Welcome to my blog! I hope to be a resource to help you in your walk with God. Now more than ever we need to get back to the basic fundamentals of moral living and take a stand for what is right and truthful with God as our ultimate authority. His Word is reliable and preserved and can be trusted, so that is the basis for my advice and teaching. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or topics you would like me to cover. I look forward to sharing what God has placed on my heart. See my website at http://www.dawnfoss.tateauthor.com and http://www.dawnfoss.com/ for books and music I have written that will enrich your life!

Ezekiel 22:30: "And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none." Let's stand in the gap together!

A Letter for U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal

I had given Senator Blumenthal a copy of my book, I Will Stand, along with a personal letter of gratitude for the wonderful words he spoke at the Sandy Hook event in Southington a month or so ago.  He wrote back a thank you note that I found to be very encouraging and supportive.  It reads:

Dear Ms. Foss,

Please accept my deepest thanks for the copy of your book, I Will Stand.

I appreciated your sharing your experience at a book signing in Southington.  Since the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School, I have witnessed an outpouring of love and support from communities throughout Connecticut.  Your book, and your efforts to touch the lives of children and their families, are an important contribution to the care for others that I have seen.

Thank you for writing.  I wish you the best of luck with your upcoming book, and look forward to hearing from you again.


Richard Blumenthal
United States Senate

That letter really blessed my heart!  I was so happy that he recognized the burden of my heart to help children and families.  The upcoming book he's referring to is Christmas Love, which should be out in November.  It's an illustrated children's book about how the love from the original Christmas story can be applied to families and communities.  Tate Publishing and I are currently working on the cover and illustrations.  It's been a very exciting journey writing these two books!  I am currently writing my third book, Fully Persuaded, which is a book that goes over the fundamentals of Christianity to give older kids and teens a strong foundation in Christianity so they can live their faith and share their faith with confidence!

God bless you!  Thank you for reading my blog and sharing this journey with me!
