God is faithful and can turn cobwebs into a beautiful quilt. Marriage is full of challenges but additions and betrayal can turn any marriage into a disaster. This is the story of one woman's journey through the tears of betrayal to the blessings of a life of hope in Christ.
Jolissa Montoya believes God is calling her to work with the disadvantaged children in her inner-city neighborhood. There’s only one problem: The children wouldn’t be able to understand her. Jolissa suffers from a speech impediment and has a thick accent because Spanish is her first language. Ridiculed through much of her youth, she is quite shy and reticent to speak. She is convinced that what God has spoken to her heart is impossible. Impossible, that is, until one day when her confidante shows her a quilt—a quilt that depicts the life of a courageous woman. Can another woman’s courage move her to try the impossible and step out and follow God wherever He leads her? The Singing Quilt is set against the backdrop of the life of Fanny Crosby, who in addition to writing hundreds of songs was also a well-known public speaker and active in Christian rescue missions despite her disability. Readers will be inspired not to let fear or a disability prevent them from answering what they think is God’s impossible call. The Singing Quilt is the third book in the contemporary fiction “Quilt” series written by award-winning author Kathi Macias. The series focuses on various social issues, including racial and pro-life issues. Supplemental online book club materials will be available at NewHopeDigital.com.
The Great War was over and families were reunited. The McClaflin family began life afresh on a homestead in the northern plains of Wyoming, clearing off sagebrush and tilling virgin soil. Childhood memories of caring for orphan lambs have made an indelible imprint on the stories that have been penned to the pages of this beloved story of courage and endurance. The authors lifelong journey of walking with the Heavenly Shepherd of the 23rd Psalm is the spark that kindles the flame of compassion and caring the reader will experience from the stories of family and the love of life. The death of a parent is a common experience, until that season of life is within your family. Layer upon layer, circumstances of life hopefully will mold us into persons with a lot of horse sense, better known in todays society as common sense, and equip us with a great deal of integrity to pass on to future generations. Or we can choose to live a life of despair, and each of us makes that choice. Colliding with a huge snowplow in a brutal storm in the middle of Shirley Basin in the desolate parts of Wyoming would forever change the life of this author. The peace and calm of knowing the protection of the Heavenly Shepherd, depicted in the 23rd Psalm, while waiting for an ambulance coming from a long distance has given the promise of hope and a future. Sunrises and sunsets would forever take on a brighter hue, thus allowing Patricia the desire and ability to pen much-loved stories of family, friends, and the Heavenly Shepherd found in this novel.

She examines how the Psalms formed the worship of ancient synagogues and the earliest churches and how they can do the same for our churches today.
