Looking for an uplifting book? My heart is always touched by reading a book by Myra Johnson. She now has ten romances published by Harlequin’s Love Inspired imprint, along with a number of other novels. Please settle in with a cup of tea (or coffee) while we chat about her newest book, A Steadfast Companion, a sweet romance filled with hope and forgiveness.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Offering a helping hand…
Could give him everything he needs.
Fighting his way back from a troubled past, handyman Angus “Witt” Wittenbauer needs refuge. When dog sanctuary owner Maddie McNeill needs someone to fix her kennel’s roof, it seems like the answer to his prayers, especially when he’s reunited with his long-lost dog, Ranger. His growing friendship with Maddie hints at the promise of something more, but will Witt ever feel deserving of love again?
A heartwarming story filled with hope! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
A Steadfast Companion offers an uplifting story of perseverance through challenging times….and finding love and contentment. The characters really touched my heart. Handyman Whit is a kind and honest man, even after his life was destroyed while trying to do the right thing. Struggling with financial problems, Maddie McNeill is hardworking as she attempts to keep her grandmother’s senior dog rescue sanctuary open. And Ranger is the perfect “man’s best friend” watching out for and supporting his owner. Secondary characters in the community of Elk Valley, Montana, offer small town warmth and friendship.
Besides the engaging story of overcoming difficulties, I enjoyed a romance with older characters. What a great combination this couple makes….each giving selflessly and encouraging the other. The epilogue provides a charming ending to this sweet story. Author Myra Johnson gives us a compelling message of faith and hope in A Steadfast Companion.
Favorite quote: “There’s always hope, my friend. We worship a God of hope. Hope and second chances and forgiveness beyond measure.”
*I was given a copy of this book with no requirement to write a review. I’m delighted to offer my honest opinion.

MY ONE WORD FOR 2023
I’m a bit behind in posting my word for the year. Where did January go? And February, for that matter? In later posts, I’ll explain this selection and the impact I believe this word will have on my faith in 2023.
My scripture for the year is:
But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, the word keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.Luke 8:15 KJV
Thank you for joining me for this teatime review. Do you have a word of the year you’d like to share? May you find joy and courage in your HEART.
With prayers and blessings,
*Comments are appreciated and will appear after moderation. I apologize for delays in posting.

I haven’t chosen a “one word” for a few years now. Guess I’m still living into one or two from years past. I love yours, though! “Heart” can encompass so many facets of life.
