Great Week for Leah

Leah, our oldest daughter, has had a wonderful week. She is in her final week at Lipscomb University finishing her Master's Degree in Education Administration. I am so proud of her! She has maintained a 3.90 grade point average while taking care of her two children now 3.5 years old and 19 months. She is a good mom and wife. How she does it all amazes me. She will graduate May 9th.

Thursday she gave a presentation on the research she did on teaching special education children. One of the LU faculty members was so impressed with the presentation that she is now working on securing funding from Vanderbilt University so that Leah can continue her research in a full-time effort. Leah has a passion for children and a head full of ideas to help them learn more readily. Being a youth ministry major, she has been trained to work with kids in a variety of ages.

The exciting news is that she submitted a summary of a book she has written to a literary agent and he/she has asked for three to five chapters of the book so that they can make a decision about publishing it. Wouldn't it be cool if they give her a contract? Maybe I will get to go on her book tour!

Leah has always dreamed of being a published writer. She has the gift of putting words on paper that people want to read. Her book is good and the story flows well. I hope you get the opportunity to read it soon.
