The Girls Write Out Team is going to be together again! For the first time in way too long. I'm so excited to have made my reservation for the ACFW conference in Indy this year. We'll all meet up there. My heart is light this morning. It helps that I still fit into my ball gown, so I can go to the Gala. Just like Cinderella and her glass slipper. It fit!
Will we see you there?

|Releases Today! |
"Barefoot Summer" released last week, and I couldn't be more excited! I've anticipated this release for so long--it's the first in a new series, and I'm swooning over the cover. In celebration, I'm giving away 2 signed books!
Leave a message, including your email address, and I'll draw 2 random winners!
Here's a blurb of the book:
Madison’s heart has been closed for years. But one summer can change everything.
In the years since her twin brother’s drowning, Madison McKinley has struggled to put it behind her. Despite the support of her close-knit family and her gratifying job as a veterinarian, the loss still haunts her. To find closure, Madison sets out to fulfill her brother’s dream of winning the town’s annual regatta. But first she has to learn to sail, and fast.
Beckett O’Reilly knows Madison is out of his league, but someone neglected to tell his heart. Now she needs his help—and he’ll give it, because he owes her far more than she’ll ever know.
Madison will do anything—even work with the infamous Beckett O’Reilly—to reach her goal. And as much as she’d like to deny it, the chemistry between them is electrifying. As summer wanes, her feelings for him begin to grow and a fledgling faith takes root in her heart.
But Beckett harbors a secret—one that will test the limits of their love and the depth of Madison’s faith. Can their new romance survive summer’s challenges? And will achieving her brother’s dream give Madison the peace she desperately seeks?

Now that I'm working for the plastic surgeon's office, I'm having to keep my work and my time much more organized. There are so many great applications for making that happen, and I'm grateful. I got a timer that allows me to pause and restart and it will keep track of my hours. It's called Desktop Task Timer. Then, I got one that cleans up your desktop as you work so it keeps your computer looking "clean" -- I love that. It's called Desktop Tidy.
All of these are so affordable and entrepreneurs are really making bank on these idea. I'm just loving that it's a win-win for both of us. What about you, do you have a favorite app that makes you more productive?

We're going to Montana in July to see my brothers. I can hardly wait! The thing is, we're flying and my suitcase was the size of an SUV. So at my prodding, hubby went and bought me a mid-size suitcase, somewhere between an SUV and a Geo. I can live with that.
But here's the thing. We'll be gone for ten days and I have to fit everything in the smaller luggage. I dare not complain after hubby went to the trouble to get me a new one. So please, please, please tell me how you pack for trips to get everything into your luggage. I've seen Kristin, Colleen and Denise fit so much into small luggage and I am just amazed that they can do that. They always laugh at me with my SUV. So now I've joined the ranks of those with smaller luggage but have no idea how to make it all fit in there.
Suggestions? Please tell me you have some or I'm doomed to wear the same clothes over and over. :-)

Amy Grant is back with a new album, and her voice is as pure as it ever was. I simply love the emotion in her voice. When she sings, you know she means it.
On this album, she collaborates with a lot of big names, including her husband Vince Gill and one of my all-time favorites, James Taylor. Amy's voice is like warm caramel and the musical reminders of how all-encompassing God's grace is will touch the hardest of hearts.
My personal favorite in the collection is, "Don't Try So Hard."
I did not become a Christian until I was 24 years' old, so Amy's voice has really been one of the soundtracks of my faith and all I can say is, that it's good to have her back.
