IMG_0026FB August was an extremely productive month. It was time for the Greater Philadelphia Christian Writers Conference, teaching workshops, coordinating appointments, and networking.

It is a little easier for me to network than for the average conferee because I am the Appointment Coordinator for both the Phila conference and the Colorado Christian Writers Conference, so all roads lead thru me. But even for the average conferee, the chances to network abound!

I wait all year for this particular conference and, believe it or not, was so awed upon stepping foot on those "holy grounds" four years ago, I prayed to God right then to please move me to Mount Hermon, someday, somehow. Little did I know, God took me seriously and answered my prayer. I can almost–as they say in the South–swing a cat and hit the side of the conference center from my driveway.
