Calling All Kudos!
Okay, friends, itâ€™s time for us to celebrate YOU and celebrate EACH OTHER! After all, thatâ€™s the goal of The Christian Writerâ€™s Denâ€“-to encourage and instruct writers.
In order to do that, I need to hear from you. It doesnâ€™t matter how small it may seem to you or how recently itâ€™s been, every step forward is a step that leads to the next one.
So I want to know what youâ€™ve been up to. Have you had something exciting happen recently in your writing or speaking life? Maybe youâ€™ve had an article published, signed a book contract, released a new book, got an agent, or started a new blog. If so, we want to hear from you. Everybodyâ€™s welcome to share.
Itâ€™s really simple, but I do ask that you contact me with the info in this format and order ONLY:
**Your state in two-letter abbreviation
**Link to your website or blog
**Your good news
**Link to your good news, if online (online bookstore, online article, etc)
I canâ€™t wait for us to celebrate with you!
Did You Work on MoGo7000 in November? (And remember, your NaNoWriMo words count toward MoGo7000!)

And who won Sue Badeau’s coloring book?
Congrats, Cathy! Simply contact me with your snail mail address and your book will be on its way!
And I know many of you want your own copies of Sue’s book for kids who have experienced trauma and the adult book for those who love and care for traumatized kids. You can make a difference!

Thank you for joining me today, sweet friends. And thank you for all your words of encouragement and prayer support as Mother continues her healing. She has now moved to assisted living and is doing much better–Praise God! Today is the third of four doctor appointments I’m taking the moms to this week, so it’s another packed schedule.
But with each week that goes by, I realize more and more what miracles we’ve received with both our moms. My mother-in-love will be 93yo in January and still lives in her own home with the help of us kids, and my mother could have easily died from complications related to her fall. What a mighty God we serve!
Blessings as you rush through this Christmas season as well. I pray for those of you who aren’t receiving a miracle this Christmas, or your miracle is the gift of a loved one at the feet of Jesus. I’m praying for you today.
Christmas blessings to all as we celebrate the Gift and the Giver.
