A Glance Back at 2017 and a Peek Forward to 2018

Here’s a little trip down memory lane, with my top author highlights from 2017, plus a teeny hint at what’s coming for 2018…

APRIL 2017:

Girls’ Love Letters from God, the fourth book in the popular Love Letters from God series hits the shelves. and it’s even read by mermaids!

JUNE 2017:

I sign two new contracts with Zondervan, for titles coming in 2019.

JULY 2017:

A wonderful surprise lands on my doorstep.. it’s the Korean editions of Snuggle Time Prayers and Snuggle Time Psalms. Check out their cute covers!









AUGUST 2017:

170 children in a United Methodist church in Ohio receive Love Letters from God  at Camp Read-a-Lot.


My two new Christmas titles, ‘Twas the Evening of Christmas and Snuggle Time Christmas Stories make their debut.










I get to star in my first five minutes of TV fame with the lovely Meredith Terhaar.

Phew! And that’s not all!

5 bookstore events + 2 blog tours + 6 craft shows + 8 school author visits + 3 radio interviews + 8 church events  + 2 conferences = 1 very busy year!

And as 2017 draws to a close, I want to thank YOU, my loyal readers, my encouragers and my cheerleaders. Every review you wrote, every event you attended, every comment you left, every book you bought, every post you shared, every ‘like’ you gave me: they all add up to so much.

Most of all, I want to thank my great God, my co-author, without whom no words would ever have been written, and no books would ever have been published. To God, alone, the One who can do far more than I ever imagined, be the glory.

 Now to him who by the power at work within us is able to accomplish abundantly far more than all we can ask or imagine,  to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen. EPHESIANS 3:20

Are you ready for 2018 book news? Stay tuned! But if you simply can’t wait, see how many brand-new titles you can spot here.
