Remember, if you’re serious about writing, you’ll be serious about getting to a writing conference.
Thank you for praying for my mother after her very serious fall. She has made a lot of progress, but she still has a long road ahead. Please continue to pray for healing, comfort, and peace for her and for us as we care for her. I praise God that none of this has taken our Father by surprise and we’re confident that something good will come from this for His honor and glory. After all, He promises us that in His Word!
I pray God’s blessing on the work of your hands and your heart,
