I have always loved reading and even tried my hand at writing mysteries when I was in elementary school, but not until recently, did I decide to take writing seriously. I started teaching various Bible studies at my parents' (Pastor Steve and Diane Zawilinsky) church about 10 years ago. While teaching, someone once told me I should put my studies together and write a book. I continued teaching Bible studies and the Adult Sunday School at Upper Room Ministries and I kept the idea of writing a book in the back of my mind. One day God led me to begin my first book. I started Heaven on Earth but I was not entirely committed to finishing it; the manuscript was partially written for almost a year. My family was very influential and supportive during the writing process. My uncle edited my first book and encouraged me to keep writing. My second book, Faith is Worth Fighting For, was much less daunting. I wrote it in six months and I was very excited about writing more. The Two of Me and Off-Season are my latest releases and I have many ideas for future writings. So far, each book is a study of God's Word on certain topics. I love to study the Word of God and I love to share what I learn. I am very interested in the Hebraic roots and studying the Word in the Hebrew language. When we look at the original translation we learn so much more and it answers so many questions that seem to confuse people. God's Word is our life and we need to understand it; we need to study the Word and share it with others. I have a website, www.heavenonearthforme.com, dedicated to enjoying life through the Word of God. There are Bible studies that are changed monthly, a page of God's promises for many areas of life, a page of recipes, ideas for every-day life, dating ideas, and much more! I look forward to writing many more books that dig deep into God's Word, but I may also try my hand at a mystery again - you never know!
Heaven on Earth
I love to study the Word of God and share those studies with others. I am also a wife and mother and I love being at home and making my family feel special.
I have a website, www.heavenonearthforme.com, dedicated to the loves of my life - the Word of God and my family.
Each month you can read new Bible studies, find great ideas for home and family, and so much more!
Right now we are promoting the Date Night Challenge. Take the challenge to date the one you love and enjoy the precious time that you have together. You can find date night ideas and more at:
- Heaven on Earth
Heaven on Earth is the first book that I wrote. Heaven on Earth is a look at the life that God desires for us.
- The Two of Me
The Two of Me is an in-depth study of the two natures that each Christian possesses.
Did you ever feel like two people in one body? You are not alone!
As Christians, we must understand that we have two natures - our Spiritual nature and our flesh. Each nature wants to dominate, but only one can. This book will take you on an in-depth study of your two natures and it will help you understand each one. It will also show you how to rule over your flesh and defeat its power in your life.
- Words of Life Devotionals
I have co-authored a series of devotionals with Kathleen Higham. Each devotional corresponds with each season of the year and is full of devotionals and poetry that relate to each season in life.
We also have a special devotional called A Season of Grief that is dedicated to the grieving process.
Off-Season is my latest book and it focuses on the trials that we encounter - especially the trials that last longer than we would like. Off-Season takes you through God's plan and purpose for the trying times that we encounter.
