Exciting News From Coffee Hour @ Chicklit Power

Welcome to Coffee Hour @ Chicklit Power and thanks for coming by. Grab your coffee and come on in. I have lots of news to share with you!

So who said that no news is good news? Oh, yeah, my editor, among others! LOL! As we get close to a month since the book was sent to the prospective agent, with no word yet except she is reading it, part of me is anxious, but a bigger part is excited and trusting that this book is speaking to her in some way and knowing that the rest is all taken care of.

In the meantime, there have been several people who have asked when our next workshop is, and at first I tucked those requests in the far corner of my mind, that is until someone then said, “You’ve got to keep doing these workshops every couple of months so people won’t forget you.” Well, I must admit, that sent my mind to panic mode, but only for a few minutes, and then I realized that there’s some truth in that because out of sight can become out of mind, especially since we are so information-overloaded.

Let’s face it; we are all busy with life, and everyone seems to be promoting something. Over the last several days, I’ve really had to search my heart and ask myself, “What are you trying to promote? Is it the book? Good deeds? Or is it the message within those things?” This journey has been a bit overwhelming at times, and there have been moments where I have gotten sidetracked, discouraged, and/or all wrapped up in doing the good things. But honestly, it hasn’t lasted long and it doesn’t change my true heart’s desire, which is to help people unpack the junk in their trunk, one piece at a time, so they can reach their own “Destination? Joyful!” And if putting on workshop-type of events helps with that, then let’s go forward.

So it is with joy that I share with you that our next “Destination? Joyful!” event will be Saturday, 11-6-10 @ 9:30 to 12:30 in the City of Redlands. This workshop is called “Keeping it Real Thru the Holidays.” I don’t know about you, but what used to be important way back when is not as important now. Wouldn’t it be awesome to truly be able to embrace the coming Fall/Thanksgiving and Christmas/New Year seasons without all the stress and anxiety that we tend to get caught up in? When someone asks how we’re doing, wouldn’t it be amazing to say, “I’m blessed,” instead of, “I’m STRESSED”? This workshop is sure to be a great stress-preventative and refresh you with new traditions, gifts from the heart versus gifts from the pocket and more heart-warming “Keeping it Real holiday info, and the cost is only $8!

PLUS, at this workshop, we will be releasing the first two items in our new “Destination? Joyful!” line – merchandise with a message – and by October 1, CPM – Chicklit Power Ministries – will be set up to accept Visa! In the meantime, you can purchase your tickets by sending your check to CPM, 33562 Yucaipa Boulevard, No. 4-411, Yucaipa, CA 92399. Everyone who attends will receive a ticket in the drawings, and the first 50 RSVPs will receive two extra tickets. Simply email nomorebaggage@chicklitpower.com and put your reservation in and when we receive your check, we’ll confirm it put your raffle tickets in on the day of the event. I hope you’ll be able to join us.
