I've got a gift for you, and a sweet way to finish up your Christmas shopping! Read on!
Most of you know about my new children's book, Flash the Donkey Makes New Friends, which came out recently. I'm so excited that it is finding its way under Christmas trees and into the hands of little people everywhere!

It's a story of an adorable donkey, whose curiosity sometimes gets him into trouble. With the help of his newfound friends – Jed the goat, Carson the pig, and Ruby the chicken – Flash manages to turn problems into adventures and learns valuable lessons along the way.
It's really a story about kindness, something this world needs more than ever right about now.

I loved getting to write and illustrate a story that invites conversation and activities for you and your children (or grandchildren!) People are falling in love with Flash and his friends, and are treasuring the charming story in these pages.
Of course, the inspiration for the children's book was the Real Life Flash, who was featured in my personal memoir, Flash the Homeless Donkey Who Taught Me About Life, Faith and Second Chances.
Named a 2015 Best Summer Book by Publishers Weekly, Flash remains a top book to read and share with others. It's both funny and touching, and I am bowled over that people love it so much they buy copies to give away! It is now in paperback, which makes it even better.
With Christmas right around the corner, I want to help you finish your Christmas shopping AND give you a gift in the process! Here's what I'm thinking:
Purchase a total of five books (any combination of the memoir and/or children's books) and receive a copy of Made to Belong - A Six Week Journey to Discover Your Life's Purpose as my gift to you!
This book provides a simple daily devotional, plus prompts and questions that are perfect for personal or group study. It is a brand new book, which I wrote as a resource for The Belong Tour, and its message is near and dear to my heart. As a "late-bloomer" to discovering my own purpose, I know you'll enjoy walking with me through the pages of Habakkuk as our inspiration for this workbook.
There are two ways to take advantage of this!
1. You can order directly from my store to receive signed copies. These are a little more expensive, but they are personalized by both Flash and I! I have a very limited quantity, so it will be first come-first served. If you'd like your books personalized, this is for you... but you'll have to hurry.
2. If you prefer Amazon, you can order there. After you order, email a copy of your receipt (a screenshot will work), along with your address, and I'll put Made to Belong in the mail to you, as my gift. Send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. This way is super easy and quick, and a bit less expensive.
Remember, just order any total of five books to receive Made to Belong as a gift. I hope you'll keep a copy of each to keep for yourself!
I so appreciate each of you reading my blog and books throughout the year.
I'm looking forward to 2017 and sharing my heart especially for us "older moms" and women in transitional seasons of life. We need encouragement, and I'm here to remind you that you are loved and you are important to God.
You are a blessing to me, and I am grateful!
