It’s actually a bible verse that has stuck with me. It’s from Isaiah 40:31: but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.

Hi everyone!!!My name is Jessica and I started writing when I was a teenager. I have always had a love of reading and that influenced me to write my own stories!! I am married to a wonderfully supportive man and we have two beautiful kiddos together! I spent seven years in the Texas Army National Guard and after I got out, I started putting more time into my writing! My absolute favorite genre is fantasy romance or anything that is considered paranormal. The different worlds you can visit through those types of books absolutely fascinate me! I love red wine (its my end of the day treat to myself) and I am a sucker for sappy love stories, but who isn't right?
