In Blessed Abundantly, Janine Stephens and her husband become acquainted with interesting neighbors and feel greatly blessed to be led by the Lord to a church home that more than satisfies their hopes and dreams. The reader will join the Stephens family as they welcome French student Claire to be a part of their lives for a while; all will see the Fourth of July fireworks in Pittsburgh, and the family will return to days gone by as they attend a fall festival in the little town of West Hope. Janine and the ladies of West Hope are brought together by a Higher Power to find more blessings than any of them would have thought possible. The reader will see clearly the Lord's hand in the development of each new day as spirits are lifted and joy abounds as the ladies enter a new phase of life that changes everything.

About the author (2013)

Mary Jean Bonar is the director of music at church, playing the keyboard/organ and directing the Adult Chancel Choir and the Adult Handbell Ensemble. She is retired as a piano teacher and has relaxed her many years of community service. She is happily married and enjoys being the mother of four, grandmother to seven, and great-grandmother to two and also has many moments of pleasure with her little Westie dog, Wally. Her passion has been to write for publication, and with her first novel, Overflowing with Hope, she accomplished that goal. She has written many unpublished works, such as dramas and musicals, for church productions, and was editor of a church newsletter for eight years running. She is currently finishing the third book of the West Hope trilogy, compiling a booklet of Christian devotions, and wondering what her next novel will be. If someone were to ask her how old she is, she may answer, I have been young for a very long time, because she has found through her acquaintances with those who have lived longer than she has that being young for a long time is much better than being old. She says, I try to maintain an attitude of gratitude for life and for all of God's many blessings, and I find that I always feel better when I grasp opportunities to share my blessings with others.
