Can't see images? Click here...Hello Everyone, Quick note to catch you up on the news. I'll be in northern California this upcoming weekend, April 28 & 29 at the Bay Area Book Festival. I'll be at the Outdoor Book Fair on Allston Way, Booth #142. If you are in the area please stop by, or if you know any mystery readers there, please let them know. I apologize for sending this to everyone, but I don't have a breakdown on where my readers are located. I don't ask for much personal information on the signup forms because people (me included) are uncomfortable when they don't know who's getting the information. I DO NOT SHARE YOUR INFORMATION WITH ANYONE.

Montana Child Protection Alliance
One of MCPA's board member's Denise Johnson had this idea and we are trying to get it going all over the U.S.  Please share with everyone you know.  If you are a prayer - please fast and pray for Children on Monday, April 23rd.

Justice was miscarried when Christ took on our sins, was beaten, tortured, slaughtered. The plan was that He gave himself as an offering for sin. He knows first hand what injustice looks like.

What if all in this group and all other groups that are advocating for children set aside a specific day to fast and pray, asking the Lord to intervene on behalf of our children? April is Child Abuse Awareness month...and our children are being abused by the very system that was supposed to protect them. Let's make Monday, April 23rd our day to fast & pray. Blast it on our pages. Ask everyone in our country to pray for our children. This battle is the Lord's and we desper…
