Book: I Believe In Jesus Too
Author: Mark S. Nielsen

About the Book
All around the world, Latter-day Saint children go to church, sing songs, pray, read scriptures, participate in family home evening, and get baptized. We may meet in different types of buildings or speak different languages, but we have a lot in common. Why? Because no matter where we live, we all love and believe in Jesus, and He loves each one of us just the same. Are you like Pablo, Dimitri, Bayani, Junpei, and Shamara? Do you believe in Jesus too?

That's Amore!

I love love! I love being in love, giving love, and receiving love. So I thought I would share a few Valentine's Day thoughts.

For you see, each day I love you more
Today more than yesterday and less than tomorrow.
~Rosemonde Gerard

Love is a symbol of eternity. It wipes out all sense of time, destroying all memory of a beginning and all fear of an end. ~Author Unknown

Love - a wildly misunderstood although highly desirable malfunction of the heart which weakens the brain, causes eyes to sparkle, cheeks to glow, blood pressure to rise and the lips to pucker.
~Author Unknown

Anyone can catch your eye, but it takes someone special to catch your heart.
~Author Unknown

And my personal favorite:
I don't understand why Cupid was chosen to represent Valentine's Day. When I think about romance, the last thing on my mind is a short, chubby toddler coming at me with a weapon. ~Author Unknown

In honor of the upcoming day of love, I'm giving away copies of my Passionate Hearts Novelette Collection. Just leave your email address in the comment section or send me an email at jewela40@gmail.com and I'll send these short stories out to you!

And be sure to swing by my website and listen to the latest Jewel's World of Romance podcast!
