Lydia helpfully drawing names from one of the boy’s skater hats! That’s an apron tied around her head.

Thank you to everyone who posted comments on my blog during its May debut. And thank you to debut novelist Katie Ganshert for donating an autographed advance reading copy of her inspirational romance, “Wildflowers from Winter” for me to give away. I am happy to announce that the winner for the May drawing is suspense author Julia Reffner! For June I will be reviewing and giving away a copy of middle-grade novelist KD McCrite’s tickle-your-feet-funny book, “In Front of God and Everybody: Confessions of April Grace.” For a chance to win, post a comment on my blog anytime in June.  Stay tuned for periodic book reviews, monthly giveaways, and Monday meditations. Happy reading!
