In my many years on this earth, never in my life would I ever think I’d be a pastor’s wife. Well today I am just that, a pastor’s wife. My husband David and I have been going to various churches to evangelize and fill in when needed. We were called to a church called White Lick Baptist in Berea, KY. When we arrived to that church, we were welcomed with opened arms from the church family and were made to fill right at home. Little did we know that we would be coming back often over the past several months and knowing they were looking for a pastor, they asked us would we be interested, of course we said yes and we would pray if it was God’s will we be honored. It took several months, but God opened this sweet church to us and they voted us to be pastor and pastor’s wife.
My husband and I are humbled to be apart of this church and the be apart of this church family. Our hearts are full joy and we both are excited for this journey that God placed us on and plan to seek God for guidance everyday to do His will for Him and the church. We have been to many churches but felt at home the first day we walked through the doors. We want to share this experience with everyone who walks through the doors of the White Lick Baptist Church and let God’s love be felt. Our goal is to reach a lost soul and let them know our Lord Savior and feel the love He has to offer.
Many people are walking around this earth searching for something they don’t even know what. They feel lonely, down, sad, depressed, out of place, no where to turn to, anxiety, hopelessness, empty inside, and eyes blinded by the truth. So many people are walking around not knowing what they need or are seeking. God put us on this earth to be servants for Him and to praise Him. Our eyes are closed to the truth until the Holy Spirit leads them to a repentance prayer and only when that person is honest, asking for forgiveness of their sins and turning away from their fleshly lives will their eyes be opened to what they need and learn the truth meaning of life. Once the eyes are opened and the heart is free from the sins, you begin a new life and turn away from fleshly ways. As a new Christian freed from the weight of sin, you will need a place to learn more about your Heavenly Father and that’s where you find how to grow in the Lord. Some churches can be miss leading, but find a church that your soul will draw you too and seek God’s guidance where you need to be at attendance regularly. Until you find that home church you are looking for, you can watch Dave preach on White Lick Baptist Church Facebook or our Youtube pages. Make sure you like and subscribe to the pages to be alerted when new post are available. We strongly recommend you to find a home church that is full of love and that is lead by the Holy Spirit.
We look forward to see what God has in store for the church and pray that everyone who comes into it, feels the love of Christ. The love of Jesus Christ is the greatest love of all and once you receive it there is no other love that ever compares to it. May God bless each who takes a moment to read this blog post and may He move your heart closer to Him. Today is the day of repentance and love!
Stay tuned for future updates for up coming books I am writing, which is going to be Christian Romance. Remember my current books are Clean Romance with happily-ever-after endings.
Okay! Why is it already the end of May of 2020? It was just yesterday that the new year began and I had released a new book, Gabriel’s Many Gifts, right? For some reason, this year has few by, but then again, what a year we’ve already endured. Like so many out there, this year has been a rough year so far and the Covid19 virus has turned everyone’s lives upside down and it’s still causing major problems for so many. Everything that’s been going on is like a dystopian book and when will it end. My heart truly goes out to everyone and I pray this nightmare is over real soon so we can go back to our normal lives. But what will our normal lives be when all is said and done? That sure is something to think about isn’t it?
How many of you have had to stay at home? I have been working my day job the whole time, but for several weeks it’s been at home. This year has took a toll on me and for some reason my immune system decided to be out of whack that I catch everything easily, but I am slowly feeling like me again. The first months of this year I’ve been sick and I am just getting back to being myself. I still have my good days and bad, but with God’s help, I will be fine. I’m thankful I have a job that will let me work from home so I can recover. I sure hope you all are well and staying safe right now.
This year will go down in the record books for sure. I mean the next few months really can’t be as bad as the first of the year, can it? I believe, if everyone would turn to Jesus and pray that things would turn around. God has been waiting on us to cry out to Him during this time and now is the time to pray. Maybe we will never go back to our old normal, but a brand new normal that will be even sweeter.
Since I’ve had a rough few months this year, I haven’t gotten to write. I started my next book and wrote several chapters, but the world went crazy and I haven’t felt like writing. Sometimes I try to write but my energy level drops and it’s difficult. So much has happened this year that went past and I even forgot to celebrate. Last Heartbeat had a six year birthday in March. Mother’s Day couple weeks ago, so Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers! How is it already Memorial Day Weekend already? I mean this year has flown by and now June will be here soon. Happy Memorial Day to all who have served and still serving so we all can be safe and free. Thank you all for all you have done and will do!
Today is the first time that I wrote in about six months. I was reading the words I wrote in my new book, and those words reminded me how much I love to write. Soon I will write again and I look forward to finishing my next book because it is something dear to my heart, plus I want to share it with my readers. How many of you have read my last book, Gabriel’s Many Gifts? If you have read it, please leave some good reviews for me, I really appreciate your reviews. Looking for something to read during this Covid19 virus, make sure you check out All My Books. Reading them will make you feel better because my stories always have a happy ending.
As you all know, about five years ago, my life took a different route that lead me to my new future. If you need to catch up, go to my Past Post and read My Back Post. Anyway, I am blessed with my husband, Dave, my handsome two sons, a sweet daughter in law, my sweet grandson, and a sweet new girlfriend of my oldest son. Yes, I am blessed for sure! With everything in the world, upside down, I have so much to be thankful for and there will be a praise once all is better, and even if it’s not, than a praise will always be one my lips for my Jesus. Life is so much sweeter and more peaceful, if you know my Jesus.
So keep your head held high and keep on fighting the good fight during this time. We all struggle through life from time to time, but make sure you never give up. There is always something good that will come out of the storms of life. God Bless You All!!

