Year of Jubilee

Christian authors, The Writing Life, Uncategorized Comments: 24

Happy new year! I’m a couple of days early, but it’s the thought that counts. Right?

Raise your hand if you like making resolutions. I’m a big resolution-maker. I usually have a chart. It might be color-coded. I keep a journal on my resolutions. It’s possible I go a little overboard.

But as I thought and prayed about 2020, I knew I wanted to make some changes. In 2019, I discovered that I have fairly severe osteoarthritis. I was relieved on the one hand, because some of my tests indicated lupus. On the other hand, Continue reading

Before I introduce our May Street Team members, let’s talk crafts. Did you finish your May UFO? I’ve pinned mine to my 2015 UFO Challenge Board. Our number for June is #6. You can check out last month’s UFO post here.

Contest #6, Material Witness

Are you tired of contests yet? I hope not!

Last Saturday we talked about MAX … who has been a big part of the Shipshewana series. So today I thought I’d give away a picture of Max. I found this in a little shop in central Texas … and I couldn’t resist purchasing it!

This week’s winner will receive:

  • An autographed copies of  Material Witness
  • Bookmarks
  • Shipshewana postcard
  • Picture of MAX

I hope you’ve enjoyed these little give aways. Soon we’ll go back to featuring Christian fiction and alternating that with contests on Wednesdays. But I appreciate that you stop by my blog and help me to celebrate the launch of Material Witness.

Leave a comment below with your email and you are entered!

As always, you have the opportunity to enter the contest more than once by sharing the information from this blog with your friends or posting a review of one of my books. Be sure to leave me a 2nd comment stating what you did.

The contest deadline is next Tuesday evening (CST), September 18th.



p.s. — You can order your copy of Material Witness from CBDB&N, or Amazon. It is also available at your local bookstore. You may purchase all 3 books in this series for a special discount price from CBD. Why not purchase your own copy, then if/when you win a copy you can give one away to a friend!
