New Delivery

I finally have in my hands, after much writing, editing, and formatting, the Leader Guide to go with my Risking It All: One Woman's Adventure Giving Away Her Income. If you are part of a Bible Study group, a Sunday School class, or even a monthly book club, you may want to take a look and consider working through this study together.

From the back cover:

"With humor, honesty, and encouragement, Jill:

-Shares the "hard" Bible verses about these difficult issues.

-Explains how to determine which charities use their funds wisely.

Offers a plethora of simple ideas and ways to give and make a difference.

-Recalls her thoughts, feelings, uncertainties, and joys throughout her year of giving.

-Confronts our mindsets about the people all around us.

-Provides discussion starters and project ideas relative to each cause.

Session topics:


The Homeless

The Hungry

Human slavery and trafficking

Widows and Orphans

The Thirsty

The Poor

The Sick

The Persecuted

The Naked

Those in Prison


This Leader Guide is designed for use with Risking It All: One Woman's Adventure Giving Away Her Income. Both the book and the Leader Guide are available on Amazon."

In addition to the completion of this writing project, I've been out and around, promoting my other books. I enjoy meeting all sorts of different people with unique interests at the various author events I attend.

In early February I had several book signing events. One happened during the weekend of the Lewisburg Ice Festival weekend here in central Pennsylvania. That event draws folks in from far and wide, and the crowds past my book table there in Jr's Soft Pretzels on Market Street were large. I think I showed a bazillion or more people how to twist a pretzel! (Sold a few of my Twisted: Mindful Pretzel Consumption books too, and ate some yummy, warm soft pretzels on the side.)

At the end of February, I participated in an Author Panel at the Well Coffeehouse of the Christ Wesleyan Church in Milton, Pennsylvania. Sue Fairchild, Carrie Anne Noble, and I read portions from several of our books. (And I drank an exquisite coffee concoction called a "Monkey Business.")

My schedule of author events for 2020 - book signings, speaking engagements, workshops, and demonstrations - is filling up fast. I still have openings, and I enjoy speaking on topics related to the subjects in my books. Please see "Speaking/Events>>Speaking Topics in the menu at the top of my website in case your group needs a speaker for an upcoming special event.

Thankfully Spring is right around the corner, and along with it I'll have more adventures and writing news to share.
