God is Good

Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savor of his knowledge by us in every place.  II Cor. 2:14

Writer’s Retreat

I had a wonderful weekend at the Women’s get-away Writers Retreat. It was a refreshing time with friends at a beautiful campground near Racine, MO. Ginny Polentz and I had an interesting trip there, with some unplanned scenic side trips. We enjoyed the beautiful colors of the trees.

My newest book! Available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

I didn’t get as much writing done as I planned, but Sharon Kizziah Holmes, with Kids Book Press, and I worked on my children’s book, A Christmas Treasure Hunt.  It was released on Tuesday, November 6th and is available on Amazon.  https://www.amazon.com/Christmas-Treasure-Joyce-Valdois-Smith/dp/1945669640

Beautiful scenery at the retreat.
A wonderful group of writer friends.  Ginny wasn’t feeling well.
