A Wonderful Place Called Apple Tree Bookshop

Wednesday, January 20,2010, I will be at the Apple Tree Bookshop at 6:30 p.m. and you are all invited to join me there. It will be a special after-hours party with food and fun. I shall be telling the story about the story and selling and signing my novel Tilly's Song. If you have never been to this wonderful place in Eagle River, Alaska, please check it out. It is located in the large building on the old Glenn Hwy. next to the Jacuzzi store and where Greatland Christian Cache used to be. It is across the street from Alaska USA Credit Union and close to the Taco Bell. It is easy to find. It looks little from the outside but once you step inside it is a feast for the senses. Terri Mize is the owner and her positive easy breezy personality feels the store. There are new books, slightly used books, loved books, gifts, jewelry, scraves and delicious candies. I hope I got your attention with all these goodies to look at and of course to buy. Come join us and let's have an evening of chasing the winter blues away!

Happy New Year's Resolutions

Hello and Happy New Year! I have a new exercise program and I am looking for others to join with me in getting some good workouts in 2010. As with any new program to build healthy habits, this is going to require some commitment and good ol' 'stick-to-it-ness'. So are you game to try? Here it is:
1. Exercise by walking in faith.
2. Exercise by getting on your knees to pray--several times a day.
3. Exercise by pushing away from temptation.
4. Exercise by taking in deep breaths and singing out praises.
5. Exercise by running to your loved ones, throwing your arms around their necks and telling them you love them.
6. Exercise your eyes, brain, heart, and spirit by reading aloud the words from the Bible.
7. Then rest in peace knowing God is your exercise partner and He will carry you throughout the day and night.
Send me an e-mail at if you want to join and let's see how much excess worry weight we can all shed this year.
