LIMITLESS LIVING CONFERENCE (WITH DR. JIM RICHARDS AND DRS. BOB & AUDREY MEISNER) 

Earlier this spring, my husband bought tickets to see Dr. Jim Richards (Impact Ministries; http://www.impactministries.com/) and Drs. Bob & Audrey Meisner (My New Day TV; http://www.mynewday.tv/) at their joint Limitless Living Conference in Calgary, Alberta. Originally my husband had intentions to go to the Impact Ministries conference in Edmonton, but had to cancel when I realized that the date conflicted with another event I had committed to. Despite the conflict that arose between my husband and I (he…

HOW MY BOOK “THE TWO TREES” HAS IMPACTED KIDS 

Last week I had the opportunity to do my first out-of-province The Two Trees presentation to over 200 grades 2-5 students.

ALTERNATE BEGINNING FOR MY CHILDREN'S BOOK "THE TWO TREES" 


Although the story that eventually became the foundation of my first children’s picture book The Two Trees (2015) had been rattling around in my head for a while, I hadn't actually written anything down until I took an online course called “Write a Children’s Picture Book” from award-winning author Alice Kuipers a few years ago. 

The course was very interactive, allowing all participants to comment on each other’s pieces and encourage each other in our respective journeys to creating our children’s book…
