Books -- reading and writing.
Home, cooking, the weather.
And whatever connections I can make between these chapters of my life.

Traveling with Glory!

First stop in Maryland?
St. John's Episcopal School, Olney.

I knew it was going to be a good day when I turned into the parking lot. I love old churches, especially Episcopal Churches built over 100 years ago.

And there's always something interesting to see in churchyards, including beautiful flowers in bloom everywhere.

Then I stepped inside the school. Wow, what a nice welcome. Sweet tea, cookies, and tons of GLORY BE books on display and in the hands of readers.

Great kids. Terrific questions. A librarian connection!

(Loved this. I know what this student's favorite book is.)

 Thank you, St. John's School! More pictures soon.

Augusta - Thank you so much for visiting our school. Our girls were just bubbling over with questions and excitement! I can't remember in the last 7 years ever having a "real author" come to visit. It was great to hear about your sources of inspiration, and I believe you inspired some budding new authors. And now I know what doodlebugs are - my uncle gave this nickname to my daughter, but I thought he made it up! Please stop by again whenever you are in town. And best wishes for Glory Be, and your next 10 books.
