Happy New Year, everyone! What a great day the Lord has given us! Let's make sure we don't waste this precious gift we call time.
I had an awesome 2014 and I hope you did too. I received great medical reports from my doctors and that alone makes me giddy inside and very thankful to the GOOD LORD for taking such good care of me.
I sold a whoppin' amount of books to friends and strangers last year and I loved every minute of it. Last year I delved into the retail business in a different way. I started contacting retail stores to sell my books and it has proven to be a huge success. I just added two new stores last week: SHOE CHOO TRAIN in Conway, AR and PICKENS' FLOWERS & GIFTS in Star City, AR. I'm excited about working with the owners and staff at these fine stores. It's a great possibility if you live in these areas that you'll have the opportunity sometime this year to come see me at a book signing. I hope you will. If there are no stores in your area selling my books, let's see if we can work together and change that.
Last year I renewed my distributorship with the Juice Plus company and I'm off and running. I love sharing with folks how to get healthy. It's a passion I have to see folks feel better and know they are getting the nutrients their body needs to stay healthy.
Book-wise this year is already showing great promise. I have a new children's book that will come out in a few months and I have a surprise to announce later that I'm excited about. You don't want to miss it.
Nearly 40 years ago I decided to teach myself to crochet. I can do some of the basic stitches, but I'm not great by any means. So, this year I want to get great. I have some mentors near me that I plan to contact to help me get better. I'm stretching my wings and trying to learn something new this year.
I had hoped to hear at least one of my songs on the radio last year, but it hasn't happened yet. Maybe this year will be the year for that to happen. When it does, rest assured you WILL know. I'll make sure of that.
I'm still trying to put my house back together after Christmas. That will come in time. I love the holidays, but I also love getting back to normal. Back to normal for me means loving and taking care of my family and friends, doing book-related things, sharing good health with others and mainly sharing the GOOD NEWS of JESUS CHRIST with everyone I can. To those of you who don't know, I am a miracle 5 times. That's something I stay excited about. The Lord continues to keep me on this earth for a reason. I'm ready and willing to do whatever He wants me to do. I love this quote: "If you have a pulse, you have a purpose." Yes, that sums me up nicely.
Well, friends I need to get up and get moving. I enjoy my time with you. Please feel free to send me a comment or a question anytime you like.
Enjoy your day! Enjoy your year!
