Do You Know Who This Is?

This little girl (on the right) loved books and dolls when she was just a kid. (The other girl is her sister.) She grew up and...she still loves books and dolls. In fact she has built her life and careers out of both.

At the end of next week, her story is going up on my blog, When I Was Just a Kid and here's the story--she is offering some wonderful things to those who leave a specific type of comment.

First prize will be a complete set of her middle grade novels(ages 8-12) of real girls who made a difference. Second prize will be a complete set of her teen novels.

AND one more thing--she will offer one more prize if we receive 20 comments meeting the criteria she specifies for the comments. All comments will be placed in a drawing and one winner will receive a prize that will make you the envy of all.

Be thinking right now of a Christian girl who either made a difference as a child, or who grew up to make a difference as an adult in faith and life. As the time draws near, I'll give more details. Be sure to get everyone you know to come and leave a comment.

Stay tuned! You won't want to miss this special feature.

I know, I know! I'm raising my hand really, really high and wiggling it. Please, please . . . call on me! I won't say who it is, but I find her books delightful, easy to read and very engaging and I'm an adult! Her dolls . . . I can't say enough to describe what works of art they are . . . and how privileged I feel to own one of my very own, received as a gift from this very special lady.
Blessings, Crystal . . . and rest assured . . . a la Arnold . . . I'll be back!!

Hi Crystal -

When I was about 10 years old, we got a new pastor. His daughter was two years older than me, and sang in a trio. Seeing someone in my peer group so committed to the Lord had a profound impact on my life.

We remained friends until her death of Hodgkins Disease at the age of 29. Someday, I'll see Darlene again and let her know how much she influenced my walk with the Lord.
