I Won, I Won, I Won!


I got some exciting news on Sunday. I got a call from Mary DeMuth to let me know that I won the Cecil Murphey Scholarship for the Mt. Hermon's writer's conference in March. This was a wonderful surprise! I had entered an essay contest through an online writers' group I am a part of, and lo and behold, I won!

I promise, I have never won anything in my life, so winning this and the cruise too was quite a surprise! Now as soon as the cruise is over, I will have Mt. Hermon to look forward to. Getting to go to this particular writing conference is a dream come true! Thanks Cec and thanks Mary!
Pin It!

What a blessing! Noticed on the Mount Hermon website that Debbie Macomber is one of the keynotes. If you haven't already, you really should read her new book Knit Together. She shares her personal journey of writing over her entire life, rejections included. It reflects much of what you have shared in your own blog and encourages you to hang on to the dream God planted.
Best of everything to you!
