Book Description

Shiloh Griffin has no identity outside of her roles as pastor’s wife and mom. Some days that is enough. But not always. Particularly when she is partnered with the always confident, always gracious Jade Smith on a church ministry project. Rather than shying away from God in her nervousness, Shiloh clings to Him, seeking every day to redeem herself. When an opportunity arises for her to teach music at a local high school, she thinks maybe it’s just the thing to give her more significance.


Then Shiloh begins mentoring Monica, a fifteen-year-old student. When Monica learns she is pregnant, Shiloh must confront her own darkest secret in the desperate decision facing the teen. If she turns away, this teen’s life—and her soul—could be in jeopardy. If she decides to stand up and help, she knows she’s the one who risks losing everything.


Stacy Hawkins Adams’s second book in the Winds of Change series finds Shiloh at a life-changing crossroads: keep her halo intact, or lose her honor to save the girl’s.


"Elegantly emotional and intriguing, the story reaches deep to gently touch the soul." —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

5.0 out of 5 stars Forgiving Your Sins = God's Grace August 15, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Lead Me Home was a beautiful story about forgiving yourself. We all carry around sins of the past, and while we may have been forgiven by God, forgiving ourselves seems to be much harder sometimes. Shiloh is the picture perfect preacher's wife and it seems like she has the world by the tail. What people do not see is the guilt she carries from her past. Shiloh takes on a new job of teaching music in a high school for a short time. She falls in love with the students and teaching. One of her students, discovers that she is in trouble. She turns to Shiloh for some help and Shiloh realizes that she must reveal her past to help this girl make the right decisions for herself.

I thought this book was a fantastic look at the psychological warfare that goes on in our minds. While we ask for forgiveness from our Father, we still carry that guilt and have to find ways to forgive ourselves. The other part of this story was about judging people based on their outside looks and actions. Too often we do not have the whole story. This again was a good lesson. People do things for the right reasons, but to others they may not appear to be sincere. God knows our hearts, and while we may not be perfect with the execution of His plan, He does honor our efforts. Learning to listen to God and helping someone else become more like Christ is what we are suppose to do. Shiloh learned this lesson with Jade. I loved how Adams brings about awareness of the price of hearing aids and how little is covered by insurance.
This was a great read that reveals things to you so you can be a better person. My thanks to Netgalley for providing me with a free ebook to read and review.

3.0 out of 5 stars Eh - June 1, 2014
Format:Paperback
Hott Synopsis:
Shiloh Griffin has always felt the call for more but has relegated her life to that of wife and mother to honor a promise she made to God.
Now, almost twenty years later she lives each day with regret. She wouldn’t give up her husband and children for anything but sometimes she wishes there was more.

When an unexpected job offer comes her way Shiloh jumps at it sure that it’s God’s gift to her for honoring her promise but in accepting this gift Shiloh will have choices to make. Choices that will affect her family and her husband’s tenuous head pastor position. Choices that will bring to light the secrets she’s kept for years. Choices that will alter the perfect facade she’s constructed.
Is Shiloh strong enough to accept God’s gift?

Hott Review:
I didn’t finish ‘Lead Me Home’. It was a really good book, but it was so emotional and deep that I kept feeling myself get down because of the depth. If you can handle this level of emotion then it’s perfect for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Truths May 31, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Shiloh Griffin is a wife, mother and first lady. She married her husband young, so any life she may have dreamed for herself became non-existent as her main purpose became being a helpmate to her husband and pastor and mother to their four sons.

While leading the women's bible study, Shiloh feels threatened by Jade Smith, the assistant pastor's wife. Shiloh knows the word of God, but when dealing with Jade, it's sometimes difficult to remember to be Christlike. Will these two ladies learn to co-exist?

A teaching opportunity lands in Shiloh's lap. She would love to be able to do something separate from her husband and children. Despite loving her husband, children and ministry, she finally feels as though her life has meaning. Immediately Shiloh finds herself bonding with the students.

Monica, a 16-year-old, has a real talent as a flutist. She finds it easy to confide in Shiloh. In doing so, Shiloh realizes that this was by God's design. Before, Shiloh can assist Monica, she has to open up her long ago buried secrets to her family. Will her past be a wrecking ball in their lives?

This is the second book in the Winds of Change series. So far we've gotten very acquainted with two of three of the Wilson sister's. As always, Hawkins books are comforting, with real life characters and circumstances. I was so drawn into the story, and how she is able to tackle multiple story lines.

Definitely worthy of a recommendation, Just be certain you read COMING HOME first.

Excellent work. I love the interconnetions shown through our choices. Sin never just affects you so we must be careful to make wise choices. God's grace is sufficient. I look forward to your next message. Thank you!

"Before you continue ask yourself if there is a purpose in sharing what's on your heart with the rest of us. Will what you share help your audience in some way?
If the only purpose in sharing will help you or make you stronger in some way then do it, if it is just to get it off your chest, then it should fit the above criteria, and if it is to propel others towards action or to become aware of a larger issue for others to address, then share."

As much as the book is about the power of standing in your truth, this passage sums up the entire book for me and took me back to the basics of my Christian walk.

God's grace is sufficient and in all we do we should edify others and bring glory to God. So that always remains the question, is what I am saying or doing edifying to others and is it glorifying God. There are so many pearls of wisdom that minister in this book.

Thank you Ms Adams for allowing God to write this book through you.

More About the Author

Writing has been my passion since elementary school. I love penning books that entertain readers and give them a few "aha" moments along the way. My novels have been known to yield laughter and tears, and to leave readers feeling deeply connected to the multifaceted characters they meet.
Ultimately, whether you're reading my fiction or nonfiction, I hope you'll reach the end of what I've written not only feeling inspired, but also changed for the better.
If you're new to my work, I hope you'll enjoy! If you're a long-time reader, thanks for your support! Will you please share your thoughts about my novels here on Amazon, and with your friends?

All My Best,
Stacy
