I think we’re ready to celebrate my redesigned website! Break out the balloons and noise-makers!
I’ve been prayerfully redesigning and repurposing my website. I hope you like it.
How about the banner? It was created by Kim Sponaugle of Picture Kitchen Studio. She captured my vision perfectly.
Please check out the Menu Tabs, too. I’ve reorganized some information for writers. I’ve added some fun pages for kids. As it becomes available I’ll be adding other stuff for teachers and conference leaders.
And my blog “Writing Encouraging Words” is still up and running. I hope to post a variety of things:
I’ll post every Wednesday.
I hope you’ll help me celebrate by leaving comments and sharing my website with others. I’m headed for FB and Twitter to post it. Will you leave a comment there, too?
Thanks, dear friends.
