when you’re sure others must think
you’ve fallen off the side of the earth?
If you look at how long it’s been
since I’ve written a blog,
YOU might get that impression of ME!
Well, it’s not true!
I’m still here.
So then, you ask,
what are you doing that’s more important
than writing your blog?
Something that, in one way,
is just as important as writing my novels.
That’s getting them from me to my readers!
A major project has been
polishing the writing in Transformed in Bethany,
getting my daughter to design a beautiful cover
(Don’t you like it?),
and sending and reading proofs
--all, so I can soon have this revised novel ready for YOU.
In February, I went to North Wales, England, and Ireland
to visit family and talk about the importance of stories.
I had some GREAT times interacting with others,
seeing more and more evidence of
how much stories influence and form our lives--
past, present, and future.
Now, I am frantically getting bookmarkers ordered,
a brochure designed,
and a display arrangement planned
in order to be ready for events in the coming months.
In March, I go to Idaho.
In April, I lead two CMTA workshops
at the Pasadena Convention Center.
In May, I’m going to Iowa, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.

You Write Your Life with Stories
Here’s my gift to you today, a passage that blesses me (that means, makes me happy):
“The Lord is near.
Do not be anxious about anything,
but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving,
present your requests to God.
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding,
will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 4:5b-7 NIV
