Volunteering Ideas- An 8 Part Summer Series (Part Three)

Did you know that one of the main benefits of volunteering is to make YOU happier?
This summer, for the next few weeks, I’ll be highlighting some ways you can volunteer in your community.

Week Three:

Become a docent.
This is a fun activity! Become a trained guide at your local museum, aquarium, or university. Sometimes, training is required, but the experience is enjoyable and educational. You’ll be able to help your community, plus meet new friends!

Is there a favorite museum in your area where you can volunteer? Please leave your comments below.

It’s a Christmas in July promotion!

Travel with me to Blowing Rock with a concert pianist and a professional stuntman in my sweet holiday romance, Candleglow and Mistletoe.

Noelle Wentworth doesn’t mind getting away from St. Augustine to fill in at her ailing aunt’s candle shop.

A few weeks in Snowing Rock will help her get past the humiliating memory lapse that ruined an important piano concert—and, ultimately, her marriage to her overbearing duet partner.

She’s mentally rehearsing for her comeback performance when the bus she’s riding in slides off an icy mountain road.
And one deep, calming voice emerges from the confusion to slow her racing heart—right before his ruggedly handsome face kicks it back into allegro.

Gabe Waters is usually prepared for anything—as a professional stuntman, his life depends on it—but nothing prepared him for Noelle, the unattainable high school crush whose bravery saved him from more than just a bully’s flying fist. There’s no hint she recognizes him, but Gabe knows that face, those eyes…and he sees something that wasn’t there before. Distrust and apprehension.

Their unexpected attraction kindles something as warm and sweet as a holiday candle.
But the weight of their pasts could turn the promise of love to ashes.

Candleglow and Mistletoe is available as an ebook, paperback, and audiobook. Snag your copy today!
