Process, Recovery, Execution--And a Winner!

Mindy here. This year's ACFW Conference was the best ever. But, alas, all good things must come to an end. By the time we drag our weary selves home, our sponges, aka brains, are full from all the good stuff we learned.

We return to our families in a bit of a fog and are greeted with laundry, errands, and other demands that we've gladly allowed hotel staff to handle for a few days. As we slowly recover from our sleep-deprived state, our brains begin to unravel and process all that we learned. Things solidify and become clear. And within the week, we're ready to execute.

I'm happily in the execution phase now, butt planted firmly in chair, fingers pecking steadily at the keyboard. And it feels good.

WINNER -- Last week I said I'd announce the winner of Janice Hanna Thompson's new book, Love Me Tender, on Friday, but I got sidetracked by our annual shoe contest. So, without further ado, the winner is...

Teri Dawn Smith!

Congratulations, Teri. If you'll provide me with your email, I'll get in touch with you regarding the specifics.

ANNUAL SHOE CONTEST -- Yep, it's still going on. Can you guess who our mystery agents are? Come on, take a crack at it. Even if you're wrong, your name will still go into the drawing. I'm chipping in a Walmart gift card, so whether you need office supplies, books, coffee, or chocolate, I've got you covered.

Happy Tuesday, y'all.


  1. I have no idea who the three agents are, but here's what I think so far... :)

    Angie: purple shoe at 9 o'clock
    Christy: black shoe with buckle 1-2 o'clock
    Jennifer: pointy toed shoe at 10-11 o'clock
    Lindi: Present in spirit, but not in shoe shot.
    Mindy: red shoe at 6 o'clock
    Missy: strap shoe with studs at 4-5 o'clock
    Mystery Agent 1: ? 12 o'clock
    Mystery Agent 2: ? 3 o'clock
    Dead Give Away Agent: ? 7-8 o'clock

  2. Thanks for guessing, Eva!!
    Those agents are tricky.

    And I know I've said it a couple of times, but those shoes are soo very cute!!
