so glad to have "bumped" into you at the conference
last Saturday. Happy to get an opportunity to express
in person for the writing class...
I have been attending these one-day
conferences since 1986, as well as attending a summer conference,
and feel qualified to say that, to date, yours has been one
of the most encouraging writers' classes I have taken.
I remember gleaning
inspiration with your quotes like, ... "God teaches us through our writing."
I was buoyed with hope even before I walked into your classroom!
Uplifted by your evident passion for Jesus, our Lord.
the advantage of viewing others from the back row, I don't
know if you noticed, but you had everyone's participation--even
the quiet ones. I believe it was because you were able
personally identify with and related to each person in the
room ... Even after
the class was dismissed
people lingered to talk about what they learned. ...
For the rest of the day, I heard snipets
of conversations of the class they "missed", to
little quizzes of those who took it to those who didn't, and
plenty of positive feedback from those who took the workshop
