Update on Trinity Community Ministries meeting at Northside Methodist Church today

The purpose of our meeting with Trinity Community Ministries (TCM) and Northside Methodist Church was to strategize and plan for an event on April 17th.  The focus is to show people that until you are healed, you can’t be available to help others.  The financial needs at TCM and others ministries in Atlanta are great.  What an honor to have my book, “Our Southern Breeze” and my story of healing and restoration be a part of something so important for our city.  Please check out TCM website at http://www.tcmatlanta.org/.

Testing my blog

Great meeting with Trinity Community Ministries on the 16th

Looking forward to working with TCM to bring awareness back to Atlanta for the tremendous needs many of the ministries are experiencing.

Trip to Austin Texas February 1st-4th

I wasn’t feeling as strong as I hoped to be I left for Austin for several events that were planned for me by my dear friends Sue Langston and Barbara Holloway.

On the 2nd I spoke with a wonderful group of women at a Bible study and had an opportunity to sign books.  That afternoon I spoke at a church with about 30 women.  Again I was honored to sign books.

The next day Barbara took me to Seton hospital where she had retired as a Chaplain.  The meeting was with three associates she has previously worked with.  The meeting to consider having me come as a speaker went great.  I look forward to hearing the feedback from the gentlemen I met with.

On Saturday dear friends of Sue’s, the Bune’s, gave me a beautiful book signing at their home.  Of course Sue helped with her magic of decorating for the event.  That evening the Holloway’s hosted a dinner party with several of the dear friends I knew when I lived in Austin many years ago and again I was able to sign books.

By the time I headed home on Monday I was exhausted but happy at the wonderful feedback I am getting about the book.

Guess who missed the Dallas book launch?!

It’s been too long since I last updated my blog on Jan 11th.  My first book launch was on Sat. and by the time we got to Dallas on Wednesday I couldn’t believe what was about to happen.  Friday morning with terrible pains in my stomach and by 6:15p that evening I was having emergency surgery...my lower intestines had twisted.  When I finally woke up Sat morning and realized I was going to miss one of the most important days of my life, I tried not to be sad.  When it started at 2p all of a sudden I was at complete peace knowing that God was to be the STAR of the event.  After seeing pictures and the video, I was thrilled that so many of my friends and even people I didn’t know came to celebrate by book.
