See, you don't have to go far to witness God's glorious beauty.



These were taken tonight from the boat looking over Lake Lanier Islands Golf course.





Did you think you'd see a more beautiful view over our very own, quickly diminishing Lake Lanier?

When The Soul Mends by Cindy Woodsmall

Christy here:
This book is the third and final in this series and it is a MUST READ! I have never, when reading other books, been so divided in the way I thought a book should end and by the way I wanted it to end. I thought the book would end in one fashion and thought I wanted it that way, but Cindy Woodsmall really surprised me with this one.

Every character counts in her books and I must say I cared about each one. Even Hannah's dad, who I wanted to give him a good strong shake for being so stubborn. I love the supporting character of Matthew and wish he had a series all his own. Matthew's character was one I related to only because his struggles reminded me of some struggles my own loved ones have gone through. I didn't want him to give up!!!

I flew into Minneapolis around 5:30. I wasn't alone for long. There were a lot of ACFW folks waiting for the hotel shuttle. Once we settled in at the hotel, a group of about 15-20 of us invaded the Olive Garden for dinner...


Here's two of my good friends, Amy Wallace(Author of Ransomed Dreams and Healing Promises) and F.A.I.T.H. girl, Jennifer Hudson Taylor




And here's my roomie, and fellow F.A.I.T.H. Girl Mindy Obenhaus with new CBA author Beth Wiseman (Author of Plain Perfect)




And with F.A.I.T.H. Girl Angie Breidenbach is her Agent Tamela Hancock Murray.




Texas Ladies Anne, Dawn and Lena Nelson Dooley (Multipubbed author of more books than I have room to mention here!) share a delicious Gelato!



And here's the whole gang! I know the good people of Olive Garden were glad when all of us chatty authors left. But we had a great time. If you're ever in Minneapolis, visit the Olive Garden not far from the Sheraton. Don't ask me how to get there. I couldn't begin to tel…
