Welcome Friends!

Hello and nice to meet you!

You can read a little bit about me over to the right there! and If you read the posts below…you can find out a little more. Oh, and right now…I’m writing to you from Hong Kong, where I’m participating in a Women’s Conference. Wow. But, enough about me…let’s find out about you.

Please leave a comment so I can go check out your blog! And, you can sign-up to receive my blog right in your mail box! I’ll be giving away a copy of Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World and Having A Mary Spirit during the blog party!

And starting next week I’ll be giving away one of my books each month to people who leave comments on my blog.

So let’s get this PARTY started! I want to share something that has been oh-so-very helpful to me!

I discovered Laura Leist’s book Eliminate the Chaos …and so I bring to you her “Tossing” tips.

There now you have it…permission to throw away all that clutter. I promise…it’s so freeing!
