“A book, too, can be a star, a living fire to lighten the darkness,

leading out into the expanding universe.”

–Madeleine L’Engle


Cracking Up

At midlife, some men want a Beemer. K.C.’s husband wants a baby. Another one.

K.C. doesn’t. She already has two kids, her first book just hit bookstore shelves, and the only baby she wants to birth now is the young adult novel she’s worked on for six years. After nine months of trying-and failing-to land an agent for her novel, Kimberlee finds out she’s pregnant. With twins.
By turns hilarious and heart-breaking, this debut memoir takes you on a roller coaster ride of hormonal disequilibrium, professional disappointment, hellacious sleep-deprivation, and the black pit of postpartum depression-only to bring you laughing back to the light.
If you’ve ever wondered where God is in the mess of your upended life, come along with Kimberlee as she learns a whole lot about clinging to God (mostly by her fingernails) and finding grace and goodness in the darkest of life’s corners.

“A boldly honest story, by a gifted writer, of God’s enduring faithfulness.”
Jennifer Dukes Lee

The Circle of Seaons

The seasons tell a story. Are you listening? The church year is a uniquely Christian way of marking time. When Kimberlee Conway Ireton began to understand this, even the most ordinary incidents of her life began to resonate with the stories of Scripture. In this book, Kimberlee follows the structure of the liturgical year–from Advent to the second cycle of Ordinary Time–describing the origin of each observance and its ongoing relevance for our lives. In a word, The Circle of Seasons offers you structure–a simple and traditional way of building your life around your faith, rather than the other way around.

“Beautiful words, deep thoughts…speak my language of rhythm and liturgy and make me yearn for more God. The Circle of Seasons shows us how to keep company with Jesus.”
