Planting God’s Word to Grow Relationships

Planting God’s Word to Grow Relationships (Continuing our fruit growing process)   In the last post, we mentioned the humus soil that needs to be in Little Pot … which for each of us represents HUMILITY.   Since then, our saints have learned about the seed that needs to take root. The seed is God’s Word. […]

Contain Humility

      Humility   This week our saints are focusing on humility. At CCA we illustrate it with placing dirt into Little Pot.     Our word humility comes from the Latin word humus. Humus means good soil. We tell our saints that Little Pot wasn’t excited about being filled with dirt. However, […]

Our first chapel of the year

  Friday, we held our first chapel of the year. I love Chapel. It is the time each week that our whole school comes together to worship. This year is extra special because we have a new stage and are able to use the cafeteria. (We have outgrown all other rooms in our school). The chapel […]

Time to SHINE

  The 2014-2015 School Year has officially begun! On Tuesday, August 26th, our saints will bust through the doors with smiles and anticipations of all that is to come. One of the main reasons I love education is because each year creates a fresh new start. This year begins my 5th year at CCA and […]

Reflections of 2013 and Expectations for 2014

I love New Years. It is a great time to reflect and think about choices we’ve made and what we want to accomplish in the next 365 days. I’ve been preparing for a new ladies Bible study in January that begins with the idea of, “What do I want to get out of this”. That […]

Profile Information

Something About Me and My Book:
Growing up, I was always told, “You can be anything you want to be.” The youngest in a big family, I felt pressure to “be” something great! When it came time to go to college, I believed I wasn’t just choosing a career. I was choosing what I would become. I chose to major in education and became a teacher. I loved being a teacher. almost as much as I loved teaching. Then I became a wife and mother. They are all great things to “be”. When one of my daughters became very ill, I was forced to leave the teaching field and stay at home. While struggling with the thought of not being a teacher anymore, I worked at home, became a business owner and fundraising director. I was then offered a job in a huge corporation as a sales director. I began to climb the corporate ladder striving to be better and better. It was hard for me to make sense of who I was during this time, and if my life had one purpose. Through all the jobs and titles, I began to realize that my greatest purpose is to show love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness and gentleness to others. These qualities are known as “fruit”, To be a little pot or a container where this fruit can grow inside of, is the best thing anyone can “be”! So now if you really want to know who or what I am, I proudly say, “I’m a Fruit Pot.” - My books help to tell that story and show others how they can bear fruit themselves.

I am sending this out to BMN members who specialize in any aspect of children's book publishing, whether your an author, artist, publisher, or offer some other valued skill needed in the creation of children's books.

I invite you to follow my blogs and comment, critique, and network with me as friends (so I can follow your work too).

I have found ning in general to be the best marketing and reference tool compared to any advertising, networking, or leads I have ever used -- free or paid for. And all it's costs is our time.

Many of you are already in my friend network, and thank you for sharing your work with me. For those of you reading, this that I have not introduced myself too, I would like to now, and ask we be friends so I can follow your craft as well.

We all need to support each others work through this economic distress, no stimulus or bail out is going to help us.

In my latest blog post, you will also see three other ning networks that I have created. One for children's book professionals/enthusiasts, one for southern/Tennessee writers, artists, etc., and one for WillowRaven clients (present, past, or future) or simply just fans of my work. I invite you to join the appropriate ones for you as well.

Hope to see you at my blog,

Aidana WillowRaven
