So glad I came to Blue Lake CWR
By Steve Duke
Last year, several people from Crosspoint invited me to come to Blue Lake for the Christian Writer’s Retreat. Even, my better half, Belinda encouraged me.
I sent my check, received my registration confirmation, packed my suitcase and pointed my truck northward.
There are not enough superlatives to describe that three-day experience. I met some fabulous authors, editors, bloggers and others in the publishing industry. I made dozens of new friends. Collectively, they have been my Barnabas. They have encouraged me to try to new things, to risk stumbling and to push on.
Thanks to editor Susan King, I have been published in Short and Sweet Takes the Fifth. Children’s writer, Michelle Medlock Adams penned the Dinosaur Devotions which I gave to me eight-year old grandkids as a Christmas gift.
For anyone with a hint of an interest in attending, I say this. “Do whatever you have to do to come to our retreat in March 2019.”
I will tell you how positive I was. When registration for 2019 opened, I was the first to send my check. My office staff has already been told that I will be absent for those three days.
Bring your cameras and cell phones. The beauty of Blue Lake is fantastic, especially at sunrise. Plenty of photo-ops.
The food is very good. The keynote speakers are beyond inspirational. There will even be a laugh or dozens.
Yes, it is that great. Come join us. I feel confident you will feel the same.
