the blessings God wants to grant but haven’t been asked for.” I continued to contemplate the story when I went to bed. Not to sound mystical or anything, but God suddenly “downloaded” the whole outline for THE BLESSING SEER into my mind. I had to get up and write it down. Throughout the writing God has taught me what it means to leave my comfort zones and do something significant for Him. I don’t ever want to miss out on blessings God has in store because I didn’t ask or didn’t obey His directives.

THE BLESSING SEER is available through the publisher – or most other ebook distributors.

When the edits for THE BLESSING SEER were complete and production began, my editor asked if there would be a sequel. I hadn’t really thought about it until she suggested the idea. Immediately God began to churn in my heart and mind about the next lesson my main character needed to learn about blessings. He revealed to me that even through suffering, a Christian can be a blessing to another person. It is in these moments of trial that a believer can learn and be a living testimony of the grace of God. Others can grasp this grace and be blessed through a child of God because of the ability to empathize. Thus, BE THE BLESSING was born. This new chapter in the main character’s life releases Sept. 13th and will be available from the publisher and other ebook distributors. Through this sequel, I pray the reader can see that he/she can trust God to be near during hard times and know He will use the lessons learned through trials to touch others.
