Today is National Crossword Puzzle Day and to celebrate I thought I would create a puzzle based on the Grace Series Novels. The only problem… I don’t like crosswords, I prefer number or spatial puzzles like Soduku or block puzzles. The only word puzzles I like are word searches.
A Little Puzzle History
Crosswords invented in 1890
Scrabble was invented in 1938
Word Search puzzles were invented in 1968 by Norman E. Gibat in a newspaper in Oklahoma.
Anna Christine Boulier was born in 1982
Restoring Grace written in 2013
Restoring Grace, Accepting Grace, and Trusting Grace published in 2018
Word Search Puzzle for the Grace Series created December 2018
PUZZLES ARE A TEACHING TOOL
I remember learning many of my spelling words with puzzles, and working on themed word searches for busy work when the teacher needed to keep us occupied.
During this busy Christmas season, it’s important to take a few minutes to slow down and a puzzle would be a perfect excuse to stop and smell the roses so to speak.
Word searches remind me of learning, school, VBS, holidays, and fun.
Please enjoy this puzzle I created using words from four novels in the Grace Series. This puzzle includes words from my upcoming novel, Renewed by Grace available in Spring 2019.
Words like Mark, Noah, and Writer are directly from the fourth novel as part of a sneak peek. NEXT WEEK WILL FEATURE A NEW BLOG POST of the prologue and first chapter of this novel.
To read the original chapters before edits, check out my book, Trusting Grace and read about the first mention of Andrea Cabot and her catering business Taste & See.
GRACE SERIES WORD SEARCH
I’ve attached a PDF of the solution but don’t cheat!
Until next time, may God’s grace surround you,
