with Michelle Sutton

Welcome to the Barn Door Book Loft, Michelle!
People talk about life before children—what was your life before writing?

I did a lot of cross stitch and crocheted blankets. I have always kept myself busy creating things, but before I created stories I created pics and blankets.

What book have you recently enjoyed reading?
Composing Amelia by Alison Strobel

If you were a dessert, what would you be?
I love the Reeses Peanut Butter Cup sundaes from Friendly's Restaurants!

If you were to find a purple polka-dotted monster in your kitchen one morning, how would you respond?
I'd probably blink twice, try to clear my head, ask myself if I needed my morning coffee, then swear off fantasy and sci fi books for life... All of that would happen after I ran screaming into the other room searching for a fly swatter and grabbing a thermometer to make sure I wasn't sick and hallucinating.

Tell us about one of your favorite memories or moments in your life.
Other than the day I got married and the birth of my children I'd have to say the first Christmas I had with my husband when he gave me mustard seed earrings and told me with tears in his eyes that he got them for me because God planted a seed of love for me in his heart and it just kept growing…

What is the Lord teaching you, or recently taught you?
How to trust Him in every aspect of my life and to listen to what He is telling me, not what people think I should do. Sometimes it's easy to cordon off a section of our hearts and not allow the Lord in there. Sometimes it's easier to listen to the advice of others than to seek God's will for ourselves. But none of that works very well. He knows what's going on inside of us anyway. He also knows what is best for us. We just have to trust Him. This is an ongoing process for me.

When is your next book due out and can you tell us about it?
I have several books releasing every year and just signed a number of new book contracts for 2012-2014. More info can be found on my website under Michelle's books at www.michellesutton.net.

Great interview, Michelle.

You brought back memories talking about your favorite ice cream from Friendly's ice cream parlor. We used to live in Florida and go there all the time after church but there isn't any out here. I live in the same state as you.

Love the cover of your book and would love to read it.

Blessings,
Jo

I think he'd make a great husband shopper especially around Christmas. I had thought of hiring him out. But he doesn't travel. Sorry... :)
