I LOVE LIFE and have a true passion for exploring all it has to offer. I sometimes get totally lost in my writing and web designing because I enjoy it so intensely, and I feel it is the most desirable work to put my time into. I also love a good challenge and reaching my goals in my work and in life is what I’m always striving for. Accomplishment takes root through happiness & contentment, passion & perseverance, and faith & integrity. I lift my head up high and thank God for the opportunities to pursue my purpose.

Great event for Haiti Fund last night. Three cheers to Cindy Schmehl and her team for fabulous food, fun and friends gathered to celebrate more than 25 years of partnership with the Church of Holy Spirit in Lascahobas. The chili was great especially Mike Hanna’s Gas Mask Chili! And then there was Angie Schlossberg’s Cowby Chili mmmmmmmmmmm! The kids had a great time with author Erin Nelson & the story hour. The DJ was fun and when he activated the smoke machine it reminded us of mornings in Haiti when the charcoal fires were lit to cook the morning meal. If you couldn’t make it, there is still time to donate to our March mission effort. Checks to St. John’s Haiti Fund in care of the church.

COMMENTS:

FUN TO KNOW:

✯ THE STAR OF BETHLEHEM ✯ has become a symbol of Christmas. During the Christmas season, it is traditionally placed upon Christmas Trees or positioned above the Baby Jesus in manger scenes. This star was a light that the oriental wise men followed from distant countries (Persia, Saba, and, Sheba) to the exact place where Jesus was born in Bethlehem. Many astronomers have attempted but failed to provide a “naturalistic” explanation for the Christmas Star. However, the only explanation concludes that God caused something supernatural to happen.
A special “THANKS!!!” to all (over 100!) of you who purchased Bibletoons: Book One, “Adventure with Noah” before it was even released nationwide! The release date was April 17th, 2012. I am so pleased with all the enthusiasm!! My numerous book signings and story hours have been a success and so much fun, too. I love spreading joy through my writing and appreciate all your excitement! Give a special gift for the little loved ones in your life…a gift you will all treasure forever! 🙂
