There is so much to writing a book, but it is so much fun. Here Sam is with our publisher, Wendy Walters, of Palm Tree Productions, at a book writing conference this past year at Life Center in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Picking the right publisher is very important and what a find! We are so blessed to have Wendy helping us. She is guiding us every step of the way, and we need it with so much to learn. This photo is right after a great talk Wendy gave on declaring your destiny. She had each author write what they wanted God to do through them and plant it into the believing bucket. We are believing big things with many books to come for grandmothers, families, women and men. Believe with us and come see it happen April 29th, 2-4 at Pastariffic, Kokomo, Indiana.
