Update-2020 – Little did I know that my first year at Mt. Hermon would be the final year of the Conference. That saddens me. But it also reminds me that sometimes God interrupts our well-laid plans. He brings people and organizations to the forefront, and He ushers brings them to an end.
What a memorable experience the 2019 Mt. Hermon Conference was for me!
I’m not a big traveler, so flying from Louisville, KY to San Jose, CA was quite a trip.
Seeing that part of our country was a treat for me. The area around Mt. Hermon is gorgeous. The ocean, the mountains, the redwood trees–God is such a talented artist!
I met some amazing new friends and re-connected with an old friend.
I also received lots of much needed encouragement to keep writing.
I learned some new things in workshops. I chatted with a couple of agents. I worshipped in the wonderful and inspirational evening sessions.
My main goal is attending Mt. Hermon this year was to network–to make connections in the publishing world. I believe God did that. I was able to send my picture book and board book manuscripts to a couple of fantastic editors at Christian publishing houses. Thank you, Lord!
Now, we wait and see what God will do with those connections.
While I wait it’s on to–
