Who has two thumbs and got her new website/blog set up and running live to start the new year off with a bang?
No, wait...I mean THIS GIRL:
Same difference. ish.
My friends, I have worked SO hard on getting a new site and blog created. That's why I look so tired in the picture above. I gained a new wrinkle for every 10 hours I spent working on this daggum thing. It's a good thing I finally got things in working order, because I was well on my way to looking like this.
It's a new year (for reals, HOW is it 2016??), and I have a new blog address and a sorta-fancy new setup. The new site offers ways to get in touch with me to schedule speaking/teaching engagements, and links to buy Free to Laugh merchandise (coming soon). I would also love to invite you to submit guest blog posts, so if you have a story and a meaningful lesson God's teaching you, feel free to write out a rough draft and send it my way (look for the "submit a guest post" button in the bottom right corner of each page).
I also have a new BOOK coming out soon!
Of all the fun things happening, I have to say I'm most excited about the book. #FeelFreeToLaugh (yes, that's the actual title) is coming VERY soon, and I couldn't be more proud. Even if my mom is the only one who reads it (thanks in advance, Mom), I'll still be proud because y'all...
I WROTE A FREAKIN' BOOK!
The book has some of your favorite stories from years past, and a whole bunch of new stuff that you'll (hopefully) love even more! It will be available for pre-order soon...and that's where you come in.
I need my Free to Laugh army to help me get the word (and the BOOK) out!
I need you to buy a book for yourself, and about 10 more copies to hand out to your friends! I need you to tell everyone you know to check it out. If they love it, you'll be their most favoritest person. If they hate it, you'll be...well...they'll love it, trust me!
Buy a copy for your best friend.
Buy a copy for your women's or family minister at church.
Buy a copy for your mail woman...lady...person...whatever you call her.
JUST BUY SOME COPIES!
I'll let you know when you can officially place your pre-order; in the meantime, there's one other thing you can do for me:
SIGN UP TO FOLLOW THE BLOG!
We won't spam you, I swear, and it will make the process of finding/reading new Feel Free to Laugh posts as easy as pie! Just add your email address to the mailing list sign-up form at the bottom left of any page and VOILA!
Tell your friends to sign up, too!
I can't tell you all how humbling it is that you read and champion the Feel Free to Laugh blog. I love writing for you, and I hope you walk away from each encounter with my stories understanding a bit more about God's love for you, His plan for your life, and who He made you to be. I hope you feel comraderie as you navigate this journey we call life, a sense that you're not alone in the fight. And I hope you LAUGH. Life without laughter is no life at all, so laugh often and laugh hard.
