Merry Christmas!

Just one week until we get to celebrate Christmas Day! Here's my prayer: that we all understand exactly what was at stake when God sent Jesus into this world; that we all accept the gift; that we all live as if the gift really does mean everything; that we turn away from part-time faith and make a new commitment to follow Jesus.

December Update

Nothing new here - except it's December and Advent is upon us! From all accounts my Christmas book "In My Heart I Carry A Star: Stories for Advent" is selling well. There have been some excellent reviews and a lot of enthusiasm has been generated thus far.

The picture - to the left - is the full-page feature about me and my book that ran in the Tampa Tribune this weekend, November 29.

The new project is still in production. Everything is on schedule so far as I can see. Next up is the cover design.

In the mean time, MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! This time of the year is always a riot at our house.

Love and blessings - DEREK
