Jodie Bailey writes novels about freedom and the heroes who fight for it. Her novels include Freefall and Crossfire, from Love Inspired Suspense, as well as Quilted by Christmas, from Abingdon Press. Her devotions have appeared in Fighting Fear: Winning the War at Home and Sweet Freedom with a Slice of Peach Cobbler. She is convinced a camping trip to the beach with her family, a good cup of coffee, and a great book can cure all ills. Jodie lives in North Carolina with her husband, her daughter, and two dogs.
“The two biggest themes of my own personal testimony are redemption and deliverance. They are so much a part of me that they weave into the story as well. I guess it’s because I want people to know that there is such a thing as a second chance… and a third… and a fourth… with God. That He forgives and loves and that, in our relationships, we can and should forgive and love also.
