PWI: This trip was AMAZINNNGG!

I am back home in Tucson and still basking in the wonderful trip I had to St. Louis, Mo. I can't shake this happy feeling and it seems to show because people can just tell I am on a cloud. went to St. Louis for Writers conference. I met some amazing people and made great connections. I passed out my new business card like hot cakes, I learned so much, and I came back with tons of inspiration. I already have a writing assignment! The maybe more on the horizon! In Jesus Name! I also got to display my book and got to shop at the bookstore myself for a nifty discount.

I recieved so many compliments on this trip from my article in Reflections Magazine to my thick long hair! Some people actually recongized me. It was a terrific feeling! I seriously went there with a bit of self doubt but I left there feeling self assured.

I also got to visit my dear sweet friend Brittany Lay. I went to her church Wednesday night and immediately fell in love with her pastors wife and pastor. I soon meet her friends who were so sincere and friendly. I was in awe to find that many of them were my age and older and Still not married. Imagine that! I felt soo at home and glad to know that not everyone in Pentecost is getting married at age 20. I wish i could have stayed their long and just maybe someday soon i will come back and hopefully have a reason for coming to..ha.! I was convinced to go to their Easter play on Friday night and have no regrets about that! The acting was first rate and overall very well done!

There is so much more to write but i wont. I am getting a little sleepy now and the truth is i wonder if anyone actually reads this blog other than me! HA. Well...i seriously need to just get my mind off of this trip and bring myself down to the reality of Tucson, Arizona. There is tons that needs to be done. Goodnight!

God Is So Great! I am soo blessed. I feel bad for ever complaining. Its a Wonderful Life! Thank you Jesus!

Its a good day!

Hi! Yes its March!! Spring is here. Its getting nice and warm in Tucson and i am loving it!

My article in Reflections magazine finally came out. I was sent 5 copys and thought they did a wonderful job in presenting it. I also had a talk with my Pastor and he was totally okay with me making up business cards to pass out to people who purchase my book. They are ordered and should be here in a couple of days, just in time for my trip to Pentecostal Writers Institute in St. Louis next Wednesday!! I also let him know that my goal is to eventually be a ladies speaker. He said he would pass the word out. So we shall see what will become of my dream!!

My website is finally up. It has the shopping cart working so you can actually purchase my book. It still needs work but at least it works. I have a new domain for it. Its It has a guestbook on it too.

I also got to sing the other day at church. I felt like i was having a nerves break down the night before because i hadnt sang in so long. I figured maybe that isnt my calling anymore. Maybe i'm just not a singer anymore. But to my surprise God showed up that Sunday morning and blessed. So i guess i am still a singer! ha.

I have been thinking how i really need to go on a vacation. Not a church conference. Those are great and all but i need a real vacation. A vacation where i don't to get dressed up for church. I can just stay in my jean skirt and not do my hair. Just relax and have fun. So...who knows. Maybe i will get to do something like that with a little help from my friends!

I seems to have things figured out for writing my next book. I think i am going to call it either Broken Blessings or On the Battle Ground. I like them both. Plus i just bought the domain name On The Battle Dont know yet. The only really thing that is missing is my motivation to write the book. I have the time but dont feel like writing. I must make that a priority if i expect to have it out by General Conference in October in North Carolina. The Lord knows.

So scratch its
