We say it every year, but sure enough, 2020 is flying by. February is almost history. March (and spring!) are just around the corner.

It's been a busy month for me. Keep reading to see why.

I've created a free gift for you (my subscribers) only. If you enjoy it please share this Newsletter with others. If they subscribe they'll also receive the gift.

I've collected my Poems for the Seasons for your pleasure.

Please enjoy them, read them to your kiddos or students. But don't reproduce them or share the file electronically. Teachers are welcomed to use the poems in their classrooms.

I would LOVE to receive emails from teachers or their students about the poems. And illustrations! I'll feature them in next month's newsletter. Come on, teachers!

Please, make me a happy author!

Last month I told you that my word for 2020 is REMEMBER. I've figured out one way the Lord wants me to REMEMBER in 2020.

The Lord has led me to REMEMBER some old and dear writing friends. He has led me to join (again) the Write2Ignite Planning Team. Our next event will take place in September 2020.

I'll be telling you more about it in my March newsletter.

God has also told me to REMEMBER that I am not called to be only an author. He has called me to be a leader--an influencer for His glory.

What or whom does God want YOU to remember this year? Would you share by emailing me about it? Thanks.

Prayer Requests

Please ask God to teach me as I study in depth about writing extraordinary picture books that will touch people's lives. I am grateful that God has sent two picture book authors to help me on this journey.

Thank you for praying for my family. My son's health has improved. Please continue to pray that his immune system will strengthen.

My daughter and her children came for a visit last week. Being a grandma (Meme) is THE BEST job in the world! We had a wonderful visit and family dinner with all my little chicks in the nest. I am sneaking a photo in below this section.

Please pray for God to lead us as we (I am part of each team) at Write2Ignite and the Kentucky Christian Writers Conference plan this year's events for His glory.

Book Reviews

You can be a BIG blessing to me and to other Christian authors that you appreciate.

Just write two or three sentences that tell what you honestly think about a book for Amazon, Barnes and Noble, FictionFinder, GoodReads, or BookBub.

You can even copy and paste the same exact review on more than one site. Please give it a try for God's Blessings of Fall. It will mean a great deal to me and to Little Lamb Books. Thanks, faithful friends!

Reviews help readers find the kinds of books they want to buy. And, getting a positive review is a HUGE blessing to every author.

Parenting God's Way

“…it’s important for parents to be parents and to take time for training their children. Mutual respect should be enforced at all times.” “…provide an environment of mutual respect, kindness, and balanced discipline when it is needed. You see, behavior is learned.” (From page 169, Parenting Your Powerful Child, Dr. Kevin Leman) “Psychologists sometimes categorize parents as being AUTHORATIIVE, AUTHORITARIAN, …
