WORTH THE TIME by Laura Jackson
Our guest blogger today is Laura Jackson. Laura loves books—reading and writing them. A lifelong reader, Laura studied English in college and taught 7th grade language arts before earning her Master's degree and becoming a school librarian. Now, she spends her days sharing great books with kids and her evenings writing books about teenage girls discovering God and His plan for their lives.
Welcome, Laura. If you could have dinner with one person from today or history (except Jesus) who would it be?
That’s hard. Lincoln fascinates me. When he was killed, he was carrying (maybe in his pocket) 8 newspaper clippings. It seems the weight of what the country was going through was heavy on his heart, and I’d love to talk to him, to know what he was thinking, feeling at one of the darkest moments in American history.
Please tell us a little about your novel, Worth the Time.
Routinely ignored by her single mother, high school senior Lindsey Hamilton hides her loneliness behind a mask of flirtatious self-confidence that has many boys wrapped around her finger. However, during community service required for graduation, she meets a shy guy with a haunted past who barely gives her the time of day. Why doesn't he like her? Then the father she thought had abandoned her before birth wants to meet, and she discovers everything she believed about him is a lie. How will Lindsey learn to trust so she can realize that she has been loved all along?
What takeaway value do you want your readers to have?
I want them to know how much the One who created them loves them and pursues them. We’ll have hundreds of relationships in life—family, friends, romantic loves—but none compare to the one we have with Jesus.
