Elaine and Becky

Hey Everybody,

Above are two of the wonderful new friends I made this past weekend at the LifeWay Christian Store in Hendersonville, TN! The book signing was so much fun, and part of that was because this LifeWay store is a very special place. Each of the employees considers their position at the store not just a job, but a ministry! Elaine and Becky are two of the friendly, warm faces who welcome all their customers like friends and family!

I'm just going to post a few pics from my fun day! My friend Janet, here in the pink, is a gift from God. I will never forget my introduction to Janet's family. Our kids were going to be playing softball together (this was years ago), and during sign-ups, I was the person who was going around getting everyone's name. When I got to Janet's husband, Don, I said, "What's your child's name?" And he responded, "JEREMIAH--like the prophet!" I knew immediately that I was going to like this family!

My dear friend Sherry (with Rich and me) is the gal who did all the graphic design in my Bible studies! Sherry has such a gifting in arts and organization. Sherry and her husband and Rich and I used to teach a Sunday school class together many years ago for young married couples. From that one class, God has done so much and transformed so many lives! Rich and I, for sure, wouldn't be doing what we're doing now if it hadn't been for the training ground of the Open Door Class!

This precious young woman bought FOUR books! :) This is my beautiful friend Sondra! She (along with my friend Ginger) were the inspiration for Baby Boot Camp! Sondra, you sweetheart, you have always been so supportive of me and my work! Thank you for that!

Jeri, who is also an original member of the Open Door Class, stopped by with her kids who are TOO CUTE, and I had a surprise for this gal. She is on page 141 of the book! She has been instrumental in the lovely's life in that she was her first piano teacher! (get it? instrumental? LOL!) Jeri and her husband Stephen are so precious to us. Stephen was called into the ministry, and the two of them ran away to seminary :) , but now they serve at a church close by. God is so good!

My sister-in-law and her beautiful girls came by (of course, I didn't have the camera out then) and so many other sweet folks, including several of my students--and each one will receive a whopping 15 points for taking time out of their Saturday to come by and see Mrs. P! I hope that one day in the future I get to go to a book signing for one of them! THAT would be something!

It sounds like a great day! I'm praying that one day I will be posting pics of everyone at CK's book signing.

What a great day for you. I'm so glad your book signing went well and that God has blessed you with these sweet sisters.
