On Saturday my family and I headed up to northwestern Wisconsin to The Wilderness’ Memorial Day weekend where I was one of the speakers at family camp (www.wildernessfellowship.com). It used to be my grandfather’s farmland until it was converted to a Christian retreat center in the 1970′s.
I got to speak on Saturday afternoon (in between thunder storms) and then sell copies of “Jak and the Scarlet Thread.” I also offered downloads of “The Story of Cactus Ranch,” a 10-episode cowboy version of the book of Mark in an audio drama format. It was a hoot to write, act and produce!
Met a whole bunch of fantastic people like the Durocher Family, The Amazing Jeffo, and others. One mom told me that her 12-year old girl, who had just purchased “Jak” the day before, had a very difficult time getting to sleep because she couldn’t stop reading “Jak.” The girl bounced up to my booth a little later and announced, “I love your book!”
