  • Book Signing–Goodbooks in Oakville, ON

    Had a great day in Oakville.  I got to meet another author, Jayne Self.  She has published two books in the “Seaglass Mysteries” series.  I’m meeting so many intersting people and having others visit that I haven’t seen in years!   This Mother’s Day weekend was made extra special with my “Mom Kostiloff” being brought for her Mother’s Day surprise!  Such a great store with wonderful staff.  Check out Goodbooks when you’re in the Oakville area!

  • Giving


    Today was a day of Giving.  I don’t think you can rest your head any more peacefully at the end of the day then after knowing  you’ve helped someone.   My friend Nicolle Barron and I helped at a Women’s Connection District event in Komoka, Ontario to let the town know of a new church that was there to serve their community.  Nicolle and I helped at the spa and were able to love on some wonderful people.
    When we were done at the We Are Christ event we drove to the Iam1ru, Big Event Fundraiser.  Our giving was a help here, but it didn’t feel like it as we were spoiled with an incredibly delicious dinner, scrumptious desserts and fun with friends.  One of my best friends in the world, Wendy Pauls moderated the event and another of my best friends in the world Lise Miles was there as a supporter.  Strange, but most of my friends have their own websites, as you see all the hyperlinks!  What does that mean???  I think it means that I have surrounded myself with amazing women in my life who are making a difference in this world!  We all challenge each other to be all that God would have us to be!  Wendy works with Sam Welton at Possibilities International.  If you don’t know about this Organization, you should check it out!  It makes becoming an everyday philanthropist easy–I am one, are you???  Click on the logo below to get to their website:

    I was priviledged to speak at this incredible event!  Over 250 women came to the WFCU Centre in Windsor under the leadership of Wendy Taylor.  We enjoyed great worship, fellowship, food and encouragement through the many testimonies shared.  Women of Influence runs these day events twice yearly in the Spring and Fall.  Check them out and join us for the next one on March 29, 2014.  Women of Influence-Windsor

    Todd and I were so excited to have WATER IN THE DESERT beside Joel Osteen’s books!  Joel and Victoria Osteen’s ministry has been such an encouragement to us.  Hope to one day meet them and thank them!
    A couple week’s later  I had a book signing at this store.  My first Indigo/Chapters book signing.  This is a gorgeous store in the Windsor/Tecumseh area.  The staff was so helpful at teaching me how to do book signings!  Great help from my daughter Shelby and her friend Tamara setting up.
