PEACE FOR PARENTS OF TEENS - Beth Shriver - Free Book

I'm happy to welcome my friend, Beth Shriver back to the blog. Beth, you are writing nonfiction. Do you also write fiction?

I have two fiction books published, a romantic suspense and a young adult. Another one is being contracted but I can’t give the info out just yet. :-)

What would you like for our readers to know about you personally?

I never thought I’d be an author but have been blessed in so many ways since I have been obedient to God in persevering and writing stories in His name. There are ups and downs but when you feel the Lord calling you, you know to ride out the storm until His will is done.

Tell us about your family.

I’ve been married for over 20 years and have an 18-year-old daughter in college studying criminal justice, and a 16-year-old son in high school who plays football, basketball, and runs track.

Have you written other nonfiction books?

This is my only non-fiction book, and I don’t plan to write another as I only seem to feel inclined when there is strife in my life, so I think I’ll stick to fiction and let my characters go through the grief. :-)
What other books have you written, and where can the readers of the blog find them?

My romantic suspense, A Case of the Heart, and young adult, Love at First Flight, are both available on

Do you have any other books in the works right now?

My new agent is busy at work submitting my women’s fiction, Reclaiming Faith, a historical, Remnant of the Fall, and speculative, Fear of Falling. I have recently signed a contract for my Amish book, Annie's Truth, which will release in 2011.

Where on the Internet can the readers find you?

What kinds of hobbies and leisure activities do you enjoy?

I enjoy reading and writing, of course. I also like to horse back ride, hike, tennis, ride my mountain bike and if I’m really brave, golfing, because I’m not very good at it. :-)

Why did you write the featured book?

This devotional was written during a trying time I had with my teen. I originally wrote these devotionals for me, to get through that difficult time. I was encouraged to continue writing them to share with others and here it is today being published. :-)

What do you want the reader to take away from the book?

I hope these devotionals will help parents through the trials of raising their teen. I had so wished for an unconditional book of devotionals that would give me a sense of peace. I hope the words in Peace for Parents of Teens will help others in the same way it helped me in writing them.

Thank you, Beth, for this interesting interview. I wish I'd had a book like that when I was raising teens.

Sounds like one my daughter in law needs. Our oldest granddaughter is 14 and very good at it! It's nice to hear about authors who write fiction and non fiction. Best of luck to you. Enter me :)

I would like to read this book. For years I have worked with pregnant teens in parenting support groups. The success rate is very,very low. But it can be done.

I would love to have this book to read for myself as grandmother and for my daughter who is raising her step-daugher age 13. She help to raise her x's 2 children but she never had children of her own. She is coping with her husbands death last yr and with the 13 yr old. She has friends to help her but I think this book may help her more.

Awesome, Beth.
I wish this book had been available several years ago, but I still need to get it for my daughter...she'll have a teen in four years.

Journeying with a daughter through her adolescence is no easy trip. Kudos to you for not only getting through it with grace, but helping others do so as well.

Tami said...

I'm almost out of denial that I have a teenager. This book would be a great help it sounds like!

Kristi said...

I have 2 teens and could definitely use some peace!
