Girls Write Out
Monday, September 26, 2011
Today's my first day back from the ever-amazing ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers) conference. Normally this is the place where we girls gather every year, so there was a hint of sadness for us (Colleen and me) that we couldn't all be together this year.

But we made the most of our time in St. Louis. Praying for Di, corporately and privately, made us feel close in spirit even though we were far apart physically.

The conference was a whirlwind of networking, worshipping, learning the craft, praying, spending quality time with our Thomas Nelson friends and our agent, meeting new friends, and getting reacquainted with old ones.

Our generous publisher presented complimentary advanced copies of "Smitten" to all 750 conference attendees! We're so thankful for their support and excitement about a project that's so dear to our hearts. Here we are proudly holding our copies.

It was heartwarming to see and hear about so many selfless acts of love at the conference. I saw others give up their seats at editor tables so other writers could pitch their manuscript. (You have to be a writer to fully appreciate that!) People giving up class time to pray with others, and many other selfless acts. The spirit of love at this Christian event is a testimony to Christ's love.

What was the last selfless act of love you witnessed? Or the last selfless act bestowed on you?

I see selfless acts of love daily. My parents are devoted pastors who are dedicated to their flock. when my dad started in the ministry, he gave up his job because thats what he felt God had told him to do. he doesnt get a fixed salary, so we live by faith day by day. my parents are so devoted that sometimes they put the church before us (my sisters and i). when was younger, i couldnt understand that, but now i do. i want to be like that. selfless in everything i do.

Your parents sound amazing, Ruby! My grandma was like that. Never thinking of herself. I aspire to be like that someday.

I have my copy of Smitten right here and can't wait to read it. When I saw it at my place at the dinner table I practically shouted "Woo Hoo!" as I've been wanting to get a copy & hoped TN had been able to get it printed fast enough to be in the bookstore. This was even better! Love the idea and all of you write so well. It's sure to be a winner.
