St. Louis Day 1

Hello from St. Louis and ICRS! While the show officially opens at 8:30 this morning, the fun was already beginning yesterday! I had my first interview, which was with Laura Story. I met her two years ago in Atlanta and it was fun catching up and seeing how God has been working in her life...and hearing about her 9-month-old baby girl!

Yesterday afternoon I attended the AWSA Golden Scroll Awards Banquet. Here are the winners:


EDITOR OF THE YEAR: Sandra VanderZicht of Zondervan

FICTION EDITOR OF THE YEAR: Vicki Crumpton of Baker Publishing Group

BOOK OF THE YEAR: Karen Whiting and Jocelyn Green - Stories of Faith and Courage from the Home Front

NOVEL OF THE YEAR: Jeanette Windle - Congo Dawn

Following the awards presentation Lysa TerKeurst of Proverbs 31 Ministries gave the Keynote Address. As always, she was phenomenal. She is so authentic and always shares a practical message that resonates deep in the heart. I've been blessed to know Lysa for several years and it was fun to talk with her a few minutes before the banquet. She is such a sweetheart.
Today, I've got interviews with several authors, ACFW will announce the Carol Award Finalists, and tonight, it's the Christy Awards!