Gabe hates bullies but loves the beach. He has everything going for him but what if he could plan for the future at a young age? His planning is what sets the storyline of the whole Last Heartbeat Series. It was his planning that lives would be changed for so many and for some he never knew. What if you could be like Gabe and do what he did in planning for the future? Who knows what will happen and the lives that could be changed? Are you up for the challenge that may set the future for so many as Gabe did? Even at the end of his story, Gabe continues to set his future and make changes that he himself will always be grateful for.

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads who have been there for their children. The dads who stepped up and took care of other dad’s kids, are special dads. My hope is that every dad has a special day on Father’s Day. If your dad is still with you, take a moment to thank him for being your dad on Father’s Day and everyday.
Not all dads can be celebrated on Father’s Day because they are no longer with us, but take a moment and think about him this day. My dad is one who is in heaven with Jesus and although I miss him, I would rather him to be with Jesus. Happy Father’s Day, Dad!! One day, when it’s time for me to come to heaven, I’ll get to see you again and that day will be celebrated forever.
Happy Father’s Day to my husband, Dave!! You have stepped into your role as a dad and have been exceptional role model to our boys. You came into their lives when they were older, but you’ve quickly showed them love and a godly influence they needed. Thank you, for all you do for us and allowing us to be truly loved by you.
Happy Father’s Day to my youngest son, Timothy!! Your baby boy will soon be here and I know you’ll love him with all your heart. Always allow God to lead you in your role model as a dad and you’ll never go wrong. I look forward to seeing you as dad and watching you grow into the father, I know you’ll become.
Happy Birthday to my first book, Last Heartbeat (March 27, 2014). How did four years go by so fast? It sure has been a blessing to share my book with all my friends and family. Hope that everyone who has taken the time to read, Last Heartbeat, has enjoyed my story as much as I have while writing it. While writing Last Heartbeat, I laughed and cried along with my characters as they came to life and during their ups and downs. I was scared to publish the story and sharing it with everyone. Knowing this story wasn’t for everyone, but to the people who love this type of story and genre, it’s for you, and that’s why I published Last Heartbeat.
What is Last Heartbeat about? It’s about young love and this love comes together after a battle for life. “Just hang on a little longer…” There is heartache and pain that ends in happily ever after. I was sitting and thinking about my dad and his heart condition one day, wondering why the doctors never mentioning heart transplant. Then suddenly a story began developing inside my head that I had to write. No, my dad never did get a heart transplant because he didn’t fit the criteria, and now has went home to heaven. My dad was proud of me for writing my novels and told everyone about them, even took some books for me and sold them. Yes, Last Heartbeat is about a fictional but real life heart transplant recipient, who struggles to get her life back and to live a normal life. She strives to live a normal life that leads her to have a special connection with a guy, and that connection goes beyond what you normally think.
Alexia has fought hard to over come a tragic illness in her past. Barely getting on with her life, she finally leaves home to enter the real world. This first big step makes her appreciate all that she has struggled with. This next step in her life, also leads her to a possible heartbreak. How can Alexia keep up with all of her struggles and keep going on?
Phillip has lost someone close to him when he was younger. This person was the most important person in his life. He has struggled to get past this loss, and once he does, he finds out something about his favorite person that makes him feel the hurt all over again. Why can’t Phillip move on for good? Can he really forgive someone in the past, if they no longer live?
A chance meeting has Alexia and Phillip spending hours talking. This sparks an attraction for each other. Every day, running into each other makes the attraction grow stronger until they finally give in to it. When another accident strikes, both of their pasts come barreling back to haunt them. Can they move forward knowing the secrets they now know about one another? How much more can two broken people endure? Will they find their way back into one another’s arms or have they finally come to a breaking point in life?
Here is a book trailer for Last Heartbeat, hope you enjoy. Click on the link below.
Last Heartbeat was supposed to end up as a standalone book, but the other characters in the story would not keep quite, and they made me end up writing two more books in the series, The Life Gift (second book) and One More Life (third book). I still have one more story in this series that needs to be written and have started it but life threw me some curve balls so I’m behind on writing. Check out this link here to read about what happened. Where has T R Lykins gone….
Even in the darkest of days, I found out that God was with me and had a plan for me. I could not see it at the time, but now I see it perfectly clear. God opened my eyes (Acts chapter 9 versus 3 to 6) and my heart. To read all about what God has blessed me with click on this link. Merry Christmas and God bless all…

Hope everyone has patience with me until I get back to writing and the next part of my journey in life. I will be writing in the future under my new name and not my pen name T R Lykins so stay tuned.
