A New Contract!


See that pretty piece of paper sitting on my kitchen counter?!  That would be the reason that I’ve been all but MIA on social media and at social functions lately.  The reason that I’ve been prying into your personal parenting lives ad nauseum on Facebook.  The reason that I feel like jumping up and down and screaming right now…


Because that, my friends, is my FOUR book contract from Thomas Nelson.  Get ready for The Christian Mama’s Guide to just about everything, coming to bookstores in Spring 2013.

(Also, as a side note:  MY MIA status and constant peppering with questions will continue for the foreseeable future…all four books are due October 1st… so needless to say, if you’re wondering where I am, I’m probably writing)


  1. Wooooooooooooo-Hoooooooooooo! So excited for you! Congrats, Congrats on this amazing (and oh-so-awesome) news!


  2. Congratulations! Can’t wait for the books!

  3. EEEEEKKKKK! So excited for you. Four books. This October? Wow. Here were my instant thoughts:

    How many Oreos will you eat?
    Will you check yourself into a hotel room each weekend with your chips and salsa and coffee drinks? (I still remember and love that post about writing on a “supertight” deadline)
    Your kitchen counter looks a lot like mine.
    Are you left-handed? That’s cool.
    Your handwriting is pretty.

    Hooray for you!

  4. What can I say? I’m over the moon happy for you, friend. I just told the kids today and they were thrilled for you, too. They truly were.

    David said he was still willing to take his shirt off and sit in a spinning chair under a spotlight if it will sell books for ya. I told him you don’t need his help anymore.

    Love you friend. Rejoicing in what God is up to in your life. xo

  5. That is so utterly amazing!! I’m so proud of you and I don’t even know you! Yippee!
