Book Giveaway Love Is Contest 

Congratulations to the 💌 lucky winner: 

 Clarita Goodspeed | Moore, OK

Dear Reader,


It’s been a month of incredible entries for the LOVE 💕 IS______ contest. 

C. S. Lewis once said, “To love at all is to be vulnerable.” And we asked you, my readers, to fill in the blank. We chose one winner at random (Clarita Goodspeed- WINNER) But honestly, all of you are winners for having such profoundly beautiful answers. 

In these strange times during social isolation, when fear can dominate, let’s all fill in that blank. 

This word cloud shows us all the words you chose and it’s so beautiful that I think I will frame it! 

With Love,

To LOVE.png

Dear Reader,


“To love at all is to be vulnerable.”

That quote by C. S. Lewis is in his book The Four Loves. How would you fill in the blank of “To love at all is to be ______.” I think we each have our own word for different times in our lives~


Happy 💕  Valentine’s Day to all of you with so much love. 


In this newsletter, it’s all about love. The things I’ve found that I love and the books I’ve read about love. The news that has warmed my heart and the exciting things coming up! 


We are so close to the expanded edition of Becoming Mrs. Lewis in paperback (and I’ll be packing again to hit the road). 


Check it all out below. 


With Love, as always,


PS — If you want to keep up with all that is happening over the next months, please subscribe to my blog.
