Celebrate with Me!

I just hit the “SEND” button to deliver our manuscript to the Publisher right on time.  Awakening the Creative Spirit: Bringing the Arts to Spiritual Direction (co-authored with Betsey Beckman) is scheduled for publication in early February 2010 by Morehouse (SDI Imprint Series).  More details to come!  For right now I am just going to celebrate the completion of this phase of hard, hard work and what has been a labor of utter love and passion.  (oh and now to get some of my other work done . . .)
