    If one could come to this it is possible to get a room for Fri and Sat at JPusa?

  • I just ordered a copy of Vinita’s book after taking a peek inside on Amazon. I can’t wait to read it. When will the conference be? I’m new here at the Mudrrom, so hoping I didn’t miss it.

    • Hey Trish! Nice to meet you. We haven’t set a date yet, but when we do, we’ll plaster it everywhere! Are you in the area?

  • Tammy,

    I am six hours north in Wisconsin, but my daughter is a junior in college down at Carthage in Kenosha. I thought I could possibly work that time into seeing her as well if timing works out.

    I have been wanting to attend a writer’s conference or workshop for years and am going to try and get to the BlueRidge Mountains Christian Writer’s Conference in May as well.

    Love the Mudroom!

  • I attend church a block from Wilson Abbey. Amazing place. Hoping to attend the next workshop!

    • Hey Natalie! I tried to contact you a few years ago but maybe I had the wrong info. It was through your blog. Do you go to Missio Dei, Uptown, or Immanuel?
