Springtime

Daffodils and little lambs remind me that Springtime is upon us and Easter is near.

When I say down to write SHEPPARD’S LAST LAMB it was definitely about Christmas shepherds and so much more. Christ is our Shepherd. Christ is the lamb brought to the slaughter, perfect and pure.

Spring cleaning brings an opportunity to go through all the past, and make room for the future. Grudges are released like pollen into the air, irritating but necessary. I fuss with some and left go of others like dandelions (with a big roar).

Little lambs blet and blurt. I find that I wobble so much and then I remember that this is the time to start anew. I’m thankful for learning to do things the right way.

It’s refreshing to let go. To live free. To be unsheltered and roaming long enough to discover something divine.

May you enjoy your Spring time. . . a season filled with options! Happy writing!!

Follow Christ

Sarabella Custom Jewelry hand stamped “Follow Christ” charms for me. They LOOK awesome and I’ll be handing them out when I do signings for SHEPPARD’S LAST LAMB.

I feel blessed to have such an amazing publishing team at Cedar Fort. They really do cherish their authors and I love their dedication to my work. I’m not very tactful sometimes, but they see in me the potential and strive to make my work better and ready for publication.

Sheppard’s Last Lamb – so many lessons to be learned from Sheppard and his quest to do his best, to follow Christ and help bring the Christmas spirit.

Sheppard Hill wants to be a wise man or an innkeeper in the Christmas pageant, but instead he gets stuck as the shepherd–all because of his name! What’s even worse, he’s stuck helping his younger sisters too. But when he begins to think of Christ, can he turn this terrible turn of events into the best Christmas pageant ever?

Themes include: Christmas Nativity, the Good Shepherd, Self-Esteem, Tolerance, Problem Solving, Embracing and Accepting Yourself, Diversity

Woohoo! You’ve read all the messages in your inbox.

*

That’s what I see at the top of my inbox.  This doesn’t mean I’ve replied to all my emails, but I have read them. I’ve even found some emails that motivated me to spend hours on the internet researching books, authors, and more writerly meanderings.

This upcoming weekend I’ll be attending a baptism for my niece (one of the 25) who will become a member of the Church of Jesus Chris of Latter-day Saints. I’m sure excited that she’s already got copies of my books “I Want to be Baptized” and “The Holy Ghost is like a Baptism” because that means I get to shop for something else (maybe a Minky Couture blanket?).

But I just wanted to say THANK YOU to all of the 18000+ folks who have buy my books for baptisms, confirmations, funerals…it’s a blessing to know the little inspired stories that I write matter to families and friends.

Enjoy! 

Smiles,

Annalisa
