I'm interrupting my story to gather the rest of my thoughts. I'll tell you all about how this move has already been challenging in that my son is acting out in school because he can't seem to process his emotions. I'll explain what it's like when well-meaning people plant a seed of doubt in your mind and how difficult it is to cling to what you know you know...
The story just keeps changing. Today our Realtor is coming by to talk about selling the house. When we moved here, I was terrified about our house in Rockford. It never did sell, but we have fabulous renters.
Sometimes God works things out in a way you never expected. I love that.
Because of it, I feel like I can walk into this next season with more peace. I don't know how God will work it out, but I know he will. I rest in that.
Anyway. Today, I want to direct you to the Creating Keepsakes Magazine Blog where I'm guest posting (yay) and sharing a layout inspired by my book, A Sweethaven Summer. (Should go live later tomorrow!) Since I haven't talked about the 'ol book in awhile, I'll put in a shameless plug here...I think it'd make someone an awfully nice Mother's Day Gift, don't you?
You can head right over HERE and enter to WIN a copy along with some fabulous scrapbooky prizes!
I'm also working on some fun events to help spread the word about the book because we all know word of mouth is what really sells a book.
If you've shared it with a reader in your life...thank you. Immensely.
If you haven't, feel free. I'll pledge my undying devotion to you if you help spread the word.
Here's a little peek at the project I'm sharing over at CK...
(It's a map project. I love a good map.)
A few weeks ago, CK Editor Extraordinaire Jennafer Martin was in town and my good friend Liz and I got to meet up with her for breakfast:
If there's one thing I LOVE about scrapbooking it's the friends I've made...which is why I'd LOVE for you to come join me for this new thing I'm doing right here on my blog. Six weeks of journaling prompts to help you Scrapbook Your Faith.
Now, I'm not much of a video girl (which you will soon see givent he crummy webcam I'm using, but today I'm doing something I've never done before...a video announcement to tell you more about this fun idea.
I want to stress that this is NOT just for scrapbookers...this is for anyone...and I hope you'll join me...
At the risk of looking like a complete dork, here we go...(And the freeze frame/lighting are sooo flattering.)
So, let's recap (and talk about how you can WIN some GREAT, awesome, wonderful stuff.)
