  • Ladie’s Bible Study Pot-Luck Dinner

    Love these girls!  Wish everyone could have been there!  The past few months we have been going through my book WATER IN THE DESERT  for our Bible Study curriculum.  It’s so exciting to see how God is using it!  Julie Larade and I love teaching and leading this great group of women!  If you are in a Bible Study or know of other Bible Studies using my book as curriculum please contact me with the links to the right.  I would love to have some pics of other “Water In The Desert” groups.  I’ve heard from some and just love the reports!

  • Book Signing-Waterloo Gospel Lighthouse

    Had a great time here.  Staff is amazing and my twitter joke about wanting a Starbucks worked! My beautiful friend Wendy Pauls brought me my favourite Chi-Tea Latte!  Now that’s a great friend 🙂

    After the Book Signing I got to go out for dinner with both of my kids to an amazing restaurant called “The Works”.  It was really cool with their roll up door in the front and serving pop from chilled mixing bowls.  Love these times with my kids!

  • Book Signing-Gospel Lighthouse Hamilton, ON

    So great to see some new and familiar faces in my hometown of Hamilton, ON!  A few of my “youth” members stopped by to get signed copies.  It was encouraging to hear how some of “my girls” were using WATER IN THE DESERT for their Bible Study together!
    If you’re in a group or know of a group using my book for their Bible Study, please have them contact me by using the email link to the right of posts on “Contact Us” and send a picture of their group so I can post their pic!  Thanks Gospel Lighthouse!

  • 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!

  • Women of Influence- Windsor

    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

  • Beside Joel & Book Signing–Indigo Book (St. Clair Shores store)

    IMG_2175IMG_3018
    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.
