So when I submitted my first short stories, form letter rejections sped to my mailbox. I scoured the magazine racks in the bookstore and found some about writing. In them I discovered names of books about all aspects of writing and lists of writing conferences. My husband let me out at the front of the hotel where the conference was held while he parked the car. I stepped into the area between the outer entrance doors and the doors into the lobby. A young lady came inside pulling a carrier stacked with books and paper materials.
At the threshold of the first doors when she pulled her carrier into the space where I stood, everything tilted and scattered around us. I timidly helped her stack things back as best as I could. The attendees appeared to know what they were doing so I watched and followed their lead. I joined the line at the registration table to receive my folder and name tag. I noticed that many folks were getting in another line before entering the auditorium, so again I followed. When my turn at the head of the line came I saw they had put their names on sheets for minute appointments, each sheet having a name at the top.
Instructions indicated these sheets were for time with editors and agents. As others filed into the auditorium so did I.
Alone among groups, I found a seat with nobody sitting on either side. Someone from the left got my attention by asking if the seat beside me was taken. I shook my head.

In the workshop sessions I made copious notes. I browsed the book room and it was like Christmas morning and finding delightful presents.
She probably could have told me so and to go sign up with a nonfiction editor. No—kind, sweet, and professional Karen Ball read each of my five prayers.

My next book, Imagine the Future You, will be out in a few short weeks. What will your life will be like in the future if you become all you can be? How are you working toward achieving your dreams for now and the future? If we take time to dream and to imagine, it often changes our choices and our future. The decisions we make ourselves affect our future more than those made for us. We have control of our attitudes, our work ethic, our sense of wonder, our faith to believe in God and for great things.
It is pretty much up to us where we end up in life and eternity. Imagine your story. What kind of story will you write with your life? Why you can succeed no matter what happens in your life and what other folks do. Imagine a unique You.

Imagine: Falling in love. How preparing yourself for love and marriage gives a greater chance for success.
Imagine: You on your wedding day. How making the right choice makes a difference.
Imagine: Reachable goals. The music changed. Churches developed satellite congregations. We have podcasts, and numerous other advances from modern technology. Thank God all my children and grandchildren know the Lord, are involved, and despite changes, God is still working.
But still, statistics show a large percentage of youth leave the church during or after college. What can we do? So, with that in mind, we can:. If we do this, we model our faith. The first four of the Ten Commandments have to do with serving and respecting God. The last six have to do with how we treat our neighbor. Much hinges on the fruit we produce and walking in the Spirit. The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like.
I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Why are you a Christian? Your children and grandchildren should hear your testimony. Did God change your life?
