March...how did it get here so soon? And now we are well into the month, and I can hardly believe that, either. One good thing is that there's hope of seeing spring soon, after having one snow storm or ice storm after another. Three more inches and we'll set an all-time record for snow here, I've heard.
Cara mentioned the ACFW conference, and I just wanted to add my "Amen!" to all of the positive things she said. I attended my first ACFW national conference last fall, and even before it started, the hum of excitement was palpable on the ACFW loop. I soon found out why. It was a beautifully run conference with fabulous speakers, and there were many opportunities to chat with the various editors and agents throughout the conference--not just at special appointments. Even better, there was such a positive, Christian sense of fellowship and caring throughout every single day! I'm already counting the days until this year's conference begins.

Many thanks to Cara and all of the ACFW members who are working so hard to make this year's conference a fantastic experience for everyone who attends!

Roxanne, you make the ACFW conference sound so good! I'm a member, but unfortunately, I can't go this year. I'm so sorry I missed my chance when they had it nearby in Dallas. :-)

You guys all do a wonderful job on your blog.

I would love to be entered in the drawing for your book.

Spring has almost sprung here. We have still gotten snow but it goes away almost the same day as it arrived. Most of the winter's deposit of that white stuff has almost all melted and the spring birds are twittering in the trees and air.
I actually KNOW someone who attends the ACFW conferences. How fun to know why my friend is so excited about them too.

Thanks for putting my name in the hat.
