God's Blessings


This week was a rough week for me in many ways, but God decided to drop some blessings into my life and I want to share some with you.

I received a children's book in the mail called Super Sushi Adventures – The Fun Begins, by a 10-year-old girl named Krithi Munagala. 

Krithi's mother hired me to do editing on the book and not only was she wonderful to work with, but the book is SUPER fun!! It was an honor to receive her book and be mentioned in the Acknoweldgements.


You can find this book on Amazon (don't forget to leave a review!) Super Sushi Adventures on Amazon, and also please visit Krithi's website, Kreative Krithi.

Next blessing was that I was named Children's Author of the Month for July for Wildfire Publications Magazine! It's always an honor to be recognized as an author.  Please check out their July issue by visiting http://www.lulu.com/shop/susan-joyner-stumpf-and-deborah-brooks-langford/wildfire-publications-magazine-july-1-2018-issue-edition-12/paperback/product-23702879.html!!

And last but not least, today my husband and I went up to Cooperstown, NY, to grab an iced coffee and walk by the lake. To my delight, the local library was having an outdoor book sale!!! I was in my glory. These are my finds.
Since I'm an author and editor, I'm never opposed to gaining more knowledge, hence the book Extra Grammar and Writing Exercises.

The Mary Higgins Clark book is neat because it's a memoir of her childhood and since she is one of my favorite authors, I know I'll love to read about her!

I collect old classics so I picked up Three Great Novels (Treasure Island, Kidnapped, and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde) by Robert Louis Stevenson, Green Mansions by W.H. Hudson, and Vanity Fair by William Makepeace Thackeray. And of course A Midsummer Night's Dream by Shakespeare.

Along with continuing to write my children's books and novels, I'll be happy to read my fun finds (all $1.00 each!).

So no matter how bad my days/weeks are going, I'm always going to try to see God's blessings because to me, these certainly are.
