Gracie, Grover, and Grandy Groundhog Go to Elevation!

Author Visits are among my favorite things! Elevation Church is among my favorite churches!
Put the two together and it's a winning combination!

The icing on this bookish cake is that 2 of my grandbabies were there to assist!

This handsome little man introduced Grandy Groundhog and me to his classmates!

They were totally adorable and such amazing listeners!

Then this beauty, my firstborn grand, introduced us to her friends!

Wow! They were incredible! So attentive and with such thoughtful questions!
Surely some future writers there!

Because both groups were so engaged, they got to use their imaginations as I read the manuscript for my upcoming book...Gracie & Grover Go to the Beach

God's goodness and grace truly is amazing! I'm so thankful for the opportunities He showers and the groundhoggy blessings He provides!

Groundhog Day with Sir Walter Wally!

What an Amazing Day!
Sir Walter Wally and I got in some good snuggles!

I had the awesome privilege of mingling with readers of all ages
while they waited in line for a closeup visit with Sir Walter Wally!!
This sweet Dad read the whole G is for Groundhog book to his precious girls!
 All the feels!

I love teachers!!
It blesses my heart to know that my books are being shared in classrooms!

This is my treasured friend, Denise Shadduck, Wally's "Mommy"!
I've enjoyed the gift of her friendship since we met at the 
NC Museum of Natural Sciences several years ago.
She was so kind and gracious to give me the opportunity
to be the "entertainment" and book signer,
while folks waited in line for the celebrity of the day!

The day was topped off by making Instagram posts of Groundhog loving friends!

All I can say is that our God surely has a sense of humor,
and I wouldn't trade this groundhoggy adventure for anything!

NC Christian Writers Conference was Amazing!!

Oh how I love writers conferences!! NCCWC did not disappoint! Incredible teaching, inspiration (like a revival for writers), an atmosphere that propelled new friendships to form, business connections to be made, and experiences to treasure and motivate writers to follow the dream God placed in our hearts! What a blessing!

This conference was held at Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Liberty, NC. You won't find a finer group of people than the ones in this congregation! Their heart for service was unparalleled! And oh, do they love their pastor, Andy Clapp. And that precious man of God was serving his heart out. Even his children ministered to the faculty and writers in attendance. They sure deserved a little book treat!

Aren't they just adorable!?!

Many thanks to Serious Writer, NC Christian Writers Conference, and Mt. Zion Baptist Church!
