I'm back!

I just got back home from North Carolina. Emma is now home with her parents (my daughter and son-in-law), dog Cody, and cat Haley! She had a rough time of it when her jaundice spiked, but now everything is fine. Take a peek at Alison and Jason's blog where they post pictures and videos when time allows. Now it's time to return to my regularly scheduled life filled with writing books, writing devotions, and reading delightful papers from my Long Ridge students.

Something cool and unexpected happened yesterday. I learned that my book If the Dress Fits was voted one of the contemporary Heartsong Presents book club favorites for 2008! I also saw the names of several of my close friends on that list, so it was a great day to celebrate! If you click on the Heartsong Presents link above, check out the lists posted on January 23, 2009.
