From The Vault

Today's Heartsong from the Vault is Debby Mayne's Love's Image.

From the back cover:

Injured in a serious car crash, supermodel Shannon McNab's world is rocked by a prominent scar on her left cheek. Shaken by this "imperfection," Shannon's boyfriend abandons her. When an old high school friend drags Shannon to a church singles' group, she meets Judd Manning. The sweet, down-to-earth schoolteacher makes her laugh and see what's most important in life - and as they grow closer to each other and the Lord, a romantic attraction builds. But when Shannon's scar fades, the lure of her glamorous old life proves too strong to resist. Is it possible for a jetsetting supermodel and a home-loving schoolteacher to find common ground?

There is a limited quantity of this book left, so don't delay. Hop on over to the Heartsong website to order one before they're gone.

Question of the Day: Who was your favorite teacher?

Don't forget to leave a comment to be entered in the Friday Drawing.


  1. My favorite teacher was Mrs. Day. She was my English/Literature teacher my junior and senior year in high school. She saw I had a talent and encouraged me to write.


  2. I don't remember the teacher's name, but he taught economics/government. There was something about him that appealed to me, but he was joke of many of the kids' joke. He was 'different' physically. I found out 30+ years later that he was a Christian. I wasn't in high school, yet there was that something that stood out in him. Now I know it was Jesus!

  3. Mrs. Edwards. She taught Science and was the Librarian. When I moved from an Atlanta suburb to rural Arkansas, I had a hard time fitting in. Rather than sit alone at the lunch table, I skipped lunch, with a growling stomach, and wandered around the campus instead.

    Mrs. Edwards always brought her lunch and sat in her classroom to eat. I discovered her one day and visited daily after that. She put up with me and always acted like she was happy to see me. In hindsight, it was probably her only free time that she didn't have to deal with kids, but she gave it up for a lonely little girl. Eventually, I made friends and left her to eat in peace.

    I wrote an essay about her, Lunch With Mrs. Edwards. It won some local contests and made it into 200 finalists for A Cup of Comfort for Teachers, but didn't get chosen for the book. I gave her a copy of it. She passed away last winter and I went to her funeral. She was a wonderful lady.

  4. I was homeschooled, so I only have had one teacher! My dad! LOL! He was a great teacher and we learned a lot together. :)

    This book looks great and the cover is lovely.

    I had many wonderful teachers, but my favorite was Mrs. Gloria Rollins. I had her for three science classes in high school. While English and history have always been my favorite subjects, she was the best. She inspired me to become a teacher because she was obviously a Christian without ever having to say so. She conducted her class that way. She never taught things like evolutionary theories and always held true to her beliefs. It inspired me because I thought it would be great to be like her and have that kind of influence, like she had on me. Even after I was no longer her student, she came to several book signings when I was first being published and she came to the funeral home when my mother passed away. I say her last May at my niece's graduation and got a big hug. She is a wonderful Christian lady and teacher and God used her wonderfully in my life. Thank you so much, Mrs. Rollins!

  6. My favorite teacher was Mr. Heter. He kept the first short story I ever wrote. He inspired in me a love of writing. Thank you, Mr. David Heter.

  7. My favorite teacher was Hazel Peppers. I had her for 5th and 6th grades, and she made quite an impression on me. Although she's in Heaven now, she and I were able to visit a few times after I became a teacher. I was able to let her know SHE was one of the reasons I chose that career! ~ Patti Jo :)

  8. I had so many favorite teachers I can't name all of them, but here are a few I remember: Wayne Ohashi, Donna Chun, Paul Sato, Pamela Webb and Zan Skelton. The first four teachers were at Radford High School in Hawaii, and the last was at Biloxi High in Mississippi.

    They were all challenging, and they made learning fun! I'll have to give Mr. Ohashi and Mr. Skelton credit for my love of research. After I thought I had enough, they always demanded more. Now I love digging for information.
