So why haven't I posted many updates during this book tour? Because the schedule has been insane.
Monday included a homeschool group, a bookstore signing, a long drive out to Poulsbo, a banquet speech with a writers' group, and a drive back to the motel.
On Tuesday, I spoke at a school's chapel service, then stayed to speak five more times to various classes. When that was over, I promptly drove to Sequim, which took well over three hours, and spoke for two and a half hours to a homeschool group. Then, I had to drive three hours back to my motel.
On Wednesday, I did a 4.5 hour seminar with a homeschool group, drove to North Bend to pick up my daughter, then drove to Canada.
Thursday included a one-hour talk to the entire MEI Middle School, then four writing workshops for various grade levels. When I got back to my motel, I collapsed on the bed and slept until morning.
Now it's Friday, and I have it pretty easy today. I speak to the MEI Elementary School this morning and drive to Surrey for a bookstore signing this afternoon. Saturday will include breakfast with fans at House of James bookstore in Abbotsford and a signing afterward. Then I will drive back to the Seattle area, spend the night with friends, and fly home on Sunday.
I appreciate your prayers. I have a sore throat, and I'm losing my voice. Please pray that I will endure and speak effectively. May God use me to reach many more young people with the love of Christ.
