It's Here!

 Journey to Love is now ready for you! Find it on Amazon!

About the Book
Now orphaned, Marie is swept miles away from the only life she knew to be sheltered by unknown guardians. Caught in the challenges of a new life, she cannot prevent changes from happening, but she can keep the Bowles and their friends at arm's length. Or can she? 
While things appear to transition smoothly on the outside, Marie struggles against the turmoil she faces on the inside. She sees something in the Bowles and her new friends that she had never experienced before...but should she trust what the preacher is teaching when it goes against everything she had accepted as truth? Is God really a God of love? If He is, then is Marie willing to accept it? 
Follow Marie as she begins the journey to love.

About the Series
Imagine yourself as an orphan, struggling for survival on the filthy New York streets, where disease and crime run rampant. Journey from these wretched streets to a temporary lodging in an overcrowded orphanage and then to the train station. After riding the train for hours, picture yourself lining up with other children, waiting as adults look you over. Would you be chosen—or would you have to hold onto the hope that maybe, at the next station, someone would want to bring you home? Minister Charles Loring Brace had a vision for New York orphans that brought them through this journey from streets to homes. He began his orphan work in 1853, then in 1854, because of lack of orphanage space, Brace sent the first orphans, by train, to Dowagiac, Michigan, where the children could be sheltered by local families. The "orphan train" continued until 1929, bringing at least 150,000 children to new homes where they were fostered and, occasionally, adopted. Brace desired to place children in good, Protestant homes. Many orphans experienced Brace's desire, but some orphans had different stories: siblings were separated, and some couples took orphans to use for cheap labor. Though many orphans ended up as successful men and women, not all of them turned out to be trustworthy citizens. Orphan Journeys is a fictional novella series based on the American Orphan Train saga. Each story follows orphans not only as they adjust to a new life, but also as they embark upon a spiritual journey.

  1. SO exciting!!

    My favorite verse about love is Romans 5:8, "“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”

  2. John 15:13 is my favorite verse about love. :)

  3. I love how you're writing a series on such an important historical topic! We need writer's like you to share our historical roots, so our past is not lost.

    And I always appreciate true Christianity shining through a writer's work. Thank you, Amanda!:)

  4. Congratulations, Amanda. Do send me a party link and details about review writing to

    Fab series idea! Found your link through our fb writer's group.


  5. I like alot of verses about love, but I like John 3:16 because it tells how much God loves us-so much that He sent his son to die on the cross. :)

  6. Favorite verse about love: 'There is no fear in love; but perfect live casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love." I John 4:18

    Congratulations on this publication! I'm looking forward to the next one. =)

  7. Congratulations on all your hard work and getting your book published Amanda! Thank you for giving away three of your books. That's really sweet. :)

    Keep up the good work!
    God bless you.
    Much love in Christ,

  8. 1 John 4:18 (KJV)
    There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

  9. God Is Love is my favorite saying.


  10. Love is “while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8
    Looking forward to your next book!!!

  11. I love the Lord and am thankful to find Christian authors who write inspiring stories. I look forward to reading your stories.

  12. Definitely John 3:16 is my favorite. That is the first Scripture my Daddy ever taught me. I am 55 years old now and Daddy is in Heaven. I treasure that precious memory of sitting in the floor and reading the Bible together.

  13. John 3:16 is a great verse about love.:)

  14. I don't know if my first comment worked. Our internet browser has been misbehaving. I said John 3:16 if it didn't go through.

  15. Thank you all for commenting and sharing verses! :) It was a blessing to read them all! And thank you all for your congratulations! I am indeed excited about this step in my writing journey!

  16. ICorinthians 13:13 And so faith, hope, and love abide( faith-conviction and belief respecting man's relation to God and divine things; hope- joyful and confident expectation of eternal salvation; love- true affection for God and man, growing out of God's love for and in us). These three; but the greatest of these is love.
    Thank you for the chance to win. You are a new author to me.

  17. John 3:16 - God loves us so much he gave his only son for us - that is Love!

  18. Thanking God today & everyday for all the Blessings he has given, I don't deserve any-but richly Blessed by a loving family, a job, roof over my head and a full pantry - God is Good!

  19. John 3:16 - God loves us so much he gave his only son for us

  20. This sounds like such an exciting series I am really looking forward to reading it. I have been looking for a meaningful series like this to read for a long time. Thank you for the exciting giveaway chance!

  21. I would love to read these books. ☺

  22. This sounds like a fantastic series! Glad I found your blog. I don't have a favorite verse. My favorite book of the Bible is Hebrews. One verse is too difficult to pick out!


Thank you for stopping by! I pray that you have found something that encourages you today. Thank you for taking the time to give me a little comment - they always brighten my day. :) I usually stop by and reply to as many comments as I can, but sometimes it takes me a week or so. But if you asked a question, be sure to check back!

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer. (Psalm 19:14)
