Guestblog by Jennifer Johnson and her new book, A Wedding Song in Lexington, KY


A bit about me:
I've been married to my husband, Albert, for 21 years. Still over-the-top in love with him. Sure, he gets on my nerves. Of course there are days I'm glad to see him go to work, but still, he's my man, and I'm always happy when he comes home. We have three daughters. Brooke, a 20-year-old senior at Western Kentucky University. She's studying to be an elementary teacher. Engaged to a man planning to go into the ministry. Our second daughter, Hayley, is 18 years old. She just graduated high school and will be attending UK in the fall. Allie is 14 years old. She starts high school this year and is an awesome soccer player. I teach 6th grade writing at our local middle school. By the end of this year, I'll have fifteen books in print. Crazy, huh!

A bit about A Wedding Song in Lexington, Kentucky:

First, it was a lot of fun to write! The book has three great main characters. Each is dealing with God and hurts on his/her own level.

Megan was hurt in the past- by a boyfriend and by her parents. As a result, she struggles with trusting people. And she has no intention of dating.

Colt is a terrific Christian- brought up in the church, raising his niece, keeping the farm in great order- and he’s proud of it. He’s always said the right things, made the right choices. As a result, he struggles with showing grace.

Justin is a walking temptation. He’s rich. He’s gorgeous. He’s what every girl wants, and he’s willing to give…until he meets Jesus and gives his life to God.

Another fun thing about the book…it’s a little silly that I love this part, but I can’t help it, I do…anyway, at the beginning of each chapter is a quote that alludes to what is going to happen. I had such a good time picking out these quotes. Some of them still make me giggle. I’ll share one that never fails to make me laugh. It’s from Steven Curtis Chapman, “There’s nothing like a good cheating song that makes me want to run home to be with my wife.”

I’m hoping that after this blog post you’ll want to run out and buy A Wedding Song in Lexington, Kentucky. I know you’ll enjoy it! Here are a couple pictures taken at my booksigning at Joseph-Beth in Lexington, KY! The one above is me signing a book for a friend and fellow writer. The one below is of me and my lovely daughters!
