Where do I begin…tonight was a blast. First, we got to do our usual bedtime routine for Rand. Here’s Rand in his sleep sack ready to hit the sack, and me ready for a fun dinner out with the girls followed by…
A book launch party! My talented friend Rachel Hernandez wrote “My Secret Angel and Me” – a well-written beautifully illustrated book that is also a great tool for parents to teach their children the gospel story of Christmas, and it even touches on Santa (you could say it is the Christian version of an Elf on the Shelf type book). Brilliant. Not to mention, the book itself is a work of art by Ashley Adorno (Rachel’s sister-in-law). I can’t stop reading it. It’s already sold out online, but here’s a list of retail locations who will ship one to you…or even better…just keep reading…
So you may wonder…what’s Rach doing in this picture? She is signing a copy of the book & angel set for a Paper Road reader!!! This book set will be our very first giveaway (hopefully more to come). Here’s how to enter:

I’m so excited that Rachel’s book is our first fun giveaway. When I moved to Pinehurst, Rachel and I were introduced because her mom and my mother-in-law are friends. Rach invited me to join a bible study she was starting in her home and even though I barely knew her, I went. So did a bunch of other girls – none of us knew each other, but all were asked by Rachel, who was lead by the Holy Spirit (She invited a girl she met at mother’s morning out and another was standing in line near Rachel at Chick-fil-a)! Now, 3 years later, we are all still great friends and the bible study is still going.
11 super sweet ladies…would you believe that between all of us there are TWENTY-FIVE KIDS?! (some still in utero) What’s in that Moore Co. water?
Speaking of kids…Rand had on his Tim Tebow jersey today in support of his favorite football player.
And here he is working on his Heisman pose…
Wes and I wish there were a lot more Tim Tebows out there. He inspires us to be bold in our faith. CHECK IT OUT. (note: I fast forwarded and linked to the last of the interview, but feel free to start it over and listen to the whole clip)
